Information about Alexis
Hi, I`m a current Head of Chemistry and Head of Science at an Independent school in London. I have been teaching Chemistry both in the UK and New Zealand for 19 years and tutoring for 8 years. I am familiar with AQA GCSE 9-1 (the new Specification), OCR A and AQA linear A levels having taught all of these, as well as writing schemes of work for my current school.
I am also an AQA GCSE exam marker so am fully aware of the challenges and differences that the new exam specifications have caused.
I use a range of techniques to support your son/daughters learning including setting extra work should you or they wish for more practice.
As a father of three children and husband to another teacher, I am fully aware of how important enjoying and understanding a challenging subject like Chemistry is. I only tutor at your house or online so you don`t need to waste valuable time traveling.
In light of the recent covonavirus I am now offering online video tutoring as well.
Availability: I am available most Sundays and evenings during the week, however, this is variable due to my commitments to evening activities as part of my job.
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: 19 Years as a Chemistry teacher.
8 Years as Head of Chemistry
5 years of Head of Faculty of Science.
8 Years Tutoring both in the UK and New Zealand.
BSc in Chemistry (Auckland)

Feedback For Alexis (12)
My son really enjoys his tutorials with Alexis. He has really progressed since they started and Luca feels his grades have significantly improved.
Alexis has provided my daughter with invaluable input and support for her Chemistry A Level. She is aiming for an A grade and feels more confident now Alex has explained the area she found difficult. She looks forward to the sessions as he responds to areas she is querying and finds creative methods to enable her to retain the information. Many thanks!
Alexia is extremely talented teacher and Myra daughter love the subject now.
Alexis is very helpful and thorough, although he has only been with us for a short time he has helped my daughters confidence grow.
Alexis is a hugely talented teacher. He has given my daughter her confidence and love back for the subject. A true relief to have found him!!
Alexis is brilliant. Enthusiastic, expert knowledge and an engaging tutor. Already seen a difference in just a few lessons. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic tutor. Would definitely use him again.
Alexis has been a great help with our son`s Chemistry, so much so that he`s move up 2 grades over the last year. Always flexible with timing and prompt and reliable. J&J
Excellent tutor - clear, enthusiastic, helpful, and has made a noticeable impact on my son`s understanding and confidence. Would be happy to recommend him
Excellent ! Very helpful, enthusiastic, inspirational and switched on. He is familiar with all the examination boards . My son did not want a tutor initially but he now looks forward to his visits and really values his help.
Alexis is an enthusiastic tutor which does much to reassure an anxious parent whose son has lost his zest for Chemistry. Even after only 3 sessions, my son`s issues with Chemistry seem to be resolving.
Excellent, really informative and fun. Highly recommend.
