Personal Description:

Having practiced as a barrister for 10 years and having taught law in various forms since 2006, I have a great deal of relevant, practical experience and knowledge. My areas of practice included civil litigation, criminal litigation and family. I have taught many subjects at degree level both within universities and privately, including crime, tort, contract, constitutional and administrative law, criminal justice, family, immigration and employment I have also taught at A-Level law (AQA).

I also provide tuition to secondary school students in both English language and literature. I am currently assisting several Year 11 students with GCSE preparation and I am helping several Year 7-9 students to develop the understanding and skills which will prepare them for GCSE.

I also have up to date experience of teaching English to speakers of other languages ESOL and I can assist with learning spoken and written English skills for anybody learning English as a foreign language.

Tutoring Experience:

As well as teaching substantive law, I have taught on both the Legal Practice Course and the Bar Professional Training Course. I have taught Civil and Criminal Litigation, Personal Injury/Clinical Negligence, Advocacy, Conference/Negotiation and Written Skills (Opinion Writing and Drafting). I am very experienced and I always get excellent student feedback. I am also a freelance marker for the subjects I teach and I therefore have a very good understanding of what students need to do to pass exams.

I have taught on the ILEX course both at Level 3 and Level 6.

I have a great deal of teaching experience and I am able to assist with subjects other than law, notably English, both language and literature. These are subjects I studied to A-level and the skills necessary to do well in these subjects are closely aligned to the skills required of a lawyer, namely the skills of speaking and writing confidently and persuasively, analysing information, planning and structuring written work and using language effectively. I also provide tutoring to assist with developing the skills associated with public speaking and debating. These are invaluable employability skills which are frequently overlooked in schools but can make such a difference to a youngster's confidence and motivation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very experienced lecturer and small group tutor. However, my approach to teaching lends itself well to personal tuition. I am good at simplifying difficult legal concepts and getting students to understand things. I have a pragmatic approach to passing exams. I know what markers look for and I can provide good advice on exam technique. I am happy to provide tutoring on general areas of my expertise or to target sessions to particular areas of concern. I can provide skills training. I can also assist with exam preparation and interview practice.

I am happy to travel within a 25 mile radius of Nantwich. I charge mileage for this (£0.20 per mile).
