Hi, I’m Alice. I am a qualified primary teacher with 7 years experience across Key Stage 2, having had my own classes in years 3, 4 and 5. My favourite subjects are maths and art. Having initially struggled with maths myself as a child, I love to work with children to reach that ‘light bulb’ moment and take great pleasure in teaching the strategies. I like to explore the creativity of education with my pupils and help ignite a love of learning.

Last year, I began studying for a postgraduate diploma in child psychotherapy and specialising in play therapy. This new stage in my career combines the nurturing elements of teaching I love with the neuroscience of child development.
I have been tutoring with Tutor Room for nearly a year now and love it! I have taught children from years 3 to 6 and successfully supported those with SEND, children no longer in mainstream education as well as helping prepare year 6 pupils for upcoming SATs. My favourite part of the work is getting to know children 1:1 and spending quality time on their learning together.
I have always seen teaching as a puzzle: the solution is in understanding the working mind of each individual child.
I look forward to meeting you!
