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.
I have experience of working with students with SEN; dyslexia, ADHD and ASD.
I will help you to learn through application of law to real case studies, as opposed to "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. 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 that little bit more interactive, 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 apart of helping someone do that!
I have been tutoring students across all disciplines of law, and differing levels; A Level, CILEX, LLB, LLM, LPC and GDL. I am able to 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 spent the last 6 months tutoring University students who have had their studies disrupted. I have tutored the core law undergraduate modules whilst I have been completing my LPC / LLM. I have tutored all of the core law modules, supported in law firm applications and in addition have studied various elective modules. My tutoring experience has been predominantly based online and therefore I am extremely efficient and experienced in this.
I have circa 5 years experience of professional legal training and also experience of CILEx training. I am always happy to discuss your preferred learning style and adapt my presentation to suit.
Starting out my professional career I graduated as a lawyer in Germany. I worked for the Civil Service as a cross jurisdictional lawyer to include UK, Scotland, British Isles and Europe work. I returned back to the UK after my son was born spent many years working in Government and other public bodies before deciding that I needed to update my legal skills to remain “ahead of the game”. As such I am familiar with the level of work and commitment required to study whilst working and having a young family and look forward to supporting you with your studies. My greatest achievements, outside of my children, are that I was admitted to the degree of Master of Laws in Law and Employment Relations from Leicester University Faculty of Law in 2007 and that I hold a Fellowship of the Institute of Leadership and Management gained in 2008.
After gaining higher qualifications, I decided that practising law was not for me so I decided to share my wealth of experience with others and began lecturing.
My experience in lecturing in Law, HR and Management at various Universities and Colleges for over 10 years means that I am well versed in Legal, Human Resources and Leadership & Management related topics. Having extensive subject knowledge and teaching experience means that I am well suited to improving the academic performance of students through motivation to succeed and engagement with the subject.
I have tutored law students at a range of different levels: 'A' Level, Degree and Professional Qualification Level - i.e., Law undergraduates seeking to pass the Professional Examinations and Lawyers from other jurisdictions seeking to re-qualify in the UK.
The law subjects I have tutored are as follows:-
Tort, Contract, Equity and Trusts, Public Law, Jurisprudence, Human Rights, English Legal System, Wills and Probate, Solicitors Accounts
I have also assisted with Dissertation preparation and the LNATs - The Law National Aptitude Tests
