About me

As someone who has always had a passion for learning, I have thoroughly enjoyed tutoring ever since I started when I was 16. I tutor many students aged between 4 and 18 who have different learning styles and needs, such as explaining content, past paper questions, and exam technique. It is incredibly rewarding to see students develop and successfully meet their targets throughout the sessions.

As someone who has always had a passion for learning, I have thoroughly enjoyed tutoring ever since I started when I was 16. I tutor many students aged between 4 and 18 who have different learning styles and needs, such as explaining content, past paper questions, and exam technique. It is incredibly rewarding to see students develop and successfully meet their targets throughout the sessions. Through tutoring, I have learned invaluable communication skills and I am now confident at explaining what seem like daunting problems in simple ways, as well as thinking of alternative explanation methods.


I have always had a keen interest in the world around me and loved Economics from my first Sixth Form lesson. I have never been afraid to ask questions or read around a topic, something which I have continued into university life, and I think that this enthusiasm makes Economics my ideal subject to teach. Along with the analytical skills which Economics provides, I am also confident teaching Maths up to Standard Level IB (AS level), and even managed to attain 100% in my Maths GCSE and a 7 in IB SL Maths.

About my sessions

Before each Online Lesson, I intend to familiarise myself with the chosen topic and prepare lesson material, such as fun exercises which make learning seem less daunting. I will ask the students what they would like to get out of the sessions and if they have any ideas of how to achieve those goals, and then feed back my own thoughts. I will try to recap previous questions in sessions in order to see how the students are developing.

I think it is incredibly important to encourage learning because good students are nurtured by good teachers. In my view, it is difficult to connect with a subject and want to learn when faced with a teacher who has no passion for their subject. Therefore, I will bring energy and enthusiasm to each Online Lesson in order that the student can get the most out of it.

Alice is an excellent tutor and also very reliable. She is organized and always sends her schedule ahead of time so we can plan better. I would highly recommend her.

Alice has been working with my son on Economics and he has a much better understanding of the concepts and is gaining more confidence in his problem solving.

She is really accommodating to your skill level, and explains things concisely. I really appreciate how she is able to go over basic things again further into a syllabus and in general it was quite helpful.
