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.
I tutor across multiple exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and Cambridge International. Positivity and encouragement are the keys to success and I set no limits on what each student can achieve. I hold a current DBS and a 1st class MA in English Literature from the University of St Andrews, and have over 3 years of tutoring and mentoring experience.
Availability: I am currently completely booked over the weekend with limited availability on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please enquire.
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Experience: Over the course of almost 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. 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.

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!
