Alison has been an Italian and French tutor for Northamptonshire Adult Learning for 12 years and is the Italian tutor at a secondary school (a language college) in Northamptonshire. She taught A level French at the former sixth form college in Daventry, Northamptonshire, now part of Northampton College. Alison continues to teach French and Italian lessons, in classes and in one-to-one sessions as a private tutor. Her methods in French and Italian include using exam papers from different exam boards for practice in speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Practice in speaking has given students confidence in approaching the Oral exam at GCSE, AS and A2 levels. Her focus on grammar practice and writing skills has also enabled students to gain A, B and C grades at Wellingborough School, Northampton School for Boys, Campion Bugbrooke, Roade and Sponne School.

She gives English grammar lessons to primary school pupils to enable them to gain higher National Curriculum levels before moving up to secondary education. She has helped GCSE students to exam success by intensive coaching in writing skills combined with literary analysis of media, non-fiction and fiction texts, depending on the requirements of different exam boards. Alison gives English lessons for those needing to improve their basic English speaking and writing skills in order to access college courses.
