I have been tutoring art history with various companies for over a year, and I work as a Teaching Assistant in the History of Art department at UCL. I am qualified to teach the subject at all levels: from A-level to postgraduate.
I have enjoyed helping students with their essays on subjects that have been as diverse as painting in revolutionary France, feminism and fashion in 1960s Britain, and the metropolis within modernist poetry. I have researched many areas in the subject to high levels: from medieval to contemporary art.
My approach to teaching is flexible, as I build my classes around the needs of students to maximise their value. I am well qualified to provide informed feedback on essays and dissertations, and can comment on art historical content and offer guidance on essay writing skills. Likewise, I enjoy sharing my passions for art and teaching in my online video lessons, in which I discuss assignments and give short presentations to clarify topics that students are struggling with.
Whilst helping students to boost their grades, my classes are focused on making learning about culture how it should be -- both fascinating and exciting.

History of Art job with Elizabeth:
Over 2 hrs/week - I’m currently doing History of Art Pre-U and urgently need to improve art historical essay writing skills and how to answer questions from different papers. And definitely need more knowledge for the historical and and thematic topics since i feel like i don’t know enough to deliver a good answer featuring a number of relevant artworks.
The four historical topics I’m doing now are 1. Renaissance in Venice 2. Man the Measure of all things: High Renaissance 3. Rebellious and unconscious (Dada, constructivism through to abstract expressionism) 4. Art is about life 1970-present.
The city chosen for the thematic paper is Venice, including architectural ecclecticism, city spaces, city now, etc.
Analytical studies are paintings, sculpture, and architecture.
I’m currently predicted a D2/3 but i don’t feel confident about this exam.
Edward's last review in A Level History of Art from Elizabeth: Went off topic a lot but it’s art history so unavoidable!
I have tutored junior and senior school students over many years in subjects including English, History, History of Art, and Mathematics. During my Ph.D. program, I taught History of Art classes to university students, giving lectures, leading weekly discussion sections, engaging students in visual analysis and critical reading exercises, and teaching writing seminars. I also served as the Undergraduate Writing & Research Advisor for the History of Art department, providing technical writing assistance and refining students' research and writing skills. I mentored university students and assisted them with graduate school applications and internship cover letters.
Additionally, I have mentored multiple students in their applications to American universities, advising them on how to write a successful application essay and how to study for the SAT exams. I am therefore able to provide this sort of assistance as well.

STELLA's last completed A Level History of Art job with Alice: Intensive - I’m preparing for this summer Alevel exams, I’m struggling with content on architecture, visual analysis and essay writings.
I always build a completely unique scheme of work for each individual client and I pride myself on a creative and colourful teaching style which employs tasks and assignments to engage my students with complex ideas in a clear and accessible fashion. I always keep my lessons interactive and use visual stimuli such as images and videos to support my tutee's learning process...
I have achieved excellent results with numerous clients receiving the esteemed 8 // 9 Grade in their English exams.
In the 6 years since I began tutoring my work has mostly centred on helping A-Level English students with both coursework and exam prep. I have worked with some of London's leading agencies including Bonas Macfarlane and Craig De Silva and have undertaken in depth work-experience at Grafton Primary School, London. I have also tutored students at some of the UK's leading independent schools including Harrow and Westminster.
I have an Upper Second-Class Honours in History from Oxford University. A*A*A*A at A Level in History, German, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation. The experience that I have gained from observing lessons and teaching supervised classes in schools has taught me that interactive teaching is the gateway to academic achievement. I will use a variety of methods such as mind maps, acronyms, quizzes and diagrams to help you reach the next academic level. I want to help you get to grips with the subject material, while giving you the confidence to use the right exam and essay techniques to get the grades you deserve. Everyone learns differently so I will tailor my teaching to your learning style and exam board.
I have a postgraduate degree in Literature and Theology from Cambridge University - where I studied under the supervision of Dr Rowan Williams - as well as a first class degree in the same from Edinburgh. I have since been teaching:
- full-time senior school English and Drama from year 9 to A level, and Primary School Latin;
- adult education Literature, Philosophy and Creative Writing;
- homeschooling GCSE English Literature & Language and Religious Studies
- homeschooling primary/lower school English, Maths, Philosophy and Art
- undergraduate/postgraduate support in English and/or Theology
My specialism is modernist poetry and theology (particularly the poet David Jones) though I work as an all-rounder and study to build a strong grounding across the Humanities and the Arts.

I have been a professional tutor since 2006.
Across all of the different subjects I teach, I always notice the same thing: the main difficulty that learners encounter is getting overwhelmed by what they're trying to learn. It could be that there seems to be simply too much material to cover; it could be that the concepts seem too difficult; it could be that the whole thing causes anxiety for some completely different reason which is apparently unrelated to the 'academic' side of things.
I help remove anxiety, regardless of what form it might take, in whatever way seems like it will help each individual most. Before long, it becomes possible to see the task in hand with different eyes – indeed, more importantly, at this point most of my students come to see their own abilities entirely differently. They may have come to me with a fixed idea of what they are 'bad' at, but I help them to realise that they have skills they hardly suspected.
My main tutoring work is in preparing students for the American standardized exams; I have experience with the SAT, SAT-2 (Subject Tests), ACT, GRE, GMAT, ISEE and SSAT. I have helped over 200 students with their exams; of these, more than one-third made successful applications to Ivy League schools or major business schools.
I specialise in Verbal for all tests and have a strong record of helping students accomplish top scores through my own system of strategies, fine-tuned for each individual for optimal results. Where applicable, I ensure all students have a rock-solid foundation and a whole tool kit of strategies designed specifically for each element of the test.
I have helped with the all of the aforementioned exams in a variety of different teaching scenarios. As well as working face to face, I have also taught extensively online via Skype. Numerous students have been apprentices with Premier League Youth Academies, including those at Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, who have required particularly attentive tutoring to help them make up for gaps in their knowledge due to their heavy sporting schedules. I have taught people with learning difficulties and I also have plenty of experience in working with younger students, from 8 and up, on the ISEE and SSAT.
I have been working as a tutor for 8 years, helping students of a wide range of ages and abilities. This has included successfully preparing students for 11+ and 13 + Exams in Maths, English, VR and NVR for top UK day schools. I have helped older students at GCSE and IGCSE–level in English, German, History, and Design and Technology, Film Studies, Media Studies and Art, and worked with A-Level students of Art and Art History. I have reviewed personal statements, portfolios and applications for top US Universities, and provided essay writing assistance to first-year university students in Art History and Cinema and Media Studies.
My experience working with younger children includes volunteer work for the Homework Club at the Rugby Portobello Trust, an afterschool club for primary school children, and as a live-in au-pair and English tutor for a five and seven-year-old during my gap year.
