London based artist offering photography classes where you will learn how to use 120 film, 35mm and digital cameras

Methodology

Each students learns in their own way. I use the first tutorial session to see what the best teaching method is for that individual, discuss what that individual wants to achieve, where the student feels they are struggling and develop a bespoke lesson plans for that student.

Super tutor

Kira Phoenix is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Experience

I graduated from Central St. Martins in 2010 (studying Sculpture) and from the Ceramics & Glass Masters programme at The Royal College of Art in 2015. I have been teaching photography, art and craft for over 10 years. I have helped students develop projects, supported sketch book development and worked on creating exciting portfolios for applications.

When making changes or cancellations to the agreed tutoring schedule please liaise with the tutor directly, especially outside of office hours to ensure tutors receive notice as early as possible.


ONLINE SESSIONS

If sessions are taking place over Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp Video the same cancellation policy applies. Please also note that if the student does not arrive within 15 minutes of the session starting and has not responded to any form of communication from the tutor, the tutor reserves the right to consider this lesson cancelled and will be charged.

If the client/student, after informing the tutor with notice, would like to start tuition again with the tutor, the client/student will need to be re-assessed to update any changes in circumstances or changes in goals. This assessment will be charged at the full rate and the client/student will need to sign a new agreement.
