Art History

Our art history and architecture tutors are doctoral candidates and PhDs. Our team also includes a small number of college graduates with exceptional command of and passion for the material. But our art history tutors aren’t just experts--they’re first and foremost passionate educators who love to introduce students to every branch of their discipline: African, Medieval, Byzantine, Chinese, Renaissance, Japanese, Baroque and Rococo, Indian, Modern/Contemporary, Islamic, Ancient, and Latin American.

We work with students of all ages to deepen their understanding of Art History. We range from supporting high school students to prepare for the Art History AP, to working with college students alongside an Art History course, to working with Master’s students on their research.

In all tutorials, we take a structured and carefully personalized approach to ensure that our students receive the most effective and comprehensive tutoring available.
