Sharon greatly helped me improve my analysis skills. We spent most of our lessons discussing the book we had chosen to read. Not only did I enjoy the many discussions we had over analyzing this book, but I also learned how to analyze better and read more carefully for any and all future books. She was able to help me develop these skills in such a fun and memorable way that most times, it felt more like a conversation than just a lesson. Sharon is extremely nice, helpful, and easy to talk to. She is also flexible, understanding, and patient, especially since my schedule was not always easy to work with. I recommend Sharon to anyone who wants to develop their writing and/or analysis skills in a fun, yet still very effective, way.

I specialize in the Early Modern period (1400-1600) in both Northern and Southern Europe. I am proficient with art theory and criticism, and utterly passionate about visual culture of all kinds.
People often tell me, when they find out I am an art historian, that they do not know much about art--as far as I am concerned, everyone knows about ar... ... More
Courtney was a wonderful tutor, so much so that my son felt he had enough information that he could successfully pass the math portion of his GED Exam. Without Courtneys assistance I don't think he would have the confidence to complete the rest of the exam. Thank you Courtney.
