I studied with her for 6 months via Skype to prepare for the new AQA German A-level, covering conversation, language work and literature essays. Alix had an incredibly thorough knowledge of the syllabus and was always able to suggest extra textbooks and resources both for the A-level and to improve my German more generally. She is an excellent teacher of both language and literature. Her lessons are always well-planned and focussed on the needs of the student. In conversation she helps one to build up confidence while providing lots of suggestions for more varied or complex vocabulary. Her marking is always prompt, clear and full of invaluable advice. As someone studying for the exam as a private candidate I particularly valued her reliability and organisation, which were unsurpassed.
Anyone looking to prepare for an exam could not find a better teacher; I cannot recommend Alix highly enough.
