Emily is a full-time educator with over six years of experience. She is an English Literature graduate (BA) of the University of Aberystwyth where she especially enjoyed papers in Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, female empowerment and Viking Sagas.
Fifteen years of experience working in a variety of schools has given Arabella a secure grounding in examination skills. She is organised, energetic and self-directed and can develop a positive and authoritative rapport thereby creating trust and a good relationship in order to achieve their goals.
Joshua has worked extensively as a private tutor both in the UK and abroad, most recently in Italy and Saudi Arabia. Through this work he has developed a style of tutoring in which the student is challenged (through careful questioning) to make their own discoveries and take a high degree of ownership for their learning.
English Literature has the power to transport you into a world of ideas and English Language gives you the power to transport others into yours. Sophie is passionate about enabling students to find this power within themselves.
"I asked my daughter what she thought of Sarah and she was very positive about her. We used Sarah's tuition mostly to help on English, as she was struggling a bit with comprehension, and also to help her with exam technique. My daughter told me that Sarah was very funny in teaching, which she loved and that she gave her really great tips on how to tackle exam questions.
We did not use Sarah for the math part, as my daughter was already attending Mathnesium near our house, so I cannot comment on this. But it seems that Sarah's style really suited her. She was also very good at sending mock exam papers, correcting them promptly and going through them in detail with her, in a way that was apparently very helpful to her. Her monthly comments were very helpful to me too."
