About me

Hi! My names Emily and I am currently a second year Psychology student at the University of Exeter. I have a passion for the sciences, psychology and english so I would really love to help you if you are struggling in these areas, or just want that extra boost to get the grade you deserve! I have alot of previous tutoring experience, and last year I helped a group of students in chemistry to raise their class average from a C to an A. From this experience, and having done all the exams myself not too long ago, I really feel I have learned a lot about the most effective ways to learn particular topics, and am happy and excited to share these tips with you. I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

Each session is entirely based on what you want to work on and/or are struggling with. I will try to always use exam questions as a way of reinforcing any content we go over as this is a really great way to see yourself progressing. Using exam question also means we can work on exam technique, which is a really key skill in gaining some extra easy marks in your exam! When discussing a particular topic I will try and explain it in as many ways as possible, using pictures and analogies, as well as just words so that you can see what works best for you in terms of learning that particular subject matter. A lot can be achieved in a 55 minute session and I am confident you will quickly see yourself progressing in confidence and knowledge. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'. If you just let me know your exam board and if there is something specific you're struggling with or if it is more a general subject that would be great.

With the help of Emily I managed to get an 8 and a 9 in my English exams! So thankful. She was very good at making me more comfortable exploring my ideas thoroughly, which enhanced my writing greatly. - Hiruthika

She knows the specifications inside out, and most importantly knows how to teach them by making them understandable!

Emily is an excellent tutor! She mainly taught me English Language and Literature, and in a short period (less than a year) I improved from a grade 3 to a grade 7 and English isn’t even my mother tongue, as I was raised in a Spanish speaking country. Not only did she help me to get 7s in my English GCSEs, but also she helped me with Biology, Chemistry and Physics (subjects where I got 9s in the actual GCSE exams). I couldn’t be happier with my results and Emily definitely played a very important role because her tutoring was outstanding and she always kept me motivated. I would highly recommend booking a session with her!

Emily has been an absolute rock for my Son over the last few weeks. She has worked with him on GCSE Biology and Chemistry and has been patient, informative, encouraging, professional and organised. He struggled with focus - she gave it to him. He had large gaps in his knowledge - she filled them. He lacked confidence - she built it. I would have no hesitation in recommending Emily and her approach. Thanks Emily.

Questions Emily has answered

What is the difference between passive and active immunity?

Active immunity involves your bodies direct response to an unknown pathogen. This response is the production of antibodies specific to the antigen of a particular pathogen. This type of immunity is not immediate as it takes time to have create enough of the correct antibodies to fight the pathogen. However, the response lasts for a long period of time and in some cases, where antibodies remain in the body as memory cells, immunity to the specific pathogen may be life long. Conversely, passive immunity is an immune response which involves antibodies obtained from outside the body. An example of this is the antibodies a mother passes to her infant through her breastmilk. Immunity to the pathogens which these antibodies are specific to is therefore immediate, as no time is needed to create them. However, this immunity is not long term and may only last a few days. Passive and active immunity both have natural and artificial forms. So, for example the natural form of passive immunity is antibodies transferred in breast milk as mentioned, however an artificial form of passive immunity is the use of antidotes such as that for rabies where specific antibodies are injected into an infected individual. Additionally, the natural form of active immunity is the normal process of an individual contracting an infection and their immune system responding, conversely the artificial form of active immunity is immunization, where an individual is deliberately exposed to a weakened form of a particular pathogen in order to elicit an immune response.Active immunity involves your bodies direct response to an unknown pathogen.
