About me

I am in my fourth and last year of Masters of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. I have studied the French Scientific Baccalaureate, which is the equivalent of A levels. I have a good understanding of the requirements A level students have to meet as I have studied the subjects I am tutoring in at univeristy over the past two years and they are taught in the continuity of A levels. Moreover if I am given the topic of a session in advance I will research it to confirm the standard stu...

I am in my fourth and last year of Masters of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. I have studied the French Scientific Baccalaureate, which is the equivalent of A levels. I have a good understanding of the requirements A level students have to meet as I have studied the subjects I am tutoring in at univeristy over the past two years and they are taught in the continuity of A levels. Moreover if I am given the topic of a session in advance I will research it to confirm the standard students have to reach on that topic. 

Over the course of 6 months in 2015 I have developed some experience as a tutor. I tutored students aged 13 to 18, in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, French and Spanish. With about 15 hours of tutoring a week over the span of 6 months I worked with students who had a variety of backgrounds and goals. Meeting with students on a regular basis has enabled me to stucture our sessions to cater for their personal needs and to work towards achieving their goals in the longer run.

I really enjoy finding new approaches and new ways of thinking of a problem to make sure the student not only understands the concept but remembers it and is capable of reformulating it in their own words. I always strive to be patient and listen to the thought-process the student goes through to match their approach with my explanation.

About my sessions

I usually first have a chat with the student and sometimes a parent to see what their situation is and what their goals are. These can be understanding the concepts in a given topic, applying them to problem sets or getting tricks and exam techniques to solve problems more efficiently.

I usually first have a chat with the student and sometimes a parent to see what their situation is and what their goals are. These can be understanding the concepts in a given topic, applying them to problem sets or getting tricks and exam techniques to solve problems more efficiently.

Once I know what the student wants to get out of our sessions I organise them to make sure they can successfully achieve their goals within the timeframe they have. I always try to demystify subjects such as maths that are often seen as abstract and scary by students by providing examples of applications they have in everyday life. Moreover by finding an explanation that matches the student's approach and providing them with easy tricks I try to get them to realise that they are fully capable of solving the questions.

At the end of the day the most enjoyable part of the sessions for me is sharing my passion for the subjects I tutor in and showing everyone that if they are willing to learn they can do it!

I have always struggled with probability especially when it comes to making tree diagrams. However, with her help I was able to understand how to answer them. Thank you very much!

my son recently had his first tutorial with Louise. He was very happy with it as well as the online experience and we look forward to Louise continuing her excellent work. I must also commend Louise on her patience during the initial setup since there was some confusion and a dodgy connections on our side.
