About Alex

Standardised Tests Tutor - Improve Focus and Reading Speed

I help increase reading productivity with such a smooth and simple methodology, that I guarantee that you will be able to read 62%+ faster in just two sessions of two hours, or I will give your money back.

I’ve been teaching Speed Reading for more than thirteen years, and I’ve published a book on the subject.

Fast forward your career or achieve better grades by learning how to blast through your books, documents and social media.

As a young person, I used to read slowly. Because I labeled myself dyslexic, I would avoid reading books. It was on the third year of my Agricultural Engineering degree, that under a lot of pressure to perform I decided to quit my degree for good. My interest in learning only really developed once I learnt how to speed read at the age of 21.

I’ve coached more than 3,600 people how to read faster, including professionals from Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Google, GE, Bloomberg, eBay, O2, KPMG, The Wall Street Journal, The Walt Disney Company, Addeco, Ernst & Young, Home Office, Thomson Reuters, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Lloyds Bank, Citigroup, Sage, Bank of America, PwC and HSBC.

I’m leading a revolution to help people develop their love for reading books. I’m certain that I can unlock the potential of students and professionals to become more focused, and advance in their fields at a greater speed.

I’ve discovered that your brain loves speed and gets bored and distracted if you read slowly and keep skipping back to reread text.

My sessions are bespoke. I use advanced science and psychology to explain the way you read, and how to start reading with a different part of your brain, in order to accelerate your learning style. You can also gain knowledge faster with shortcuts, software, Apps, summaries, video and advanced techniques that will help you learn faster so you can make decisions in half the time with confidence.

P.S. As my availability is constantly changing please arrange a time with me first before booking on the site.

These tutoring sessions are perfect for you if you want to:

- achieve better grades
- get more confident while studying
- be up to date in your area
- gain better qualifications
- reach deadlines on time
- standout amongst your peers
- get a job promotion
- make more money
- read more books
- enjoy more free time

I wish speed reading courses could be made compulsory at every law school and university. I can’t believe learning a few simple reading techniques could have saved me half the anxiety of exams and standardised tests not to mention thousands of pounds spent on testing materials and some law courses. I had started hating reading for pleasure because of the numerous hours I spent on legal reading for work and school. I’d say it is one of the most rewarding amounts I’ve spent on my career! Definitely worth the money.
Flora Mutuku – Law student – BPP Law School

Improved 165%.
The most useful technique I learnt was to look at 2 or 3 points on a line, instead of reading every word individually. It also made me realise that it is better to keep reading, rather than stopping and re-reading all the time. I think the techniques taught are very valuable, and I’ll be able to keep using them and improve.
Emma Gibson – Editor – Sage

Alex is an exceptional tutor. He not only helps you to read and learn faster, but his lessons are also fun and entertaining. My son enjoyed it a lot and just within a 2 hour session, he improves his reading speed by 143%. I recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their reading.
My son feels that his understanding of texts has improved because before he only took in a few pieces of information and didn't understand the book.
