Information about Louisa
Qualified Teacher of Science, I graduated as an `Outstanding` teacher. I have worked as a tutor for 6 years with a wide range of pupils of different needs.
I have a First Class Honours Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry so am able to help tutor Biology and Chemistry A level and a range of GCSE subjects including Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics and Physics.
I am an experienced scientist having worked in different laboratories including minerals and algal biotechnology. I have an excellent understanding of Biology and Chemistry but also have experience working in industrial and research labs so understand the real-life applications of science which really helps contextualise the subject for my students.
I really like to take science outside of the classroom and love engaging students in a practical way. I LOVE my subject and love discussion in order to further understanding. I think part of my success as a teacher is my enthusiasm and need to have fun. I try to remind my students exactly how exciting science actually is outside of textbooks.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Six years personal tutoring experience and Qualified Teacher of Science, I have worked with a wide range of students from ages 11-21, some who just want to improve, some who are working towards their examination and some with specific learning difficulties. Feel free to message me about any particular needs you have, I am happy to help with everything from revision to just making science a bit more fun!
I enjoy a lot of science outreach having talked at the Eden project, taken part in SoapBox Scientist and talked at local schools and colleges. I also work alongside The Brilliant Club charity to get more pupils interested in higher education.

Lovely kind patient always on time an absolute delight to have help my daughter. A perfect tutor.
Could not recommend Louisa more highly. She is naturally good and engaging as a tutor and our daughter felt very comfortable working with her and enjoyed all her sessions.
Miss Louisa is an amazing tutor. She is has deep knowledge of the subject, uses different strategies for explaining the content, paying attention to exam techniques. My daughter is currently studying for A level Biology on line with Miss Louisa. Hopefully, they will work together up to the final exam. I do highly recommend Miss Louisa as a Biology tutor.
Louisa was fabulous, would highly recommend. Very knowledgeable and professional.
Really helped my daughter with her GCSE chemistry and physics.
Louisa is a excellent tutor, would definitely recommend her.
Louisa is an outstanding tutor, my daughter loves her Biology lessons.
Louisa is a fantastic teacher, she takes the time to find the best method of teaching for the student and you can see the difference it has made for Lewis my son.
Lewis being dyslexic learns differently and Louisa has tailored his studies enabling him work on his strengths and how to improve his weaknesses and you can see in his work and understanding just what a difference she has made.
He is more so more confident and encouragement she gives during the lesson extends on into his school work, who have noticed a difference how he is now approaching problems and the way he answers them.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to any student or parents as she is naturally gifted teacher who you can see loves to teach.
We can to thank her enough!

We have been very pleased with the tutoring and support Louisa has provided for our daughter. She is always punctual and well organised not only has she increased our daughters confidence in both science and maths, but has also been a fantastic mentor.
Louisa was a great success. Always on time or early, cheerful and enthusiastic. A professional attitude and made my sons`s revision fun rather than being something to dread. I would definitely recommend her.
Have only had Louisa once, when she came to us. Good in all respects and the tutee will be happy to continue with her.
I am really pleased with Louisa, she is very reliable, friendly and knows her subject. She never rushes to finish on time and has also provided some very good notes to help my daughter with revision. I would definitely recommend her.
