Information about Louise
I am an extremely diligent and professional tutor, with a real focus on helping students to understand the subject and to learn the requisite skills needed for exams and coursework. Having tutored in both, I have up-to-date knowledge of the new demands for A Level since 2015 and a very sound understanding of the expectations of the new 9-1 GCSE. I have experience of all the examination boards for both GCSE and A Level and use the exam board materials and advice and incorporate these into my practice. In addition to this, I have also tutored for the International Baccalaureate. In terms of subject knowledge, I have taught most of the subjects offered in course units, from early modern to the twentieth century.
2019 A level results: 50% A*-A; 72% A*-C.
I realise that history as a subject isn`t always easy, and I provide handouts and other resources where necessary. I advise students on books to read to enhance their subject knowledge and encourage students to listen to podcasts and watch documentaries to help their understanding.
Most importantly, I love my subject. I can inject enthusiasm into the driest of topics and have a good sense of humour. I am patient and flexible and am happy to review and mark work when required.
Availability: weekdays In the daytime and evenings
Willing to travel: 2 miles
Experience: Since qualifying as a teacher 20 years ago, I have gained a good deal of experience in helping students of all abilities to achieve a grade of which they can be proud. I have a good track record of helping to raise grades and the confidence of my students. I work well with both tutees and parents alike, forging good working relationships with both and I give effective target-driven feedback.
I am an experienced teacher and tutor and I also run my own adult education business.
Feedback For Louise (34)
Great tutor who has provided my daughter with a high level of teaching in A level History . She has really enabled her to keep on top of her subject during the lockdown period . Highly recommend Louise as a tutor .
She`s been great with essay practice, teaching the content in more depth and deepening contextual knowledge.
Louise is an excellent tutor. She always provides the best resources, is great at summarising content and has helped my exam technique skyrocket!! Managed to get an A in my recent mock because of her help. 👍;
Louise thoroughly explains each topic she covers and is brilliant at responding to questions about my A-level course. She is always prompt to each session and uses an interactive teaching style to engage me with the material. Louise is amazing at breaking down complicated events, in addition to giving detail beyond what is taught at school. I have no hesitation at recommending Louise as a tutor. She is superb!
Louise is an excellent tutor, patient and knowledgeable, and is helping my daughter a great deal in her A levels
Louise was a great teacher. She`s been always friendly and prepared for the lesson. Thank you once more
Louise is a lovely tutor. She is kind and patient too :-). We had issues with the internet connection but Louise was inflappable and made sure the lesson time was completed. The best thing about Louise is that she is very professional and knows her subject very well. My nephews`s confidence has improved so much since he started lessons with her a couple of months ago. She is a gem! Use her! Rose
Louise has made a difference to my daughter after only a couple of sessions. Her communication is excellent and she was very well prepared for the lessons. As my daughter put it - she "really knows her stuff!". During the corona virus outbreak Louise has been in touch and offered online support which is working well. She has also provided my daughter with useful supportive material. A highly recommended tutor.
Both my son and daughter have enjoyed their A level history tutoring with Louise and found it very useful.
Louise taught my daughter A level history over half term in preparation for exams in May/June and the insight she provided was a real confidence booster. She knew what resource material to provide for problem areas and explained techniques on how to answer exam questions. Louise is a great tutor. She is calm, sometimes lively and punctual for all her lessons.
Excellent tutor. My daughter is doing history A level and she really enjoys her tutoring with Louise. She makes the subject really interesting. I have no hesitation in recommending Louise.
Louise is absolutely professional and excellent!!!
Have only had a handful of sessions with Louise, which is why I cannot give a full 5 stars yet. So far Louise has been very helpful in guiding my son towards his A level exams. The proof will be in his mock exams! However, Lousie is a lovely person and my son gets on well with her and finds her helpful in his subject.
Louise is fantastic!
Louise has been tutoring my son during his last year of Alevels and what a difference it has made! Louise is very professional, has a great depth of knowledge and is a fantastic tutor. There was an instant rapport from the start and my son felt very at ease with her which made the lessons highly productive. He not only improved academically but gained confidence too. We would highly recommend Louise. Thank you!
Louise has made a tremendous difference to our daughter. She had supported and motivated her during the year and helped greatly. Our daughter has since worked hard and was enjoying the work and her confidence was steadily increasing. Louise was therefore instrumental when our daughter achieved her A in history.
Amazing tutor and easy to work with. Provided amazing essay techniques and pushed me to reach my full potential. Without her help I would not have been as confident as I was for my A Level history exams.
Excellent tutor with a lovely manner.
We would like to say a big thank you! Louise is a very professional tutor and a nice person to deal with. Our son was preparing for Winchester College entrance exams and he needed some help particularly with revision in History. Even though Louise didnt know much about the expectations of the school, and moreover we had just 2 weeks for preparation, she did her best with teaching our son. As a result that came out as a success! Our son was offered a place and we cant be more happier!
I would recommend her with no hesitation!
Really organised, very approachable, really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. A gem of a find, my son is throroughly enjoying his A level tutorials.
Louise has been really great for our son`s History A level. She has been able to give him a better understanding of the topics as well as going out of her way to provide him with tips on how to deal with particular questions (and dropping off books that could help him!). We have no hesitation in recommending Louise.
Apart from being very accommodating with timings, punctual etc, Louise really brought the topics alive that my daughter had been struggling with. She provided extra resources for my daughter to use, and really taught around the subject, making it more interesting. She was also able to give good insight as to the level my daughter was working at which was very useful. Louise is also a really fun, lively and lovely lady - I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend her. My husband who was occasionally sat in the other room, also enjoyed the lessons! Great teacher. :)
Very efficient and knowledgable. My son can really work well with her.
My daughter has been working with Louise for the last 9 months in preparation for her A level. Louise immediately understood what was required and struck up a brilliant working relationship with my daughter. She was able to support not only in the exam subjects but also in the coursework, going out of her way to provide additional resources when required. She was very flexible and found ways of getting my daughter to think around and delve deeper into the topics. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Outstanding - Louise was very quick to contact me back initially, flexible with timings, easy to deal with, and really helped my daughter prepare for her history GCSE. Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend Louise as a tutor. Her lessons were always interesting and well prepared and helped my son enormously to get back on track with his History AS level.
Louise understood immediately what my son needed to support him with his history A level. Niall really enjoys working with her and has made fabulous progress. Louise is pragmatic, flexible and diligent. She has been and continues to be a delight to work with.
Louise has been excellent.
She is very organised , enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
She is very engaging and professional in her approach.
We are delighted to have found her !
Lousie is amazing, my son needed a boost and Louise was definitely the person to give it to him. She is enthusiastic, she makes history fun and she gives him homework, which he actually enjoys doing. I now have faith that he will do really well in History and it is down to Louise. If anyone is looking for a tutor, she is totally your lady.
Louise was contacted rather late on in my sons A-level exam preparation. She was enthusiastic and helped him with organisation, clarification and essay technique. I would recommend her highly.
Louise was very good and helped my son tremendously in his History GCSE. She has indepth knowledge and experience.
Louise taught my son AS level history. She is an excellent teacher, friendly, patient and passionate about the subject. My son enjoyed her lessons and found her enthusiasm very motivating. I know my son has had the best possible help in preparing for his AS level exam. Thank you Louise for your help and encouragement and patience.
