Hi there! I'm Louie, a first year undergraduate historian at the University of Cambridge. Throughout my school years, the hardest challenge I faced was expressing my ideas in an uncomplicated manner. Through rigorous tuition from esteemed university professors and school masters at Brighton College, I have learned to break down complex ideas into simple forms. I want to demystify the process of learning and provide kids and teenagers with an easy way into accessing complex material. My 11 A* grades at GCSE along with my 3A* grades at A level in History, Economics and Spanish leave me perfectly equipped to do just this.
I am currently tutoring a GCSE Spanish student in preparation for her summer exams. Mainly, I have aided her in her controlled assessment coursework; in the two assessments I have been involved in two A* grades have been achieved but the ones taken before I was employed resulted in a C and a D grade. My younger brother has also just gone through his GCSE year and I was active in helping him plan answers to History essays and get a strong grip of Spanish Grammar. He gained 10 A* grades; got to give him a bit of credit!
During my time at school and university I have experimented with various different learning styles. Whether it be chanting out vocab whilst marching around the living room, quietly scribbling notes or creating audio files explaining my revision, I've been there. The point is that all children learn differently. My sessions will quickly work out what works for the individual to allow for a streamlined and tailored learning experience.
Most importantly, many students have plenty of academic potential that goes unfulfilled due to a lack of self-confidence. My classes are focussed and engaging but vitally they create a relaxed, informal atmosphere where the pupil is able to develop their ideas with my help. Crucially, this is not just another hour of school! We will progress but we will have fun with it.
