Hi there! My name is Alex, and I graduated from King's College London with a First in Geography (BSc) in 2016. I am currently working in and around the Gloucester and Cheltenham area.

I also have an Enhanced DBS/CRB certificate which I am happy to share upon request.
Having tutored full time for over three years I am now tutoring on a part-time basis. In recent months I have been a Geography tutor at Imperial College London during A Level revision courses, and more recently I have worked with private sixth forms to provide one-on-one tuition on site. I also have experience providing one-on-one home schooling, covering an entire syllabus over several months with fantastic results. I am very familiar with AQA, Edexcel, and OCR syallbuses. I am also familiar with the CIE Geography syllabus.
My main focus is trying to spark a genuine interest within the student for the subject. I do so by demonstrating my own enthusiasm, and showing the different applications various subjects have to the real world - as I understand textbook learning can sometimes feel dull and not relevant to the 'real world'. I then try to focus on the student's weaker subject areas first, determining where exactly the issues are stemming from. Once addressed, I then work with the student to solidify their stronger areas to help build their overall confidence in the subject.
