I am a fully qualified teacher and I have a first class degree in Classics and Modern Languages from Durham University. I completed my teacher training (PGCE) at Cambridge University where my school placements included teaching Italian, Latin and Classical Civilisation up to A-Level, and German and Ancient Greek to GCSE. Alongside my current study for a PhD in Italian Literature, I offer private tuition for students from KS3 through to undergraduate level. This can either be extra support for students for subjects studied at school to maximise their potential and boost grades, or I am able to offer curriculum teaching for students wishing to take certain subjects outside of school.

I believe every student should have the opportunity to perform to their full potential, and my tuition helps students progress towards their personalised goals, whether it is going up a grade in exams, preparing to study a subject at university, or studying an additional subject for interest.

***Also offering daytime sessions and home schooling support during school closures***

My sessions are structured around the individual needs of students, with my teaching experience and knowledge of the syllabuses integral in preparing students for exams. Online sessions are interactive, encouraging the student to make maximum progress by involving them directly in the material and practicing how to approach questions so that they are equipped tackle all exam scenarios.

Sessions are built upon areas which students enjoy to ensure maximum learning and engagement with the subject material. Where possible, I incorporate additional 'for interest' material related to the subject to broaden students' wider knowledge and inspire an enthusiasm for the subject more widely. Through a combination of content and skills, my sessions ensure that students will gain the skills they need to take their own learning forward outside of tutoring sessions and become more confident and comfortable in the classroom.

Super fantastic teacher, who seems to know everything! Highly recommended, hard working, very approachable, and very kind. We have Emma with us every week for a subject not taught at school and are delighted to have found her. Don’t hesitate to book an interview! Very happy parent and student!
