Art History graduate student in London teaching ways to succeed in the subject by tailoring to the way you think

Methodology

Having recently received my BA in Art and Architectural History from Binghamton University over in the United States, I am now pursuing my MA in the History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art here in London. What made me fall in love with this subject had everything to do with the way it was taught to me.

For a subject that can become boring if you let it, the best way to truly understand its concepts is by having the ability to see each idea from every angle and approach the subject with energy and a sense of humor. This is true for any level of study. Allow me to help you see the subject from perspectives you may not have noticed before and inspire you to potentially take your ideas and specific way of thinking further!

Background

Throughout my experience as a tutor and advisor, my methodology has remained the same. From tutoring 11 year olds in a failing New York City school at risk of not passing the 6th grade to advising college freshman struggling to with create an academic and professional plan, I approach each student differently so as to utilize the specific way they think. That methodology has led to each one of my 6th grade students moving on to the next grade with flying colors as well as a number of my college students going into their second year feeling prepared and organized. Now, I am able to apply this approach with the training I have received in Art History and help you in the most effective way possible.
