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 researcher to Geoffrey Robertson QC of 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. I am currently studying to sit the Bar Exam and wish to work as a barrister and lecturer, which is why tutoring remains very important and enjoyable for me. In the latter endeavour I am looking to complete my PhD in Indigenous Rights in Fairbanks, Alaska in 2021.
I love to be outdoors and play a lot of sports. I am currently learning to play ice hockey.
I began tutoring professionally in 2013 whilst living in Oslo 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 and most of my current students are completing their LLB there - so if you are currently completing their syllabus I would love to hear from you. I particularly enjoy teaching EU Law, Property, Commercial, Public Law, Critical Legal Thinking, Family Law, Criminal Law and Evidence!
Throughout my studies I also worked as a climbing instructor. 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.
I run most of my lessons via Skype and share my lesson plans and notes with my students so they can read along with me, and we can work out the problem questions together so that they feel confident going into their exams. Application of the law is key to understanding and something that a lot of students seem to miss out on, so this remains to be my main focus during our time together.
