“My daughter found the transition from GCSE very difficult and especially for History. Louise set a plan of work that dove tailed with the school and helped to develop essay writing skills. My daughters essay grades have improved drastically.”, R.A, 2018

 

 

About My Tuition Services

I am an experienced history tutor at GCSE, A Level and for the International Baccalaureate, having qualified as a teacher in 2000.

Based in Twickenham, my subject specialisms cover the curricula for Waldegrave, Teddington, Orleans and Grey Court schools, as well as for Esher and Richmond College. However, I do travel further afield, particularly Ealing, Ruislip and Kingston.

For both GCSE and A Level, I tutor across the major exam boards; AQA, OCR and Edexcel. I can help students in getting to grips with exam technique, writing essays and in note-taking and research skills. I  set and mark work, set targets and reports and updates to parents and students. Please read more parent feedback at the bottom of the page.

I can travel to students' homes, but also run online tuition through skype , FaceTime and with specialist tutor software. I hold an up-to -date DBS certificate.

The tuition charge is £40 per hour. Please see below for content covered for both GCSE and A Level:
