She has taught many different subjects including English, Mathematics and French. Alex’s lessons are always graded good or outstanding and inspectors have frequently commented on the evident happiness in her classroom. Alex believes that creating a cheerful and creative learning environment is the foundation of learning. For Alex, children will never make progress unless they are having fun. She also has a particular passion for the teaching of creative phonics and her year 1 phonics set achieved 100% pass rate in this year’s phonics screening test. Alex has worked with students preparing for entrance exams to Streatham and Clapham High School and Latymer Prep.

She likewise has much experience teaching children on the ASD spectrum and children with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
