Tutor Profile: Alice Collingworth
Subjects and Levels Taught:

Alice worked in a Montessori nursery for a number of years after graduating in the Southampton area. She wanted to extend her knowledge and draw on the positives of both mainstream education and the Montessori ideas to bring out the best in her pupils/tutees. Alice uses her qualifications and creativity to devise worksheets and games to stimulate and engage the student. This undeniable enthusiasm for her subjects lends a wealth of inspiration and therefore a sense of self belief in her students. Clients have commented on Alice’s sensitivity to the student’s way of thinking and alter the teaching methods accordingly. She has been with us for sixteen months and has successfully helped pupils prepare and pass Entrance examinations to top schools such as Westminster, Eton and St. Paul’s.
Alice volunteers in her spare time with a youth theatre group and has re-discovered her love for the piano and aims to improve her playing.
