Subjects I teach
History of Art up to A-Level
Fine Art up to A-Level (particularly familiar with the AQA exam board)
I currently study at the Courtauld Institute of Art at Somerset House. This is the internationally renowned centre of excellence for the study of Art History, with a highly competitive admissions process to select just 50 students per year. I would love to be able to pass on this world-class standard of teaching to your child.
I have previously worked at the prestigious Mall Galleries, Watford Museum and have helped stage the East Wing Biennial: Artificial Realities exhibition at Somerset House. Most recently I completed an internship at Christie’s and these placements demonstrate my organisational skills, strong communication skills and professionalism.
I have taught numerous students since joining Tavistock Tutors, during which my biggest accomplishment was intensively tutoring a student due to take her Art History A-Level (AS and A2) exam in three months. This student was at an E/D grade when I took her on and, with my guidance and her hard work, was able to fulfil her potential and achieve an A* grade, gaining 100% in two of her modules.
As demonstrated by the Art Society I founded and ran during my time in sixth form (2014-2015), I am an enthusiastic speaker and persuasive leader. Every week I would teach Art History to 20 of my peers, aged 16-18. I would also speak about hot news in the art world since I enjoy wider reading on the subject online and in newspapers and books. I have also taught English to children aged 9-11 as part of a volunteering programme in Morocco (2014).
I love to further my knowledge of art in many disciplines and in addition to my studies I have completed a Law of Art course certified by Sotheby’s, which I passed with merit. I have also been appointed the J-Soc president for my university.
In my spare time I enjoy painting and drawing and one of my artworks has won an international competition. With my Fine Art tuition, I would be able to teach traditional painting techniques, from oil painting to drawing.
I gained 7 A* grades and 3 A grades at GCSE with full UMS points in the exams for Fine Art, Design & Technology and Geography. I also achieved 3 A* grades at A-Level in Geography, Fine Art and History of Art, and a B in my English at AS Level. I was awarded full UMS points in my History of Art A-Level and in one of my Geography exams with 95% and a full UMS score in Fine Art. This highlights my perfectionism, ability to work hard and my commitment to achieving goals. I am equally dedicated to achieving your child’s goals and working out strategies of how we can work together to accomplish them.
My Approach to Private Tuition
No child is the same and for each child I work with I will adapt my style accordingly. By building a close relationship we will pinpoint where their weaknesses are and find the best way to overcome them. This might range from revision techniques and tips, essay writing, mark schemes or developing your child’s personal interest in the subject further. I will ensure I format the lesson in a way that best suits your child’s individual learning style, which might take the form of visuals, verbal tasks or writing. I believe my sheer enthusiasm for the subject is what sets me apart from other art history tutors. With my wider reading on current art events, and specialist knowledge of selected periods, I can give your child the flair they need to achieve top marks in their exam.
