Information about Emily

I have worked as a Teaching Fellow in English Literature at the University of Surrey, specialising in Contemporary Literature, Theories and American Literature. I have also worked at the University of Southampton teaching Academic Skills to Pre-sessional International students about to embark on postgraduate study.

I have a PhD in English Literature and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I also have a Masters with Distinction in English Literature and a BA with First Class Honours in the same subject, from the University of Surrey.

I am extremely passionate about Literature and believe that through my enthusiasm and technical understanding of the subject, I am able to provide struggling students with the skills they need to improve their grades.

I find that the best approach to teaching a child is to adapt learning methods to suit their needs, as each will require help in different areas. I will assess their ability in the first session to check what they already know and what needs to be worked on.

As a young graduate, I feel I am able to teach in a friendly and informal manner that enables students to feel at ease and able to voice their opinions and concerns regarding their studies. Unlike the classroom environment, through one-on-one tuition they are able to discuss ideas without reservation which I find, when combined with working on their essay and exam performance, noticeably increases their confidence and grades.

I also offer support with the Verbal, Non-verbal and Decision Making elements of the UKCAT as well as section 3 of the BMAT exams for medical students.

Availability: In light of current government advice I am offering online tutoring and bespoke education packages to support learning. Please inquire if this is of interest.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have been tutoring for nine years and have helped my students achieve their desired grades. I have taught KS3, KS4 and adult learners and have experience of teaching from the following exam boards: AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and Cambridge. I have also taught the new GCSE system (grades 1-9) to a number of students.

I offer a range of proof-reading and editing services.

Emily has been brilliant, we found her quite late but so glad we did. Her in depth knowledge of the English texts my daughter is studying and aspects of English Language has been invaluable. She has given my daughter confidence and reinforced her belief in her own ability to do well. Emily comes well prepared with source material and plans each session beforehand to ensure my daughter gets the most from their time together. She relates well with my daughter and this has really helped her to connect with Emily. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone seeking help and support in English Language and Literature at A Level.

I contacted Emily at the end of March 2013 in desperation having been told I was on for a D in Eng.Lit. After 2 months of seeing Emily once or twice a week with help with my course work and exam prep. I got my a level result today and I got an A star !!!!!! Emily is amazing I would definately recommend !!!!!
