About Pauline

Member of the Society of Education & Training. Enhanced DBS

I have been teaching art, craft and textiles to learners aged sixteen-plus for over twenty years. The accredited courses I have taught include NOCN levels one and two Creative Craft Skills and Design Style well as City and Guilds Preparing Working Designs. When I am not teaching, I work on community arts projects in venues such as care homes, primary and secondary schools; the projects being mostly textile-based. Apart from this I have recently begun working more regularly in schools, occasionally leading KS3 and KS4 Art classes.
As a textile artist, I have worked with the Embroiderers’ Guild, giving lectures on my own work to branches of the EG around the country and leading day schools and summer schools at their request. I exhibit my own work whenever I can and have done so for many years, most recently in New York and Milan. I teach because I enjoy all aspects of my work, sharing knowledge and skills and seeing learners progress gives me great satisfaction.
I have taught Basic Skills Literacy for over ten years. For most of that time I have tutored adults working with small groups or on a one-to-one basis, but recently I have led KS3 and KS4 English Literacy classes in local schools. I cover all aspects of the subject; reading, comprehension, phonics, spelling and writing, grammar and punctuation.
It is important to take a flexible approach to teaching; I always begin by initially assessing learners in order to in order to establish their learning levels and needs before agreeing a starting point. Long and short term goals are also discussed before beginning work and progress may be recorded on an individual learning plan (ILP) which is reviewed on a regular basis.
I consider myself to be a very patient tutor; rather than say the word "no" if work requires correction, I will offer constructive tips and say, "try again."
