Dr Laura Brown set up Cambridge Online Tuition with one goal in mind, to help others learn. Focusing on the core subjects; English, maths & science for ages 6-18.
Laura has a strong scientific background achieving a First Class with Honours Degree in Biological sciences and a PhD in Neuroscience from UCL. She initially started working in a scientific and engineering technology company, but then transitioned to privately tutoring students both face-to-face, online and within schools as this was where she passion lied.
Laura's experience in the field of tutoring taught her many things that she now ensures she and her tutors apply when tutoring:
Every child matters and is unique - Not everyone is a natural learner and everyone learns at different paces. From Laura's own experience of learning, she has worked exceptionally hard to achieve the position of where she is today and it did not come naturally.
Concepts explained from beginning to end - Laura and the other tutors use interactive learning approaches to solidify concepts. In teaching, they very often avoid using large blocks of texts, rather diagrams and visual clips to help portray key concepts. They believe it is fundamental that foundation concepts are well understood before moving onto more complex concepts.
Learning should be fun and interactive - Laura truly believes every child has the ability to achieve their fullest potential, given they are understood and learn in the correct environment. Learning should not be a chore, but enjoyable and interesting. Laura aims to strengthen confidence which often leads to more productive learning.
