Hey, I'm Emily. I have a Master's degree in English Literature and Critical Theory and a BA in English Literature, both from the University of Exeter. I got a distinction in my MA and I am now a PhD student studying at the University of Birmingham. I am motivated, cheerful, and genuinely love my subject. I am available for sessions in English, History, or any essay based subjects or projects, such as EPQ. I also do a lot of sessions on personal statements and university application mentoring.


I achieved 10 A*s and 2 A*s at GCSE and A*A*A at A level. I worked in a London school for over a year teaching all sorts of students from all over the world and at varying achievement levels. I have experience teaching students with learning difficulties, students with English as their second language and students aiming for Oxford and Cambridge.


If you have any questions or want to say hi, send me a WebMail or organise a Meet the Tutor session! Make sure to let me know what it is I can help you with and I'm sure we can team up and calm any worries you may have. I look forward to hearing from you :)

About my sessions

I am very patient and I know how hard English can be to crack sometimes! It can seem overwhelming, what with essays, poems, historical context and then having to make sure your own writing is good enough too! I aim to bring both my genuine love and knowledge of English to my sessions, helping break it down into digestable chunks and make it far more enjoyable and a lot less scary. In both my English and History tutoring I believe I have the capability to develop your writing style and confide...

I am very patient and I know how hard English can be to crack sometimes! It can seem overwhelming, what with essays, poems, historical context and then having to make sure your own writing is good enough too! I aim to bring both my genuine love and knowledge of English to my sessions, helping break it down into digestable chunks and make it far more enjoyable and a lot less scary. In both my English and History tutoring I believe I have the capability to develop your writing style and confidence and teach you how to pick up as many marks in your essay questions as possible. I am familiar with A level and GCSE syllabuses and what the mark schemes require. Most sessions are just under an hour long and I aim for them to be as relaxed and productive as possible. We can get a lot done in that time, especially if we get on and have some fun with the work as well. I aim to bring current and thought provoking content to my sessions. We can look at video clips, samples from twitter and social media, and films as well as your course content and use these to develop analysis and critical thinking skills that go above and beyond what is required and really take your work to the next level. We can tackle UCAS and personal statements as well- university applications can seem daunting but I have a lot of experience in this area.

Emily has been a fantastic support in helping my son finalise his personal statement for his university application. She went above and beyond our expectations and my son was extremely pleased with the result. I could not recommend Emily more highly.
