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, land 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.
I have been a private tutor with Spires for 3 years, and have had many successful clients who have rated me as excellent, including: GCSE Law pupils; Cambridge admission pupils (Law); many A-level Politics pupils (both AQA and Edexcel) and clients in a multitude of other academic disciplines. 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 A levels. I helped my sister achieve an A* in her EPQ and I have 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 am very used to working with people who want to achieve their full potential. On Spires I have tutored in English, Politics and Law.
I tutor because it's something that I genuinely enjoy. I am a qualified and practising solicitor with a passion for teaching. After having worked for several private law firms and local authorities, I now work as a locum solicitor during the summer months and tutor and teach during the academic year because I find it immensely rewarding. It is my passion and enthusiasm for the vocation that make me a good tutor.
I have four years of tutoring experience teaching various law subjects to university students. I have also taught studying techniques and essay writing techniques (with particular focus on legal essay writing) at university level.
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 was appointed Associate Lecturer at UCLan Cyprus and been voted as the most inspiring lecturer. I taught introduction to English legal system and civil procedure rules, for two years.
I possess more than 20 hours of online teaching and received positive feedback.
I have over 360 paid hours of experience working on University Preparation and Academic English courses. My experience includes one-on-one personal statement workshops, personal statement writing, interview practice workshops and one-on-one mock interviews.
I have previously assisted two students recently in editing and refining their personal statements, both of whom received offers from Oxbridge. Currently, I am working with several students applying to Oxbridge and other top ranked UK universities. I am also tutoring several students on the LNAT, covering techniques for both the multiple choice questions and short essay. In addition, I am working with a Criminology undergraduate and several students studying history A-level.
I also have extensive experience in teaching British Parliamentary debating and Model United Nations (MUN).
I successfully gained offers from 5 top UK Universities (Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter, Nottingham and Birmingham) to study Law via UCAS, including scoring highly in the LNAT. I then completed the University of Cambridge SAQ and a college based law test, to secure a place at Pembroke College, Cambridge.
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 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.
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.
