Information about Alison

I am an experienced examiner for GCSE and A-Level History. I have developed considerable and extensive knowledge of the GCSEs, especially with AQA and particularly the iGCSE papers and Edexcel. For A-Level I mark the international papers and summer exam papers for AQA and CIE. I am familiar with the rigours of exams, timing and techniques in order for student`s to achieve their full potential.

I have also taught GCSE English. I have a detailed understanding of the AQA and Edexcel specifications and have developed effective techniques to analyse text and enhance creativity.

In my current position, I have developed the teaching of the 11+ Reasoning and Non-Verbal reasoning to complement the demands of the GDST. As a result, my students have been offered places (and scholar-ships) at Wycombe Abbey, Godolphin and Latymer, City of London School for Girls and Francis Holland. The boys have also been offered places at Latymer, Dulwich College and Mill Hill.

Availability: After 6pm Monday-Thursday.


Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have been teaching for 20 years and taught GCSE History and English to different cohorts and abilities during that time. I currently teach AQA but have taught WJEC, Edexcel and OCR in the past.
I am an examiner for AQA and am familiar with the exam technique and subject knowledge across all topics.
I also teach and mark Common Entrance History and Geography.

Tutors Response :

I am a professional teacher and respond to messages.
Please revisit our messages and you’ll see we had several interactions that concluded with you sending through some papers when you had purchased my details. I never received the papers.

Alison is a very pleasant and experienced teacher who has been prompt , friendly and utterly reliable. We have only recently started the sessions, but Alison has already helped our son organise his work and begun structuring his revision and coursework. He is far more confident and optimistic about the subject and I am sure he will do far better with her input.
