Instructor Bio


I’m Alison Bolsover, the founder of Jurassic Coast Tutors, I have a PGCE qualification in Secondary Education and a BSc Honours degree in Social Sciences. I have also studied English and History at A Level.


I’m a creative teacher with over twenty years experience of working with young people in secondary education. During that time, I have taught a variety of subjects including English, Maths, History, Sociology, Religious Studies and PSHE.

I have worked as an examiner for AQA, so I am well equipped to support young people in the preparation for their GCSE exams. I have also worked with adult learners on the Access to Higher Education courses, returning to education, and have taught A Level’s at a local college.

Alongside Jurassic Coast Tutor’s, I work with the Local Education Authority to support young people in the community, who are not in full-time education for a variety of reasons, to re-engage with learning, helping them to achieve GCSE qualifications after a prolonged absence from formal education.

I am passionate about learning and about helping young people to be engaged in education so that they can grow in confidence and believe in themselves to achieve their goals, no matter how big or small. My lessons are bespoke and so tailored to meet the needs of the individual. It is never a case of ‘one size fits all’.
