“I have had the distinct pleasure of seeing my young son learn under the guidance of Alex, a tutor of exceptional ability. Alex's patience is unflinching, navigating curiosity with the skill of a seasoned teacher, while his enthusiasm and passion for his subject is infectious.

Alex is superbly knowledgeable and displays immense dedication to each lesson, tailoring the content to both educate and engage... His kindness and warmth have endeared him to us and his ability to encourage and empathise is genuinely remarkable.

His preparation for each lesson is thorough – crafting exercises around... key interests...This approach has resulted in lessons that are both educational and enjoyable.

Alex's attentiveness is another standout characteristic. He picks up on...moods and adjusts the lesson accordingly, ensuring that learning is never a tedious exercise but an engaging activity.

In Alex, we've found a tutor who makes learning a delight... I wholeheartedly recommend Alex for his exceptional tutoring skills and dedication to teaching.”

Joyful Life Guide life coaching for teachers

Coaching and Learning

Teaching is a mission, and being a teacher is a wonderful job that doesn’t often finish when you leave the school building every day, so it can be difficult to disconnect.

Life coaching offers an incomparable occasion to reflect on yourself as an educator and leader.


Coaching can benefit both young teachers wanting to build a long and satisfying career and experienced teachers willing to refresh their approach to teaching.

Teachers involved in a series of life coaching sessions will acquire a certain level of self-awareness about their role, their approach to teaching, and their being part of a bigger team, in order to prevent stress and promote a healthy work-life balance, satisfaction, and effectiveness.

By the end of the course of coaching sessions, teachers will learn how to set healthy boundaries to cope with overworking, how to regulate emotions, how to use assertiveness to respond properly to colleagues, students, and families’ demands, and how to maximize their strengths in order to improve time management.

This can support with retaining staff and developing a cohesive school community.

Sessions can take place 1:1 in person or online.

I also offer tuition and coaching for select students in person and online in all subjects ages 4-16 within the Early Years Foundation Stage, English Primary School Key Stage 1 and 2 Curriculum, and GCSEs.
