« Deadly! I just started weekly Vectorworks tutorials with Abdi and so far so good! I've learnt more so far in 2 hrs than in the 4/5 hrs Vectorworks online tutorials. He's a really friendly person and clearly knows what he's doing. I like that he keeps things as simple and clear as possible - not overly convoluted. 100% would recommend! »

My name is Abdi and i have been teaching interior architecture and general design lessons for several of years. I have graduated from University of Westminster (Interior Architecture - 1st Class Honours) in 2013. I am comfortable teaching College and University students as well as adults looking to enter the interior design profession.

Experience

My passed teaching experiences come from developing design portfolios with university students and teaching interns how to deliver projects from initial concept discussion to final outcome. Design software programmes that i make us of on daily basis are Vectorworks, Photoshop and Indesign. If you require assistant with Interiors or Architecture portfolio do not hesitate to get in touch!


Interview Questions:

1) When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?

I have developed an interest in Architecture and Interiors during my 1styear of college studying BTEC Art and Design Nation Diploma Course. My interest in tutoring has began during my final year of university as ended of helping few of my class mates when I have finished my project early.


2) Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).

The subject I teach is interior design, architecture and urban planning. The topics I enjoy most is the creative problem solving of each brief. The topic I enjoy less is the technical/structural aspect of project.


3) Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?

All of my creative teachers from school, college and university has always encouraged me to push the envelope on creativity. Regardless of which subject I may be exploring, from fine art to fashion to architecture.


4) What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?

One of the main qualities of a good tutor is patience and sympathy. It’s vital to understand that we all consume information differently. Most students that require private tutor either have difficulty with traditional learning environment or the may be going through a personal struggle.


5) Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.

Most valuable point that I can state for all students studying design is that there is no short cut!! All final designs have to show where it all began. These are vital steps which will apply to all design briefs:

Concept/Experiments
Development
Design Rev A, B etc.
Final Design


6) What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?

One of the main challenges I face in my subject is teaching a student which has no previous experience or knowledge of creativity. Turning an academic student to a creative prodigy is challenge I am constantly overcoming slowly.


7) Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?

My passion is design and creativity in general. I love designing projects just as much as I love teaching design students.


8) What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?

What makes me a Superprof is that I have developed a wonderful teaching system which accommodated all students from different levels. My ability of tailoring a unique teaching style for each student and seeing the results is what makes me a Superprof. My wonderful reviews from students highlight the major impact my teaching style.
