Experience

I have 10 years of working experience in Design, Photography and Media, allowing me to maintain a wide variety of skills that assist in supporting students, professionals and enthusiasts involved in the Creative industries.
Currently, I'm studying MSc Design and Digital Media at the University of Edinburgh where I work with 3D, Motion Graphics, VFX and Video Games. I also have achieved a 1:1 (Hons) BA focused on Photography and Audiovisual Arts, where I had the opportunity to experiment with different forms of visual and digital art, whilst specialising in advertising photography and image editing. I have also achieved a Digital Photography certificate from the University of Harvard.

Since I started teaching in 2013, I have taught other educators, art directors, creative professionals but also students of all ages (7 to 70!) and abilities, including individuals with learning difficulties and behavioural issues. Moreover, I have delivered bespoke Adobe creative training for clients such as BBC, SKY, WWF, NHS, ILGA, Roche, The National Gallery and several Universities and Colleges.

Since 2015 I've continuously been one of the very few Adobe Certified Instructors and Experts. Because of my comprehensive knowledge of the Adobe software and digital media theory, I received a series of certifications from Adobe, such as Educator Specialist in Visual and Video Design, Digital Imaging and Digital Creativity Expert for classrooms, Expert in Digital Media and Creativity Training and Adobe Education Trainer, accrediting me to train other educators.

My latest experience is focused on delivering lessons and lectures in Digital Media and Visual Arts as well as my freelance projects.

Above all, I have successfully employed a motivational approach when teaching and found that this led to many positive student outcomes, such as developing their creative thinking. A key part of my career is helping students reach their full potential, which I work towards by focusing on creative and critical thinking when teaching.

I attended the Advanced Photoshop training which was excellent, Sofia was very intuitive to my needs and also adjusted the course to my needs. I would highly recommend Sofia as an instructor with comprehensive knowledge of the Adobe software.

Sofia is among the best tutors, that I had the pleasure to encounter, get to know and learn from. In addition to the creative skills that she helped me develop, Sofia is the most wonderful mentor and person, more than willing and able to give help, support and offer advice on work and life issues. I can't thank her enough for how she has helped me grow in confidence and understanding.

Vicky

As a complete beginner, Sofia took me from never having opened Illustrator to having a huge range of new skills, with unending patience. Sofia was also very knowledgeable about how to apply Graphic Design, Photography and Visual Media in general. I learned a lot around the set curriculum as well.
Hugely recommend!
