I have completed Keystone’s in-depth 7+/8+ and 11+ training programmes and have a wide range of resources to help students with their studies. I can help students work towards specific exams and goals in addition to providing confidence boosts in subjects and supporting students with their ongoing learning. I am also able to provide Personal Statement Guidance and subject specific expertise in Archaeology, Anthropology, and Museology.
I come from the North East of Scotland and was educated at Robert Gordon’s College in Aberdeen. During my time at there I was awarded A grades in Advanced Higher Latin, Classical Greek, and History and obtained a place at Magdalen College, Oxford where I read Archaeology and Anthropology.
During my time at Oxford University I was president of the University Archaeology Society and course representative. I also assisted with the interviewing process.
I recently completed a Masters in Museums and Heritage at Universiteit Leiden, during which time I co-curated an exhibition on the role of women in the university and assisted with the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden’s Cyprus exhibition.
For the past year I have worked as a cultural journalist and am currently pursuing a PhD in archaeology alongside my tutoring work.
I believe that the best education is one taught with passion. With a brief period as a home-schooled student, I appreciate the importance of adopting a style of teaching which best suits the student. I believe that children can learn best when they are taught with enthusiasm, and that setting clear expectations allows pupils to meet them.
What I do when I am not tutoring
My love of Vermeer was established early, when I was a semi-finalist on BBC Junior Mastermind at the age of ten, with the Dutch artist as my specialist subject. Since then, my interest in art and archaeology has grown, and I have volunteered at a range of museums and archives for almost a decade, including the National Museum of Scotland and the Haarlem Museum of Archaeology where I wrote the city’s first English children’s tour.
I am an active archaeologist, excavating across the UK and Cyprus and am currently working on my doctoral thesis.
''Alice has been a wonderful tutor for our 10 year old twins heading towards their 11+. She has a way of making their tutorial sessions fun but also incredibly helpful. I have noticed a huge increase in their confidence tackling both English and Maths under her care. I could not recommend her highly enough.'' - Mother of 11+ students
