I graduated from King's College London in 2017 with a First Class LLB. I have firsts in the following modules: Property, Trusts & Equity, Tort, Competition Law, and Company Law.
I can make complicated concepts easily accessible, and I am good at developing solid exam techniques.

I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.
I am logged in, the last 2 weeks.

Dermot's Experience

While I'm new to tutoring, throughout my degree I've worked with and helped other students. I helped several friends of mine with their upcoming Property and Trusts exams. I was a mentor to a first year student while in my final year. As part of my degree, and on the LPC, I've also had to review and give feedback on the written work of other students.
