I am currently working towards my PhD in Economics and Finance at King’s College London, previously I completed my Undergraduate degree from Goldsmiths, University of London in English Literature, and subsequently my MSc from Queen Mary’s University of London in International Financial Management.
I have been tutoring both professionally and within my school/university from the past eight years beginning with the peer mentoring program at my high school, this position was a peer to peer tutoring program which allowed students to tutor other students both in their year and lower classes, in subjects they scored particularly well in.
I tutored Economics, Business and Management as well as English. Furthermore, I was a PAL Mentor during my 2nd and 3rd year at Goldsmiths, University of London, which entailed tutoring and assisting 1st year undergraduate students with their academic work, as well as assisting them with the transition from high school to university learning.
In addition I have worked as a private tutor for roughly 4 years now, teaching subjects such as ACT English, IB Economics, A level Business Studies, Undergraduate Finance, Undergraduate English, GCSC Math, 11+ Exams, among several other subjects.
I believe that private tutoring is a very personal thing, and as such study methods and approaches need to be altered according to the needs of the student. My primary aim is to enable students to truly enjoy the subjects they study, whether that involves teaching through hands on examples or practicing past papers. I feel that students need to be able to relate to the material, and that it the key to improved performance as well as academic confidence. I believe that my strongest asset as a tutor is not only my knowledge of the material but the ability to understand the needs as well as strengths and weaknesses of each individual student prior to the creation of customized lesson plans.
“My son got a scholarship (we found out today), so we are very grateful for all Emmanuel did. My son really enjoyed the tutorials; they gave him confidence and polished his exam technique.”
Tom Fenton is a marvellous tutor, striking a perfect balance of erudition, encouragement, judicious pressure, kindness and humour. His work with my daughter produced stellar results in the form of three scholarships; I can’t recommend him too highly.
