My name is Erin and I am 25 years old. I finished my masters in Human Rights Law in November 2017 and have since moved from Edinburgh to London to work as research assistant to Geoffrey Robertson QC in Doughty Street Chambers, the UK's leading human rights law firm.
I love to learn and share knowledge and remain very passionate about doing so. In two years time, I hope to begin my PhD in Indigenous Rights in Fairbanks, Alaska.
I love to be outdoors and play a lot of sports. I am currently training to run my first marathon in Tromsø next year.
I began tutoring professionally in 2013 and currently tutor Law to undergraduate students and masters students, specialising in international human rights law, public law, humanitarian law, criminal law, refugee law and medical jurisprudence. I am happy to be contacted for general lessons, assistance in essay writing and for assistance in application processes, such as drafting personal statements.
I graduated from the University of Edinburgh - so if you are currently completing their syllabus I would love to hear from you. I particularly enjoy teaching EU Law, Public Law, Critical Legal Thinking, Family Law, Contract and Evidence!
For the last two years, I have worked as a climbing instructor alongside my studies. This role has honed my teaching style - I love to raise the enthusiasm of students and build a positive working relationship based on trust and communication. The first rule that applies to each of my climbing lessons is that the student must succeed - this means assessing their current level and setting them tasks that will set them up for success. When confidence kicks in a student can reach beyond their expectations and excel. Adapting lesson plans to tailor each student and their learning style is essential in this process and it is a task I very much enjoy.
