Trained Artist and Teacher gives lessons in observational drawing and handwriting to adults and children, focusing on technique plus expression, to beginner and intermediate level.
Through demonstration, explanation and questioning I teach you how to really look at the subject matter, how to compose pictures and use different materials in an expressive way. By showing examples, allowing time for practice and providing feedback I help students develop a personal style.
Grounded in italic writing at Primary school and having 8 years' experience as a Note-Taker for university students I am also keen to pass on the craft of handwriting to all ages.
I have a BA Hons in Fine Art, PGCE in Art & Design and some years as a practising artist.
As a tutor I build good rapport with students, stimulate them, am thorough, emphasise their strengths and address their weaknesses.
Increased rates if marking of homework is included or for travel further afield.
I operate a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you cancel with less than 24 hours' notice, then full payment is due for the lesson missed.
Perfect! My six year old daughter absolutely enjoys Helen's lessons and has made great progress already. Helen lets my daughter decide which to draw next week and then plans the lesson well experimenting different drawing tools. She gives enough instructions but she also makes sure my daughter finish her drawing independently with own expression and imagination. I'm very looking forward to seeing how my daughter progressing with Helen in the long run and highly recommend Helen without any hesitation.
I've been working with Shaolin's daughter since April and it's clear she's rather talented. Her work shows remarkable maturity for the age of 7 and she approaches new materials and techniques with great gusto!
Perfect! Helen is a wonderful tutor. Very relaxed and yet completely focussed on the task. I felt I gained skills right from the first lesson. Brilliant.
Steve is very amiable and easy to get on with and indeed a good student. He's very receptive and asks questions when necessary. He's a good learner, willing to try approaches and methods he hasn't used before. He'll do well.
