I am a freelance art historian and art critic and run a small publishing press. I have a first class Master of Arts Honours degree and PhD in Art History, both from The University of Glasgow. I have been a visual art editor for an arts magazine, and written art criticism for many publications.

Tutoring Experience

I have over ten years experience working as a private tutor and as a part-time lecturer (including tutoring at The University of Glasgow and Edinburgh College of Art), as well as giving guest lectures at major institutions (including The Glasgow School of Art and Inverleith House in Edinburgh). During the last academic year (2017-2018) I taught students who were studying: Scottish art and identity, Modernism in Vienna, and the Renaissance in Venice, as well as supporting students who wrote dissertations (at undergraduate and postgraduate level) on Land Art, Video Art, Post-Colonialism, preservation techniques, and Feminist approaches to art history.

Tutoring Approach

I think it is important that the tutoring experience should be moulded to each individual; s/he should feel equipped and totally supported. I have a deep knowledge of all aspects of art history, and help students form a strong theoretical foundation to their understanding of the subject. Once the fundamental ideas are grasped it is a joy to help students perfect their writing and critical skills, sharpen their intellects and become first class students.

The students I worked with in the last academic year graduated with grades that were two to three positions higher than those they received from before we met, and two students were offered full scholarships to further their education.
