Alex was great at helping our daughter feel confident before and during the 11+ by working on her less strong areas. She was also excellent at supporting the interview prep making sure she had tools to deal with any questions that came up rather than scripting answers. She was notably more confident after speaking to Alex.

Alex's biography

Alexandra undertook a degree in Primary Education at Durham University between 2014 and 2017, graduating with a First Class (Hons). This degree focused upon the learning and application of all primary subjects, as well as additional modules to complete a BA rather than a BEd. As part of the course, Alexandra completed multiple school placements in a variety of different schools and in her final 12 week teaching placement, she was awarded the ‘Outstanding’ level of teaching against the Ofsted Criteria. Since graduating, Alexandra has worked as a governess; working with children educationally to help them reach their future schools. She also undertakes an abundance of private tutoring between the ages of 4 and 13, and has excellent references to support her work. As well as this, Alexandra has experience working 1:1 with children who require special support, both in private households and school settings. She is excited to have the opportunity to work with new students; helping them reach their full potential through fun, engaging and focused learning.
