About Me

I combine an outstanding academic background in History of Art with over five years of tutoring experience. My deep enthusiasm for History of Art and passion for communicating the subject unite my academic work and private tutoring practice.

I am studying for a PhD in History of Art at UCL and was a Fall 2023 Visiting Scholar at Yale University. 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). I was amongst the highest-ranked students in my cohort at both Cambridge and the Courtauld.

I am committed to tutoring throughout my PhD (up to 2025) and have a valid, Enhanced DBS.

Tutor Experience

I began tutoring in 2018 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 and confidence alongside boosting their grades. As such, my lessons are well-structured, informative and engaging. My lessons all involve open-ended questions and, like supervisions at Cambridge, develop through dialogue.

Below is a short list of some of the tutoring work I have done and I can provide a substantial tutoring CV:

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 working with students taking History of Art A-Level and Pre-U. I have developed specialist resources for this qualification.

I also have extensive tutoring experience working with unversity students to 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.

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.

"Cora is, very simply, a superb tutor. Knowledgeable, organised and helpful she has a real gift for bringing out the best in her pupils. If your enthusiasm for Art History was waning she'll help you rediscover it in double quick time. Highly recommended." - Nick B
"Cora is amazing! She’s been tutoring me for over a year now and my work has improved massively. The sessions are very tailored and she makes sure to give useful ideas and feedback which allow the student to reach their full potential. My writing has come on leaps and bounds thanks to her and my grades are now consistently in the top band of marks. She also offers help with cover letters and CVs for art related careers which is really helpful too. She’s great to work with and I could not recommend her enough to a prospective student!" - Rory M

"Cora tutored my daughter in A level art history. She has been struggling at school with unstructured lessons and a lack of feedback and her sessions with Cora have been transformative. Cora understood the issues immediately, gave very specific advice and feedback and got my daughter 100% on track in just a few sessions. Most importantly, Cora really boosted her confidence and was a huge pleasure to work with. I recommend her extremely highly." - Lisa T

We are extremely fortunate to have met Cora. Our daughter is in the final year of her History of Art (A Level) and she needed a bit of guidance and help. Cora made time over the Christmas holidays to have multiple sessions. They went through essay planning and writing and it left our daughter feeling much more confident heading into the home stretch. Cora is brilliant and we could not recommend her more highly." - Andrew W
