« Louis really knows his maths and has a knack for passing on his knowledge. He is able see why someone is struggling with a subject and is fantastic at tailoring his explanations accordingly. He has done a great job explaining complex concepts to me and I am confident that he could go the same for you. I thoroughly recommend Louis as a tutor. »

Further Mathematician with great ability to break down and explain difficult topics in an understandable manner

Methodology

I approach complex ideas and problems from their basic foundation blocks, encouraging the student to find ways to work out each step themselves using logic rather than memorising answers or set routes, as I find this leads to much more able and confident students, especially in mathematics.


Experience

I am an engineering student who has done A-levels in Maths, Physics, Further Maths and Chemistry.
I was a tutor on a tutoring program for two years while at school
I have often been told by my students that my ability to help them break down and understand difficult topics that they previously couldn't grasp is very good, and that I am able to get points across in a way their teacher previously wasn't.
