Emma is a hugely enthusiastic tutor, who strives to make tutees as passionate about her subjects as she is. Having suffered from dyslexia herself, she understands that what works for some individuals does not apply to others: learning is not one-size-fits-all, you have to find what clicks for you. This also means that the student’s relationship with their tutor is very important—they need to feel able to say when a learning method is not working and comfortable to say when they do not understand.
Emma graduated from Oxford University this year with a high 2:1 in Philosophy and Theology and two prizes for college Philosophy exams. She is now going on to study International Relations at King’s College London. At school, Emma was awarded the sixth form Academic Prize, and achieved 40/45 points in the International Baccalaureate, with 7s (the highest grade) in English, History and Philosophy, as well as full marks in her Philosophy coursework. Outside of her studies, Emma speaks French and is currently learning Spanish. She enjoys music, playing both trumpet and piano to grade eight. She also loves writing and was Deputy Editor of Oxford’s student newspaper (Cherwell) before going on to create and edit her own travel magazine, Wild. She is currently doing a sixth month long internship at The Economist where she specializes in Public Policy, Economics and Politics.
