TEACHING EXPERIENCE AND APPROACH
Alice has experience in lesson planning and teaching from giving French lessons to primary school classes through a programme organised at her school. She has also helped her younger brother, who is home-schooled, with homework set by his tutors. He has autism and a developmental delay, and assisting him has given Alice the tools to be able to cater for children and young people with varying needs and taught her to adapt in order to engage with different ways of communicating, getting through to students who otherwise may find it difficult to engage with the subject or tutors.
