Going through school and college studying Art and Design myself, I understand that it isn't always easy to jump through the hoops and tick the boxes that the exam boards require. It can also, often, take the joy out of the subject. My aim is to help students get the grade that truly reflects their engagement and enthusiasm for art, guiding them through the certain requirements that can often feel confusing or frustrating.
My true passion, however, is talking to people about art. Whilst aiding students in completing the requirements for an art qualification, it is imperative to me to keep that love of art ignited, and to distill and grow their interests in Art, Design and Art History. As such I hope to fuel ambitions and help students gain skills and understanding that will take them past A-level.
Recently graduated from Goldsmiths with a 1st class Joint Honours degree in Fine Art and History of Art, I am now interested in tutoring A-level and GCSE students.
I have previously tutored students in both GCSE art and A-level art and I am currently teaching after school art clubs to children between the ages of 5-11. I also have experience running art workshops for communities, children and for adults.
I have a love for Art, design, Literature and History and philosophy, pursuing these interests throughout my education.
