Information about Ali

FULLY BOOKED CURRENTLY

I have worked in Education for over 11 years including primary, secondary and adult education.

I have been private tutoring in Maths, English and Functional Skills (Maths) for 2 years. I receive very positive feedback from parents and tutees, saying that my tutoring has improved confidence and abilities, resulting in good progress made. I tutor pupils from state and private schools in addition to oversea students.

I was informed in August, that my two GCSE, year 11 students passed their GCSE Foundation and Higher Maths exams. One student whose school said he would not pass before I began tutoring him, has been awarded a level 4 Foundation and the other who was at Foundation level has been awarded a level 5 Higher pass. Many of my students have moved up a class and are receiving higher grades in tests.


I have a Foundation Degree in Learning Support, a Degree in Education and Training and a Graduate Certificate in Secondary Education. I trained as a Secondary Maths teacher.

I am very patient and will always find alternative ways to explain concepts to support understanding and learning. I am extremely enthusiastic about teaching and learning and love to share my knowledge with others to help them achieve their specific targets. I have a good sense of humour and am able to quickly build a good rapport with learners.

Availability: I am adhering to government and private tutor guidelines by continuing to tutor online.

I currently have 20 online students, ranging from 6 years to adult, who I tutor in Maths, English and other primary subjects.

I have several students with Special Educational Needs, including Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia. I also tutor students whose first language is not English.

I am flexible and will try to accommodate your preferred times around my other commitments.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I worked as a Maths and English Intervention Specialist for 5 years in primary education, which included preparing pupils for their SATS in Year 6 and after-school group and 1:1 tuition. In addition, I was employed as a Teaching Assistant within the SEND team for 2 years in secondary education, supporting primarily in Mathematics along with the rest of the curriculum . I have taught Maths in several secondary schools and provided classroom support for Adult Education Functional Skills Maths. I did have 11 face to face tutees before lockdown - both English and Maths. I have tutored students with ages ranging from 5 years to 73.

My specialism is Maths, having completed and passed 2 out of 3 phases of a teacher training (PGCE) in Secondary Mathematics in 2017. I had secured a teaching post in a Portsmouth secondary school, commencing September 2017 but decided that full-time teaching within a school was not a desired option. I am also experienced and skilled in supporting the learning of Literacy and English Language.

I would certainly recommend Ali as a English teacher. Ali is a fantastic, my daughter engages and works really well during the lessons. Before taking lessons with Ali my daughter absolutely hated English with a passion. Ali knows just how to get my daughter to engage and enjoy the lessons, my daughter said this week, I really enjoyed the lesson today. Ali is lovely and has a great personality. My daughter has only had 4 lessons and we can see the improvement already.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much Lisa for this very thoughtful and kind feedback.
I find the lessons with your daughter very rewarding. So lovely to hear her comments about our sessions. It’s fantastic that you are seeing an improvement in her English skills.

Ali had been tutoring my daughter during the lockdown period. My daughter has really enjoyed the sessions and has benefited a lot from the lessons. The sessions are varied and Ali keeps my daughter engaged and stimulated. Ali is great at giving feedback and identifying areas where further support is needed and uses this information as a focus for the next session. I have been really impressed with the sessions and hope to continue with these in the future.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful feedback. I have really enjoyed tutoring your daughter - such a delightful and bright little girl. I am so pleased she has benefitted from our sessions and wish her all the very best with her return to school.
If I do get any free after-school slots, I will get in touch. Take good care. Ali.

We engaged Ali this year to help our Y1 and Y3 son`s while school is closed, I wish we had done so last year, she is amazing! Both boys adore their lessons and are both exceeding our expectations. Ali is covering English, Math and French (and other areas as the boys wish) and is well prepared, keeps the boys focused while obviously enjoying their lessons. Thanks for al your support!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much, Sharne, for taking the time to leave this kind and thoughtful feedback. It is much appreciated. I always look forward to tutoring your 2 boys. Ali

Very enthusiastic tutor who has brought our daughter’s confidence on leaps and bounds. She has a solid grasp of SEN and is able to adapt her teaching according to the individual needs of the student. Highly recommended.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much, Kathryn, for your thoughtful feedback. It’s a real pleasure tutoring Elordie and sharing my passion for Maths with her. She has so many ‘in awe’ and lightbulb moments when we discuss and discover links and patterns in Maths. She shows great potential and it is so rewarding seeing her confidence and skills develop. Ali. 🙂;;

Ali is brilliant . Really patient with my son who has some additional needs (has a sensory disorder , mild aspergers and previous serious illness ). He works well with her (and he is very fussy about most teachers ). She is positive and encouraging, which is just what he needs after a very difficult time at school . Thanks Ali !

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much, Zoe.
Lovely words. I love working with Will.
I really appreciate you taking the time to give this feedback.
Take care. Hope your week is a calm and safe one.
