I also have special experience in Birkbeck and SOAS law syllabuses, having tutored three students in Equity, Land, Company law and Public law.

I aslo have experience helping LPC students in LEGAL WRITING and RESEARCH as well as those preparing for litigation papers.

Most notably, I have helped students from the University of Hertfordshire, students from SOAS, Westminster, Middlesex uni, Leeds and King's. Therefore, I am very familiar with the syllabus and the points examiners look for.

I have taught students to do courseworks in the past including the nitty-gritty referencing, footnotes, and most importantly the research skills. I have also helped students from law/politics courses.

Students who require tailor-made notes on any of the above law subjects are also welcome to contact me. I am able to deliver the notes custom-made to your specifications.

If you require MODEL ANSWERS TO Q & A of your past-papers, please email me your past years and inform me the extent of service you need. I have experience constructing answer guides and model answers in the past for students reading law in a few universities.

Tutoring Approach:

Exam-orientated style of teaching designed to achieve the best possible marks in the examinations
Heavy focus on teaching students to answer legal problem and essay questions
A lot of case analyses to discuss legal concepts, doctrines and principles
The entire lecture will be built on technique and helping students answer the exam questions.
Very versatile teaching which will be tailored to the student's request.

CUSTOM-MADE NOTES PROVIDED ACCORDING TO THE STUDENT'S SYLLABUS - no need for the student to buy expensive Q & A books. I will do the research of the books in the **Contact Detail Removed** and deliver the notes totally free to the students with the conclusion of each lesson to build on the study!

My passion and style is also particularly suited to students NEW TO THE STUDY OF LAW including FIRST-YEAR UNDERGRADUATES.

I am also effective at helping students during LAST-MINUTE REVISION score good marks by planning out and implementing an intensive study regime

In short, if you want to score top marks in your law exams and gain an all-round perspective of the law in practice, I am the tutor to serve your needs!
