Personal Description:

I'm Alex, and I'm a private tutor. As a keen academic and learner, I'm always seeking to broaden my own knowledge base too, and I genuinely enjoy teaching and passing on knowledge to my students. In my spare time I'm always found with a new book, catching up on the latest critically acclaimed film or TV show, or on the yoga mat! I'm also a professional actor and performer. My diverse professional experience has been very beneficial to many of my students, and performing skills are extremely transferrable to the world of tutoring.

Tutoring Experience:

I have covered AQA, OCR, Edexcel, IB exam boards in English and Theatre, as well as the Cambridge Pre-U English examination.
My teaching experience began at 16, teaching drama classes at my local drama centre in Acting, Verse & Prose and Public Speaking. This started in large classes of up to 15 pupils before progressing onto individual one-to-one tuition. Often this teaching was geared towards examinations in LAMDA, Guildhall and UKA, as well as public festival performances or school shows. Once at University, I also began tutoring locally in English and Drama, as well as Interview Preparation, CV and Essay Writing Skills. I've continued to tutor privately ever since I moved to London 3 years ago and have a wide range of experience and skills, allowing me to precisely adapt my style for each student and their needs.

Tutoring Approach:

Primarily, my approach to tutoring is incredibly sensitive to each student's uniqueness - every student has strengths and weaknesses, goals and ambitions - I help students to feel empowered to achieve their aims and provide them with tools which they can use beyond the scheduled lesson. I believe every student has the capacity to do well if they feel prepared and confident in their material. To do this, I seek to enable independent learning, strengthening natural skills within a student to increase confidence, and building up weaker areas in order to foster a healthy foundation of knowledge and critical thinking. I believe a holistic approach is best, and exposing a student to a broad range of texts, ideas, and theories is a great way to generate passion for the subject.
