I'm Amba. I am a mum to an 8-year-old boy, a lawyer and a law tutor!
I have been in practice for 13 years and counting across many disciplines. I currently work in Conveyancing.
Here's a cringy video of me introducing myself - https://youtu.be/WBsRWiPNe9A
I have been tutoring students across all disciplines of law and differing levels; A-Level, CILEX, LLB, LLM, LPC and GDL and now the SQE. I can offer other subjects which are listed on my profile as I have experience within these. I am, however, focusing on Law Tutoring but feel free to contact me to discuss your needs and my availability.
I have successfully tutored over 500 students (many repeats) across different platforms and privately for over two years. The Pandemic hit us students hard ( I also took LPC exams during this time), and now I am studying for my second masters through online distance learning. It changed our learning styles, and the way exams are taken – for some, this was better, and for others, it was more difficult.
I have also been accepted to become a contract lecturer for the Open University. I am also currently undertaking the process of potentially teaching the SQE from January 2022 from a University provider. I will update if this becomes the case. I will also be available to tutor for the SQE from January 2022. I currently do not have any students undertaking this, with all starting in January. However, if you need assistance with this now, I can help as I piloted it with the SRA.
As a result of the Pandemic, I now only offer online lessons.
I carry out a trial lesson with every student before working for them (save for offline proofreading work). To ensure the boundaries are set, I get to know more about you and you, me. It also means I can discuss your needs and tailor a plan with you. One size doesn't fit all, and you cant ask a goldfish to climb a tree. I want to make sure we work well together and ensure we get along. If we don't, then the reality is that you won't learn or engage with our lessons.
I will help you learn by applying the law to real case studies instead of "throwing a load of information" at you. This is not engaging for you as there is no element of thought for you to be a sponge. Instead, I will encourage you to think for yourself and anticipate what the next steps are.
I have found online sessions to be the best form of teaching as they are more interactive. In addition, I like to follow students own course outlines, working towards any upcoming assessments or seminars which need to be prepared for.
I have a patient, nurturing but firm approach. I am fun, approachable and down to earth. I will always be honest and believe that everyone should further their knowledge and would love to be a part of helping someone do that!
I provide teaching on all core subjects with some options too. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me to discuss any optional subjects. Practice: Family Law, Property Law, Private Client and Civil Litigation
I have experience working with students with SEN; dyslexia, ADHD and ASD.
I have experience teaching A-Level Law directly into schools, so I am familiar with the exam boards, teaching methods and materials. I am also offering a pre-recorded package of A-Level law lessons. These will be charged at rates less than my hourly rate. These do not have to include ongoing tutoring and will just be lectures that my students have found helpful. They then do have weekly support with me. My students who have taken up this option have found it particularly useful for year 12 students whose teaching was interrupted by Covid. The lectures cover the whole of the A-Level syllabus. For an additional fee, as a package, if you still do not want tutoring lessons, I can provide you with questions to answer and return them to me to mark for you too. Please get in touch with me to discuss.
(These lectures have also helped University undergrads for LLB core modules, GDL core modules and CILEX level 3 for distance learners who have no support).
I am in the process of creating a group mini-series of lessons as an 'Introduction to Law. It will cover the foundations of the legal system and introduce you to law and technology, law and morality and law and society. This can be carried out as group lessons (reduced hourly rate) and also as 1:1 support.
For students who enjoy extracurricular - I will be starting a mini-debate/moot club which will be group sessions, and we can debate a different topic each week or have a mini-moot. If you are interested in this, please do let me know.
I also offer group and 1:1 lessons on OSCOLA referencing and research using LexisNexis. (I can do Westlaw too, but I personally prefer LexisNexis), if this is something you are interested in, then do let me know.
I also provide a proofreading service for essays, coursework, dissertations etc. I can also offer guidance on how to structure the essay ahead of writing it, so there is a starting point that will help you obtain the best possible grade and not involve a re-write after proofreading.
There are different levels of packages available, which are dependant on; word count and turnaround time. All prices include a video call to go through any feedback afterwards. All documents will be returned using a track changes document. Discounts for students already receiving tutoring, multiple essays, or return on the same essay following feedback will apply. Please get in touch with me for a quote.

Good lesson, good information and direction of work towards the exam.
Good insight into questions to go through for a better understanding of the information needed for the subject.

The best!!! Simply the best. I’ve found Amba in a very stressful time and she helped me more than I could ever imagine! She’s very resourceful and straightforward. She knows exactly what she’s doing and always on the same page with the topic ! Was a pleasure to have her as a tutor ! 31st December, 2020
I can’t recommend Amba enough, honestly, she made land law a lot easier. She helped me understand my assessments and guided me throughout. Her feedback on my work was extremely helpful. 13th January, 2021

10/10 very easy to work with and I have and still learning alot, of vital and additional information. Great tutor and great great value for money. I recommend Amba 100% 26th February, 2021
Amba is extremely understanding and wonderful to work with! From the first session with her I ended up understanding which areas I needed to improve on immediately but also felt immediately more confident with my own knowledge in law knowing I had a tutor who understood what how to approach me. During our first session I was unable to attend due to a small seizure (epileptic), but Amba rearranged a time to suit me and my schedule, recording my sessions and sending them to me so that I may watch the sessions back at a later date for future use. Amba has also been brilliant with my ‘recall issues’ - in this session, she often tested me, implementing ‘Essay style questions’ and recall style tests into sessions alongside her usual methods to make sure I had understood and remembered the material. Amba is extremely clear and thorough in her method as a tutor, going above and beyond to help her students and I would highly recommend her to anyone. 19th August, 2020

Amazing tutor 20th December, 2019
I'm on my now second session with Amba and I have plenty more booked. She is patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable in what shes teaching. Where my brain fogs in certain areas, where I can't understand something, I feel comfortable enough to ask her or she clears my thinking a bit which is the type of support you need from a Tutor. I am a dyslexic student so my comprehension is very weak but with Amba I understand the information I am reading a lot better. Greatful to have found her:) 8th December, 2019
She is amazing. The way to teach me and the notes very helpful in the exam. Love her. 7th January, 2020
Amba is a brilliant undergraduate law tutor , she allowed me to work at my own pace and guided me sufficiently along the way.She also shared useful law resources and advice which I benefitted from .I highly recommend her ! 10th January, 2020
I had four or five sessions with Amba in the month or so heading up to my CILEx lvl 3 Land Law Exam and it was so helpful. We went through past papers to identify any areas I needed extra work on. We set a past paper for me to complete before each webinar and then we went through my answers together, if there was anything I’d misunderstood or gotten wrong, Amba was able to explain how/why and she knew all the case law off the top of her head and could tell me what happened, which really helped. Amba’s very friendly and easy to talk to. Amba was also helping a university student with their land law module at a similar time to me so she’s well up to speed with the different education courses and their different syllabuses and expectations. I would definitely recommend
