Personal Description:

I am a 37 year old graduate Physicist having obtained a First Class degree in Physics with Astrophysics which has given me an excellent understanding of Maths and Science. I have a highly analytical mind and have worked in technical roles including positions as a Technical Manager and Technical Consultant within industry for 10 years. My passion is in teaching and helping others achieve their potential and i am now working full time as a Private Tutor based in Broughton, Brigg, North Lincolnshire.

Tutoring Experience:

I have have successful experience of tutoring GCSE Maths, Physics and Chemistry to students since my time at University.

I have also helped a number of students gain the required GCSE grade in Maths to begin teacher training and nursing.
I am able to relate to people of all ages and have experience of teaching children from 12 years old up to adults.
I am proficient in teaching the requirements for the following exam boards: AQA, Edexcel, OCR and Cambridge (including Edexcel and Cambridge IGCSE).
 

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and methodical person who starts by assessing the understanding and capabilities of the tutee which enables me to develop a bespoke training plan. I believe in teaching and strengthening the fundamental concepts of a subject. I can provide week by week tutoring including early exam preparation and practice. All lessons and homework are prepared in advance. I aim to ensure each student progresses in their chosen subject and achieve results which reflect the best of their ability.
I have an excellent track record for achieving target grades and beyond which is a reflection of the students efforts and my own.

Reviews:

'Lisa was honestly the best tutor! She is a highly knowledgeable teacher of Physics and helped my daughter really understand her subject. She was great at explaining everything. She definitely helped my daughter raise her grade GCSE. I would highly recommend Lisa' From Alghamadi, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Physics)

'Lisa has tutored our daughter for the last two years. When our daughter first began working with Lisa she was working from a below average baseline and had little confidence. What a difference an hour a week with a capable maths tutor makes as our daughter has recently secured a grade B in her GCSE maths -Grade E to Grade B that's some going!! All credit for our daughter's amazing progress goes to Lisa and her patient, friendly, but tenacious teaching style. We are so pleased that we found Lisa, she has been an absolute Godsend! Highly recommended!' From Gail Baker, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Maths)

'Lisa has supported our daughter with Maths throughout year 11. She made her feel she could ask for help as many times as needed and was always patient and supportive. Our daughter has had several 'eureka' moments with Lisa in which she actually truly understood concepts she has struggled with at school. Lisa definitely motivates her students to believe in themselves and encourages them to reach their full potential. We highly recommend working with Lisa.' From Elly Dolan, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Maths)

'Absolutely fantastic tutor. Lisa helped me to get 2 A*'s and an A in Maths and science, which allowed me to get into the college I had applied for. I would definitely recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to achieve the best that they can, at any level.' From Jack Mitchell, Score 5/5, August 2015 (GCSE Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Additional Maths & Further Maths)

'My daughter has been tutored by Lisa for a year now, we are that impressed by her that we hope to continue as my daughter moves into year 10 in preparation for her GCSE. She recently gained an A* for Maths and is growing in confidence all the time thanks to Lisa's professionalism and approach. Lessons are planned to meet individual needs and very well organised. Lisa is very approachable and worth her weight in gold.' From Karen Williamson, Score 5/5, June 2015, (KS3 and GCSE Maths)

'Fantastic tutor. From day one Lisa made my son feel comfortable, enabling him to get the best from the sessions. Thoroughly organised and professional. Lisa is very approachable and lessons are planned to meet individual needs. I will definitely use Lisa again for my son in the near future. Highly recommended.' From Karen Williamson, Score 5/5, June 2015 (KS2 Maths SATS)

'Lisa's way of tutoring is unique, she took time to understand the needs of my son, she designed a plan that worked perfectly for him. It's not a case of one size fits all. Thanks to her my son improved his Maths knowledge and his confidence to the point where he is expected to achieve Level 5 in his SATS exams, and he was chosen to sit also Level 6 SATS (additional). Now she is helping him to get ready for year 7, so we are with her for the long run. And I need to mention that he actually enjoys Maths, it is now an enjoyable subject. Highly recommend, you won't regret it.' From Gloria, Score 5/5 June 2015 (KS2 Maths SATS)

'My daughter has just gained A's in both Physics and Chemistry at GCSE. These are not easy subjects and finding Lisa has made a massive difference. She explains difficult areas and makes the subject become alive and understandable. This has given her confidence and fortunately she covered areas that the school had not and that actually came up in the exam! She has a lovely auora about her and can make anyone feel calm and relaxed and ready to learn. She is a great communicator, organised and efficient and worth her weight in gold! many thanks Lisa', From Tracey Edwards, Score 5/5, August 2014 (GCSE Physics and Chemistry)

'Lisa taught my son and I am so glad I found her. She is highly intelligent and I soon realised my son was in very professional hands which was very comforting as we drove one hour every week sometimes twice a week to get to her. Lisa has a lovely personality and would make anyone feel comfortable the moment you meet her. Her schedule is extremely busy and she is very much in demand. So don't delay if you want to grab a spot in her diary. A very happy family. Worth every penny.' From Yvette, Score 5/5, September 2014 (GCSE Maths, Physics & Chemistry)

'Lisa tutored my daughter, from the first session she installed confidence in Lucy enabling her to believe in herself, she is approachable and extremely professional. My daughter came on in leaps and bounds . Highly recommended.' From Angie Gardner, Score 5/5, August 2014 (GCSE Maths, Physics and Chemistry)

'My son saw improved GCSE results - he got an A* in physics and an A in chemistry having underachieved in his mock exams. He liked Lisa straight away and her teaching had an immediate effect on school tests. He can now go on to sixth form with increased confidence and belief in his own abilities.' From Mrs Rayner, Score 5/5, August 2014 (IGCSE Physics and IGCSE Chemistry)

'I would like to say Lisa is a great private tutor. She has helped my son over the last year achieve a C in maths when his last 2 mock exams were grades D and E. Having the one to one sessions with Lisa really helped my son understand certain parts of maths he was struggling with at school. She was very professional and accommodating when I couldn't make certain appointments. I would like to thank Lisa for everything and say if you are looking for a private tutor then I would highly recommend Lisa.' From Donna Reavey, August 2014 (GCSE Maths)

'With thanks & gratitude for your excellent tutoring, this combined with Imogen's hard work has been reflected in her GCSE results - an 'A' in Mathematics(Higher), 'B' Science & 'C' in Additional Science. This time last year she had really 'lost her way' with her studies but with your personal approach, guidance & support you gave Imogen the renewed interest & confidence to achieve… without hesitation we would recommend you, thank you' From Mrs Bird, **Telephone Number Removed** GCSE Maths, Physics and Chemistry)

'I would definately recommend Lisa as a tutor, she helped me gain a grade A in a-Level Physics. Lisa is extremely good at making the understanding of Physics easier and will happily explain principles thoroughly until you understand. Lisa also provided lots of past exam papers which i found extremely helpful. Lisa is also very easy to get along with and very welcoming.' From Lee **Telephone Number Removed** Lisa coached our grammar school student son during the last two months of his GCSE physics study and made a real improvement to his level of understanding. I know that the tutoring will have definitely improved his grade.

We found her to be polite, understanding and easy to work with. My son felt at ease with her and she was flexible and able to accommodate our needs at short notice. I would definitely recommend her.' From Ian Biddle **Telephone Number Removed** Many thanks to Lisa for working with both my teenage girls who have differing abilites. Lisa was able to identify their individual needs and provide work which supported their learning styles and range of understanding. LG 3.1.12. Score 5/5'
