Hello I'm Alex - your local Area Advisor and Tutor Manager for Home-School Tutoring West and Central Hampshire, including WINCHESTER, SOUTHAMPTON, EASTLEIGH, CHANDLERS FORD, ROMSEY, STOCKBRIDGE.
I joined Home-School tutoring in June 2011, having been a head teacher in Central London. A decade on, I'm proud of our successes so far.
I love teaching and I continue to tutor alongside running this area. I especially love to see the extra progress in the subject and in confidence, that can be made with 1:1 and small group tutoring. I'm an active member of the PTA and a School Governor at my son’s school. When I am not teaching I love to bake!
I really enjoy the contacts I have with my strong team of tutors and satisfied families in this area. It's a real privilege and joy to run this Home-School Tutoring Hampshire area.
Supportive personal tuition, whatever your need
Our initial consultation is free and without obligation – if you decide to proceed, I will do my best to match you with just the right tutor.
When contacting me, please provide details about the subject(s) required, the level (e.g. the key stage, GCSE, A Level or undergraduate) and any supplementary information, such as special educational needs, dyslexia support or gifted student support.
It helps to give as much detail as you can so I can assess your needs and your specific tutoring requirements and preferences.
Do let me know if your child would be more comfortable with a lady tutor for example, or if they have a strong interest in something that we can use to maximise their engagement in learning quickly!
We have an excellent success rate and our tutors are often asked to return to work with siblings.
I would love to help you with your tutoring requests and I look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes, Alex

Feedback from Parents
"Many thanks for being such an amazing tutor - you have changed lives in such a short space of time. The students think you're fantastic and so do we!" (Parent Feedback)
"Well our letter arrived today and W's just opened it. I'm really happy to tell you he's been offered a place and we are overjoyed! Many thanks for all that you did for W and keeping me calm too throughout the whole process!" (Parent Feedback)
"Thank you so much for getting in touch to ask about E's exam. She was nervous but confident going in. Her first paper went well. She specifically commented that your tutoring had made a huge difference, so thank you again, I wish we had found you sooner." (Parent Feedback)
"Just a quick email to thank you for all you have done – what a difference your tuition has made! His teacher cannot believe the difference in confidence in a few short weeks – he is like a different boy with school now a pleasure!" (Parent Feedback)
"My daughter's confidence in doing maths has been boosted greatly, and she is now starting to believe that she CAN do it. That's with thanks to her patient and understanding maths tutor, who makes it fun and interesting every week.... I have recommended this company to several of my friends and would continue to do so without hesitation."(Parent Feedback)
"The only time my son ever loves doing maths! Thoroughly recommend!!" (Parent Feedback)
"Fantastic personalised service. You really feel Alex has a genuine interest in your child's outcomes!" (Parent Feedback)
"This fabulous company found me the perfect tutor for my son, twice! I cannot recommend them highly enough." (Parent Feedback)
"We engaged a home tutor through Home School Tutoring, to support our son after he had missed work at school due to disruption in his class. The one-on-one tutoring was fundamental to covering the lost ground and rebuilding his confidence. You could see his confidence returning after each session with her." (Parent Feedback)
"Thank you so much for recommending Charlotte to us. S was reluctant and nervous about having a tutor, but since the first session, she's been wishing the days away until the next session. She seems to have turned a corner already – what a difference in confidence, wish we had come to you earlier!" (Parent Feedback)
"L had his entrance exam on Saturday – he was so pleased that he had done the practice interviews and had no nerves! I know we said that we would stop after his exam, but we would like to continue if we can keep the same tutor?" (Parent Feedback)
Feedback from Schools
Crestwood Community School Testimonial (2021):
"The process from the offset has been simple, straight forward, friendly and professional. Initially I sent an enquiry to ascertain whether this would be appropriate for our student and we were able to explore our requirements, and the requirements for the child. The time taken to explore these requirements enabled a match to be made that was appropriate.
From the initial consultation, I was able to discuss our requirements and the individual needs of the child. This enabled a full picture of what support was required, and various tutors and their background and expertise were shortlisted and I felt involved in this process throughout. When we agreed on our tutor, originally for a short period of time, this took place in person. With circumstances resulting in tutoring needing to continue for longer than anticipated, they have been accommodating and professional again and been flexible in accommodating our requirements.
The sessions have been engaging and child centred, taking into account the child's personal interests, and an enriching personalised curriculum has been created. The adaptability demonstrated due to the requirement to move to virtual sessions due to COVID 19 has resulted in continued support for the child which is just as high quality as that which was delivered in person.
I would highly recommend this service. I can not thank them enough for the support provided and there is genuine care conveyed throughout every interaction with our student. Sessions are child centred and for a child who was so disengaged in learning, the expertise, knowledge and understanding that have been provided are second to none. Thank you.

"Firstly can I say how impressed we have been with both the tutors who have worked with our students. All of the students have really benefited, in particular from the encouragement and positive feedback they received. For many of our students this is the much needed boost they need. Hopefully we will have funding next academic year and will be able to use your services again. Once again thank you very much for your excellent service." (Hampshire School)
