I am a resourceful law tutor with over 5 years broad experience working with students from multicultural backgrounds. I completed my PhD in Law at the University of Leicester. Together with my passion to impart, what I find most fulfilling as a teacher is that moment when I get calls from my students screaming over the phone I made it; I made it, I got an A in ! Nothing compares to the satisfaction that comes from the good news of my students outstanding success in their exams; it is the whole essence of the tutoring process. I am also proficient in alternative dispute resolution and ensuring relationship building, as some cases should not end up in court
I have extensive experience in supporting diverse students with learning difficulties, especially with being patient and breaking down topics to simple, clear and logical sub-topics for ease of understanding in the following areas:
One-to-one tutorials in Land Law, Contract, Tort, Criminal, Company, Equity & Trust, EU Law, Public International Law and Human Rights Law
Planning, writing and reviewing Essays, Dissertation and Thesis
Preparation for Exams, revising past questions, provide support on the choice of questions bearing the marking criteria in mind.
Online teaching, assessing essays and providing timely and constructive feedbacks
Providing opportunities for negotiations, mediation and conciliation
I teach law at three tiers (A levels-AS/A, undergraduate and postgraduate). My teaching experience spans across the foundation subjects such as Constitutional and Administrative law, Equity and Trust to include other core and optional courses. I am also able to support students with special needs.
I am passionate about law and the most important thing in teaching is not just the knowledge of the subject but the ability to impart others with the knowledge. I have demonstrated this ability both in classroom teaching with logical presentation of course materials, as well as in one-to-one situation, putting the students at the centre of my teaching. I communicate clearly and concisely both verbally and in writing. I am empathetic and yet very persuasive in communication in order to foster students learning and participation.
I was privileged to have had excellent teachers during my education. This is very important as ones enthusiasm to learn and passion for a subject can be greatly dwindled if one is unfortunate to have the wrong teacher. With this in mind, I am very conscious of how I come across to my students, I am excellent at the use of the right language at all times and I endeavour to show sincere interest in my students personal development, understanding their special needs, their strengths and weaknesses, and at the same time maintaining high academic standards.
Overall, I am a compassionate, patient and engaging tutor. I love to impart young people. I maintain an inclusive learning environment and I support all my students to achieve their full potentials regardless of any special circumstances or needs.
