« Alexandra was an extremely friendly, supportive and patient mentor ... and as a result of support from Alexandra, Kathryn's confidence grew and she started to achieve higher grades in her English lessons. She has just completed her GCSE exams, gaining an A* in English literature and an A in English, and is planning to study English Literature at A level in September. I am extremely grateful to the time Alexandra spent with Kathryn and cannot recommend her highly enough. »

English, Maths, German and French.

I hold a degree from Cambridge University in German and French (high 2:1). I am also a qualified English teacher (PGCE University of East Anglia), trained to teach English Literature and Language from year 7 through to GCSEs and A-levels. I also have 4 A-levels in English Literature, German, French and General Studies (all at grade A), and 10 GCSEs (7 A*s and 3 As).

I charge £35/40 per lesson, depending on the level involved.

I teach at home in Stroud Green (N19). I can also travel to pupils' houses in nearby areas: Highgate, Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Hampstead, West Hampstead, Finsbury Park. I can travel to areas in central London accessible from the Victoria and Piccadilly lines.

- When are you available?

I am flexible and can teach during and after the school day (4-7pm). I am also available to teach during the school holidays.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 10 years' experience in education and an excellent track record in helping individual students achieve success.

I have taught in primary and secondary schools. I also have 4 years' experience of extensive 1:1 tuition, both private and for local councils. I have taught a huge variety of pupils of all ages, abilities, backgrounds, and levels of motivation!

I have experience of successfully preparing pupils for 11+ and CE examinations, as well as GCSE English language, literature, Maths, German and French, and A-level English literature and German.

Having trained in multiple methods of teaching and working with young people, I have developed my own cutting-edge, highly successful approach.

I have experience of working with pupils with dyslexia, ADHD and ESBD, as well as extremely able pupils (gifted and talented plus!)

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

Alexandra was an extremely friendly, supportive and patient mentor ... and as a result of support from Alexandra, Kathryn's confidence grew and she started to achieve higher grades in her English lessons. She has just completed her GCSE exams, gaining an A* in English literature and an A in English, and is planning to study English Literature at A level in September.

I am extremely grateful to the time Alexandra spent with Kathryn and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Alex worked with my very shy 16yr old in preparation for his French oral GCSE. Stringing a sentence together ... in another language was something I thought impossible. Alex had no such doubts and not only did my son thoroughly enjoy the sessions, he passed his exam with flying colours.

Alex took my two very different children and showed them the joy and fun in learning. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Mark was struggling to decide which university course to apply for...Alex worked with him on two occasions and left him feeling much more confident and inspired about writing his personal statement...Mark received an unconditional offer to read Economics at the University of Exeter...
When working with young people, Alex is able to put them at their ease and her approach makes it possible for them to tackle tasks that they would otherwise find too difficult or daunting. I recommend her highly.

Joasia Rejman, Student

Alex was always flexible in her approach in order to fit in with my specific requirements.
I found the sessions to be both enjoyable and beneficial, as Alex is a very open and approachable teacher who clearly knows her subjects very well and I would not hesitate in recommending her to others.
