Leyland Tutor

Educated at Oxford University with a year at the Sorbonne in Paris, learning is at the heart of my life. I love tutoring all types of student, and I like to think that I not only get people ready for exams but also give them an enthusiasm for learning which will improve their quality of life and appreciation of little things every day.

I am married with 3 children aged between 12 and 8. I have an easy relationship with young people, with 21 years' experience of leadership on youth camps.

Tutoring Experience

My tutoring experience is wide-ranging and eclectic. You can see the subjects I offer and I have tutored all of them successfully to students at different stages in their careers.

Tutoring Approach

Every student is different, and has his or her own unique reason for needing or wanting a tutor. Perhaps you need a little boost to get up to the next grade. Perhaps you need the basics reinforcing as you feel lost academically. Perhaps you need help developing your own study or writing style and getting the most out of your education.

I will aim to get inside your way of thinking, broadening your horizons within your chosen subject, as well as jumping through all the hoops that exams require.

During exam season I can offer a one-off study skills session at £35ph in your chosen subject, even outside of my normal subject range. This will make a difference to your personal exam preparation and will give you confidence as you undertake last-minute swotting! There is technique and method in successful study and I can show you how to do it better.

I work at the pace of the student. I will make you want to learn!

Mileage is 45p per mile, and in the evenings I only work from home. Thankyou.

Additionally, I do not tutor the LPC course, since I do not have the qualification myself. If you are an LPC student and would like to study under "study skills" then this is fine, but please be aware that I won't be familiar with the curriculum.

PS Sadly I do need to add to my profile the following information:

I have been contacted by a number of undergraduate law students in a great hurry during the final few days before their exams, when they have been given the exam questions and allowed to plan their answers at home in advance. It has been their habit to request up to 10 hours of my time in the following 3-4 days, in order to plan their exam answers with me.
I am not available for this kind of tuition; I view it as cheating. Not being someone who sits at home doing nothing, I tend not to have those sort of hours available at very short notice anyway. If the university thinks it a good idea to give out exam questions in advance (and I still haven't got used to this idea!) then they are surely expecting students to plan their answers alone.
Go for it: do the exams in your own strength! If you need to cheat now you will never make it professionally anyway, and I would appreciate not having my inbox filled up with this sort of email. Many thanks.
