Information about Alexandria
As a teacher I strive to create a life-long desire to learn that is fostered through a supportive and stimulating environment where the child is valued and their achievements celebrated. I hope to develop the child`s self-esteem and positive outlook on their own ability. I believe in the concept of life long learning and the notion that learning should be rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone it should be fun! Through my teaching I equip the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives.

Feedback For Alexandria (4)
We chose Ally to help improve our daughter`s English composition and she has been tutoring her now for several weeks. We have noticed a real improvement in our daughter`s writing, grammar, penmanship and overall learning. Ally tailors each session around a particular theme or topic and not only makes it interesting and fun, but also takes the time to build a rapport. Our daughter really looks forward to her one-to-one`s with Ally and will happily sit and chat about the lessons with us before and after.
On a personal level Ally is great; she`s friendly, warm-hearted and good-natured. She`s also very responsive, from the initial queries about tutoring, to keeping in touch between visits and being flexible to fit around a particular schedule.
The lessons are always constructive yet relaxed, and pitched at just the right level to motivate the child without being pushy. Ally is definitely the type of teacher who would be considered a favourite at school and we`d have no hesitation in recommending her (and have already done so) to others seeking a professional, capable and responsive tutor who is more than capable of getting the best from your child.
We had Alexandria tutoring for 1 month now. This far she has been an excellent English tutor to my year 5 son. She is working efficiently on meeting his specific needs, adjusting the lessons to make it more enjoyable for him. She is kind, but firm, she is interested in his opinions and still advises him on a more efficient way to use his resources and knowledge. My son is really enthusiastic about his session with Alexandria, he values the 1 to 1 attention and does his best to make the most of it. Alexandria is also very good at giving me her feedback. I would definitely recommend Alexandria for tutoring, she is definitely a dedicated professional.
Ally is an excellent teacher. She is focused, passionate and professional! Ally teaches my daughter (reception class) maths, her ability to explain concepts in a manner that is easy to understand by a 5yo and the ability to pin point my daughter`s knowledge gaps are worth noting. Ally travels to my place to teach, she has always been on time. Definitely 5 start!
Alexandria is fantastic. She tailors the sessions around my sons interests and he is making good progress. He really looks forward to seeing her each week.
