PLEASE CONTACT ME DIRECTLY FOR AVAILABLE SLOTS AS THEY MAY VARY FROM THOSE SHOWN.

I am available for in person or online sessions.


Hello, I’m Susie and I am an art graduate, currently working in London both as an artist and teacher/tutor. Since graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in 2010 I have been working as a professional artist; alongside this I am an experienced teacher. I am currently studying a masters in sculpture at the Royal College of Art.

I aim to be a very motivational tutor, trying to be as positive as possible and I try to minimise stress levels by being calm and approachable.

I tailor each lesson to my student's individual needs and have experience working with a wide range of age groups. I am flexible with the times and locations I can work.

I have at PTLLS qualification for teaching in the lifelong learning sector and I also have a CELTA.

I tutor a range of subjects- please see below for more information.

English as a foreign language-
I am a CELTA qualified teacher.
I have been teaching since 2010 in language teaching and private tutoring. I have taught in schools and one on one and can teach IELTS, PET, CAE, CPE and general English.


Art and Design/Art History-
I also have a number of years of experience teaching Art and Art History. I currently teach one day a week on the Foundation Art course at St.Andrews College in Cambridge. This involves teaching art and history of art.

I have tutored students in art at pre university and university level. I have helped with essays and with the preparation of portfolios and interview practice. My interview practice experience includes Oxbridge preparation.

I have also done sessions guest lecturing at the University of Cambridge in the history of art department and the Judge Business School and I have lectured at Anglia Ruskin University. I work on weekends throughout the year as an artist educator at the Fitzwilliam Museum and other university museums on behalf of Cambridge University. I have assisted with workshops at the Royal British Society of Sculptors and led workshops with Access Arts.

I have taught young people and adults of all ages from varied backgrounds and diverse cultures.


Deisgn Technology/ Product Design
I have also tutored Design and Technology GCSE and A level to a number of students since 2010. I studied A-level DT myself and AS Level textiles so I have a good idea of what is involved for both the coursework and the exam.


Organisational studies
I have tutored organisational studies where I have helped students to revise and organise their workload more effectively. This involves helping with timtables, mindmaps, organisation of revision materials and creating other revision tools.


11+
I am trained to and have tutored students in 7+ and 11+. In these subjects I have focused on verbal and non verbal reasoning, English and maths. I have also led sessions specifically on creative writing and comprehension.


Film Studies and Media Studies
I have tutored film and media studies, helping with the coursework and essay practice for exams.


Please do get in touch if you have any questions.

Homeschool tuition

Susie has been my homeschool tutor now since the end of September.
Susie has made it easier as expected to study three A-Levels in one year instead of two, and I honestly cannot thank her enough for helping me throughout my homeschool journey. As well as Susie being passionate for Photography, she is also invested in the students wellbeing. Other than teaching me photography A-Level, she tutors me in Film Studies and Media Studies too. I would recommend Susie as a tutor to anyone, as she is very easy to get along with and focuses on the needs of the student to develop their skills in specific areas of the subjects studying.
For Photography, Susie has helped me to develop my knowledge for the subject, as I was a beginner when I started. I now have a wider understanding of how to develop my work in photography and technical terms to use.
Subject:
Photography
Outcome:
I have been able to study three A-Levels in one academic year instead of two.
