My son worked with Alison for a very short time before the first lockdown. Alison has a lot of knowledge in her field and my son enjoyed her teaching style.

Colin (Mr)

My daughter enjoyed her sessions very much.

Matha (Mrs)

Alison is currently teaching our daughter in Year 8 and we are really happy with her well organised and interactive teaching approach. My daughter is fully engaged during the lesson and feels comfortable to ask any questions that she doesn’t understand. She finds it easier to remember things with Alison’s techniques and feels much more confident. Would definitely recommend.

Was very helpful - helping my daughter in the end but did waste a lot if the lessons we paid for covering the wrong material - also cancelled a lot of lessons at the end which meant we didn`t have time to find someone else to carry on helping for the most important bit.

I don’t really feel that I can leave a review about Alison because my daughter only had 1 session with her but I’m fed up of tutor hunt pestering me for a review so I have to put something here to make them go away.
