About the lesson
**THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN BEING TAUGHT BY ME - I AM NOW FULLY BOOKED BETWEEN TEACHING AND MY OWN CREATIVE PRACTICE SO CANNOT TAKE ON ANY NEW STUDENTS**
View examples of my own creative practice here (concealed information)
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Art and Design for all ages and levels up to Postgraduate level. (I particularly specialise in drawing, illustration and sequential imagery.) I am able to teach a range of Art & Design skills including Interview Coaching and Portfolio Advice for Further and Higher Education. Each lesson is tailored to the individual.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I trained at The Royal College of Art, London in MA Communication Art & Design. I have a First Class BA (hons) degree in Graphic Design (Illustration) and a National Diploma in Fine Art. I have also studied Creative Writing at The Imperial College in London and The Arvon Foundation.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £32.50 per hour and payments for block bookings can be spread into weekly or monthly payments by BACS, cash or cheque. This fee includes lesson planning time which is tailored to each student. If you are coming to me, this fee also includes the use of basic professional materials from my studio, a work schedule, lesson plan and homework if appropriate. Even if I teach more than one student at a time, each student is treated as an individual, not as a class, so the lessons and optional homework reflect this.
I am always happy to visit my students at home if need be, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
It is also possible to book me for whole days (especially if we were to go on an educational trip drawing at the zoo or a museum for example). There is a special rate for this.
For blocks of lessons (for example a whole term) you will receive a lesson plan, an invoice and the option to pay for the term in full or to break the cost into weekly or monthly payments. I can take payment by cash, cheque, BACs or Paypal (small additional fee if paying by credit card) and you will receive a reciept and confirmation of your booking.
If you are a school/college and would like to hire me to teach a class or course - please get in touch as there is a different rate for this.
- Where do you teach?
I usually teach from my home and studio but am also happy to visit my students at home. Most students prefer to visit me so that we have all equipment and resources we need to hand. I am located in Poole, Dorset (BH15) . Free parking is available outside my property and I am within ten minutes walking distance of major bus routes including M1 & M2. The nearest train station is Poole which is a 10 minute walk away or taxis are available outside the station.
I can also visit you, but this may incur additional fees for travel and time so please get in touch to discuss your location.
- When are you available?
I am currently very busy but have limited space for new students on Saturday mornings and Tuesday afternoons/evenings.
If this isn't convenient I can add you to my waiting list for other days and times.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages, abilities and levels up to postgraduate. You do not need to be pursuing an academic qualification to have lessons. The majority of my current students have lessons for college or university entrance, portfolio build up, leisure or as extra lessons on top of their school/college work. Each lesson is tailored to your requirements.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Due to other commitments relating to my creative practice and teaching I am no longer able to offer being your sole tutor for a subject but can happily assist with supporting students who are already enrolled with a school, university or college.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can now offer tuition via Skype. This means that I can see you and you can see me, and you can show me your work via web cam or screen share. Obviously the quality of lesson is not as straightforward as teaching in person, but some of my students have chosen this option for interview coaching or if my input on technique and demonstration is to be minimal and/or they live very far away. Some of my students have also used this option to stay in touch with me and continue lessons whilst they are away on holiday or at boarding school.
This works very well for interview coaching and consultation.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
My aim as your tutor is to discover what you want to achieve and see how we can work together to reach your goals. I am a naturally friendly tutor, with lots of energy and enthusiasm for the creative subjects I teach. I like to get to know my students and devise a lesson plan that will inspire and engage them.
There is also the option for me to arrange trips. Recent educational trips I have taken my students on include galleries, zoos, museums, bookshops and inspiring landscapes. As a practicing artist myself, I am actively involved in the industry and can give you professional advice and direction as well as teaching your usual lessons.
For my younger students, I find that my experience in leading courses and events and writing and illustrating for children's books for this age group makes me a popular tutor. I have oodles of imagination and can keep them occupied for hours with my varied lesson plans for small attention spans!
I look forward to working with you.

A mega thanks for taking my son on as one of your students and for coaching, guiding and supporting him all the way to his Foundation interview, I shall never hesitate to recommend you as a tutor and I would also very much like to keep in touch.
I would like to thank you for your excellent input and guidance throughout.
Thank you for all your help and your push! I got into my first choice college!

She loves the lessons - thank you!
He has matured as a person, as well as an artist in the eight months you have been teaching him so far, we are so pleased
Just a quick message to say thank you very much for an excellent session on Friday. I thought it went really well and our deputy head was very impressed with your teaching. The children were buzzing on the way back and are going to teach their new skills to the rest of the class this week.
