Personal Statement

Emily, a current doctoral candidate in History at the University of Oxford, completed her B.A. in English and European History at Northwestern University in 2015 and her M.St. in British and European History at the University of Oxford in 2016. She has tutored students --both virtually and in person -- in writing and humanities subjects since 2015, and she has helped students improve their coursework and skills, gain admission to top universities, and win scholarships.
