Hello I'm Emily - your Area Advisor and Tutor Manager for HST Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly!
I'm a dedicated and enthusiastic professional and educator. I have extensive experience as a classroom teacher of French and Spanish. I was also Head of Department in two secondary schools and worked as a Senior Examiner for a national examination board for many years.
Alongside running Home-School Tutoring, I work as an Educational Consultant, Translator and TEFL teacher as well as a modern foreign languages tutor and supply teacher. I always gives 110% to whatever I do!
I'm a personable and patient person, which allows me to tutor individually and manage this area effectively. In my own tutoring I always aim to give engaging and individually tailored lessons and I believe this can really help all students make progress. I take pride in my use of flexible and structured teaching methods so that learners enjoy what they learn. I believe in the enjoyment of learning - this combined with a good sense of humour is often a great path to success!
As well as being an enthusiastic educator, I'm also a passionate sportswoman and enjoys outdoor pursuits such as skiing, running, surfing and cycling. I love the coast,the countryside and the mountains and I'm often found taking part in activities or visiting one of these places, either in the South West of England or further afield! I'm a keen traveller, camper, yogi and baker.
I'm always happy to listen and advise on all aspects of tutoring and home education. I have a thorough knowledge of the national curriculum and I always work to support the school in aiding your child's development.

I look forward to hearing from you!

A 'thank you' to Tutor Teddy!

The teacher gave a knowing smile apparently! So, in answer to your question about how things are going - fab, thank you." (Mother of Ed, Cornwall)
Seen a big improvement ( 7 year old boy - literacy and English)

Penny is very patient, encouraging and puts a lot of effort into making William's lessons fun. Thank you!" Susi, mother of William
