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

Methodology

Since 2009 I have had the pleasure to work with a variety of students from different back grounds and with varying educational needs. Each student has surpassed their own expectations of what they could achieve, with some students going from receiving Cs and Ds to As and Bs. Being dyslexic myself, I really enjoy being able to help other dyslexics, or students with other learning differences, find their own way to learn and gain confidence.

I have worked with students age 7 upwards focusing on creative subjects, including Fine Art, Design, Photography, Textiles, Drama, Ceramics, Architecture, Product Design, Graphic Design and Interior Design. I am also able to support students with learning difficulties (dyslexia, ADHD etc) and/or mental health difficulties.

I have helped students complete their course work and essays, as well as get them prepped for exams. When it comes to the next stage of their education I have also taken students through interview techniques and writing applications for University.

Each students learns in their own way. I use the first session as an initial assessment 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 design 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 art, design and craft since 2009. I have helped students develop projects, supported sketch book development and worked on creating exciting portfolios for applications.

Details

FREE INITIAL ASSESSMENT - 30/40 MINUTES

The first free lesson I use as the Initial Assessment and this last for 30 - 40 minutes. In the Initial Assessment I will ask a few questions about what you need help with and what goals you want to set. This also allows you to ask me questions. If you are happy to continue with sessions after the Initial Assessment the full rate will be charged -

Online: £45 per hour


In person (travel is under 30 minutes and under one tube change): £65 per hour


In person (travel is over 30 minutes and more than one tube change): £80 per hour



CANCELLATION POLICY - 72 HOURS

Please note that lessons cancelled with less than 72 hours' notice are liable to be charged at the tutor's discretion. 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.


TUTOR CANCELLING SESSION

If the tutor needs to cancel the scheduled sessions within the 72-hour period, unless otherwise stated or agreed, there will be no charge.


DISCONTINUING ALL TUITION

Should the client/student wish to discontinue all tuition with the tutor, the client/student must inform the tutor with at least two weeks’ notice. If the client/student stops responding to all forms of communication with the tutor for two weeks and does not clearly state they would like to end all sessions, the tutor reserves the right to discontinue all tuition with the client/student immediately.

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.
