Alex was an academic scholar at school, before going to Exeter University where he achieved a 2:1 in Politics and an award for his dissertation. From there, he went to the Oxford School of Drama and completed his postgraduate studies in acting. He spent four years as a professional actor, before combining his love of tutoring with a passion for technology. He co-founded an educational podcast company, called Audiopi. His passion for education has continued throughout his career; having spent some time working in Parliament advising the education minister; he now consults on digital transformation projects in the education sector. Alex has eight years tutoring experience, helping students nationally and internationally to achieve top grades. He is a friendly and enthusiastic tutor with excellent results. He also has experience as a residential tutor. Having been awarded an academic scholarship at school, he is well placed to help students who are studying for their school entrance exams – both with exam and interview techniques.
Alex believes one of the many benefits of tutoring is that he can tailor his approach to the student’s needs and learning styles. He aims to not only help students achieve the grades they want, but also encourage a love of learning and curiosity that will, hopefully, stay with them beyond their exams.
Alex will always have a soft spot for the arts and still writes and directs (and occasionally acts in) plays, short stories, podcasts and films. He tries to read a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction, but always seems to come back to dystopian literature. Alex thinks it is important to keep fit, so he regularly plays football, squash and parkrun.
