Alexandra Edwards



Science teacher Alexandra Edwards gets advice on improving her presentation techniques from motivation and creativity consultant Richard Gerver.

Richard is impressed by Alexandra's "game show host" approach to teaching but, like all performers, she needs to watch her timing and tempo.

Richard talks to Alexandra about her clothing and the impact this has on her student's perception of her. Later she goes shopping with a leading fashion stylist who gives her tips on suitable work wear.

Finally we hear from Alexandra's students, and see if they like her new approach to lessons and the new style of their teacher.

This is part of a series featuring three secondary teachers from Cheadle High School in Staffordshire, who work with an expert to improve their presentation styles.
