    My Experience

    Law: I spent 2018-19 tutoring students studying for their Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). My main experience focuses on the core GDL modules, namely Contract, Constitutional & Administrative, Criminal, Equity & Trusts, EU, Land, and Tort.

    History: I spent 2017-18 tutoring GCSE students in History in preparation for their exams. The topics covered included the Russian Revolution, the English Civil War, and the Norman Conquest. Having studied two degrees in History, I also feel comfortable with most areas of history to graduate level.

    Personal Statement: During the last two years I have helped a number of students with personal statements and university applications. I also have personal experience of graduate applications to Oxford.

    My Passion And How I Inspire

    My approach is exam-focused and, by extension, results-focused. Whilst learning content is crucial, exam-technique – the actual demonstration of what the student knows – can be the downfall of otherwise exemplary students. Practice, past papers, and selectively honed preparation for assessments is at the heart of my tutoring approach. Too many students focuses on learning as much as possible to the detriment of exam-technique. This can be a fatal error and one my tutoring approach seeks to redress.

    I played in the Oxford-Cambridge Varsity Golf Match for the 2nd Teams in 2018.
