Subjects I teach
Any art historical subject at both graduate and undergraduate level.
At university, I taught a variety of subjects to both graduates and undergraduates including courses on 19th and 20th art history, the complexities of the current contemporary art market as well as more broad introductions to art from the 15th century to the present day.
As a private tutor, I have worked with a range of students with different interests such as conflict photojournalism, representation of pregnancy in the Italian Renaissance and Irish landscape painting in the 18th century. I have a strong broad theoretical and art historical knowledge and I can help students build convincing, well-written and skillfully structured essays.
In addition to my teaching experience, I have also published my work in Moving Image Review & Art Journal (MIRAJ) as well as the graduate journal Object. I have given talks and lectures around the world. I also work for a London based art consultancy.

My Approach to Private Tuition
I am passionate about transmitting to other students some of the excitement that drove me to study art history. I will listen carefully to your needs and goals and tailor my approach accordingly. I will always be receptive to feedback! I try to be available to and understanding of students facing tight deadlines and increasingly demanding academic standards.
I have a crazy poodle!
