I am a very long-standing, established English tutor in the West Lothian area, having tutored Secondary and Primary pupils, and some University clients, for over 12 years. I tutor on a part-time basis whilst working as a Senior Manager in Local Government, and am currently setting up my own company with the view to tutoring full-time in the next few years. I have a PROVEN track record of success and can provide many references. I have always excelled in all aspects of English; after undertaking English Literature at Strathclyde University, I chose to study an M.A. in Sociology, achieving a high 2:1, prior to completing a Post-Graduate Diploma. I then joined Local Government, going on to achieve the highest level of CMI qualification in Management and Leadership. I am highly educated, bringing a wide knowledge base to my approach, in the firm belief that those who excel in English must be able to also demonstrate an open mind, and a wider understanding of the world around them, to impress markers and stand above their peers! My pupils in 2016 all achieved grades A or B and as well as being a private tutor, I am employed by Kip McGrath Education Centres, a centre of excellence. I am a highly interpersonal, approachable, empathetic individual who will set the bar high and bring out the very best in my pupils.

Nat 5 English Tutor

Alison managed to turn our daughter from just scraping a pass in her prelim Nat 5 English, to an A in her Nat 5. This was in the space of 3 months, fortnightly lessons.
Alison has a wonderful manner and our daughter felt really comfortable with her, the one to one time really allowed our daughter to understand the course work.
