Alison is an amazing tutor!! Within a span of 2 months my GAMSAT section 2 score improved by 15! She gives very detailed feedback for essays in terms of the wording, content, grammar, sentence structure etc. She also gave example essays/paragraphs/ referred me to other sources all of which were incredibly helpful. I would highly recommend Alison for anyone who is going to sit for the gamsat!!

Alison was incredible in making S2 prep approachable with a great range of resources and a tailored, friendly approach to tutoring. I was given detailed and helpful feedback for essays along with resources and references to make sure my essays were relevant to current issues. There was also the freedom of being able to choose from multiple different writing styles (for all of which she provided excellent examples and mentoring!) which really helped me develop a structure and styles that worked me, as opposed to being forced into one style. Definitely would recommend Alison, especially for first time sitters :)

Alison is a great tutor. She tutored me for Gamsat section 2, thanks to her my overall score increased from 66 to 70. The essay structure that she teaches is simple yet effective, and the skill I developed gave me confidence to tackle topics that I had not encountered before. Also, she kept me accountable if I did not finish the homework, which motivated me to continue writing essays. I'm certain that you won't regret having her as a gamsat tutor.

I only have one word to describe Alison - MAGIC! I had been struggling with S1 of the GAMSAT for ages and never getting a score above ~55 which really brought down my self-esteem as I was improving in the other sections. Within a couple of lessons, Alison was able to help me understand how to tackle the dreaded S1 questions and how to analyze and interpret the texts no matter what they were (poetry, cartoons etc). My S1 score improved to a 63 and I was absolutely delighted with the progress!!! Alison is knowledgeable, kind, patient and understanding and also provides you with some amazing resources. If you're struggling with S1, then look no further than Alison for help :)

Alison is a fantastic tutor! She tutored me for section 2. I improved from 52 to 58 given that we only had few classes in less than a month. English is my second language and she is very approachable in helping non-native speakers. She is also very knowledgeable and provides us with detailed feedbacks on essays. She has a very good understanding on building structures and ideas for GAMSAT essays. I will recommend Alison for anyone who is preparing for GAMSAT!!! Thank you Alison!

Alison is a great tutor! During our lessons, she went through different essay structures I could use, examplar essays, essay feedback and strategies to generate ideas during the exam. Alison has also taught me how to improve my analysis of current and historical affairs and incorporate them into my essays. I would highly recommend Alison as a tutor!

Alison is an amazing section I and section II tutor for the GAMSAT. For section I, she helped me to think and critique the text in the most efficient way possible so that I extract the necessary information without wasting time. For section II, Alison helped me develop a solid structure for both Part A & B, along with brainstorming ideas for many practice prompts. She also gave very detailed feedback on practice essays that I wrote, and provided with small passages that I could possibly incorporate into my writing. Overall, Alison is very kind and understanding, she will always motivate you and give you hope of succeeding.

Alison is an excellent tutor who helped me immensely preparing for the GAMSAT. Through my lessons with Alison, I have improved my essay structure and my ability to formulate sentences in a concise and coherent manner. English is my second language and Alison has tailored her educational approach to improve both my writing and language skills. Thanks to Alison I felt prepared and confident to approach the exam. I highly recommend Alison to anyone studying for the GAMSAT and especially for those whose English is their second language.

Alison is an incredible tutor with an amazing grasp of Section 1 and 2 sections of the GAMSAT. She taught me how to think critically for Section 1 texts as well as apply a structure and flow to my Section 2 essays. She has plenty of resources for your reference and she is always in-touch with the latest news and issues and sharing them with her tutees.

For Section II, she always provided me with detailed feedback and different writing styles that dramatically improved my performances. Overall, she is very supportive and caring. I am very fortunate to have her as my GAMSAT tutor!

Alison is a very skilled tutor. She tutored me for section 1 and section 2, with detailed printed-outs and excellent explanation. Her essay samples are very neat, interesting and fun to read! She is well-organised and can analyse the time very well that you will not waste a minute during the sessions. She is very knowledgeable and has many resources for you to practise your reading and collecting information skills. As she pulled me up my section 2 from 50ish to 60ish in barely two weeks, I can be so sure that you would not regret to have her as your gamsat tutor.
