ABOUT ALEX

In 2006, I graduated with a 2.1 in Linguistics and Phonetics. Then, I qualified with a PGCE in Secondary English (Outstanding Teacher Practice and Distinction).


After seven years of teaching lessons rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED, in 2016, ambitions shifted to combining professional growth with personal development. I wanted to learn more about teaching and education on a global scale. This led to establishing a self-employed business formed of multiple roles that combine my passion for helping provide education for all with using my linguistic skills.  

With freedom over my professional development, I have particularly specialised in pedagogy, SDG4, learning poverty, assessment, digital and writing skills. 

Now, I work hard to apply managerial, entrepreneurial skills to my remote self-employed business that works with people all across the world. My career is based on being open-minded to opportunities, especially those that use technology to improve learning outcomes.

I am proud of my fearless nature of accepting, embracing and rising to challenges.

Alex is one of the most reliable and professional people I have worked with - when she says she is going to do something, it gets done, and to a high standard, which makes working with her a joy! She works well in a team, listening to and suggesting new ideas or a change of direction, and is also highly efficient when working independently. Her years of experience as a teacher and tutor are clear to see when discussing education, yet she is always ready to learn and develop her skillset further. I was lucky to both work with, and learn from, Alex, and hope to do so again!
