Information about Alisha
A former Teacher of English at a Grammar School in Greater Manchester (Year 7-13), with experience teaching the AQA, Edexcel and Pearson I/GCSE specification.
I hold a BA HONS in English Language and a Secondary English PGCE (Outstanding)-both qualifications were obtained at The University of Manchester.
I have a detailed insight and understanding of the educational system, as I am an Examiner for AQA (GCSE English Language) and a Senior Assessor for OCR (A-Level English Language).
I ensure that the tutoring sessions enable students to practise the skills that are required for the exam. This practise leads to familiarity and therefore, an increase in confidence. Written responses are marked by myself and I will give guidance by pointing out areas to improve.
I also frequently share the mark scheme for each question, so that students can understand the elements and areas that examiners seek to reward.
Availability: I am available after school on weekdays and have limited availability for sessions on a weekend.
I am also able to tutor online if you are outside the stated radius.
Willing to travel: 5 miles

Feedback For Alisha (7)
Alisha is actually as amazing tutor. She is so personable and has given my daughter a completely different perspective and new found enthusiasm for English. My daughter does not give praise easily but she found Alishas help and guidance extremely inspiring . She has enabled her to look at the subject with fresh eyes and has taught her to answer questions in a way to achieve much better marks.Cant recommend her enough
My daughter needed a helping hand with English before her GCSE`s . I could not have been more happy with Alisha, she is friendly, professional and an expert in her field
Helped to teach me new techniques for my English exam and went through what to include in order to get a good grade. Also went through many practice papers with really good feedback and went through other responses to questions to help me gain confidence in my exam and helped me to understand where I could improve.
Alisha recently offered my son some intensive tuition. She was very encouraging with a positive focus. He really enjoyed her teaching style. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other students.
Alisha is focused and taylors the tutoring to my child`s needs.
I cannot recommend and praise Alisha highly enough. Alisha is extremely knowledgeable, professional, approachable, punctual and reliable, and has built up a great rapport with our whole family. Alisha has worked one-to-one with my son this year as he had been struggling with GCSE English (Year 11). My son sat his GCSE`s and passed both Literature and Language. I honestly believe that without Alisha`s tuition the outcome to his GCSE results would have been very different. Thank you Alisha, you made the world of difference to us.
Really pleased with Alisha my son has already shown a marked improvement in his work. Would highly recommend.
