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, vicarious liability, forensic law, general defences, policing law, criminal law, judicial system, human rights, law and morality, equality law, employment law, family law, sources of law and 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 adult learners (19+) who are either progressing on to higher education at University, trainee lawyers studying via the CILEx route or already 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.
Sarah's last completed A Level Law job with Dani: Occasional -
I have been a private tutor with Spires for 2 years, and have had many successful clients who have rated me as excellent, who include: GCSE Law pupils; Cambridge admission pupils (Law); many A-level Politics pupils (both AQA and Edexcel) and clients in a few other subjects. I adapt my tutoring styles to the client, and I make sure that the pupil fully understands the nature of the content and the exam that they are undertaking. My ratings are all 5*, and my pupils have all been satisfied with my service.
I have been tutoring my younger siblings through their GCSEs and AS levels. I helped my sister achieve an A* in her EPQ and I have been worked with her to attain excellence in her A level English Coursework. I was a tutor at my Sixth Form college for English, and I have a spent a lot of time teaching my peers how to get to the next grade in Politics and History. I have led revision classes and seminars in my subjects at school, and I'm very used to working with people who want to achieve their full potential. On Spires I have tutored in English, Politics and Law.
Fraser's last completed A Level Law job with Matthew: 1-2 hrs/week - I want to get an A in Law and I have been preparing for the last year to sit my exams in May. I am primarily seeking guidance with my legal writing. I want a tutor who can tell me where I need to be in terms of essay quality for the a level exams as well as telling me where I am at the moment. I want a responsive tutor who is capable of fulfilling their commitments.
I have various experiences of teaching, coaching, tutoring and generally mentoring others. My most recent experience involved consistently and successfully tutoring an A-level law student, and giving in-depth feedback to multiple different students on their personal statements, as well as offering specific advice on entrance exam and interview technique to students applying to Cambridge. Although these experiences are academic, I also have various experiences of coaching and teaching students on a much broader level. The most significant example of this is coaching junior debaters for two years.
My approach to teaching is extremely individualistic. I appreciate the fact that every student has a different way of learning, whether it be visually, orally or by any other means. So my approach to tutoring is understanding what exactly the student would like to get out of tutoring and the best way to engage in the subject with them. An important part of this, is providing very specific feedback. It is very easy for a tutor to give general feedback on a subject matter. It takes much more for a tutor to tailor their feedback specifically to the individual. I prefer the tailored approach.
I have over 10 year experience in the legal field specialising in all areas of civil law and have provided training to students and colleagues throughout this time.
I understand that the law can be complex, but once broken down and analysed correctly it is surprising simple.
Catherine's last completed A Level Law job with Sreejith: 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with tort and criminal law.
Current Law Undergraduate Tutor at University of Liverpool.
Experience tutoring online and in-person for A-Level / Degree Law, GCSE / A-Level English, & Personal Statements.
I currently teach undergraduate law tutorials on the European Convention on Human Rights in the University of Nottingham's Law School. I also have extensive experience of marking undergraduate essays and am familiar with Undergraduate and Postgraduate grade boundaries.
I have completed numerous courses on the foundations of teaching and learning techniques. I am also working towards my Associate Teachers Programme (ATP) qualification.
I believe that I am patient, friendly and encouraging which allows my students to grow in confidence and reach their potential. I also focus on developing students' analytical and writing skills, as I place great emphasis on structure and clarity of writing.
I have gained my tutoring experience from being a sessional lecturer at the University of Reading where I taught Public Law tutorials to second year undergraduates. I like to interact with my students in order to understand where they're at in their learning. I then deploy various methods to get them to understand the topic at hand, until they do! I use interactive participation and current affairs to illustrate the subject matter and improve learning.
I have a First Class Law degree from the University of Cambridge (coming 6th/222 students in my year and being awarded a number of academic prizes and scholarships). I also completed an Advanced level Spanish course through the University of Cambridge language centre in 2015. I am currently sitting my professional legal qualifications.
I am very friendly and patient in explaining concepts and breaking them down so that they are easier to understand using methods that I used in my own revision. I believe strongly in explaining the ideas behind content so that you can understand and apply it for yourself rather than being lectured on rote content, and believe in setting goals and tracking progress against them to ensure that this is happening.
I'm very flexible on availability and I'm happy to tutor on weekdays or on weekends.
I have tutored previously, both gifted students and those that needed specialist assistance. I understand that sometimes it can be frustrating to not reach your full potential, and I understand the drive to succeed and the level of commitment required to get in to Cambridge.
I am an experienced law tutor and lecturer, with in excess of 10 years experience , predominantly at undergraduate and postgraduate level, both face to face and online, and have taught for 3 leading institutions. I am able to teach all of the compulsory subjects on the qualifying law degree and all subjects on the GDL, the CPA elements of the LPC together with a number of electives. This means that my clients are able to work with me throughout their academic journey, ensuring a consistency in teaching standards.
