Tutor Biography

I have been tutoring for the past 9 years at GTI and have 35 years hairdressing experience. I find it very rewarding to share my knowledge and skills with others who want to improve their skill or learn a new one. Introduction to barbering is structured to give one the knowledge, help and encouragement that is needed when one is embarking on something new or not very familiar. The course is very much hands on from the start and practice is encouraged outside of class. If one had previously embarked on some form of barbering or hairdressing but did not pursue it,this is a great opportunity to come back and test the water.
