Information about Louise
I am currently taking bookings for February and March onwards. I can offer tuition by Zoom, and in the future potentially meet you face to face, following social distancing guidelines. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.
I am an experienced professional teacher of A Level History. I also offer coaching for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and for GCSE and IGCSE History. In addition, I coach at undergraduate level.
I am a very experienced senior teacher, having taught for over twenty five years. Most recently I trained teachers at the University of Southampton. Prior to that, I taught A. Level History and Critical Thinking at Barton Peveril (Grade 1) sixth form college. I have worked as an examiner for Edexcel and the International Baccalaureate and therefore have a very good knowledge of how to improve for exam success.
I am experienced in helping students prepare for examinations from GCSE upwards. I begin with an initial assessment of the student`s strengths and weaknesses and will then tailor an individual programme to maximise learning. I will assess and build on core knowledge, offer strategies that aid memory recall and spend focused time on perfecting essay technique and exam strategies. I am very accustomed to helping students with different learning needs such as those with dyslexia and will help students find the most practical and enjoyable way to prepare for course work and exams.
I am patient and easy to get along with. Please get in touch to discuss your needs - I look forward to hearing from you.
Availability: I am flexible.

Feedback For Louise (5)
I find the sessions very helpful indeed. I now have a much more positive outlook on my forthcoming exams and I`ve only had 4 sessions! She tailors the session to what you want to do and is very helpful in managing the amount of content that needs to be covered as well as the stress
We are really pleased that we found Louise. She knows exactly what she is doing, seems to get through a lot of stuff and my son likes working with her. Strongly recommend.
Louise is a fantastic tutor she is very professional, kind and knows how hard to work her pupils. She helped my daughter with her As and her A level History and made the most enormous difference. I can`t recommend her enough. My daughter has said she learnt skills with Louise that she will take with her to university. If your child loves History, call this tutor.
Louise is an exceptional tutor. She is extremely knowledgeable about marking schemes which is vital to gain maximum marks. She taught my daughter for OCR History AS retakes and A2, helping her increase her marks from very disappointing AS grades to achieve an A* at A2. She also helped her prepare for critical thinking LNAT essays.Louise is organised, reliable, patient, kind and reassuring. I would have no hesitation in recommending her. She is a very special find and will help any student reach their potential.
