I tailor my classes based on each student's level of experience. Students can let me know the subjects they would like to cover before each session so that I can prepare to answer all their questions. I have a very calm and patient approach, having managed large teams of designers in practice.
I am an Interior Design Director with strong background in Hospitality, F&B and Residential Design. I graduated Birmingham City University with a 1st Class Honours Degree and I have over 8 years of experience in practice. Over the years I helped numerous students and Junior Designers with their development and training.
I can help you with the following:
- AutoCAD training (from beginner stage)
- Vectorworks training (from beginner stage)
- Adobe Photoshop & Indesign (from beginner stage)

Perfect! Ana immediately understood my needs and started tutoring right away even though the first session was free. She has a positive and effective communication style - I am looking forward to this collaboration.
I think Rikke explained very well what she wanted out of the lessons, she is a beginner in AutoCAD with a strong will to learn which is very positive and I am sure she will massively improve with a bit of help.
Ana has been a great help in providing aid with my learning in AutoCAD. During my university studies she has helped me to get a deeper understanding of the software. Thank Ana ! Greatly appreciated !
Ana is the type of professional that has integrity and you can fully trust. She can see the big picture, whilst also having a true ability to be deep into the weeds. When teaching her peers, Ana is very specific and is able to share a depth of knowledge and expertise that she built throughout her incredible career. I truly recommend working with Ana; her determination and ambition is quite unique and rest assured you will be in perfect hands to gain the technical knowledge you need within design.
I’ve known Ana for a long time and she is extremely passionate about arts and design. She has a lot of patience and will cater to any personality type - she’s a great choice for anyone looking for a professional and passionate tutor!
