A Little Help From You Goes A Long Way For Them

One of our missions is to support the children in our local communities who have arrived from war torn countries and are relying on local support to change their lives for the better. Children such as those from, Africa, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine and Ukraine deserve to be supported in their education and we want to be able to do that.

You can donate money or pay the tuition fees for them to study at Alpha Tutorials for one academic year. One year’s sponsorship for a child is  £600 for a year to study the core curriculum, once a week for 2 hours in the evening. Not only changing their lives, but their families too.

To Date – We have have received a single donation of £300 to educate the Children of Asylums Seekers and Children of those seeking Refuge in the UK.  We as teachers carry on digging deep into our own pockets to keep our spirits high to help these unfortunate Children.  Thanking a gentleman Mr AB for his kind donation.

My daughter wanted to express her thanks for all of the support with booking her in with her English Exam. She felt reassured and at ease within the exam centre which helped manage her stress. Thank you team Alpha!
Parth
I got into Hull York Medical School on a standard 5 year course thanks to the support of everyone at Alpha. I can not believe that one day I will be able to serve the community as their Doctor. Thank you for giving the Somali community member a chance in life.
Suweyda
I may have disappointed you at the time with my attitude, however as I matured and grew at Alpha Tutorials I realised my own selfishness and importance of my GCSE Maths & English in this country. I can only apologise for my attitude and I'm thankful for all the support Alpha had given despite all the odds.
Riddhi
Thank You very much for giving me the opportunity of studying for my A-Level revision classes and allowing me to sit the external exams. I came to Alpha with no hope, but I have just been accepted to study Physics course at Leicester University. I cannot believe how I was able achieve such high grades. Thank You for patience and understanding.
Aamar
I felt really comfortable sitting exams at Alpha Tutorials. I would not have been able to sit for GCSE's had I been at School due to my anxiety levels and the large sports hall will over 200 student. I was able to perform really well and I would personally like to thank the entire Alpha Team for looking after me whilst I was doing my GCSE exams.
Anon
I was not sure how Alpha was going to be able to help me after spending 2 years at a local Sixth Form College and not achieving the grades I needed to joing a good University. After joining, I realised that how easy my life became. My predicted grades were in place by my tutors, my UCAS reference was written, and infact I am currently studying Software Engineering at Leicester University. This would not have been possible 2 years ago.
Sufyaan
I really wish I had not listened to my daughter and removed her from Alpha Tutorials. She always said that she found things too easy and would prove that she could attain her grades. She was not able to secure any of the A-levels she wanted to do and now her friends have moved onto Universities. Cannot turn the clock back! Wasted a year and opportunity.
Jayaa
Just wanted to say thank you so much to Alpha Tutorials as my daughter got her results today (11th January 2024) for the November 2023 exams in Maths and English. She passed both Maths and English and she could not have done it without the help she received from the Alpha Tutorials Tutors. Thank You so much.
Nikisha's Dad
There is one person at Alpha who did not give up on me. This was now my 4th attempt at passing GCSE Maths and English. I was mis-guided at School by my friends and only wanted to break into professional Football. I took a year out and wasted the whole year. I restarted College with no qualifications and with Entry level type of courses. However, what I needed to progress was GCSE Maths and GCSE English. The two tutors at Alpha Tutorials never gave up on me - even though I was still laid back chap. Today, I am on the verge of going to University. Thank You Alpha!
