I am extremely passionate about Literature and seek to enthuse my tutees by engaging them with the texts through relating them to their own experiences and reference points so that they feel confident in accessing challenging content. We practise with exemplar exam papers and focus on key skills. I also teach different strategies for revising texts, comparison skills and language analysis.
I have been privately tutoring for the last 6 years and have taught in an outstanding school, been head of the English department there for 10 years and trained 15 newly qualified teachers.
I have tutored pupils for the 11+ who received offers from ALL their chosen schools,
2 GCSE students who were awarded level 9 and level 8 for their English Literature and English Language; an A level student who was awarded an A* and is now at Oxford and another who was awarded an A and is reading PPE at Warwick university. I have also spent time tutoring reluctant boys at both KS3 and 4 and have seen a change in their progress through my ability to tease out their skills by instilling confidence in their own abilities.
£50/hour for A Level
All other classes £45/hour
Perfect! Emma took time to establish just what my son required in way of support and provided an excellent tailored program of lessons. Very helpful in boosting confidence in English and encouraging and developing his own ideas.
Perfect! Supportive and helped to build up my daughter's confidence as well as knowledge.
Perfect! Emma has been a fantastic support to both my sons who are in Key Stage 3. She has instilled confidence in my younger son and he has started to produce some excellent work at school. With my older son, who has different needs, Emma has ensured that she is stretching him and has started preparing him for his GCSEs. Emma is friendly, informative and the children enjoy their sessions with her. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Perfect! I have two sons who have been tutored by Emma on a weekly basis, they both thoroughly enjoy their sessions with Emma both boys are reading more and their teachers have noticed a marked improvement in their schoolwork.
I cannot recommend Emma enough, she has made English much more interesting for both of them and they look forward to their session with her.
