Experience Art teacher for Montessori, Primary and Special needs children (adults also welcome). I use the Portfolio teaching methodology in to embed education through art. This method is highly effective since the topics are drawn from individual tastes, experiences and their hobbies or even sports.
I have taught for 2 years in a private educational institution providing educational and therapeutic art lessons for Montessori, Primary and Special needs children. Currently, I give private lessons to my friends and family.
I have witnessed a major shift in focus, concentration and most of all self-assurance and confidence.
It's all about being patient, giving hope, building trust and make the whole process comfortable and lot fun.
Completed Masters in Business at Flinders in 2017 / BSc (Hons) Computing Multimedia in 2012 and have been exposed to TV, Radio, Print, and Web throughout my career. Currently involved in the digital sphere I build e-commerce sites with Wordpress and Woocommerce. As an Artist, I enjoy drawing, sculpting, carving, making music and painting.
Career highlight: Converting to become a teacher in 2012 for Montessori, Primary and Special needs led me on a spiritual journey understanding the world in full spectrum.
