I currently work as a solicitor practising in a wide variety of areas including civil litigation and private client.
During my education I have developed my skills significantly and have published several articles on maritime law.
I have an LLM from University of Southampton in Maritime Law and I achieved a good Upper Second Class Honours (2:1) in my LLB. This included several 1sts including my dissertation.
I also studied A level law and am happy to tutor any level of law and in any subject area I which I have experience.
During the course of my education I have encountered many aspects of law and I have excellent academic and practical knowledge of most aspects that you are likely to encounter in A level/ Degree level or postgraduate.
My lecturers and students have said I have a friendly approachable way in explaining subjects to them and I have been encouraged to become a lecturer by my alma mater.
I have extensive knowledge of Maritime Law, Insurance Law, Contract Law, Land Law (including Landlord and Tenant), Tort Law, Criminal Law, Employment Law and Human Rights Law.
I have taught many students at A level and University level in the years since my studies and have always received excellent feedback and fantastic results. I try to tailor my tutoring to the individual student's needs where possible.
My teaching experience ranges from extensive, detailed teaching of each subject from scratch to more of an overview for exam preparation. I also often help students structure and refine their essays.
Law can be extremely complicated and during my degrees I have learned that the key is to keep it simple. Law can be very easy once you understand the basic rules and exceptions. I therefore ensure my students understand the basic concepts before we moved on and considered the more advanced research or reading.
I personally own many textbooks, including some practitioners works (such as Arnould on Marine Insurance), for almost every subject you are likely to encounter. However, I would suggest learning from the student's own resources as these tend to be more specifically suited to their syllabus.
I also have access to various legal resources through my work as a solicitor.
