Marykate has worked in a diverse range of roles focusing on young people and education for several years. After graduating from King’s College London in 2014 with a first class degree in English Literature and Language, Marykate has gone on to work for Discover Children’s Story Centre in Stratford.

Marykate tailors each lesson to her students needs so that they may reach their long-term goals and work towards a long-term interest in education.

In the past she has taught GSCE English Literature and English Language (AQA) but is confident teaching either subject at all levels; SATS preparation, 11+, GCSE, A Level and Graduate level.

“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.
