About Me

I am a disciplined and hard-working person who is committed to the education and welfare of children. I have experience working with children up to the age of 14 years old.
My communication and management skills are excellent as I can encourage children to achieve their potential by stimulating their imagination and enthusiasm for learning.
I am extremely patient, have the ability to engage pupils through my creativity, commitment and calming temperament.
I plan lessons and activities for children so they can be engaged in the learning process. I strongly believe children need to get a solid education from a young age.
My aim is to help children become confident individuals with a fundamental belief in their abilities.

My Experience

Teaching privately and at schools has given me the opportunity to communicate with a broad range of parents and children effectively. I listen to the child's needs and I talk to the parents regularly to ensure the goals are set appropriately and completed on time.
I make sure the lessons are fun and engaging so the child can feel confident in their knowledge and ability. I like to encourage and motivate them for their future and boost their confidence in trying to do more.
I have over seven years of experience working with children with special educational needs, as well as children with different abilities.
I worked as a primary school teacher in London and I currently tutor children privately supporting them with English, Maths and Handwriting securing their knowledge and working according to the National Curriculum.
I also teach piano and music theory.

Aleks was tasked with bringing my 7 year old up to speed principally with his reading in a very short space of time during the COVID-19 lockdown.
She managed to do that and more. Aleks was able to help my 7 year old with his comprehension when reading and intonation as well as understanding of what he was reading.
She has been patient but mostly encouraging which is key to any child's success.
Thank you Aleks for your time and we shall be in touch again soon to start some more sessions at the start of the new school year.

Response by AlexMira on 27/07/2020:

Thank you for the kind words, Natasha!
It was a pleasure to work with your son in the past months and I look forward to our future lessons.

Aleks' tuition sessions have been invaluable at a time when I am at home supporting two children on my own while schools are closed. I have seen my 5yo daughter progress with her phonics and reading remarkably. Keeping her focused and engaged is something of a challenge, but Aleks' interaction with her has been patient, friendly and encouraging. Aleks provides learning materials and sets appropriate homework tasks that are both fun and educational. Despite only having access to virtual-based lessons at this time, Aleks has built a connection with us and always asks for feedback to ensure that she is helping my daughter learn in the best way for her. If you are looking for a tutor that gets to know your child, is enthusiastic in the delivery of her lessons, and has a genuine care for children and supporting their development, then Aleks is the one.

Thank you, Hannah! It was such pleasure working with your and your son and I hope we can resume the lessons soon!

I have been using Alex's services for two years now and quite honestly it is the best decision that I ever made in helping my daughter overcome her 'fear' of maths! My daughter was in Year 5 when we started and was in the middle set and really struggled. With Alex's help, she absolutely smashed her SAT's and is now in the higher/advanced set for maths in Secondary school. Alex is still tutoring my daughter in maths which she still thoroughly enjoys and Alex is now also tutoring my younger two as well; at the moment it's just their handwriting but I will be extending. Alex's style works very well with my children and they really do enjoy their sessions with her.

Thank you so much!

The beginning of March my husband and I decided to start home schooling our 5 year old daughter. I was concern if I would find someone who would be able to keep our daughter occupied for more than 10 minutes, especially as the lessons have to be online but after speaking to Alex my concerns fed away. Alex is very professional and reliable tutor. Her lessons last for about 30 to 45 minutes and my daughter loves them. She is fun, engaging and makes sure my daughter feels happy and confident in her knowledge at the end of each lesson. I would strongly recommend Alex to anyone who wants their child to have fun while learning and be excited about what is next.
