I combine an excellent academic background in History of Art with six years of tutoring experience. In September 2021 I will begin my PhD in History of Art at UCL in September, this research will be funded by UCL's prestigious Graduate Research Scholarship. Prior to this, I graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art with a Distinction in MA History of Art (2020) and hold a First-Class BA in History of Art from the University of Cambridge (2018). At both Cambridge and the Courtauld I was amongst the highest-ranked students in my cohort.
I have extensive experience tutoring students for History of Art, History and Fine Art. My style of tutoring is centred on developing students love of their subject alongside boosting their academic performance. As such, my lessons are well structured, informative and engaging.
I am committed to tutoring throughout my PhD (up to 2024) and have a valid, Enhanced DBS.
History of Art is my principal subject and I also teach History, Fine Art and essay writing to humanities students more broadly.
I have specialised in twentieth-century art (my PhD will be on post-war American art) but I can tutor across all periods and themes within History of Art and History.
A focus of my tutoring has been helping university students develop their academic writing and assisting with coursework and dissertations. I have tutored History of Art to students on BA and MA courses at the following universities: Oxford, Cambridge, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol, Exeter, Edinburgh, St Andrews, The Courtauld Institute of Art and Birmingham.
I am familiar with all major exam boards for History of Art, History and Fine Art A-Levels and Pre-U including Edexcel, AQA and OCR. I have created specialist resources for A-Level and Pre U History of Art.
Additionally, I have a superb track record of tutoring students for entry to Oxford and Cambridge - 12 of my former students have secured places. I am able to work with students on all aspects of their UCAS applications.
"Cora is, very simply, a superb tutor. Knowledgeable, organised and helpful she has a real gift for bringing out the best in her pupils. If your enthusiasm for Art History was waning she'll help you rediscover it in double quick time. Highly recommended." - Nick B
"Corinne is helping me through the final year of my History of Art degree , and I can honestly say she's been a real help. Its been lovely to meet her! She's enthusiastic, energetic and a very supportive guide through this turbulent time. Corinne would be a massive help to whoever she tutors. Would highly recommend!" - Antoinette O
"Cora has been a fantastic help to Tabitha. Her knowledge of History of Art, enthusiasm and ability to build Tabitha's confidence has been great" - Eleanor M
"Cora has been amazing at helping Rosie with all aspects of this subject: revision technique, essay planning, extended reading and context. Highly recommended." - Arabella M
"I had a retake on a university essay but could not understand what was wrong with the content and style of it. In just few lessons with the tuition of Cora, I was able to improve the content, style, and structure of my essay which resulted in me passing with a High 2:1." - Toni M
"Cora is extremly helpful! Our lesson's are well structured and she is great at explaining concepts and work's of art that I had struggled with before! She's very encouraging and enthusiastic. Studying with her makes me love History of Art and feel so much more confident in my ability!" - Ysabel C
"Cora really helped me with my essays at degree level which resulted in me improving my essay structure as well as the language used. The sessions were well structured also. Would definitely recommend her tutoring to anyone!" - Laurine H
My style of tutoring centres around structured and engaging lessons that build students love of their subject alongside boosting their grades. My lessons all involve open-ended questions and, like supervisions at Cambridge, develop through dialogue. Enthusiasm underpins my approach to tutoring. Additionally, careful attention to mark schemes course requirements are a focus of my tutoring. I enjoy working with my students to create new models for learning which help them understand concepts, approaches to essays or exam technique more clearly.
