School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Textile Arts)
Villanova University (Master's)
Dear Students and Parents, my name is Elizabeth Ives, and I have degrees in both art (my BFA from the School at the Art Institute of Chicago) and pre-modern history (MA from Villanova University). I have a passion for both, with a special interest fashion history. I have found that history is often seen as a boring subject made up of names and dates, people you have a limited connection to, and things that seem very far away. Indeed some course work does make history seem that way. During my seven years teaching at Philadelphia University, it was my job to make my subject interesting; to help students find a connection with the past. If I could make that connection, then my students grades improved and they began to see, not only history in a new light, but their connection to it.
It is my job to help you find that connection to history and to art. My tutoring methods are generally one on one, defined by the needs of the individual student and their course work. This can include help with research, writing, PowerPoint presentation, public speaking and comprehension of history and art. In some cases, I can supply additional materials to help students make the personal connection that a text book cannot give. I look forward to talking with you about your individual needs.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I received by BFA in textile arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1998. The Art Institute has a continuing commitment to art history with a 30 credit minimum for undergraduate graduation. In addition I received a MA in pre-modern history from Villanova University in 2010. I have taught at the college level for seven years (2005-2013) at Philadelphia University. My personal focus is on the history of clothing and textiles which combines both art history and traditional historic studies.
I received a master's in pre-modern history from Villanova University in 2010. I was inducted into Phi Alpha Theta and Phi Kappa Phi during my time at Villanova. I was an adjunct professor at Philadelphia University from 2005 to 2013 with a focus on Historic Costumes and Textiles. This course not only covered what was worn but also the social, political, and economic history of clothing and textiles.
In addition to my degrees, I have taught at the college level for seven years (2005-2013) at Philadelphia University. During my time as a lecturer, I wrote and delivered many lectures (2 to 4 a week). I have extensive knowledge of PowerPoint presentations (used in every lecture I wrote).
