Information about Alex
I love one-to-one tutoring because I get to tailor my lessons to suit each student`s needs, personalising the content so that it deals with the areas which concern them the most, in ways that engage their individual interests. My after class reports make it easy to track your child`s progress and to encourage their improvement with the weekly homework I set.
I tutor across multiple exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and Cambridge International. I hold a current DBS and a 1st class MA in English Literature from the University of St Andrews, and have over 4 years of tutoring and mentoring experience.
In 2020 and 2021 students sitting their GCSE English Literature and English Language obtained excellent grades with 95% of students obtaining a level 7, 8 or 9. Students sitting their A Level in English Literature also achieved excellent results with 90% of students obtaining an A-A* grade.
Availability: I have two recurring sessions left available:
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Experience: Over the course of four years I have improved my students grades on an average of 2.5 grade boundaries. My A Level students have moved up from Ds to Bs and Cs to As and A*s. My GCSE students have increased their grades from a 4 to a 7 and 5 to an 8. My KS2 SATs students have also achieved consistently high marks in reading comprehension, spelling and grammar. Through my teaching efforts in 2014 I raised the A*-B grade average for A Level English Language at Portsmouth College by 87.5%. Every one of my students have been able to fulfil the conditional offers of their chosen Universities.

Feedback For Alex (3)
She is amaizing . Very patient and caring. My daughter enjoys every lesson and also she learned so much since she started. Highly recommend.
Alex is a fantastic tutor. Her friendly approach has really helped my son gain confidence in reading comprehension and writing in full, grammatically correct sentences. I am really impressed with the progress he is making which is clear to see in his recent test papers. After each lesson Alex sends me an after-class report which I have found immensely useful. I highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for an English tutor.
Alex writes notes that provide valuable insight into the texts that we are doing together, alongside being supportive and cooperative for my specific needs. She makes sure to incorporate and develop your ideas so that you aren`t just copying and pasting what she has told you but instead are drawing the knowledge from yourself, making it more memorable and personal. Overall, Alex is a lovely tutor and has benefitted me greatly!
