***11+ Subject: Having successfully tutored my son 11 Plus exams for Tiffin Schооl, I decided to teach other students in prepаrаtiоn for Grammar Schооl/Independent Schооls entrance exams and have great success since. I cоаch specific techniques, short cuts and tips which enable students to gain competitive аdvаntаges, to be ahead of the games.
I am able to assist Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning for the "Wansworth Year 6 Tests".
For group lesson it is £35 per hour, for One to one lesson it is £55 per hour.
I cover 11+ VR, 11+ NVR, 11+ English and 11+ Maths subjects.
***11+ Verbal Reasoning (VR) is problem solving using vocabulary, language and mathematical skills. I coach students how to complete sequence, work out numerical codes, logical reasoning, mathematical reasoning, alphabet reasoning, word codes, patterns, anagram and coded sequences etc. My tuition helps developing students word power, vocabulary range and reasoning skills.
***11+ Non Verbal Reasoning (NVR) is solving problems by patterns and shapes. I emphasize tackling questions on analogies, codes, similarities, series, components, patters, layering, movements, manipulations, odd one out, matrices, elements and logic etc. There are about 21 types of question set by GL Assessment, e.g. identifying or rotating the missing coded shapes etc. Strategies of ensuring students to master techniques thoroughly to a high level are implemented. My students will be able to think on feet and to solve problems in logic ways.
***11+ English: I prepare students for their Comprehension and Creative Writing skills, including story ideas, structure, dialogues, endings, character development, literary knowledge, vocabulary, sentence structure, spelling, grammar and punctuation.
***11+ Maths: Apart from training mental arithmetic and core maths skills, I ensure students not to get bored with numbers and formulas by introducing an element of fun into lessons, e.g. playing maths games, puzzles at the end of the session.
****Maths subjects(KS2, KS3, GCSE, A Level): Familiar with the National Curriculum, I stretch students abilities and potentials. GCSE and A level Maths students have improved their grades and confidence following my tuition. I have proven records of raising Grade E to C, Grade D to B and Grade C to A Star.
****QTS Numeracy Skills Test: Focusing on practices of Mental Arithmetic and interpreting statistical information, I am experienced in helping candidates to pass their QTS Numeracy Skills Tests. My Speed Methods of calculation enable candidates to solve Mental Maths questions against limited time; accuracy and speed coming hand in hand. In addition, I teach Interpretation of Graphs and Data, helping candidates to identify trends and patterns; interpret statistical information; make comparison and draw conclusions when answering multi-stage questions.
I help students to make notes; look out for key phrases; draw on the graphs; identify students common mistakes.
A basic spoon feeding style makes my tutees understand the techniques easily and quickly. They soon become competent and pass their QTS Numeracy Skills Tests easily after my effective coaching.
****Mandarin Chinese: HSK Exams. I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker, very experienced in tutoring for children and adults at all levels whether it is for business, exams, travel or leisure. Familiar with the required syllabus and criteria, Im efficient to prepare GCSE, IGCSE, IB, A Level and University Degree Chinese exams. HSK.YCT.

I helped university students Mandarin Grade from Fail to 2:1, tackling four areas of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening skills improvement.

I am able to assist students in building their confidence, reaching their full potentials and stretching their abilities whilst maintaining high academic performances.

Her experience shines through, having prepared so many children for the Tiffin exam, she knows exactly what level needs to be reached and how to get there.
But beyond the academic, it is clear that she really cares that all his hard work will pay off for him, and offers support and encouragement in equal measure.
From a parent's point of view, she has also been great at giving us feedback on how he's doing and what needs extra work, plus extremely flexible with timings despite her very busy schedule.
She has really boosted my daughter's confidence and helped develop her skills and drills. Would definitely recommend approaching her!
Update: My daughter got accepted to Tiffin which shows what an absolutely fabulous job Louisa does. She really is first class and we unstintingly recommend her! Awesome job Louisa!
Louisa is a fantastic teacher. She's always very punctual, nice and friendly and she has tutored my daughter on all components (English, Verbal, NVR & Maths) of the 11+ exams for Bucks, Slough Consortium and Tiffins.
I am proud to say that thanks to Louisa’s tutoring, my daughter has passed Bucks & Slough Consortium exams with very high scores. I am also delighted to add here that she has also passed Tiffins Stage 1 and has been invited to Tiffins Stage 2 exams. When I contacted Louisa to seek her help with stage 2 preparation, she was so forthcoming that she emailed my very good preparation material for Stage 2 the same night…she truly is very concerned about the child’s progress and really goes out of the way to help them.
She is enthusiastic, friendly and a supportive tutor who believes that every child has the potential to improve their ability.
Many thanks Louisa for your kind support.
Mar17: Just wanted to recognise Louisa's efforts with preparation of my daughter for Tiffin Second Stage exams and I feel proud to add here that my daughter has been offered a place in Tiffin Girls School. Thanks again Louisa for all your help and guidance with creative writing… it helped her so much.
Looking forward to seeing lots more progress.
I highly recommend her specially for exams and if your child needs quick confidence.
Thanks so much Louisa
Thank you Louisa!
Jean, Simon, Sam and Olivia
I just want to give you a massive personal thank you - My husband and I feel so lucky to have found you - we appreciate the support you give Sam (and us) in helping Sam prepare for his 11+ exam. Sam is really thriving from working with you and likes you very much!
I just wanted to share the feedback I got from Sam as I believe this is amazing recognition from your student :-). After your first 1.5hr lesson Sam said "I have learnt more today than I ever did before!". "Louisa explains things easily and I get it by the end of the lesson". "She is really nice - I like her!"
Only a month on and we can already see the improvement in Sam's confidence and ability! We really appreciate you and hope you are enjoying supporting Sam. Thank you so much!, Jean, Simon, Sam &Olivia
He has learnt so much that he is in the top groups at school for reading, English and maths. His maths needed improving and the results have come through in such a short space of time.
Thank you and I would recommend you to other parents.
I am so glad to have had Louisa for my daughter, she has been a great help!
