Fashion designer with over 8 years experience offering fashion and art lessons

Methodology

I am an online tutor with a passion to help students achieve their personal goals, whether this is predicted grades, self initiated coursework or becoming an expert in the fashion, art or design industry from A Level through to degree and beyond.

Each lesson will focus on a clear objective or learning outcome, a practical based activity and constructive feedback. At the end of each lesson, a new objective will be set as agreed by both myself and the student for the following session as well as extra curricular activities to support the work undertaken to form a well rounded opinion.

I am a relaxed tutor and believe that the key to students success is passion, adaptability, honesty and for learning to be fun, not a chore!

Experience

Having worked in the fashion industry across the luxury sector over the past 8 years, I have an excellent skill set across concept, design and development with a wealth of contacts for future career opportunities. I am also a visiting lecturing position at Liverpool John Moores University, where I was appointed in January, providing one-to-one tutorials to students working towards their fashion degrees. I can knowledge on both two and three dimensional skills with specialisms including illustration, portfolio advice and leather and sustainable practices.
