About me

Hi, I'm Emily, a Masters student studying English Literature in Edinburgh. I am offering tutorials in both English Literature and English Language up to A Level. English has been my favourite subject since I was about six years old, it is always the subject that I have studied hardest for and been the most dedicated to, right through to university.

Hi, I'm Emily, a Masters student studying English Literature in Edinburgh. I am offering tutorials in both English Literature and English Language up to A Level. English has been my favourite subject since I was about six years old, it is always the subject that I have studied hardest for and been the most dedicated to, right through to university. I love my subject as it is richly varied and always complex, there is something for everyone in the world of literature and it can offer you so many new views and ideas which help with real life situations. Both reading and writing are incredibly important to me, at secondary school I wrote and edited the student run school magazine, WHAT, which won Best Magazine at the Shine Media Awards 2015. In my school exams I received full marks in all papers for English Literature (A*), and for English Language an A* at GCSE level and an A at A Level. 

Throughout GCSEs and A-Levels I struggled with major exam stress, which although hindered me in some respects, also helped me to come up with new ways of coping with the exam period and revising successfully - I have tried and tested many different revision methods and so am able to recommend multiple activities!

Although there is no guarantee for your received grades, as a successful exam relies on independent work as well as tutoring, each of my English Literature A Level pupils for the last two years have gone up by at least two grades in their final exams.

About my sessions

I aim to provide a friendly and informal tutoring service, I find that tutorials always work best when the student is comfortable and relaxed. The sessions themselves will be completely tailored to what you need to work on, I am happy to work on anything from essay writing to correcting grammar to helping with analytical methods. If you are studying a particular text that you need help with then with some notice I can easily make sure I have read it and will therefore be fully equipped to hel...

I aim to provide a friendly and informal tutoring service, I find that tutorials always work best when the student is comfortable and relaxed. The sessions themselves will be completely tailored to what you need to work on, I am happy to work on anything from essay writing to correcting grammar to helping with analytical methods. If you are studying a particular text that you need help with then with some notice I can easily make sure I have read it and will therefore be fully equipped to help you study it. We can go at whatever pace you are comfortable with, either doing one session on each specific text/revision technique, or taking multiple tutorials to completely master it - although I am here to encourage and push you to your fullest potential, it is most important that we work at a pace you are comfortable with, so that you actually take in the material. Depending on your chosen revision method we can work in that way, or if you have not yet mastered your revision technique (it took me multiple years to come up with my ideal revision strategy), we can work on finding your ideal!

A levels coming up this week so kindly Emily did a 2hour session with me! Had the most pleasant experience with Emily as my tutor, before I looked into getting a tutor I was struggling hugely with English at college and ever since meeting emily my grades started to increase hugely and I became more motivated in the run up to my exams to sort it out. Emily has been so patient and thorough with all of my work and I am extremely grateful to have had such a lovely experience with someone of a similar age to me as I feel this made the sessions enjoyable and more interesting! Once again I am so pleased and cannot thank Emily enough for helping me in the way she has done, would recommend any day of the week for sure!
