My Passion And How I Inspire
It is essential to get an understanding of the needs and concerns of the student and what they would like to achieve, but also to get a grasp of how best they have learnt in the past. One to one learning allows the student to develop at a pace which best suits them and allows them to achieve their goals.
Design being a creative subject, opens many avenues of ways to learn, although I feel the best approach of learning is to encourage students to explore their creativity to enable them to develop their skills.
Linking learning to there own designs enables relative association and make retaining knowledge easier.
I met the Queen whilst she was opening the first naturally heated/ cooled building called the Queens Building. One of her corgis sat on my foot whilst I was being introduced!
