I have many years experience teaching all key stages at secondary level and working with transition groups from primary schools. As Head of Art & Design for approximately 15 years this has given me a good grounding and understanding of curriculum and examination requirements. Therefore I am able to offer the best advice and guidance for pupils needing help with coursework portfolios. The many years of teaching has also enabled me to build upon a range of skills across a variety of media. From home, I have a purpose build workshop from which I run various workshops for ceramic handbuilding and throwing, also stone sculpting. As a practicing artist I am able to offer tutees, whether secondary school age or adult, a greater understanding of how an artist develops not only their ideas but their marketing value too. Other than the workshops at my home I have also been commissioned by several companies to run workshops with groups of adults or children. Being able to differentiate abilities in these circumstances is an essential skill as is forward planning and preparation.
