Featured Tutor: Alex
“Hi I’m Alex and I specialise in English Language and Literature, in which I have a First Class BA (Hons) from the University of Oxford. I am passionate about teaching, and the sharing of knowledge, and I try to encourage my students to share in this enjoyment of learning. I teach with sensitivity to each student's needs. My aim is always to help the student find something about the subject which excites them, and allow that to propel them to new heights of thinking. I believe that every student has the potential to achieve beyond their expectations, and in doing that they will begin to take great satisfaction in their studies, and greatly raise their self-esteem and happiness.”
