I am 26 and offer lessons to people of all abilities, whether it be a child of 4 or an adult of 94. I have many topics pre-planned with steps lined out, but I can plan new lessons based on the desires of the student(s). I have tutorial sheets I have made that can be used as well for further reference.
I am a professional illustrator and drawing tutor. For the past four years, I have been working in freelance illustration as well as teach drawing skills in after school clubs and classes for all ages. I graduated from an Animation degree with a First.
I do not drive (yet) so the travelling rates will vary depending on how much the public transport is and if it takes me a long time to get to where you are. The price stated is subject to change depending on whether it's an individual or group. Thank you.

I went to a weekly drawing class run by Ben for over a year. He was a great tutor. Friendly, reliable and encouraging, he was always enthusiastic and full of good ideas to help improve my drawing skills.
