Study Bubble is the creation of Alex Newbert, a UK-based teacher, private tutor and mother of three. In addition to teaching upper key stage 2 within the state sector, Alex has run a successful private tuition practice for many years, preparing primary and secondary aged students for exam success. Witnessing the increasing anxiety felt by students, as they progressed through secondary school, Alex felt that more was needed to support students through their adolescent years. Her thoughts turned to creating an accessible, discrete and interactive online platform to help students overcome the stress, anxiety and overwhelm experienced by so many students at secondary school.
Alex loves the outdoors, travelling and exploring the countryside with her family and crazy Labradoodle.
