Tutoring

I also offer one-on-one or small group tuition to both primary and secondary aged pupils.

I advocate a flexible and interactive approach to ensure that sessions are tailored to individual’s interests and needs. In addition, authoring and consultancy work often provides links to highly innovative and engaging material, which I am then able to trial with tutees and recommend to parents.

Lessons usually last for an hour and are held at my home, either after school, in the evenings or at weekends. Occasionally, I may visit a tutee/s at their home address. The basic rate for an hour’s individual tuition is £25.00, although this is subject to negotiation where small groups are concerned. Some students see me for a few weeks as this is all that is needed to boost their confidence and self-esteem or address a particular issue that they have; the majority choose to remain with me for much longer, however, with some attending for three years or more! Verbal and/or written feedback is given to both students and parents at the end of each session.

DBS clearance documentation, degree and teaching certification and references are all available to view on request.

Testimonials for my tutoring work

  • Emma has done an excellent job with both of our children. Emma prepares well for the sessions and builds confidence, skills and knowledge in an incremental, organised and deliberate manner. They have both improved significantly in their day to day school work as a result. Emma's experience as an 11+ invigilator combined with her mock exams and exam technique top tips were invaluable as we moved towards the day of the exam. We have no hesitation in recommending Emma.  Parents of Year 4 and Year 6 tutees
  • Emma is an understanding, kind and friendly tutor. Even when I want to give up she says that I should keep going and I will then succeed - she's always right and I have learnt lots from Emma. This has helped me improve a lot at school. I enjoy my time with Emma.  Year 4 tutee
  • Emma is a brilliant tutor who has helped me pass the 11+. She is patient and kind and pushed me to achieve my full potential. I always looked forward to our sessions and she made even hard work fun. The amount of work was fair and I did not feel like I was being over-worked or over-pressurised to pass the exam.  Year 6 tutee
