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.
CILEX exam board;
Am based in Australia, and Sarah's classes are still applicable. Very knowledgeable and easygoing. Thank you!
Excellent Contract Law lesson covering misrepresentation and going through exam questions on the topic.
Criminal law today - I feel a lot more confident in my knowledge and things are starting to link together and go hand in hand. Sarah has stayed so patient with me and adapted my lessons to how I learn and got lots of colours, visual aids and diagrams. I also really like our summary questions at the end of a subject area as they really help me to apply my knowledge I've learnt that lesson and helps to digest and remember it. I also enjoy applying my knowledge to scenarios I can familiarise with. Sarah is making learning law that much easier and I don't feel as stressed or a duck out of water with exams literally around the corner... thank you x
Excellent Contract Law lesson with Sarah - covering misrepresentation. Thank you!
started criminal law today - really enjoying it so far
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.
Went over case study 3 of civil lit and always feel better after the class with Sarah’s guidance
I went through case study 2 of Civil Lit level 6 and went through possible questions. Had a great session & now the topic definitely makes more sense :)
Revision session covering topics such as ADR, part 7, multi track and costs. Sarah picks out specific paragraphs in the manual that are relevant to the pre release case study. We also goes through documents from the appendix in the manual to prepare you for a drafting exercise in the exam which I have found to be an excellent tool for revision.
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.
