I am an experienced History of Art teacher and lecturer. I have provided one-to-one tuition in this subject at both undergraduate and postgraduate level for the last 5 years.

I have also taught and lectured at a range of universities including the History of Art Department, UCL, the Courtauld Institute of Art and the Department of Art, University of Reading (7 years experience in total). In addition I have previously taught adult education classes in the History of Art and on contemporary art at the City Lit and given public lectures at the National Portrait Gallery and the Wallace Collection. I have also given lectures on History of Art to A level students as part of a widening participation project designed to encourage access to this subject at university level.

I have an extensive knowledge of Art History (especially modern and contemporary) and can adapt this appropriately to the level of the student.

Help on how to research and gather information effectively
Constructive criticism on coursework drafts and presentations
Help improving the clarity and coherence of your written expression
Proof reading service for finished essays, dissertations or theses
Advice on correct use of the English language.
