« We met Emma last summer when she came on holiday with our family. Emma tutored our three children aged 6, 8 and 10 for two weeks. All three kids very much enjoyed working with her and really looked forward to their sessions. Emma is extremely easy to get along with, yet very disciplined with the kids. We can wholeheartedly recommend her." (Mrs T, mother of three Primary children, France & Switzerland) »

Emma - Fulham - History

Methodology

I am a 30 year old female working as a Full Time Private Tutor in London and also run my own business. I have four years of one to one private tutoring experience in London and overseas, accompanying families on trips (Switzerland,France,Hong Kong).

I tutor a variety of subjects at a range of levels including Primary, SATS, 11+, 13+, Common Entrance, IELTS, GCSE, IB, AS, A Level and Degree in addition to adult learners requiring support. My specialist subjects are English, Maths, Spanish, French and the Social Sciences. I can tutor a range of other subjects up to GCSE Level including History, Psychology, Geography and Science. Other courses I regularly run include: Study Skills, Creative Writing, How to Motivate a Student, Descriptive Writing, How to write a CV, How to write a Personal Statement, How to Revise and Interview Tips.

Fully Enhanced DBS Disclosure

- How much do you charge?

My rates range from £48-55 per hour depending on the challenge and location of assignment. Fees are agreed before commencement of tuition and depend upon the level of tuition, distance to travel and necessary preparation. I believe that there is a huge range in quality and value provided by tutors across London. My rates reflect my experience and ensure that students receive the highest possible standard of service.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to tutor in the comfort of your home or else at my home/office in Fulham. I will travel a reasonable distance in Central London, North London, North West London, West London or South West London (approximately 10 miles) depending on time of day. Recent tutee locations have included (but are not limited to) Kensington, South Kensington, Chelsea, Gloucester Road, Knightsbridge, Notting Hill, Bayswater, Hammersmith, Putney, Wandsworth, Battersea, Surrey, Egham, Ascot and Richmond.

I am contactable from 9am till 9pm and am happy to teach 7 days a week throughout the year (including holiday and half term tuition).

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I have experience of teaching a diverse range of ages and levels from 6 year olds to mature adult learners.
This subsequently includes entry level exams through to degree courses or equivalent.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy to offer online tutorials via skype depending on the subject/assignment. I can use a variety of software depending on the student's preference and the subject involved, from Google Hangouts to Zoom to Dropbox. This software allows me to share screens with the student and make live changes simultaneously. Whilst initially sceptical, I have found online tutoring to be most effective, particularly for secondary aged children. It can provide a stand-alone solution or supplement my in-person tutorials. Children benefit from the flexibility of online tutoring (I can accommodate last minute session requests this way) and the academic continuity and security of having me as their own easily accessible tutor. I would be pleased to provide a free 30 minute online tutorial for you to test it out!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Private Tuition ought to be entirely flexible and built around the needs and goals of the student. It subsequently requires a highly individual, bespoke approach. My tutoring style is thus adaptable and tailored to each person. I strive to give each student the best possible advantage in their studies and future life plans.

At the younger end, I aim to create a fun learning environment to bring out the creativity, responsibility and confidence in each child. I believe that confidence and a high self esteem are key to a bright mind and a bright future. At the primary and secondary level, I focus on building up self belief and motivation to allow each student to reach their potential and personal objectives. I enjoy showing young people that learning can be a great adventure and allows us to explore exciting new worlds. I use a variety of methods to make lessons interactive and multi-sensory based on the personality and learning capacity of the child. I break up lessons with word games, flash cards and other visual aids to enhance learning and keep motivation levels high. My approach encourages students to ask 'silly' questions and understand that making mistakes is a key part of the learning process. Regular assessments are carried out to monitor the progress of the student in comparison with their peers and reveal any focus areas.

