I have been teaching in a secondary setting for over 13 years. I have also been an examiner for AQA for 5 years. Over the years, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in applying the skills necessary to achieve in both English language and English literature. I have also worked with the new specifications for AQA and the new WJEC.
All of the students that I have mentored or tutored have passed their examination, with a higher grade than predicted. I have a 100% success rate. I am able to nurture the most reluctant student and encourage them to perform to their best ability.
I was a Head of House in a large High School for many years and I have had experience of juggling work and family life. I am familiar with a range of technology and teaching approaches. I am able to adapt my teaching to suit the needs of the pupils.
Explains things really well which will help my boy along nicely.
Sets tasks and something to practise on at home.
Louise is lovely, encouraging and very knowledgeable! She seems experienced in teaching GCSE students; she gave some pointers on poetic techniques and context, then helped me write a detailed paragraph analyzing a poem. Sadly, the whiteboard and media content functions on the online classroom weren't working properly in our lesson, which was inconvenient and wasted some time.
My son has just finished his second tuition session with Louise and we are both absolutely delighted with her. She is so enthusiastic and easy to get along with, my son actually enjoys the hour of English they spend together. We would highly recommend Louise and tutorful for their professionalism.
After 1 lesson my daughter had so much more confidence. Can't wait to see how she progresses.
