About me

Hello! I am currently an undergraduate studying Geography at the University of Birmingham.

It is unbelievably exciting to be a part of the dynamic and ever changing storyline of Geography. Delving deep into our world’s history makes me question how different our planet could be, especially in the context of crucial issues such as climate change and globalisation.

Hello! I am currently an undergraduate studying Geography at the University of Birmingham.

It is unbelievably exciting to be a part of the dynamic and ever changing storyline of Geography. Delving deep into our world’s history makes me question how different our planet could be, especially in the context of crucial issues such as climate change and globalisation. I am eager to pose questions and challenge key geographical theories and ideas. In addition, I am keen to gather the information needed to make informed predictions and acquire the knowledge needed to enforce sustainable management which is crucial in influencing the next chapter of the world’s geography. I have always had great enthusiasm for geography and I thoroughly enjoyed the GCSE and A Level courses. In turn, I hope you will agree that my passion transfers through to my teaching as I aim to provide engaging and interactive sessions from which you can enjoy seeing yourself progress over the course and then succeed in your exams!

Tutorials will be planned in advance to optimise your learning experience. We will work through the exam syllabus and establish weaker topics that need more focus so you have full understanding of the content needed to answer exam questions. I provide diagrams and clear step-by-step explanations to aid learning in a visual and engaging manner. It is vital students understand the content needed to answer the question but also include the key ideas examiners are looking for. It is often how a student answers the question that enables them to get top marks, however this is typically the most challenging part. Consequently, this will also be a focus of tutorials as we work through the course. I prepare questions and provide personalised feedback and guidance to help students excel in exam situations. Furthermore, we will work through case studies to broaden your knowledge and aid your understanding of the syllabus by applying theories and models to real life examples. These can be embedded in your answers to provide the breadth that will allow you to obtain the highest marks.

I also provide support on writing a successful personal statement. I received offers from all 5 university applications so offer advice on the application process to help you receive your first choice offer.

**please note that due to this busy period, lessons must be booked 48 hours before and refunds can only be given in unforeseen circumstances**

Alicia has been brilliant for my son. He was struggling with Human Geography and needed lots of support and guidance on how what the questions were asking. she also helped him with the whole Geography curriculum. Tutor sessions were planned around what Owen needed on a weekly basis. Alicia was kind and supportive and flexible with tutoring times. She had a miraculous effect on Owens A level grade. I can't thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone needing extra help with Geography.

Alicia was a great help tutoring my son with his GCSE Geography. He found his tutoring sessions with her really help him grasp the subject which gave him the added confidence he needed to get the best possible result. In the end he got a 9 for Geography which wouldn't have been possible if not for Alicia!

I first started having geography tuition with Alicia right before my Y10 end of year exams. I was immediately amazed by Alicia's unique way of teaching. At the time, I struggled with the physical topics. Alicia patiently explained every single part of the topic to me and made sure that i understood everything. She made notes for me during the lessons, found good questions for me to practise during and after the lessons. She honestly is so incredible and amazing. As a result, I got an 8 in my GCSE geography. I honestly can't thank her enough for the effort she put in for me. I would definitely recommend Alicia for anyone who is looking for a geography tutor !!! She is absolutely wonderful !!!

We had another excellent session with Alicia today. It is very clear that Alicia prepared for her sessions that tailored to my son's needs. She analysed the requirement of my son's targeted school exam, and analysed the past papers. During each session Alicia found some suitable questions either for practice during the class or for homework after she has explained the knowledge point. For the homework that my son hasn't got enough time to complete on time, Alicia always followed it through thoroughly and reminded my son. Very responsible and professional. And the most important to me, is that not only my son now is willing to learn geography - a subject that we have nearly lost faith in ourselves, but also my son now is learning the subject with passion. I give my sincere thanks to Alicia for nurturing my son.
