Interdisciplinary artist and lecturer teaching fine art, craft & design at school, college and university level including GCSE, BTEC and A level coursework and exam preparation.

Methodology

My approach to teaching and learning involves methods of practical exploration, engaging activities, and use of new media in order to engage students in the most suitable way. Using dynamic and original resources such as the 'colour theory magnet activity', I implore students to study technical and contextual art topics through innovative ways. I most recently created a resource to guide students through the appropriate artistic terminology to use and how to link their own work to art movements. This has been a great aid to students who struggle with sketchbook annotations.

Experience

I have been teaching for over 5 years now and providing online tuition for the last year; guiding students through the most difficult period in their educational journey. After qualifying as a teacher in 2017 I taught in Barcelona and Madrid for 6 months; giving me a broad range of teaching methods that meets students with various needs and learning styles. I have taught groups as large as 30 and groups as small as 3 and provided one-to-one support across a range of levels and courses including OCR and AQA BTEC, CamTech, A level and GCSE. My students have shown significant progression over the years and have allowed me to develop a well-rounded teaching portfolio of resources and activities. My experience teaching ages 14-80 and working with students from across the world has given me great insight into the varying ways in which individuals understand art. My primary focus is to develop the skills of aspiring art students and help them to attain the grade they desire.

My experience with De’Anne has been extremely insightful and enjoyable. Anytime I have asked for help she instinctively goes the extra mile.
I believe that in order for one to learn and enjoy learning, an individual must feel comfortable and confident enough in order to process that information. I believe De’Anne creates this open and encouraging atmosphere.
Her integrity for her work, heightened by her deep-rooted passion for art, is infectious. She is energetic, accommodating and courageous. Her desire to learn as well as teach makes her a respectable educator/tutor. De’Anne’s ambition to practice her profession deepens her understanding and subject knowledge thus allowing her lessons to be current and innovative. She prides herself on getting to know her students so that she can design lessons bespoke to the individual. Her experience with SEN students has resulted in her becoming even more meticulous and attentive in her nature. De’Anne is patient, receptive and hardworking, she really has time for those in need and her vibrancy is motivational in countless ways. Her drive to see her students grow and succeed is her sole driving force, De’Anne is trustworthy because she is selfless.
