Let Me Help You Achieve Your Best

What is an online tutorial

Much like mentoring, an online tutorial is an opportunity for you to discuss a project with someone who has experience in design. Discuss issues, problems, roadblocks, or hurdles, and get support and guidance from someone who’s been there.

It’s designed to help you get unstuck. We aim to get you back on a path of production and deliverables calmly and creatively.

Your Tutor/Mentor

Over the past 15 years, I have worked as a British chartered Architect, Academic Director at a leading design school in India and Senior Lecturer at a top UK Arts University, Academic Representative with the British Council, and External Examiner at several design schools.

I have mentored hundreds of students and graduates both in-person and online on design projects, dissertations, work placements, CVs, portfolios, personal branding, and much more. I continue to teach online and run my own design studio.

Who It’s For

Interior Design & Architecture students looking to get feedback and support in their design projects, and graduates looking to discuss their next steps.

Creative Entrepreneurs looking for support and guidance in freelancing or building their own business.

How It Works

Click below to purchase an online tutorial, we will contact you to schedule a convenient time - usually within the next 5 working days of purchasing.

First, we figure out what the issue is, gain clarity, and prioritize issues. Working together, we brainstorm solutions and design a realistic timeline for you to work to. Then we map out the steps needed to meet the required developments, directions, and deadlines.

Calls typically last 30-45 minutes but don’t worry, you can always book another tutorial to follow up.

Please note: Mentoring works best when you approach it with an open mind and are fully prepared for the call. If this means having work (sketchbooks, designs, models, etc) on hand, please do so. We advise you to plan out what you would like to ask ahead of the call - have 3 main points and 1 top priority.

Book Now

Currently booking for 2024. Mentoring call is usually conducted within the week of purchasing because we understand you just need to get unstuck.

If you have any questions, please contact us
