Information about Louise
I am a fully-qualified science teacher with a first-class honours degree in Applied Biology, a PhD in Microbiology and a PGCE specialising in chemistry. I have also worked as a scientist in industry and had my research published in scientific journals. In fact, I am completely bonkers about science.
Availability: I usually teach from 4pm weekdays and at weekends. Please contact me to discuss my current availability.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have an excellent track record in helping pupils fulfil their potential. I have worked as a science teacher and a private tutor, teaching all aspects of science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) at Key stage 3 and 4, including the new 9-1 GCSE triple and combined sciences.
I am used to teaching a wide range of abilities, from those who have an aptitude and want to achieve the highest possible grades, to those who find science difficult. I assess all my pupils and deliver high quality teaching material that match the needs of the individual learner, helping pupils gain the confidence and knowledge to be the best they can be.
My lessons include PowerPoint presentations, videos, demonstrations and practical activities to engage and motivate different types of learners. I provide exam-style questions to show how pupils can score maximum marks under exam conditions. Your child will be able to ask questions as we go along and will be completely supported during the 60-minute session.

Feedback For Louise (20)
Louise tutored my son for GCSE science for several months. Her expertise in this subject and her ability to understand her student`s needs and devise a personalised study plan really enabled my son to grasp topics he found problematic and excel in his studies. We would highly recommend her services.
Louise supported my daughter at biology GCSE. She was excellent at explaining difficult topics and my daughter enjoyed her lessons with her. She was always punctual and reliable. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding tutor. Thank you, Louise!
Louise is an amazing, lovely and well organised tutor, I highly recommend her .
Dr Louise. You are an inspirational teacher. Thank you for your hard work in supporting my daughter. With your support and guidance in the last few months, she developed her knowledge, confidence, and ability in biology and chemistry. You are excellent at your job, and I can see the time and commitment for the lesions. Thank you.
Dr Louise has been amazing with my daughter teaching GCSE Chemistry. She has explained complex things to my daughter in a way that she now understands and has boost her confidence. I would recommend Dr Louise.
Louise is an absolutely fantastic tutor. My son (year 10) was straggling with Chemistry and now (after just 6 lessons with her) he is one of the best in his class, completing class exercises ahead of his peers and becoming increasingly confident after each lesson. I can hardly believe myself how such tremendous change can be achieved in such a short period of time. I am so glad that we found her. I can also see how diligent and thorough she is. She actually sometimes give my son extra time to complete the topic. She always prepares homework as well to consolidate the knowledge. I can honestly say that if you are considering her, please look no further and just go for it, because finding another tutor like her will not be easy.
Excellent teacher with great knowledge
I am extremely happy with the progress my son has made since Louise has been tutoring him. Regular feedback and a fantastic rapport with students. Highly recommended.
Louise is an informative tutor and has helped my son very much with year nine chemistry. Louise explains things very clearly for my son to understand and gives practice questions which help him to put his knowledge to test. Thanks for everything Louise
My daughter only started few weeks ago but has found sessions helpful. Louise goes at a pace that my daughter can understand and always shows good examples.
Louise has been helping me study for my equivalency exam in Biology which will be an IGCSE. She makes the lesson informative/interesting but most of all does it in a way that is fun! I cant recommend her enough.
Louise is an excellent tutor. She is reliable, approachable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My son enjoys learning with her. Highly recommended to all.
My son wanted some extra help with Chemistry and Biology during the last few weeks before his GCSE exams. Finding Dr Louise was an absolute gift. He has thoroughly enjoyed his lessons with her which have been so helpful and inspiring and she has helped him to approach his exams with confidence and clarity. Nothing was too much, she was patient and explained everything in such a concise and clear way that he was not left with any confusion or questions in any areas with which he had previously found more challenging. She was approachable, patient and friendly and clearly enthusiastic in her approach to teaching. I would not hesitate to recommend her. She gets a full 5 stars from us. Thanks Dr Louise.
Louise has really helped my daughter gain confidence in biology in preparation for her GCSEs. She has helped by teaching her to understand how to answer exam-style questions and explains each topic in detail. I would wholeheartedly recommend her for your child.
Louise has been helping my son on the build-up to his mock exams and he`s enjoyed every lesson and has gained more confidence in his subject`s ( biology and chemistry) lessons are well planned and thought out.
Extremely pleased with my son`s progress, he is showing confidence and achieving higher grades in all Sciences, this is all due to Louise`s hard work, support and guidance through tutoring. Louise has a thorough understanding of all Sciences and knows how to get the best out of her students, I am confident with the continued support my son will be a in much stronger position for his final GCSE exams next year. Brilliant work Louise, I am so glad I found you. For people searching for a Science tutor, for me Louise is 5 stars, highly recommend.
Louise is teaching my GCSE year son chemistry, biology and physics. We are delighted to have found a tutor who covers all three of the sciences as it allows flexibility to concentrate on those areas most in need. Louise is patient, clear and friendly in her teaching and my son is already feeling much more confident having missed so much of school due to the lockdown. Teaching materials are clear and easy to navigate and will give my son a revision guide when the time comes. We can`t recommend her highly enough :)
Fantastic teacher, she is tutoring my daughter Biology .My daughter likes her teaching methods a lot and she is very helpful.
I have only started lesson with Louise last month. My daughter is quite happy with the teaching. Looking forward for the end result
Really amazing tutor. My daughter feels very comfortable around Louise and is thoroughly enjoying her sessions.
