approximately 10 year olds upwards (depending upon previous
experience) and is an equivalent learning level to a GCSE.

media, with strong leanings towards the use of recycled materials;
photography, the written word and performance art play an important
role in her own art work.

Nottingham, London and Wales.
Sam has a 9 year old son and 7 year old twin girls, a current clear
DBS (previously known as CRB) check, and a responsible, friendly, calm
but enthusiastic manner of teaching.
