Subjects I teach
Architecture Design up to Undergraduate
Dissertation Architecture Specialised
Fine Art Drawing and Painting Technique – All Levels
Portfolio Preparation Art & Design subjects – GCSE & A-Level
Design CAD & Adobe Suite programs up to Undergraduate
I have tutored various GCSE, A-Level and mature students with project development and painting and drawing technique, which I have been developing experience in throughout my artistic studies. I also have taught a class of students at Chelsea Fine Art. My architecture degree also requires a huge amount of precise drawing from life. I have experience in still life and life drawing, and working with materials ranging from charcoal to egg tempera (Please see my attached portfolio).
I have additionally tutored Architecture students with firstly learning CAD and Adobe design software, but further tutoring with design studio work, both conceptually and with design. I have tutored students with their architecture dissertations, with a view of developing their structural framework and content.

My Approach to Private Tuition
I believe in a supportive and enthusiastic approach to tutoring, with the core of my teaching looking not only to simply pass an exam, but for the student to gain wider knowledge and skills. I look to give my tutees a skill set that can benefit them throughout their life, with well rounded tutoring that not only gets results at public or university examinations, but further sets the pupil up with necessary design or written skills, as I was taught at Harrow School. I believe that understanding a subject is in fact more important than mearly learning a correct answer.
My approach to Architecture tutoring is to help give substance to projects via an extensive knowledge of architectural theory, and then to tutor the realisation of these concepts, via drawing skills both by hand and on the computer.
I take a similar approach to art tutoring, with an emphasis on learning techniques to draw and see accurately, which is then backed up with portfolio strategy and project concepts.
Learning a skill can be incredible rewarding and fun, and I look forward to helping you achieve your creative dreams!
