About me: teaching
Since 2006, I have been a gallery educator at the National Gallery, London, delivering in-gallery lessons for primary and secondary school children from across the UK and Europe. Prior to that, I was a schools educator at the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, New York.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Teaching
I teach art history survey courses for the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and the University of Washington in London, and was a keynote speaker and visiting tutor at Maine College of Art in 2015. I also lecture on postgraduate art history courses for Christie’s Education and Sotheby’s Institute of Art and teach undergraduates from Camberwell College of Art at Dulwich Picture Gallery.
Mentoring and Training Teachers
I am a mentor on the National Gallery’s Initial Teacher Education scheme, training postgraduate and undergraduate teaching students in the use of works of art in teaching a variety of National Curriculum subjects. I was also a mentor for Manifesta in 2013, training student guides at the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg, and a mentor for Art Night London in 2016.
I am a former teacher of art history A-level and Pre-U at Westminster School, London, and consulted on syllabus content for the modern and contemporary art components of the Pre-U in Art History.
