For any humanity tutoring session, I would start by assessing the overall level of my student and narrow down the areas that we should focus on in order to help the student achieve great results. I always contact my students prior to the lesson to know if they have something specific they want to focus on, and if not, I prepare a lesson plan that will best fits their needs.
Having recently graduated with a first from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, I am now completing my masters in Art History at Oxford University. Born in a French/English family, I am bi-lingual and particularly enjoy tutoring languages which I have been doing for the past 5 years. I also loves transmitting my passion for art history through my tutoring. Because art history is so multi-disciplinary, I also offer tutoring in History and Philosophy, as those are two disciplines I constantly engage with and study alongside my masters. I have a considerable amount of experience giving public and private tours to visitors and schools in various museums and cultural institutions (The Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, Two Temple Place in London) which has made me realise how much I enjoy teaching art history.

Perfect! Marjotte was an excellent tutor! I was so grateful for her exceptional knowledge in essay structure. With her help, I was able to effectively shape the format of my university essay. She was very communicative prior to the lesson and I am excited to work with her again. She was a uper kind as well. Thank you Marjotte! ️
Perfect! I decided to take some art history lessons with Marjotte after having a few French lessons with her. I wanted to learn more about French nineteenth century art in order to help my current researh. It was really useful to use the linguistic skills I learnt with her by applying them to such a fascinating period in art history. I would recommend Marjotte 100%. She is a passionate and enthusiastic teacher, who prepares her lesson plans thoroughly so you make the most out of your session. The material she presents is varied and always fascinating. Eager to continue both my French and art history lessons with her!
Laura is such a great student. She is dedicated and passionate - always eager to learn more. I have had the pleasure of teaching her both French and art history. She has progressed in both disciplines. I would recommend her to any tutors. You will have a great time!
Perfect! Marjotte is a truly brilliant art history tutor who is intelligent and supportive! I recommend her highly! To research on the artist movements in Jane Austen's time for my MA thesis, Marjotte greatly helps me with researching on the 18th century artist movements such as Neoclassicalism and Romanticism, introducing lots of beautiful, intriguing paintings, gardens, costumes, and architecture to me. Her lessons are always fun, supportive, helpful and, of course, wonderful! Anyway, Marjotte is a fantastic teacher and I cannot thank her enough!!!
