« Lydia has been an invaluable help to my son who was struggling with a university module. She was prompt in replying to my enquiry, even though she was on holiday at the time!!. Nicholas was able to discuss with Lydia the areas he needed help on and she focussed on these and guided and encouraged him through the module via Skype sessions. She also sent him notes on how to progress his work. It was such a helpful approach that made all the difference to my son. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lydia »

Lydia - Hemel Hempstead - Technology

Methodology

Designer, Art Director & Photographer with 20 years experience working for several household brands, & approx 15 years tutoring, training, mentoring experience covering design software, photography & branding, to professionals, students or amateurs.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Design - graphic design, logo design, typography and layouts, branding, for students of all ages, and professionals who want to build their corporate marketing materials or enhance their employee skills - logos, brochures, adverts, digital assets for online use
Adobe software InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, portfolio preparation, creative development for students, professionals and amateurs.
Workshops to help you develop your ideas, and evolve branding.
Photography, whether you need to learn how to use your camera for general use, or to take product imagery for example. I can also tutor Photoshop editing skills.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a degree in Graphic Design and 17 years experience working for several major brands as well as small start-ups. I also grew up being taught photography from a young age and continued this through my degree and working career.
I have undertaken many courses throughout my career to enhance my skills, and am able to offer a range of subjects incl web design, photography, graphic design and branding.

- How much do you charge?

From £45p/h. There is a reduced fee per person if more than one student is in the lesson, block bookings discounts are available.
For corporate in-house training sessions, please ask for a quote. I prepare training specific for 121 training, or for teams and offer notes for after the training sessions.

- Where do you teach?

Depending on the requirements, I teach in students' homes, in offices or at my home in King's Langley in Hertfordshire, I am willing to travel to areas in Hertfordshire, North / North West London, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. Please ask if I cover your area, I am also happy to do Skype lessons too, (I have several students who I work with solely on Skype). If bookings are for at least half a day, then I will travel further, travel expenses would be charged.

Some of the areas I cover:
St Albans, Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Harpenden, Berkhamsted, Tring, Chesham, Luton, Dunstable, Wheathampstead, Bushey, Rickmansworth, Leighton Buzzard, Chorleywood, Borehamwood, Radlett, Elstree, Harrow, Pinner, Hatch End, Barnet, Mill Hill, High Wycombe, Amersham, Northwood, Moor Park, Aylesbury, Potters Bar

- When are you available?

With notice, I am available most days or evenings by prior arrangement

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from ages 13 and upwards. I can teach students drawing, how to use different materials and have the confidence to be creative. I can also teach them the basics on the computer software right through to adults looking at a career change, or just to know how to use Photoshop for example.
I train adults to use Adobe software, develop creative ideas and how to help back up their design requirements.
I can help prepare students for portfolio reviews and bring out their creativity.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students in accordance to their syllabus, but also specifically for entrance to art and design courses such as degree and foundation courses.
When I do training, I tailor the courses to the business/employee needs.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tutoring can carried out over Zoom, Skype or Facetime, this makes it easier for students to work around work and family commitments and as long you have a quiet space it can work really well.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have art directed designers and have been commissioned through all of my roles for advertising imagery, architectural, portraits and studio shots (food and product), resulting in 1,000s of my photos being on travel brand libraries. I am passionate about learning in a creative way.
I am also dyslexic and have overcome this in my career, I therefore understand how to make the complicated software seem easier for students of all ages.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I can also provide references

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at Camberwell College of Arts in London, University of the Arts and graduated in 2000, and have worked in the design industry ever since

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have a range of students who vary from secondary school age through adults looking to change career. I also have worked with several clients where I have trained employees in their offices, and offered ongoing support.

Lydia worked with me over several years, taking the time to teach me each of the design packages, and creative coaching through my courses. Her teaching style is clear and helpful, and made it easy to learn and understand. She encouraged my creativity when I was under pressure with deadlines from my course, and provided me with notes and ideas. Lydia's training undoubtedly put me ahead of other students, her passion for design rubs off and I am now pursuing a creative career for myself.
