Information about Alex
I am a graduate from King`s College London & Masters Graduate from University College London. After attending a state school where I was the only person in the year to gain an A star in History GCSE, I believe I have a wide exposure to the challenges and constraints of the classroom. I followed this by gaining an A grade in my History A-level and 1st degree.
I have now tutored for 6+ years, taught with Teach First, hold an Undergraduate and Masters Degree in History from King`s College London & University College London respectively. Nearly all students I have taught have exceeded their target grade, I believe this is self driven with me placed to coach in knowledge retention, writing technique, debating skills and supporting on all areas which could prevent students reaching full potential. I am currently researching for a high profile author who is writing a historical work, having completed a summer internship with the European Commission. I now have a full time job in `tech`, and continue to tutor as I love to teach and share the knowledge I have been fortunate to acquire over a number of years.
I have a wide interest in history, and am familiar with a wide range of topics. These span from Russia, the middle East and Africa, to Europe from the early middle ages. My specialisms are modern British history from 1900, African history from colonialism to the present, Chinese History and the Cold War.
I spend my time either studying, socialising or working. I believe my strong work ethic and personable skills have got me to where I am today, and would value the opportunity to assist those who may need it at a GCSE, A-level or Degree & Masters standard.

Feedback For Alex (8)
Alex tutored my son in A-level history and I found him to be an excellent tutor. He was extremely organised, worked through the syllabus methodically, and tested my sons knowledge of each topic thoroughly. Not only did my son receive an A grade in history as a result, but Alex taught him good study skills, which is invaluable. He is also very friendly and punctual. I would highly recommend him.
Alex is a fantastic tutor. He is completely dedicated and committed. He helped my daughter with her History A level. His lessons were brilliant and he was quick to work out what she needed. He is also a delight to have around. Snap him up.
Excellent tutor, flexible, dedicated, inspiring and motivates my son well
Alex has proved an outstandingly good tutor for our son doing A level resits. He has an excellent understanding of the syllabus and exam board requirements, and applies this very effectively to his planning of lessons and topics. Whilst highly focused and on the ball, he has a great gift of communication, helping to make the whole process of learning unintimidating and inspiring. Highly recommended
Alex is an excellent tutor.
Alex was absolutely fantastic for me when i really needed help with my history retake which I had not previously done well in. He helped me with every aspect of the exam, particularly helping me improve on the factors of essay writing which needed it most, as well as giving me essential help on the actual knowledge required as well as instructing me how to analyse effectively. He was very enthusiastic and enjoyable to have and i also found him to be very knowledgeable on my coursework topic which he also helped me with. Would absolutely recommend Alex to anybody who needs tutoring as he has boosted my confidence as well as everything else. Solid chap
Apart from being an exceptionally good historian, Alex is motivated, dilegent and understanding. He helped me greatly in my History A-level and I am definitely going to use his tutoring further to prepare for the A2 exams.
I would definitely recommend his services to anybody who needs help with Histroy, as he makes everything clear and easy while being friendly and nice to work with!
Absolutely great tutor, fast and efficient communication, and a great deal of help!
Would definitely contact for future tuition,
Thanks a lot!
