Information about Alice
I am an experienced English specialist teacher with 14 years teaching A level and GCSE in private and state schools. I have also been an external GCSE English examiner for 10 years and can share secrets and tips to boost confidence to pass GCSE.
I have a successful tuition business and tutor evenings and all weekend. I have worked at Bristol and Bath university teaching English.
Last year my students improved their grades by 2 levels and the average result was a level 7 in literature and a level 7 in language. One student raised her grades from 5 to 8 and one student achieved two level 9s.
I specialise in teaching young people who struggle to learn due to mental health problems. I feel that learning is not just about academic results but also about heart. Curiosity and kindness are just as important to me as high grades and correct punctuation.
I have taught thousands of young people over the years but whether in private schools or failing college, most people are the same - whether rich or poor. They want to be seen and heard and respected. This is the greatest lesson.
Availability: I am available in the day, evening and at weekends - both Saturday and Sunday.
I am running weekly workshops for those who would like tuition at a reduced rate of £15. Maximum number is 10 and the workshops will concentrate on how examiners mark your work. This insider knowledge always helps young people to improve their grades.
I also deliver skype lessons at weekends.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have taught GCSE and A level English for 14 years and been an external examiner for GCSE English for 10 years. I have taught in private fee paying schools, private boarding schools and in large colleges with over 300 students taking resit GCSE in some inner city areas. I also teach A level candidates and prepare younger students for Sats and entrance exams In the summer I share my expertise teaching English as a foreign language at Bath University.
I am a mother of grown up boys and a life coach. I am an English specialist with a PGCE in English but I am also someone with a vast experience of teaching young people with mental health issues.

Amazing tutor, has definitely boosted my grades 3-6! So lovely and friendly. Easy to get along with
Alice is a great person and a great teacher. We are very please with the progress of our 15 year old boy. Grades improved almost immediately and continue to do so. Thanks Alice.
Alice is a great tutor, very friendly and knowledgable. She improved my daughters confidence after her first lesson. I would highly recommend Alice!
My son does not concentrate at school, but the one to one tuition and Alices method of teaching has engaged him. My son is an older student who does not enjoy homework and I was worried he would complain or make excuses, but this has not been the case. I believe this is due to Alices calm approach and method of teaching.
Very good Tutor, very able to teach, initially and curriculum.
