Biographical Info

Hello, my name is Jennifer Murray and it is my pleasure to introduce you to my business, Awaken Potential Tutoring.
I am a trained Primary School Teacher, AQE & GL Tutor, and mum of one teenager (and one Furbaby) based in Carrickfergus.  I have also completed a Diploma in Mindfulness for Children.
At Awaken Potential Tutoring I offer 1 to 1 and group sessions for children from 4 to 12 years old.  I specialise in English, Maths, Reading, AQE and GL Preparation covering Carrickfergus, Larne, whitehead, Newtownabbey and surrounding areas.
I believe that every child has the right to discover their true potential, both academically and in terms of their confidence and well being.
My passion is to bring together traditional learning with mindfulness techniques so your child can awaken the best version of themselves.

Biographical Info

I decided to set up The Art and Design Factory after l hosted a successful art birthday party for my son last year.  The feedback from both parents and children was so positive and inspiring that l decided to offer this to other parents.
As a qualified teacher with 18 years’ experience I want to share my passion and enthusiasm for Art and Design to all ages and abilities. Through participating in art workshops, the individual gets the opportunity to relax, unwind and enter the “art zone” which is similar to a meditation.  Modern society constantly bombards us with digital technology and gadgets and sometimes it is beneficial for us to get creative with our hands and minds.
Over the summer months of July and August the Art and Design Factory are running Summer Art camps across Belfast including McCracken Memorial on the Malone Road and Bredagh Hall on the Ravenhill Road.  The Art and Design Factory camps are a great way for your children to spend a week of their summer holiday working on cool art projects.  Each child will finish the camp with a framed landscape painting, various other drawings, paintings and several 3d Papier- Mache artefacts by using different types of materials and media.

The Art and Design Factory offers a wide variety of Art and Design classes and workshops.  Our birthday parties have proved very popular.  I have hosted birthday parties in the children’s home as well as other venues such as The Ulster Museum, Church Halls and Sports Clubs.  The child can choose the theme in advance such as movie characters, video game characters to their favourite animals.  Where possible we aim to always ensure each child draws and paints something of their choosing. The Art and Design Factory has a “no mess, no stress” policy for home parties. All surfaces are protected and children only use water based paints. Each child produces a finished piece of artwork which is framed at the party and is taken home as an alternative to party bags.

Bespoke adult parties are also offered.  We can set up in the comfort of your home and offer a bespoke Art class for your family or group of friends.
This is a relaxing, uplifting experience which builds on self-belief and boosts confidence.
We find that wine usually helps to unleash creativity and get the ideas flowing.
