I will structure lessons according to a students' area of interest and desired number of sessions. I will provide PowerPoint slides of pre-prepared images and lists of key texts. My aim is to develop a student's understanding through comparative exercises and would like them to gain an awareness of theoretical and philosophical issues. If the student is keen on learning historical facts and figures, it's nice to test this out in a pop quiz.
I have a first degree in Art History from UCL where I'm now studying the same subject at MA level. I have previously taken modules in the History of Political Thought, and European History and would also feel comfortable teaching philosophy. I have a sound theoretical and historical knowledge of pre modern to contemporary Western and South American art.
