Information about Amelia
I am an experienced professional tutor, having enjoyed a career in communications and publishing for prestigious organisations such as Oxford University Press and the Society of Antiquaries of London.
I am available for tutoring (currently online) in humanities subjects such as English, History and Philosophy, as well as help with editing personal statements and academic essays.
I`m a friendly, calm and kind teacher who will personalise lessons to meet your individual requirements - believing that every single learner is different. I pride myself on offering honest, supportive feedback and recommending additional educational resources/approaches should I feel they be necessary.
What do I teach?
Academic Writing: I`m happy to proofread dissertations/essays and am able to guide students through the complexities of academic writing and referencing. I must stress that the content of essays must be the students own.
Humanities Subjects: English Language and Literature (including English as a Foreign Language), History and Philosophy. Taught from Primary to GCSE and A Level.
Alongside my professional experience, I have an M.Phil in Modern History from Bristol University, as well as a First Class MA from St Andrews University, studying Art History, History, and Philosophy. I was awarded medals in all four years of study, as well as achieving the top grade in both my History and Philosophy courses. I feel creativity combined with a logical approach to learning is extremely important whatever the subject, and I help students not only with content - but also their approach to study.
Where do I teach?
I mainly teach online via Zoom - and consequently offer lessons to students all over the UK (and further afield). In person, I currently split my time between Warwickshire and London - and am able to travel up to 5 miles to student`s homes - in Warwickshire, this encompasses Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Leamington-Spa, Alcester, Henley-in-Arden and the surrounding areas. In London, this encompasses Chiswick, Mortlake, Barnes, Kew Gardens, Richmond and other nearby districts.
What do I charge?
I charge £40 per hour - payable via the Tutor Hunt website.
The support does not end with our face-to-face lessons! I provide all students/parents with my personal contact details for any questions, resources, proofreading etc.etc., and am here to help with just about anything learning-related throughout the week.
I`m always open to new challenges, so please do get in touch. I will look forward to meeting you.
Availability: Flexible - please do enquire for further availability.
Willing to travel: 10 miles

Feedback For Amelia (15)
Amelia was kind, patient and very knowledgeable and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Amelia is a great tutor and prepares her lessons really well. My daughter (in year 11) loves the lessons with Amelia and gets more confidence in Shakespeare, creative writing etc. Her lessons are diverse, motivating and never boring. I could write much more about Amelia, but I guess the best proof we are very happy with her is that we just asked her to start tutoring our youngest daughter as well.
I had a rough start with history (namely my previous tutor) and asked Amelia to step in and do my whole course again with me... in less than a year. She was amazing! Amelia pushed me when I needed to be pushed, and left me to my own studies when she knew I could plan it myself. Shes been one of my favourite tutors: shes friendly, patient, enthusiastic and Ive loved every second of my lessons with her.
Amilea is everything you could wish for in a Tutor. Modern, encouraging, fun, easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable. My 15 year old daughter couldn`t be happier.
Firstly, I can`t recommend Amelia highly enough. She has been tutoring my Year 10 daughter (Lucy) in English for the last couple of months - initially face-to-face, and more recently on a `virtual` basis. Amelia has a really easy and natural disposition and has built a brilliant rapport with Lucy - as well as being professional and communicative in keeping me updated on Lucy`s progress and what they are working on. In the current climate, I have felt much better in the knowledge that Lucy has this additional support and help from Amelia. To reiterate my first comment, I would fully recommend Amelia.
Amelia has been helping my daughter for six months now with English GCSE preparation. She is inspiring, focussed and brings the texts alive; she is also unfailingly well prepared and professional.
Amelia has been the tutor of my daughter for GCSE. She is an excellent tutor. She always comes to ours well prepared. She is always kind, encouraging and well organized. We are glad to have met her.
I am so glad that I`ve found Amelia. She is so helpful! Really recommend her as a tutor!
Amelia is a great, highly professional and lively tutor. Our daughter is always happy to see her.
Amelia is always on time. She is always prepared and well-organised.Amelia is really nice and helpful,so we are very satisfied with her and we can recommend her to anyone!
Amelia has a great manner, she is very patient and very clear in explaining complex philosophical theories. We are very happy with her and would definitely recommend her.
Miss Amelia is tutoring my daughter through A level modern history and English language and literature.We have tried several tutors before only to be disappointed in the lacklustre demeanor by both those who are subsidising through uni or otherwise. Amelia`s approach to sessions are always well prepared, professional, attentive and genuine. There is a dedicated level of detail towards the needs of the pupil that goes beyond the call of duty.This was clear from the first engagement where Amelia researched into detail of the syllabus and exam board`s to be tutored . We feel very fortunate to have chanced on Amelia and thereby warrants the highest endorsement.
Amelia really helped my daughter with her History A level. Amelia often prepared material outside of the tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend.
Amelia is a wonderful tutor. She is really enthusiastic about her subjects and makes lessons really fun. She also comes really well prepared with original ideas to bring the subjects to life. Our daughter also adores her company.
Amelia is lovely - very bright and capable, but really puts our daughter at ease. She has immediately grasped where to focus for maximum gain and is already building our daughter`s confidence and enjoyment in the subject.
