London-based RCA Graduate offering Art Tuition for all ages, including Masters Level

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.

Background

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 art, design and craft for over 10 years. I have helped students develop projects, supported sketch book development and worked on creating exciting portfolios for applications.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5

Details

Once sessions have been confirmed the client/student needs to pay for two sessions prior to starting the tuition. There is a minimum of x2 hours per session. I have a 72 hour cancelation policy. If you cancel within this time the full rate will be charged. If you need to re-arrange the session, please let me know as soon as possible to secure your new session time.
