Art History Stanford PhD student offering Art History, University Applications, History, English Literature with two years' experience

Methodology

I improve my students' grades by tailoring tutorials closely to the mark schemes of their exams, building up the taught material in line with the exam board's specification and guidelines. This ensures that my students know what they need to do for their exams and coursework and enable them to achieve their best possible grades.

For university applications, I take them through precisely the requirements needed and explain the explicit and implicit demands of the application. I go over students' personal statements and submitted work with a rigorous eye for quality so that they can get into the very best universities.

Background

I am an Art History PhD student at Stanford University offering lessons in Art History, History, English Literature, and UK and US university applications. I've been giving lessons for 2 years and taught both school and college students. Having gained my undergaduate and masters degree from Oxford and now studying for a PhD in the US, I have extensive experience of both college systems and thus can guide your university applications at all degree levels and tailor them to the expectations of each institution in different countries. My students have come from across the globe and I always meet them at their level and then push them further to achieve their best results.

EXPERIENCE:
Intern at Castle Blatna, Czech Republic, 2018
∙As an Erasmus-funded intern, I developed alternative revenue streams for Castle Blatna, a privately-owned castle in the Czech Republic.

∙ I instigated and oversaw the purchase of advertising in National Geographic Traveler, to raise public awareness of Castle Blatna.
∙ I initiated a variety of projects, including crowdfunding, collaborating with Central European universities, and working with film location agencies, in order to build links between Castle Blatna and different sectors which could lead to future revenue generation.

Curatorial Intern at Campion Hall, University of Oxford, 2016-18
∙ I catalogued and publicised their art collection; and introduced the collection to visitors.
∙ I independently created the first complete digital art catalogue of Campion Hall’s collection, an immensely valuable resource for scholarly access, loans, insurance, and future acquisitions.
∙ I published articles on their website presenting research on the collection.
∙ I curated exhibitions for the Hall, including researching and writing the captions for the display, and organising and implementing its installation.
∙ I oversaw the loaning of a relic to the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and collaborated in re-hanging the Hall’s art collection.

Intern in Commercial Banking, Lloyds Banking Group, 2017
∙ I interned for Britain's largest retail bank in their derivative trading team and strategic debt financing team, facilitating private equity financing of SMEs.
∙ I aided in completing trades, researching and producing reports on companies as part of the bank’s due diligence, and creating and delivering presentations on derivative trading.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR:
∙ I have been published by America and Commonweal and been deputy editor of both the Oxford Review of Books and The Isis.
∙ I was the 2017 President of the Oxford Forum, organising speaker and student panels on diverse topics from the state of the arts in modern Britain, to the future of British universities.
∙ I invited speakers including Sir Ivor Crew, Master of University College, and Christopher Le Brun, President of the Royal Academy of Arts.
