Tell me about some of your current students.
I have various students of all ages. Starting at a young girl at 4 years old - teaching her basic arts and crafts right through to a 65 years old studying for an MA. All are as challenging as each other in their own ways. Some students are dyslexic/dispraxic. I also have experiance teaching students with severe learning difficulties.
I am able to bring out the best side of my students and nurture their talents individually and in a group. Each student has progressed in their chosen art/textile direction. I love teaching and it shows by my students results.
I am also currently teaching at 'Eton' on a part time basis - Textiles GCSE level.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Hi! I am Emma and I teach art, arts and crafts, fashion, fashion history, fashion styling and textiles. I have a interactive and fun approach to tutoring. I have many contacts within the industry and also can take you out on day trips for inspiration and market research. I firmly believe that there is a technique to teach each and every student. I like to have an introduction so we can get to know each other first and find out your talents.
Why wait and dream to be that next top designer/artist when you can start to be that person today!
I look forward to talking and teaching you.
