I am quite unusual as I am a qualified lawyer (I am a Director of a law firm) and also a qualified teacher. I am very proud of my two qualifications and my two graduation photos taken 15 years apart. I wanted to prove to my children that the world is your oyster and to always push yourself. When I am not working I am known as the dog whisperer among my friends as I love to teach my dogs tricks. Having qualified twice myself I have the understanding and empathy for all learners and understand the journey ahead. I am very level headed and calm.
I am a subject specialist being a qualified lawyer with over 20 years experience in civil litigation. I am an experienced tutor/lecturer/assessor in the following areas: wills and probate, inheritance and tax, contract law, law of tort, law of nuisance, forensic law, general defences, criminology, policing law, criminal law, judicial system, human rights, law and morality, equality law, land law, employment law, family law, sources of law as well as all areas on CILEx levels 2, 3 and 6. I give learners appropriate support to enable them to achieve their academic and vocational targets. I have 6 years experience in teaching learners who are either progressing on to higher education at University, trainee lawyers studying via the CILEx route or already studying a law degree at university. I am able to provide 1-1 online sessions in a virtual classroom or alternatively I am happy to prepare a plan for you to answer set work providing you with key information as well as reviewing and appraising any work due for submission. I am also able to set a revision plan and prepare a visual aid for your revision strategy. Being an online tutor is excellent for both of us as we can be in the comfort of our own homes at a mutually convenient time.

Absolutely brilliant Contract Law revision class with Sarah - I'm actually looking forward to taking the exam and putting my knowledge to the test! Thank you so much :)
Brilliant Contract Law revision session with Sarah!
Sarah is fantastic at simplifying confusing legislation.
Informative on tort law concepts and Australian legislation and common law
Sarah is always very prompt in replying and provides excellent feedback. She has been very helpful in all my exam prep, thank you!
thank you Sarah for giving me exam nerves confidence xx couldn't do this without you x
Clear and concise information, delivered at a speed I was comfortable with and in a manner that broke the subject material down into easy to follow segments. Sarah was friendly, sociable and always ensured I was comfortable with and understood the material covered before moving onto the next topic, providing a learning pace that, whilst swift, did not feel frantic and/or difficult to keep up with. The one on one interaction provided excellent opportunities to determine areas I was happy with knowledge wise and areas that need improvement.
today was my first lesson back after a month off, i was reaaly nervous worrying i would be too far behind to sit my exams in june but soon as sarah started our lessons everything came back to me and all the small diagrams and images that sarah had giiven me before came back to me and i understood all we learnt and we managed to finish theft in my criminal law book we only have two small chapters left before we go into workshop revision mode - grateful to have sarah getting me through these exams and calming my nerves x
In this lesson we had a lot of content to cover! Sarah covered all of this content i a way I could understand and in a way I need to for the exam! I haven’t studied this topic in a while so she was super good at recapping :) definitely recommend
Excellent revision class with Sarah covering nuisance, defamation and defences. Sarah narrows the important points in each subject and focuses on exactly what is required to pick up vital points in the exam. We also tackled section A questions and section b questions for each of the above subjects working primarily on how to structure an answer. Sarah is a great tutor and such a lovely person, I am sad that this is my last class with her (all going well with my exams) and I will miss our weekly chats.
Christine - CILEx level 6 learner says... As a mature student returning to my legal studies after a few years, I was looking for a tutor who understood the challenges that I would face in studying while also working full time. I am so happy to have found Sarah, she is an excellent tutor and I always enjoy our lessons. Sarah is always highly prepared for our lessons with excellent slides and she ensures that our lessons meet the Learning Outcomes from my course syllabus. She explains the topic in a way that is accessible, thorough and engaging, so that I gain a genuine understanding of the subject. She also provides me with excellent support in developing my study skills, writing essays, answering exam questions and practically focused on how I would tackle Employment Tribunal Forms. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Sarah on my next modules, and would highly recommend her as a tutor for anyone looking for support with their legal studies.
Anastasia degree level student - I have just finished my MCQ for criminal law I got 73%!! Thank you for your help!!! Thank you!!:) I am so happy.
Lisa studying CILEX - Thank you so much Sarah you really have taken a lot of anxiety away 🙂
Philippa - CILEx learner says... I asked for Sarah’s help after trying to tackle Cilex Level 3 on my own and not succeeding. Myself and Sarah have been working together now for over a year and I can honestly say it’s the best decision I’ve ever made! Sarah is an excellent tutor :) she is very patient and understanding and explains things very thoroughly and answers any questions I have. Sarah was excellent on picking up my weaknesses and helping me work through them. I feel ten times more confident now having her in my corner and wish I had hired her from the start. I look forward to working with her in the future.
