I am a highly qualified and experienced design and illustration tutor offering Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and portfolio building skills.

My approach to teaching is based on your needs and current abilities. I use playful exercises, dialogue and practical work to determine progress and to identify your needs. I can help you develop essential design and software skills and assist you with building a design portfolio of which you can be proud.

Experience

Working as a graphic designer and illustrator for many years, I am also a design educator who has over 20 years classroom experience in both further and higher education, specifically Graphic Design, Illustration and Fashion & Textiles. I can help you build a portfolio for college/university entry or simply help you develop your software skills. With regards to safeguarding, I can provide evidence of being a DBS checked educator.
