Experience

I have 10 years of experience in Digital Media, Photography and Design, allowing me to maintain a wide variety of skills that assist in supporting students, professionals and enthusiasts involved in the Creative industries. Moreover, this September, I will be attending the Design and Digital Media MSc at the University of Edinburgh.

I have 8 years of teaching experience, my latest experience is focused on delivering courses in Digital Media and Visual Arts as well as my freelance projects. My everyday duties include consulting and advising clients/students on creative solutions, managing and developing course materials as well as reviewing my student's portfolio. I have taught other educators, art directors, creative professionals but also students of all ages and abilities, including individuals with behavioural problems and learning difficulties. Moreover, I have delivered bespoke courses focused on Adobe and Creative training for companies and institutes such as BBC, NHS, RBS, SKY, Channel 4, Barclays, SAAS, The National Gallery, ILGA-Europe and also delivered training days for several Universities and Colleges.

I hold a 1st (Hons) BA degree in Photography and Audiovisual Arts with specialization in Advertising Photography. Additionally, I hold a Digital Photography online course certificate from the University of Harvard. Furthermore, I am the only Adobe Education Trainer and one of the few Adobe Certified Instructors and Experts within Scotland. Because of my comprehensive knowledge of the Adobe Suite and Digital Media theory, I received a series of certifications from Adobe, such as Associate 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.

In addition, 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 thinking when teaching.

**Included with your training
- Work scenario-based training
- Workflow efficiency advising

WHICH IS THE GREATEST SATISFACTION AS A TRAINER?

I’ve been trained in all of Adobe Creative software, giving me the ability to help professionals in a variety of fields. I began by tutoring my classmates in university, making me realise my love for teaching, leading to my first tutoring position at the age of 22. I love using my knowledge to help and inspire people, giving them the opportunity to see their own visions become a reality. I feel a great sense of achievement and pride in helping my students realise their full potential in design or photography and that in itself is hugely rewarding.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU OFFER TO A STUDENT THAT WANTS TO BECOME AN EXPERT IN THE FIELD YOU ARE TEACHING?

In the words of one of my greatest inspirations, Sir Ken Robinson, 'If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original'. In the world of creative arts there is no definitive right or wrong, so as long as you nurture your inner child and do not limit your creativity you will go on to create great things.

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.

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!
