About the lesson
We will have a casual conversation discussing your portfolio, technical problems in software you may be having or anything else you might find useful to get help with.
I will be helping you by giving constructive feedback to strengthen your portfolio where needed and give you technical tips to help improve your workflow and improve your drawings.
At the end of the lesson, you will have the time to ask any questions regarding the application process, skills, technical issues, statement, interview, future prospects or whatever you feel you need help with.
You will have a clear set of goals for what to do next and have applicable methods to support your portfolio.
I did my BA Architecture at University of Westminster, graduated with a 2:1.
At the moment studying MArch in DS10 at University of Westminster.
I also work at Grimshaw architects.
During my BA applications I held unconditional offers from:
-University of Brighton
-University of Westminster
Perfect! Gives very good and detailed feedback on the work shown. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable on how to help a student elevate their portfolio contents and skills. She opened my eyes to information about criteria, work ethic, ways of doing types of work in portfolio that no one tells you about at university, which is crucial to know to do well at undergraduate level. Would recommend her to everyone who wants to elevate their skills with portfolio or needs extra help that tutors in university don't offer. So motivating to work with and learn from a tutor like this.
- Elizabeth's response : Keen to improve portfolio, receptive to feedback. Lovely person to work with.

When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
As a university student, I understand the struggles of keeping up with the brief, deadlines. It requires a lot of good time management and working smart. Your portfolio is the one thing you will have to showcase employers your skills and abilities, so it's important to make sure you do the hard work on time. Luckily, I've learned from mistakes, and I'm able now to help tutor others who may be struggling with portfolios and studio work.
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
I push to develop an understanding of the brief and what it is required of the student to get a high mark for studio. With a 90% score on my studio module, I have the experience and skill to know exactly what universities are seeking. Being receptive to critical feedback and most importantly doing a lot of mistakes is the key, but it also requires hours of work.
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Coming out of the university bubble into industry, has allowed me to gain professional perspective into architecture. Once students graduate they will have to learn how to transition from student work to professional work. This is a big challenge as the gap between university and industry in architecture is still big to this day. Requirements of what universities want to see and employers are two completely different things.
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
I am able to guide students to what they need to have in their portfolio not only to succeed in university but also to increase chances of employment after graduation. I wouldn't say I am passionate for tutoring, but if I can help make someones life easier then why not?
