"I have been working with Alex for the past year, studying History for an AQA A Level qualification. Alex is a friendly, approachable and professional teacher. Throughout our lessons we work together to cover different chapters of my history course and set specific tasks which we later go over to assess my progress. Alex is always very flexible and understanding about any changes in availability, and always accommodates to suit my schedule. I have seen massive progression from the start of our tutor lessons, Alex has helped me understand the structures of essays to achieve the best grade possible and also my understanding of the material of the course. Alex has made a big positive impact to my learning and I would recommend him as a tutor to any students needing additional support or private candidates, like myself".
