Personal Description:

Hi! I'm Kate. I have just graduated from the University of Cambridge with a First Class Degree in Law, winning scholarships for exam performance. I am currently training to be a solicitor at the University of Law before embarking on a training contract. Outside my studies I spend time playing football, cooking with friends, and travelling (when I can afford to!). I am friendly and approachable, and hope to build your confidence in whichever subject you want help with.

Tutoring Experience:

I am comfortable helping students of all ages. I have:
- Volunteered at my local primary school in Hackney helping to build the reading and writing skills of the youngest students in preparation for their transition to older years;
- Tutored two primary school age children in Madrid as an au pair in 2017 to assist with their English skills;
- Been part of an informal internal tuition scheme while at school where I helped students in younger years for subjects they struggled with up to GCSE level. I tutored in English, Maths and Spanish, my eventual A Level subjects; and
- Helped older students refine their Personal Statements and applications to universities, with subjects ranging from Classics to History to Medicine.
- Proficient for tutoring Law in the following areas: the LNAT, Jurisprudence, Labour Law, EU Law and Criminal Justice.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on being approachable and flexible as a tutor. I want to create an unintimidating, friendly and stimulating environment so you get the most out of each session. My main focus is on building confidence, and have found that encouraging students to ask any and every question is the way forward. I try not to follow a ‘strict’ curriculum in my sessions except when requested, although I will prepare an outline lesson for each session once we have identified skills and needs.

In general, I prefer a conversational approach to lessons with some structured work to build each session around (either prepared for the session, taken from school work, or done there and then). However, this approach can be moderated depending on need. For example, I would be happy to conduct small mock interviews for students if they need, or make the lessons more interactive if you prefer different learning styles. I also prioritise giving extensive oral and written feedback.

I have sat intensive exams at the end of every year for the past 7 years (going into my eighth now), so I am used to the pressures and worries of these periods. I have also refined exam tips and techniques from this period so I can help the student zero in on what is required, and disregard unnecessary information.

Ultimately, I want my tutees to feel happy and confident in whatever they aim to achieve.
