About the Founder
Emily was later offered a training opportunity to work alongside an esteemed educator in London, preparing students for the 7+, 8+ and 11+ entrance examinations. It gave her an invaluable insight into the process, the schools, the material, whilst working alongside families and students during this time. Emily built a strong reputation on the circuit, along with teaching weekly classes at a Saturday School. Developing her own vision for a tutoring company – one that encompassed all aspects of the process – Emily set up Ascent Tutors, recruiting the colleagues she knows and works alongside. Emily remains an active tutor – specialising in comprehension and composition technique.
In her spare time Emily is a fiction writer, completing her third novel in 2019. With a passion to inspire a new generation of writers, Emily set up Stage Story in 2016. Stage Story runs creative writing workshops that are unique in their formula by using actors and theatrical performance to teach children the essential components of story writing. And when inspired tales are crafted, parents and children watch as their written pieces are performed by Stage Story’s talented acting team.
