My tutoring approach
My teaching method focuses on providing a comfortable environment for my students to learn in. I aim to provide various means to get my point across to students, whether it is graphically, exercises or past exam questions, this provides a wider scope of understanding for the student. I am also very interested to know what the topics are being studied at school or University, and support this with exercises and more challenging questions in my lessons. I relish the opportunity to teach and I always motivate and encourage my students to improve further. Having taught students of many age groups and backgrounds, I understand and accept that lessons need to be taught differently to different people. Using the internet as means of conducting my tuition online has allowed for me to reach and educate students from a greater array of educational backgrounds Therefore my adaptability is paramount in order to provide my students a comfortable environment in which to study in.

Have a look at what other people are saying about me...
You can’t go wrong by having Ali. I haven't had numerous lessons with Ali but from what I have had, I can honestly say that he is a great teacher. He will widen your vocabulary and increase your confidence to speak. He structures his lessons very well and to your specific needs. If you’re a beginner, intermediate or an improver, Ali is the teacher for you. Highly recommended.
We have had about 10 lessons with Ali to help us to prepare for our trip to Cuba - we (two of us) didn't speak any Spanish at all, and he has really helped us get the basics so we are now going with confidence. They were excellent lessons starting with basic vocabulary, and moving toward practical role plays for situations that we will find ourselves in. He showed brilliant flexibility in preparing and tailoring the lessons exactly to our needs - and our timetable - and he has been to Cuba too so he gave lots of helpful advice for our trip. He's a lovely guy and the lessons were good fun too.
I highly recommend Ali as a tutor. He has as shown over the years tutoring English and Spanish GCSE to be highly capable dedicated and hard-working when tutoring my son John and my daughter Karen. Thanks to his professionalism my children have achieved both A stars. Ali has had a wonderful rapport with my kids. His talent to make learning enjoyable is something I have always personally admired.
Tom loved his lessons with Ali and we are very grateful that he connected with Tom in the way they did, I will definitely consider Ali for my daughters GCSE exams next year.
I´d like to recommend Mr. Perez. He is an amazing tutor. I met him by
recommendation. Patient and innovative teaching style. Has made a
subject (English) I was dreading, become enjoyable and easy! I
couldn´t recommend him more highly. I am over the moon with the
results. I´m already gaining confidence in speaking English. Ali makes
the lesson very interesting for me unlike the lessons I used to attend
at the ESOL centre.
Absolutely brilliant tutor. Thanks to Ali and his lessons I passed the FCE exam with excellent marks. His teaching style and his preparation is exceptional. He has responded to my specific needs. His lessons are comprehensive and I am amazed at how much is covered within an hour. I would have no reservation in recommending Ali to any student who needs help with English.
