One of my greatest strength is to push students to seek an understanding of what they create, how they perceive the world around them and the work they produce in relation to it. By nurturing each student's creative process and intelligence I am able to meet their unique needs and create a favourable work environment. Each student is encouraged to enhance its own personal skills through one-to-one support. My goal is to support students by developing their motivation, creativity and skills while showing them how art relates to political, economic and environmental issues.

Along with my passion for teaching, I practice my creative skill by working on different freelance projects and collaborating with artists. I have gain industry experience before graduating. My range of skills and my strong knowledge of modern cultural references and history of fashion and art support each student to develop meaningful projects with unique references.

Experience

I graduated from Ba Fashion Design in Central Saint Martins, I now work in freelance for design and pattern-cutting, developing my own brand along and I teach as well, I work during breaks on Central Saint Martins short courses as a tutor and I have over 25 regular students coming weekly for either french, sewing or pattern cutting tutorials, I also work in a various nursery as an art tutor and as a french tutor to build teaching experience and understanding. I worked 2 years in Atelier including as Pattern cutting assistant at Acne Studio, at Mary Katrantzou, Moschino and as a design and studio assistant at Samuel Gui Yang,

I have weekly students coming for over a year now and they are now creating their own design and working towards more creative models. Once the base is strong the teaching becomes guidance and showing different paths of realization for each design and helping the students to achieve them. A lot of students also book a large amount of hours for a specific project they want to achieve and they've all been really content with their achievement, I'm really grateful as a tutor to have such wonderful students and i really love my job.

Perfect! Excellent tutor! Helps you with whatever you want to learn and ensures you understand how to do it! Also has cheap fabric for you to buy and free calico. Took me from little confidence to being able to make trousers and a jacket. Couldn't recommend enough!

Jack is really interested in getting his skills to the professional level and eager to learn, no doubt he will do great progress quickly!

Emma gives me sewing classes since January. She is really reliable and trustworthy. I love to spend time with her as teacher-student dynamic and now as friends. She shared her experience and her passion for sewing and design. She managed to lead me toward my goal. Now I'm more independant but she is still present and giving me some valuable tips.
