Art History & Archaeology Lessons taught by a PhD (online or in Madrid)

Would you like to learn more about History, or do you have a particular interest in Ancient History, Art History or any other aspect of the Ancient World? If the answer is yes, I am here to teach you and take you on a trip to past historical periods, learning the keys of each culture, and enjoying learning about ancient empires, wars, society and the diversity of people that shaped the world in which we live today. I am Rubén, a recent PhD in Archaeology by the University of Leicester with extensive experience teaching in academia for the last 6 years. I have also taught Spanish to foreign students at from primary and secondary levels and higher education. I have taught American and UK students over the last seven years, whilst pursuing my studies in Spain and in the United Kingdom. I was recently awarded my PhD, through which I developed methodological aspects of teaching different types of public from different backgrounds. My experience to communicate to different types of audiences have been enhanced through my work as a contributing writer for the National Geographic History Magazine.

In these classes you will be able to learn, depending on your choices...:

- To recognise the main artworks of the Art world History.
- To wander through the art of the Ancient World.
- To identify the key aspects of historical periods.
- To identify the main artworks and understand the sociocultural contexts of production.
- To carry out iconographical analysis of specific artworks.
- The Archaeology of Greece and Rome.

The variety of topics and subjects we can cover will vary depending on the interest of the student. From general Art History lessons to very specific ones, such as the Art of the Roman World and the Provinces, or different tours through Pompeii, Herculaneum and other legendary cities of the Ancient World such as Rome, Athens, and many more.

If you are interested in taking Art History & Archaeology lessons for fun or for your studies, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss further options.

Thank you,

Rubén M.

About Me

I am a Spanish native teacher, with extensive experience teaching Spanish to foreign students at from primary and secondary levels and higher education. I have taught American and UK students over the last seven years, whilst pursuing my studies in Spain and in the United Kingdom. I was recently awarded my PhD, through which I learnt methodological aspects of teaching different types of public from different backgrounds.

My classes are dynamic and centred on the student's progress, carrying out different interactive activities, role-playing and exercises that will make the student increase his/her confidence with the use of Spanish, whilst learning grammar and vocabulary. I usually give the students the opportunity to send me writings that I correct at home, and I recommend listening activities that will help the student to improve his/her understanding of the language during lessons. My complete proficiency of the English language makes it easier for the student to ask specific questions or to understand how some expressions work in Spanish, having my English explanation at hand (in order to make them fully understand the most difficult aspect of Spanish).

If you want to improve your Spanish in a quick and efficient manner, do not hesitate to get in touch and discuss options with me.

Depending on what interests you and your level, we will discover together step by step how to draw by observing and imagining, how to create and compose images, how to tell a story with drawings, and why not how to create a poster, a fresco. We will also discover how to manage color, mix materials to give volume, depth ... everything is possible! In this course the student is as active or active as I am because it is up to you to find out who you are and what your own style is.

International Baccalaureate History (Standard Level, Higher Level, Grade 3 - DP2, IB)
I completed the IB DP with a consistent 7/ high 6 in Higher Level History, and this has always been one of my favorite subjects. I am very good at this subject and have somewhat of a passion for it. I have a very good grasp of what is expected from the IB students as pertains to this subject, and I know the ins and outs of the criteria and the weird and wonderful little ways in which the IB expects the students to perform. I am able to help with any course work, homework, assignments, or assessments. As pertains to the DP students, I also did my EE on a History topic so I can assist there if need be. I am also a tutor in English and as comprehensive writing and legibility is a large part of what is expected from IB History students, I can offer particular insight into how to best write and get arguments across.

Learn Polish for everyday use, university, tourism with FUN and passion
I am a native speaker of Polish. I attended a Polish primary and secondary school and recently obtained a C2 exam. During our lessons, I'll help you develop your skills (oral/written, and not only). I'll also try to help you improve your pronunciation and understand those complex noun cases and verbs. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching Polish, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs, mainly individually. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I can prepare you for state certificates such as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE).
