Modern & Contemporary Art History OR Graphic Design

I have a First in French and Art History Combined Honours from UCL and a PhD from the Courtauld Institute of Art. I have taught university students studying Art History and Visual Culture as well as students of applied disciplines in what are sometimes called 'Contextual Studies' in the UK and USA since 1997.

I can help with research skills, expression of visual thinking in language, with the construction and defence of historical arguments or arguments pertaining to value, critical and analytical writing and with the articulation of all ideas in appropriate, academic language.

In addition to Modern and Contemporary visual practices, I am interested in theory and the philosophies of aesthetics, so if you need help in any of these areas, please ask.

Having worked with both art history students and those studying for applied degrees in Fine Art and various kinds of design, I am aware that the way you may approach these materials can be very different.

Although I remain passionate about art, language, art-writing and teaching, I now mostly work as a freelance graphic designer (I made the leap across the great divide and make images, often combined with words, often my own).

I live abord the Gentleman Jackson, a traditional canal boat, on a residential mooring at Packet Boat Marina in Yiewsley, Uxbridge.

Transport links from me to you or vice versa: West Drayton Suburban Rail (Oxford Line from Paddington) or Uxbridge Tube (Piccadilly and Metropolitan Lines). 222 Bus to Packet Boat Marina.

Reference for Dr. Simeon Hunter

To Whom it May Concern:

I offer my unreserved recommendation of Dr. Simeon Hunter as a tutor in the Tutorfair program. Dr. Hunter and I were colleagues at Loyola University New Orleans for twelve years, which gave me ample opportunity to observe his very considerable teaching skills.
Dr. Hunter has a gift for clarifying difficult concepts, for seeing the 'bones' of a subject
and conveying that to students. He is now a graphic designer, in addition to holding a PhD in art history and he would be well able to help students in those disciplines, as well as in English and French, in which he is sufficiently fluent to have written his PhD in that language, as well as in English. While teaching art history at Loyola, Dr. Hunter spent an unusual amount of time essentially tutoring students in his classes in English as well as in art history, as he had perceived a pressing need for that assistance.
Both students and the administration of Tutorfair will find Simeon Hunter to be a reasonable and charming person, unusual in his ability to enjoy all kinds of people. His ready sense of humor and natural compassion will make his interactions with prospective students pleasant for all concerned.
If I may be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me. My email address is:

Art History, Visual Culture, Writing and Critical Skills

Simeon is extremely knowledgeable and has an inspirational and charismatic delivery style when presenting and delivering lectures or class teaching, tailoring his delivery appropriately to the student/s he is working with. This has included from first year undergraduates studying applied disciplines to art history graduates with diverse interests. This is clearly underpinned with a deep and thorough knowledge of his specialist subject areas which include Modern and Contemporary western practices as well as critical theory and art writing as a practice. His skills base is broad and his interest in Design and the application of a range of software packages to developing his own practice based work adds to what he has to offer.
He was exceedingly popular with students and they responded markedly under his assured tutelage.

Art

I would highly recommend Simeon to you
