Claudia

“Claudia was my AS and A Level Art History tutor in London as well as a fantastic life mentor. Claudia taught me with complete ease and professionalism under the pressure of condensing two years of school work into four months in the hope to attend Trinity College, Dublin. Not only did I achieve top marks for all my modules, I managed to obtain an MA degree from Trinity which would not have been possible without Claudia’s outstanding tutoring. “

About Me

I am an academic, creative and nurturing teacher, who has worked privately for 14 years, specialising in English, Humanities and the Arts. I have taught English at GCSE, IB Level and A Level and I have experience teaching students one-to-one in Europe, Abu Dhabi and New York. I have also run workshops in London, Boston and New York as well as having taught classes online in China, Taiwan and Japan. I place emphasis on creating safe spaces in which students can exercise their voices and ideas as well as Executive Functioning skills.

I am currently a thesis supervisor to Undergraduate level students studying at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute, several of which have specific mental health issues. I have also Guest Lectured in Shakespeare in the Undergraduate class at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. I have created: Masters syllabi in Political Theory, a History of Art and Architecture syllabi for sixteen to eighteen year olds, as well as an original M.A. program at New York University.

I have worked closely and long-term with students with dyslexia, or mild emotional challenges, such as anxiety. By nurturing confidence in their academic abilities, my student’s achievements in examinations have averaged to 93% pass rate. Student successes include placement at Cambridge University, London, and Trinity College, Dublin; as well as excellent pass rates achieved by students, including 100% at English Literature and 100% in History of Art.

Recent tuition

I have over 200 hours of tuition experience. Please find a snapshot of my experience below.

IB Level English Literature and Language

I worked closely with this student in terms of her understanding and analysis of poetry, plays and contemporary Literature. I was supporting her to plan her essays, structure her work closely, and to put her ideas into grammatically correct English. She was keen to ensure her grades were of the highest level, given that she was applying to study Medicine. She was at the Sevenoaks School when I first met her and gained top grades in her IB examinations.

AS & A Level History of Art

I personally created a History of Art syllabi in 16th and 19th Century History of Art and Architecture, which I taught to a student on a weekly basis. This involved studying case studies together, supporting her to write clear and organised notes, through to exam revision techniques and preparing her for exams. She went on to attend Trinity College Dublin, completing both a BA and MA in History of Art.

A Level Media Studies

This student is in her first year of A-Levels but owing to Coronavirus, she wanted to get a head start by taking online classes with me, three times a week, at the start of summer. These classes are still ongoing. I have taught all of Year One WJEC / Eduquas Media Studies, and now we are beginning on Year 2. I am familiar with all of the specified Media Products: newspaper, advertising, film, television and video games. I am also familiar with how to share these Media Products if a student is studying online through a mixture of screen sharing and asking the student to prep.

MA in Art and Political Theory

Daily support with reading, research, note-taking, writing structure and editing. As well as supporting the student with her time management and planning.

Hobbies and Interests

I was a published author at twenty-six years old; the book went on sale globally with Barnes and Noble and Amazon Global. I have also helped with content for: Art Review, New York Times Magazine and The Telegraph. I have worked as an Editorial Assistant for Art and the Public Sphere Journal, the contributors for which are Arts and Humanities professors across the globe. Most recently I created a brand new musical, ‘Chiara’, for which I wrote the script and score and performed as lead at Pulitzer-winning, The Public Theater, New York. Tickets for the show were subsidised so that the audience could donate to UN Women. I have also advocated for the charity War Child, for several years, which provides education to children in war zones globally.

Parent of English Literature, Art and History of Art students

“Claudia was my AS and A Level Art History tutor in London as well as a fantastic life mentor. Claudia taught me with complete ease and professionalism under the pressure of condensing two years of school work into four months in the hope to attend Trinity College, Dublin. Not only did I achieve top marks for all my modules, I managed to obtain an MA degree from Trinity which would not have been possible without Claudia’s outstanding tutoring. I learnt how to carefully compile case studies that would be easily memorable and also gained valuable learning techniques that I use to this day in the Art Business world of New York City. Claudia was always punctual, presentable and had a natural encouraging spirit which I have seen in very few people. I have stayed in close touch with Claudia in all these years, she is a lady who can adapt to any tricky circumstance, as outlined in the second sentence, and maintain determinism throughout. I have no hesitation putting her forward for any role.”
