About me

Hello! I’m Louise.


I've been a tutor on MyTutor for three years now; when I began tutoring here, I had just finished my MA in 'Medieval and Renaissance Literary Studies', and now I have a PhD in English. In that time, I've become an expert in a Renaissance literature, and tutored numerous students through their early years of secondary education, GCSEs, and A-Levels.

About my sessions

Every session is tailored to each student's needs and interests. I take the time to get to know the students that I'm tutoring, and I plan lessons which address the areas they need support in through subjects which they have an interest in. I've taught grammar through lessons about football or aliens; it might sound unconventional, but I find it really helps the students to engage with the content of tutorials, and more crucially, retain it.

I give parents frequent updates on their child's progress. After every lesson, I message parents with a short summary of the topic(s) covered during tutorials, and how their child responded to them. I also encourage parents to keep me informed about any areas which they or the school feel that their child will benefit from covering.


I'm enthusiastic! Several of my students have come to me with a deep hatred of English, and have left me full of enjoyment for the subject. I maintain a positive, supportive, enthusiastic attitude throughout tutorials because I adore my subject, and I want my students to enjoy it too!

My daughter started having sessions with Louise after her GCSE mocks in January where she got a 6 in both English Language and Literature. She didn't enjoy English at all. She ended up getting a 9 in English Language and a 7 in Literature. She was so surprised that we had to doublecheck them! This is down to Louise, who was well prepared, patient, encouraging and most importantly motivated my daughter to try! Thank you so much Louise!

There is no way to thank Louise for how she has helped me these last 4 and a half months. I've seen such a difference in my confidence and just general attitude to my subjects. She is a wonderful tutor, you wouldn't regret choosing her :)))

If you're looking for a wonderful, supportive and sweet person to tutor you or your children, you'll never find anyone better than Louise. Her knowledge and encouraging nature makes me want to try my best in everything I do. So glad I've had the pleasure of discussing English A level with her for the last 4 months. She's the best :)))
