My Passion & How I Inspire

I passionately believe that tuition should be focused on what the student needs in order to pass the exam/ attain their desired mark for their essay. I always create tuition materials (slides, handouts, activity sheets and essay plans) that are tailored to my student’s exact course syllabus and school/university requirements. I see my role as not only helping my students achieve academic success but also reigniting their passion for the subject I am teaching. As a Tutor I know it is my role to support and encourage my students and I always do my upmost reply to correspondence straight away so that my students know if they are struggling I am only a message away.

My Experience

I am returning to tutoring after having to withdraw from my position as a Pupil Barrister due to family illness. I offer my tutees a personalised 1-2-1 service with notes that are tailored to the tutee’s course and learning style. I am a highly motivated tutor and independent learner. I am passionate about teaching, learning and professional development. I have held many varied teaching/ mentoring and tutoring positions. I care deeply about all of my tutees and helping them succeed. I am happy to help my tutees both academically and professionally as I provide services that cover academic modules, dissertation planning, essay marking, CV writing, job application assistance and professional development.
