I have been tutoring art history with various companies for over six months, and 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 I am well qualified to provide informed feedback on essays and dissertations, and can comment on art historical content and offer guidance on essay writing skills.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 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 five 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 taught both Art History and Fine Art for 7 years and I can guide students to develop their art portfolios for university entry, for GCSE and A Level exams as well degree level. I can also help with art history essays, academic and creative writing, personal statements, interview skills, university entrance, presentation/public speaking skills and dissertation writing.

STELLA's last completed A Level History of Art job with amanda: Occasional - Oxbridge interview practice
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.
Having taught English full-time at senior school, I have a good knowledge of mainstream schooling and curricula, as well as experience in the classroom. I have taught IGCSE, A-Level and to all ages from 9-18, as well as Beginners’ Latin.
I tutored undergraduates in academic writing, structuring arguments and analysis at Edinburgh University.
I am currently an MPhil graduate and PhD candidate at Cambridge, researching the poetry of David Jones.
I am a teacher and tutor of:
Key Stage 3-5;
Vocational Levels One to Four;
International Baccalaureate (IB);
I am experienced in assessing students in relation to learners’ attributes and delivering alternative or innovative educational provision and/or facilitating innovation in others. I promote the use of philosophical thinking tools, argument deconstruction and identifying rhetorical 'tricks'. I have found asking students to use story pitching approaches, such as loglines, and writing/pitching their ideal abstracts for essays helps sharpen their focus on what is essential and extraneous to their dissertations. I designed programmes of study that emphasise the application of critical thinking and a growth mind-set (Dweck, 2006 & 2012). I promote self-regulated learning in my teaching (see Zimmerman & Schunk, 2007), which incorporates online/blended learning methods.
