Emily is an enthusiastic, warm and motivating tutor with a first class degree from Bristol University; including a distinction in oral French and a first class grade on her final year dissertation on Racinian tragedy. At A level, Emily committed to taking 6 AS subjects, taking 5 of those to A level, obtaining A’s in all 5 (French, Drama, Maths, English, French, Biology). At GCSE she received 8 A* and 2 A’s.
Emily is in fact half French and spent a year living in Paris where she studied at the Parisian drama school, Le Cours Simon. Her French is therefore at a very high level both technically and culturally.
Emily aims to create friendly, trusting relationships with students, in an environment where the student feels encouraged to launch into the foreign language without fear of making mistakes. She strives to make lessons fun and interactive, bringing the student’s own interests into teaching a language. Emily spent her last term at university working with a youth theatre company called Travelling Light. She had to work closely with groups of children from the age of 9-18, orchestrating events and workshops and enjoys working with students in animated environments as well as within the traditional setting of the one-to-one tutorial.
When she isn’t tutoring, Emily will most likely be reading, swimming or walking her dog. Emily finds tutoring just as enriching for herself as it is for the student and very much hopes to continue exploring the French language alongside her students.
