Through instilling a deeper understanding of subject matter, I believe any
student can exceed their academic goals and achieve a higher level of
critical thinking. This is the underpinning of any academic venture and starts
at a ‘grass roots’ level. My goal is to guide the student through their course
subjects and supplement their education with a more critical approach to
learning, imparting skills and techniques that I have developed and utilised
myself to achieve the top grades from GCSE right through to degree level.
Furthermore, through online tutoring the student will learn how to interact
and communicate in an online environment. This is an immensely valuable
skill in the increasingly digital post-COVID 19 world we live in.
Well what should you expect from me?
Tutoring up to A level in Maths, Physics, Chemistry. This includes:
- 1:1 teaching and review of classroom topics.
- Assistance with homework, projects and other academic tasks.
- Work to help understand complex subject topics.
- Practise tests to track progress.
- Regular feedback to student on progress & constructive feedback.
- Feedback to parents on how student is getting on.
- Support with university/apprenticeship applications including CV & cover letter drafting.
I am currently in the final year of a Chemical Engineering master’s degree at The University of Sheffield. I
have achieved a first-class grade in the previous 3 years, averaging over 80% for my modules. Prior to that I have also achieved high grades in both A levels, and GCSEs which puts me in a great position to help others do the same! I am incredibly passionate and enthusiastic about my subjects and would relish the opportunity to share what I have learnt with another like-minded student.
In my life away from the books I am a very active person and enjoy socialising particularly in a sporting
setting. I play a lot of rugby and enjoy fitness training and believe these sorts of social interactions, hobbies & interests are crucial not only for personal development, but for revision/learning as well. I would always encourage students to prioritise these elements of their life and teach them how to utilise these as a way of managing academic pressures and stress, particularly in and around exam season.
I can teach maths and chemistry and physics to A level where required, this is charged at £20 per hour. I am also available for university/apprenticeship preparation (cover letters, interview prep etc.) for £14 per hour. Finally, I can tutor KS3/GCSE Maths and Triple Science, charged at £14 per hour.

- Worked in a diverse team, both culturally and academically.
- Experienced team leadership roles.
Graduate Teaching Assistant – The University of Sheffield (Current)
Work within a team of other GTAs to teach younger year students and talk them through fundamental pillars of chemical engineering, including technical principles, ethical case studies within industry, and business relevance.
Perfect! Louis is very friendly and personable, he is patient with his teaching and very helpful when it comes to explaining things in multiple different ways.
Perfect! Louis is an excellent teacher, who makes sure I understand every aspect of a problem/question and also makes sure I am very comfortable with the topic I am studying. He also goes the extra mile by finding appropriate material online and recommends helpful books. Overall a great educator.
