Information about Alex
I have a good amount of experience in teaching, having tutored in politics and philosophy for the past 6 years now. This has given me an opportunity to work with all sorts of fascinating young people, both A level students and undergraduates.
I have been delighted with the results I have been able to help my tutees achieve during this time, and also with the amount I have been able to learn from them.
I put my effectiveness as a tutor down to the effort I make sure I put into getting to know my tutees well, their interests and learning style, and to my enthusiasm for the subject matter that I teach.
I am currently studying for an MPhil at the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy. I work as a tutor to support my studies.
I also hold a CELTA English teaching qualification and offer tuition in English language.

Feedback For Alex (8)
I found Alex at the right time when we did not know what to do in the first lockdown. Alex has been the support system that my son needed. He was there for him all through helping him with various subject matters and areas. Having Alex boosted my son`s confidence and helped him feel confident enough to get through his A`levels. He finished last week and he is so glad that Alex was there to get him through it. Thanks Alex

and he is an exceptionally nice person too!
I was under huge pressure before I started working with Alex. He was of great help and very supportive he worked with me from scratch until I understood each topic. More importantly and more impressively was all the research he put in prior to our lesson about my topics, the lessons moved very swiftly as we had a detailed and comprehensive discussion about the both the content and the structure of my essays. The lessons were both extremely useful and very enjoyable, I began doing more reading after our lessons because of how interested I got.
On the whole I couldn`t say enough good things about Alex, a very smart tutor. Very supportive and incredibly passionate about teaching. He will definitely help you achieve the grade you are looking for. Thank you.
Alex has been an amazing tutor, who has helped me understand all aspects of my "Philosophy of the Mind" module, which is a core part of my Neuroscience degree. He has enabled me to gain an enormous amount of knowledge in very little time, as his lessons are packed full of information, which is delivered in an uncomplicated and understandable manner. As well as helping me understand the lecture content of my module, Alex has also helped me gain good essay writing skills.
I am grateful to Alex for making me feel at easy, and helping me gain confidence in a subject that I previously had no knowledge of. He is an excellent tutor who is approachable, friendly and passionate for what he does. I would recommend Alex to any prospective students out there!
