Hello. I am a qualified secondary school teacher of Art and Design (11-18 PGCE) with over 20 years of experience, with a wide variety of strengths to share with students. I have delivered a range of levels and qualifications from Key Stage 3, Entry Level, Level 1 and 2, through to GCSE, A-level, Level 3 and Extended Diploma, in Art and Design.
I am approachable and patient, and make a conscious effort to share my enthusiasm with students. I believe my lessons are positive and relevant to the curriculum whilst holding my students’ interest and enthusiasm. I always strive to get the best out of every student regardless of their artistic ability, and believe that every student has equal opportunity to express themselves. Praise and the raising of self esteem all play a major part in my teaching philosophy, as well as student-centred learning, as I believe that this leads to creative and innovative responses.
