The Good Schools Guide review of Ivy Education

Alastair Delafield, thirties, educated at St Edward's School, Oxford and Bristol University, where he read Geoscience before doing a PGCE at Bath. Taught science at Dulwich Prep London and Thomas's Clapham, after turning down the offer of Head of Science at Thomas’s Kensington 'because I liked teaching years 7 and 8 and I wouldn't have got to do so much of it'. Decided to do his own thing instead, and set up Ivy Tutors in 2010, where he still finds time to tutor in maths and science at KS2/3. Slightly grizzled, highly personable and empathetic, parents rave about him.
