Emma joined Action Tutoring in December 2016 as Programme Coordinator for London, before becoming Programme Manager for London and Sussex.

As a Programme Manager, Emma oversees the delivery of our tutoring programmes in partner schools in London and Sussex. She is in charge of maintaining and developing relationships with partner schools and make sure tutoring sessions run smoothly.

Prior to a period of travelling in South East Asia and South America, Emma worked for a children’s charity for three years supporting children and with their practical, emotional and educational needs, as well as coordinating volunteers for the charity’s after school programmes.

She then worked for a training organisation whose aim is to ensure that every child learns to read and write, no matter what their personal circumstances are.

She is passionate about tackling educational inequality and child poverty and strongly believes that all children and young people should be able to have an equal start in life, no matter what their background is.
