About me

"Our doubts are traitors, And make us lose the good we oft might win, By fearing to attempt." — Lucio in Measure for Measure. Our doubts can work against us and prevent us from achieving greatness. My role as a tutor, a position of authority and integrity, is to ensure my students do not feel this way.

"Our doubts are traitors, And make us lose the good we oft might win, By fearing to attempt." — Lucio in Measure for Measure. Our doubts can work against us and prevent us from achieving greatness. My role as a tutor, a position of authority and integrity, is to ensure my students do not feel this way. We face uncertain challenges and cannot determine what life will bring us, but we can control our attitude towards them. This was the mindset I had when I took my A-levels, I got 100% for my English literature coursework and exam.


I stand out as a tutor because I understand the uniqueness of each individual; students learn differently and I structure my lesson plan accordingly. If you want a tutor who is genuinely passionate about your journey, then I am her. The evolvement of our culture, with multiple distractions and social media, has heightened the urgency to provide platforms of educational opportunity.

After corresponding with a student and confirming which topics they would like assistance with, I can organise the lesson. In order to plan a lesson, I ask for two days notice unless it is an exception. 


The lessons do not involve me talking at my student for 60 minutes. Studies have clearly shown it is unlikely for an individual to learn simply by being lectured at for an extensive amount of time. Engagement with the material, however, is an effective method. I create a comfortable environment, absent from pressure, asking questions and providing extra material for my student to read after the lesson. The material often contains a summary, in an easy format, of the content we covered. The subsequent lesson will involve a quick recap, then a small test to see if the understanding is there. If not, then I know which areas need to be addressed and we can look at them together.

Emily is a great tutor. The lesson which she prepared according to my needs was challenging but interesting and fun at the same time. During the session, she made notes on what I learned which she sent to me directly afterward. I am looking forward to the next tutorial. Thank you