For more mature students, I also tailor my approach to suit the individual mixing core concepts with more general study skills and encourage each student to find their own way of independent learning. Goals, objectives and desired grades are outlined at the start followed by the creation of a tuition schedule leading towards these achievements. This schedule forms the basis of future tutoring sessions which are broken down into achievable step by step objectives. I encourage students to think outside of the box and enjoy coming up with alternative ways of explaining things which may have been skated over in class/previously. Areas of weakness are identified and worked on throughout the course of tuition with exam technique and essay writing style frequently focussed on.

Whatever your age, level or ability, I would be pleased to hear from you.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have four years tutoring experience, two of which have been acting as a Full Time private tutor in London. I have tutored over 50 students over this time period varying in age, level and duration. I have tutored a range of young people and adult learners in London and also accompanied families overseas whilst tutoring their children in Europe & Asia. I have tutored the following exam levels: SATS, IELTS, 11+ entry exams, 13+ Common Entrance, GCSE, AS/A Level and Degree and worked alongside a published author of Bond Books supporting 11+, 12+, 13+, CE, KS2, SATS and KS3 Assessments. For all my students, I compose my own worksheets for Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3. I am a regular assessor of 10/11 year ability in English and have 100% success rate with 11+ students guiding them towards St Pauls, Godolphin & Latymer,The Harrodian, Francis Holland, Portland Place and More House. I regularly attend educational events such as the London Parents' forum, Times Festival of Education and Good Schools events. I also have a 100% success rate with the IELTS exam in helping students for whom English is their second language to pass and achieve their desired result. I am an enthusiastic, calm and personable individual with a passion for teaching and motivating people to achieve their academic goals whatever their level or ability.

We met Emma last summer when she came on holiday with our family. Emma tutored our three children aged 6, 8 and 10 for two weeks. All three kids very much enjoyed working with her and really looked forward to their sessions. Emma is extremely easy to get along with, yet very disciplined with the kids. We can wholeheartedly recommend her." (Mrs T, mother of three Primary children, France & Switzerland)

“Dear Friends - Many of you have heard me speak about Emma Storey, a British tutor who has been living with us. Some of you who have met her know how bright, gracious and engaging she is. [Our son] has benefitted enormously from Emma's years of experience both as a tutor and manager of a roster of tutors in London. She was expert at shaping his curriculum, ambitious in setting goals but supportive in meeting them; disciplined but also a lot of fun." (Mrs P, mother of 14 year old boy, Hong Kong)

Dominic

“Emma worked with my 10 year old daughter to support her general studies. She was punctual, polite and able to explain concepts in a way that Vera could easily understand. She would go the extra mile to ensure tasks were done correctly and to the highest of standards. She also had a very positive disposition and was a pleasure to have in our home. She helped boost Vera's confidence no end; I would recommend Emma for her dedication, flexibility and knowledge.” (Mr R, father of 10 year old girl)

H
Helene

“Emma, I can't thank you enough for all the help and motivation you have given Camilla. She has come such a long way in her studies with your support and produced a beautiful piece of work today - totally by herself - which she was so proud of. Thank you also for the kind card and 'magic exam silver coins'! We will be sure to keep you posted on the outcome later in Feb (and hopefully celebrate together!)”
(Mrs O, mother of 10 year old girl, London)

“Emma - I just wanted to write to say a huge thank you. You have been faultless throughout this process and I have been so impressed by your efficiency and professionalism over these last months that I am sure our paths will cross again.”
(Mrs R, mother of Primary girl and boy twins, London)

Lydia

Gavin did not once complain about his daily two-hour sessions and I watched her unearth in him both a discipline and freedom with words and written expression (and yes, even an appreciation for grammar) I hadn't expected to see in 3 short months. Her forte is targeting what each student needs. I am always happy to talk to you more about our experience with Emma as we can't recommend her highly enough.”
(Mrs P, mother of 14 year old boy, Hong Kong)

L
Lydia

“We would like to invite Emma back to Hong Kong to spend a month with us in September for residential tutoring. From our experience last summer, we know that Emma's help with SSAT test prep/extension work in reading and writing will be of enormous help as [our son] takes on this process. I can't tell you how happy I am that we will have another round of Emma in our lives.”
(Mrs P, mother of 14 year old boy, Hong Kong)
