Experienced Tutor in English, Politics, History and Drama

I am a highly experienced English, History, Politics and Drama tutor based in Fulham, London but happy to travel elsewhere. I have had regular students of all ages for the last six years - ranging from ages 5 to 45!

My special focus is essay writing- I believe that proper structuring, analysis and writing techniques will aid all study, no matter the subject. I have a proven track record in quickly improving grades and restoring confidence! I also have been nicknamed the 'Revision Doctor' for helping my students revise efficiently and properly.

I have a Double First-Class degree in English Literature from Trinity College, Dublin and a Minor in English and Drama from the University of California, Berkeley. I am also a professional actress and spent two years training at the Bristol Old Vic Theater School. At GCSE I was in the top-ten UK candidates for Politics and History, I was the Senior Drama Scholar at Woldingham School and won an Exhibition Award to study at Trinity College.

Highly recommended

Alice has been a great help to my daughter who is currently studying A level English Literature. Alice has raised my daughters confidence by organising structured study sessions on a variety of texts. This has been in preparation for her A level English Literature Edexcel Drama and Prose examinations this summer. They have had some lively discussions about these texts, worked on the key themes, essay structure and revision techniques. Alice has been encouraging and amazingly supportive of my daughter. We are so glad we found Alice when she asked us for extra help to back up the lessons she is having at sixth form college. We can't recommend Alice enough!

Alice McCarthy Reference

Alice McCarthy tutored my daughter (another Alice!) in English last year for her A Levels. Aside from being charming and a great tutor in terms of academia she also boosted Alice's confidence. Her grades also went from a predicted D/C to a very high B. We were delighted with her results and with her levels of enthusiasm.

We would highly recommend Alice McCarthy as a tutor to any parent

Outcome:
2 grade increase and lots more confidence and enthusiasm.

Bright, Enthusiastic and Engaging Tutor

Alice tutored my son Zack through his English GCSE. She managed to connect with Zack developing his interest in the subject and improving his grade from a C to an A. Alice’s ability to impart her knowledge and exam techniques in a professional yet warm and engaging manor is very impressive. Her enthusiasm for the subject really seemed to rub off on Zack. Alice has a very positive attitude she is able to recognise a student’s potential as well as weaknesses and uses her lessons not only to impart knowledge but to build self-confidence.

I have no hesitation in recommending Alice as a tutor.

My son gained two grades in English
