About the tutor
I have a background in education having taught in and around Bristol before working for Learn Devon. I enjoy helping learners express their creativity using different methods & stimuli. It is a very satisfying and worthwhile path to be on. I believe that working in groups or individually in a positive environment is a healthy and uplifting process. Having an M.A. Ed., & completed a Foundation in Art Therapy, I find this gives me the tools to help others. In my spare time I like to cycle and am interested in theology. I also support Scouts and other community groups.
