I ensure that the tutoring sessions enable students to practise the skills that are required for the exam. This practise leads to familiarity and therefore, an increase in confidence. Written responses are marked by myself and I will give guidance by pointing out areas to improve.
I also frequently share the mark scheme for each question, so that students can understand the elements and areas that examiners seek to reward.
A former Teacher of English at a Grammar School in Greater Manchester (Year 7-13), with experience teaching the AQA, Edexcel and Pearson I/GCSE specification.
I hold a BA HONS in English Language and a Secondary English PGCE (Outstanding)-both qualifications were obtained at The University of Manchester.
I have a detailed insight and understanding of the educational system, as I am an Examiner for AQA (GCSE English Language) and a Senior Assessor for OCR (A-Level English Language).
Alisha was very quick to assess my son's needs and was able to identify where he needed to improve for his exam. She is a subject expert, taught my son new exam techniques and showed him how to write better answers. She is an absolutely fantastic tutor and I would highly recommend!
Alisha tutored my daughter for her GCSE's and I can say with certainty, that she is absolutely great at what she does. My daughter achieved two grades above her target with Alisha's help. I would highly recommend Alisha as she knows the curriculum inside out and offers her guidance not just as a teacher, but also an examiner, which made a huge difference. She is professional, dedicated and very talented. I will be having Alisha back for my younger one in the future.
