I've been tutoring for over four years and specialise in working with undergraduate and graduate arts and humanities students, though also have experience teaching A Levels and GCSEs. Subjects I can support with include History of Art, Film Studies, English Literature, History, Philosophy, General Studies, Fine Art, and English (as a foreign language). I can proof-read, edit, and feedback on dissertations, essays, and other coursework outside of my subject specialisms. Past examples include dissertations in International Relations, Criminology, and Biological Sciences. I tutor online using video calling or by email, or a combination of the two to suit requirements. 

I have a proven track record helping my students achieve the best grades and develop a passion for their studies. My clients enjoy fast improvements which go beyond the tutoring period. A History of Art student of mine went from a low 2:2 to a high First (77) with my tuition. ‘I wouldn't have been able to achieve this mark without your help, I really appreciate it!’ 

In 2020, I tutored two students (ages 15-16), both intermediate English speakers, via an online platform for Cambridge E-Education Chinese Language Programme. For them I created a course that teaches History of Art to improve written and spoken fluency and encouraged creative as well as academic responses to set questions, resulting in fiction and poetry submissions.‘The girls feel that they learn much more in your lessons than they do from their English teachers at school.’
