Relaxed, fun and inspiring lessons held online (via skype) or in the comfort of your own home.
Splitting my time between Warwickshire and London, I cover English, History and Philosophy for Primary, GCSE, A Level and Adult learners – helping either yourself or your child develop confidence and key skills.
**With recent UK school closures and many parents / students looking to continue learning at home, do get in touch to discuss online lessons for any combination of subjects. I’ll do my best to help!**
“Amelia is lovely – very bright and capable, but really puts our daughter at ease. She immediately grasped where to focus for maximum gain and is already building our daughter`s confidence and enjoyment in the subject.”
“Amelia is a wonderful tutor. She is really enthusiastic about her subjects and makes lessons really fun. She also comes well prepared with original ideas to bring the subjects to life. Our daughter also adores her company.”
A Level Philosophy
“Amelia has a great manner, she is very patient and very clear in explaining complex philosophical theories. We are very happy with her and would definitely recommend her.”
“I am so glad that I’ve found Amelia. She is so helpful! Really recommend her as a tutor!”
“Amelia is a great, highly professional and lively tutor. Our daughter is always happy to see her.”
A Level history
“Amelia really helped my daughter with her History A level. Amelia often prepared material outside of the tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend.”
I am an experienced professional tutor, with a First Class MA and M.Phil. from St Andrews and Bristol Universities respectively. I have enjoyed a career in communications and publishing for prestigious organisations such as Oxford University Press and the Society of Antiquaries of London.
I`m a friendly, calm and kind teacher who will personalise lessons to meet your individual requirements and interests – believing every learner is different. I am always open to new challenges, so please get in touch if you think I might be able to help. Take a look at my CV for further information.
What do I charge?
I charge £30-40 per lesson (depending on the student’s requirements), and can provide online learning via skype or travel up to 5 miles from my base in Claverdon, Warwickshire. This means that I cover Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington-Spa, Henley-in-Arden, Warwick, Alcester and the surrounding areas.
The support does not end with our face-to-face lessons! I provide all students with my personal contact details for any questions, resources, proofreading… etc.etc., and am here to help with just about anything learning-related throughout the week. Do contact me to discuss any requirements, I would love to hear from you.
