Ms Emma Y

Qualified teacher with over 20 years experience teaching chiefly English Language and Literature at Secondary Level through to A Level. Examiner for SATs, GCSE (AQA) and A Level (AQA). I have been tutoring since 2005 for students from Year 6 to A Level. Here is the feedback from my last role- Dear Emma I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the help you have given A over the past 4 months. She has always said that she enjoyed her sessions with you and found them extremely useful. You have really helped to restore her confidence as she recovered from Long Covid and she felt that her exam on Tuesday went well. Given that she is not prone to hyperbole, this is an incredibly enthusive response from A! I hope that you have an enjoyable summer and thank you once again for all your time and patience.

I have previously a subject leader in English and experienced working with a wide variety of Special Educational Needs. I am confident with teaching all subjects within the Primary National Curriculum across all stages, EYFS, KS 1 and KS 2. In March 2020 I decided to leave full time teaching and become a tutor. At the moment, I am working with a range of children across the primary age group , also I am working with children who are being home-schooled for a variety of reasons.
