Information about Ali


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 nearly 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 and am currently looking to take on homeschooled children during school hours. I also tutor 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.

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.

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.
Ali 🌻;;🦋;;🙂;;🌈;;
