Meet Emily Glassford: University of Oxford Doctoral Candidate .

I am a current doctoral candidate in History at the University of Oxford. After completing my BA in English and European History (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) at Northwestern University in 2015, I received a MSt in British and European History (distinction) at the University of Oxford in 2016. I have tutored students—both virtually and in person—in writing, executive functioning, test prep, and humanities subjects since 2015. I am passionate about helping students improve their coursework and skills, gain admission to top universities, and win thousands of dollars in scholarships. I understand the academic context of this area, being a product of MCPS (Richard Montgomery ‘11).

In conjunction with my detail-oriented approach to reading, writing, and editing, I guide students through strategies that help them gain the confidence to think critically through their writing, test-taking, and other academic analysis processes. I also tailor my approach to each student’s particular needs, making sure that they feel comfortable and appropriately supported along the way.

University of Oxford

I earned my M.St. in British and European History (with Distinction) from the University of Oxford in 2016, for which I completed my dissertation, “The Riot at the Steelyard and the Evil May Day Riots: Political Culture and Language of Anti-Alien Disorder in Early Tudor London.” I am also a current doctoral candidate at Oxford, and my Oxford college awarded me the Crewe Graduate Award for two years of study. In addition to my formal studies, I have spent time as a member of my college’s Middle Common Room Social Team, Academic Team, and Executive Committee, and I have presented papers at both my college and multiple academic conferences.
