LOWRI AMIES TUITION (MA CANTAB)
Highly experienced tutor of French, Spanish and English at all levels.
Described in the Varsity Top 100 (a compilation of ‘the most talented, influential and hard-working students at Cambridge’) as ‘one of the friendliest faces in the university’, I am unfailingly enthusiastic and dedicated. What's more, with 13 years' experience, I get results.
Please see the testimonials below which attest to my work ethic and my conscientious approach to every single pupil.
It's never too early to start investing in your child's education. Whether it be getting ready for the 11 plus, or thinking ahead to GCSE, linguistic skills are cumulative. The foundations of structured responses to English questions are best laid early; language embeds itself best at a young age. Start getting ready for your child's exams now!
GCSE AND A LEVEL
With so much experience in every exam board, targeted help where it is most needed is the best way to improve your child's grade. Known in the industry as a 'turn-around specialist', I can give students the boost they need.
From the first point of contact with Lowri we knew she was the perfect fit to help our daughter prepare for her Cambridge entrance. She has been very organised and efficient from the outset and a huge source of support for both our daughter and ourselves. Probably most importantly she is a superb teacher and has a very engaging manner. She gave very detailed and excellent feedback in the reports and was very happy to give us verbal feedback which was particularly helpful as our daughter was living abroad at the time. Our only regret is that we didn’t find her sooner to help with the personal statement and choice of college. Whatever the outcome of the interview/ exam we know our daughter could not have been better prepared. Overall I don’t think it would be possible to find a more excellent and lovelier tutor- thank you Lowri.

Lowri Amies single-handedly taught my son for A level French via Skype and in person; he had been forecast an A at best. She got him an A star. She is not just a very nice person but highly organised and pragmatic. She knows the grade is everything, and her lessons are channeled towards that goal. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone.

From the moment we met Lowri, we knew she would help our daughter achieve the desire of her heart. She went above and beyond to teach with passion, commitment and excellence. She brought out excitement for learning and brilliance within such a short time in our daughter, so much so that her teacher in school who had predicted her a low grade sent out a mail to attest to the remarkable improvement after just a few weeks of her initial assessment. She made an A grade! Lowri's methods and passion for teaching are next to none. Thank you so much Lowri.

Lowri tutored our daughter Ruby and we just loved her. She was amazing with Ruby and her tutoring skills showed in Ruby's results. The lessons were interesting and Ruby looked forward to it every week. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Lowri - she is a wonderful girl and it was a pleasure to have her in our home.

We are very grateful to Lowri for her French tuition for both A level and GCSE. She has excelled at guiding both my son and daughter with a fine balance of encouragement, support, teaching resources and techniques to improve their grades and give them the confidence to sit their exams worry free.

Lowri helped me to achieve an A* at A Level when I had been predicted to get a B. I left school in my final year and Lowri home-schooled me as my sole French teacher. She was extremely determined throughout the year, making sure that I did the best I could in tests and homework each week. Her feedback in a report each lesson was also very helpful for me to solve my common mistakes. Lowri’s knowledge of the texts and ability to shortcut what most tutors might not be able to when faced with a new curriculum is ultimately why I would recommend her to any other person in need of great results.

Lowri has been helping my 15 and 11 year-olds for over two years in French, Drama, English and Spanish. Both look forward to seeing her and enjoy their one-on-one time with her. She manages to inspire and encourage both on different levels. My eldest is preparing for GCSE and my daughter has just successfully gained entry to her first choice secondary school (Francis Holland) with Lowri’s help. I would certainly recommend Lowri whose patience and enthusiasm both encourages learning and makes the hour spent with her both productive and interesting. For what it’s worth, my son is a scientist and mathematician but with help from Lowri discovered a love of literature and theatre.

Lowri is an amazing French tutor. She is organised, professional and made a real connection - resulting in a GCSE A* grade. I would highly recommend her.
- Lisa Powell
I have seen Lowri with her students with whom she has an excellent rapport. She also has a lovely way of encouraging her clients to reach their full potential. Lowri is conscientious in her preparation, marking and in meeting individual needs. She knows her subjects really well and adapts her teaching to age, level and students' preferred learning styles. I would thoroughly recommend her.
- David John (teacher)
Amazing tutor. Very encouraging and positive. She helped me throughout the 2 years of tutoring to achieve an amazing grade I would not have been capable of receiving without her help! I really recommend Lowri!
- Talia Bharwani
I cannot recommend Lowri highly enough as a tutor. As well as her startling academic credentials from the University of Cambridge, Lowri knows how to adapt her style to meet the needs of specific students and specific exams. I believe it is Lowri’s ability to tailor her lessons to the needs of each student, and the real care that goes into her teaching, that has such an obvious impact on students, often in quite short periods of time. I should add that she’s also just a lovely person!
