About Me

I combine an excellent academic background in History of Art with six years of tutoring experience. I am in the first year of my PhD in History of Art at UCL where my research is supported UCL's top scholarship. Prior to this, I graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art with a Distinction in MA History of Art (2020) and hold a First-Class BA in History of Art from the University of Cambridge (2018). At both Cambridge and the Courtauld I was amongst the highest-ranked students in my cohort.

I have extensive experience tutoring students for History of Art, History and Fine Art. My style of tutoring is centred on developing students love of their subject alongside boosting their academic performance. As such, my lessons are well structured, informative and engaging.

I am committed to tutoring throughout my PhD (up to 2024) and have a valid, Enhanced DBS.

Tutor Experience

I began tutoring in 2015 and have since worked with a large number of students. My style of tutoring centres around structured and engaging lessons that build students love of their subject alongside boosting their grades. My lessons all involve open-ended questions and, like supervisions at Cambridge, develop through dialogue.

Topic Expertise

History of Art is my principal subject and I also teach History, Fine Art and essay writing to humanities students more broadly.

I have specialised in twentieth-century art (my PhD is on post-war American art) but I can tutor across all periods and themes within History of Art

A focus of my tutoring has been helping university students develop their academic writing and assisting with coursework and dissertations. I have tutored History of Art to students on BA and MA courses at the following universities: Oxford, Cambridge, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol, Exeter, Edinburgh, St Andrews, Trinity College Dublin, The Courtauld Institute of Art and Birmingham.

I am familiar with all major exam boards for History of Art, History and Fine Art A-Levels and Pre-U including Edexcel, AQA and OCR. I have created specialist resources for A-Level and Pre U history of Art.

Additionally, I have a superb track record of tutoring students for entry to Oxford and Cambridge - 12 of my former students have secured places. I am able to work with students on all aspects of their UCAS applications.

Client Reviews

Cora is an amazing tutor! She is so very helpful! She has provided me with lots of comments regarding revision techniques that I will implement in my revision preparation. I found her advice regarding folding over papers with dates and writing out key facts on lined paper and then testing myself by writing them on the other side to be especially useful. I also found her distinction between exam essays and non-exam essays to be very useful; I will try to hand-hold my reader more in exam essays and I will think about writing more clearly and using more obvious examples sometimes instead of wasting too much time writing about niche ideas that may not work in exam conditions! I will try to do more essay plans to combine content learning and exam preparation. My sessions with Cora are always super useful, and she offers fantastic advice and help. I would recommend her to anyone preparing for their exams as she is very, very knowledgeable when it comes to exam techniques! She is honestly such a fantastic tutor that you will not regret having lessons with her, even if you are not revising for history of art! My sessions with her have been invaluable!

- History of Art

Cora is really amazing! She has offered me superb advice regarding revision techniques and she has helped me with revision planning + execution across all my four a-levels! The skills she taught me are transferrable and I hope that they will make me a better student! I will follow her advice of looking at assessment objectives, mark schemes and examiner reports, as well as writing essay plans before checking notes and then double-checking what I remember and don't remember! She knows so much about how to prepare for exams in a smart and efficient way, and I really hope that I will manage to get the best grades possible and make her proud!
