About the lesson
I look forward to welcoming and tutoring students who love a dynamic storytellers' approach to teaching. Our communication and understanding of the world are made through stories and it's vital that we figure out how to replace a narrative that isn't working anymore with a new one! I want to offer a tailored and personal approach to each student and help them not only get the best results but also enjoy the process of learning and explore their curiosity about the subject.

My name is Joana Avi-Lorie and I am a Portuguese-born architect,writer and researcher living in Edinburgh.
I will start a Masters by Research this year at the University of Edinburgh – School of Health in Social Sciences – followed by a Ph.D. where I will study the impact of the way that the media is delivering the message of Climate Change on children’s mental health and well-being.
I'm currently working on a series of articles exploring the relationship between the Climate Emergency and COVID-19 through the scope of the classic archetype of the Hero’s Journey. My latest and current long-term project is an adventure book series and animated series adaptation for children with the backdrop of climate change.
I managed several teams and tasks before as an architect, curator and art consultant, and I achieved a great result with my Master’s dissertation when I had to do all the research about Cognitive Development on my own in an intersectional approach to the subject of my studies. I have always been passionate about research, management, communication and stories inside and outside work, and I have a genuine interest in people and their work and excellent communication skills. I speak several languages and I have always been drawn and inspired by different ways of communicating, which played a role in my decision to work with autistic children and homeless people, some of the most fragile elements of our communities who in different ways struggle to communicate and be understood.
More than 5 years I have been her very close friend, and I have barely missed enjoying her literary, poetic and artistic works. The outstanding creative and poetic imagination along with the excellent skills in depicting the stories through the paintings have given J Avi-Lorie a distinct identity to be an accomplished artist per excellence. I have no reservation to recommend her as she would in turn be an great resource for Superof. Wish her all the best.
