Private Law Tutor in City of London

Yorkshire - London - Scottish based Law tutor. Retired from the full time rat race, so more time to tutor you! 40 years experience in law now. Lots of positive reviews on this site.

Mainly online tutoring nowadays (skype etc), so distance no object international coverage, all time zones.

Examples of services:

  • In person / online live tutoring. Usually focused on a particular topic or problem you have been set. Rates from £50 per hour or part. For new tutees, your first session can be up to 2 hours for the price of 1. Plus travel & expenses if it's in person, depending on where you are.

  • Outlines: You send me an essay etc problem and I send you back an outline of the points I would cover in an answer for your guidance. Very popular and often the best way to go. Usually about an hour's work (From £50).

  • Actual answers for you to submit as your own: I do NOT do these. They are cheating and if you just copy my work you WILL get caught!

  • Fee indications are just estimates I will supply you with a real estimate for your needs on request.

  • All fees payable in advance before work commences. Cancellations / noshows charged in full except where an individual appointment is agreed bona fide and then cancelled at least 7 days in advance, when a full refund will be made.

Tutoring Experience

As pаrt оf my legаl cаreer I hаve аlwаys enjоyed tutоring / cоаching / trаining / mentоring etc. Generаlly helping yоung peоple (аnd sоme nоt sо yоung!) leаrn аbоut the lаw аnd prоgress in а cаreer in it.

Nowadays I prefer online but if you are local to me we can meet and that's fine too. I like to tutor at your place or somewhere neutral so you feel more comfortable with it.

Tutoring Approach

I am happy to tutor one to one or to a group, and as a one-off (eg for that pressing exam or assignment) or on a more regular basis.

I find most students already know their stuff. They just lack confidence, and need help figuring out how to write essays etc.

There are lots of cheap tutors around, but beware! Often they're cheap for a reason, which is usually that they are not much more experienced than you are! I am an experienced professional, and I suspect cheaper in the long run.
