Barry

English and Law Teacher in Coleraine

I am an ex-Barrister-at-Law, having studied and practised law for 17 years. I studied in Edinburgh, York and London and practised (mainly) in Belfast. I have appeared in every level of court from the local Magistrates’ Court, to the Court of Appeal, the (former) House of Lords and the European Court of Human Rights. I currently volunteer for the Community Rescue Service (Search and Rescue) and I live on the North Coast of Northern Ireland with my wife and 3 children.

Tutoring Experience

I currently train members of my Search and Rescue team on various aspects of Search and Rescue.

Tutoring Approach

I tutor with patience to ensure that pupils understand the point(s) being put across. Learning should not be a painful process, subjects will be explained to engage the pupil so they want to learn/ investigate/ question. I build an understanding the way you build a home..... put in solid foundations, build on those with knowledge, incorporating live examples and then put the roof on by ensuring the pupil has grasped the subject matter, in that they are able to highlight the key aspects of the subject and can provide a summary of the pertinent points.
Side-note: In relation to the Law tutoring, I am not permitted to assist, advise or give an opinion in relation to specific legal problems a person may have. My services are in relation to Law practise and procedure tutoring, for academic purposes only.
