I have taught in China, Cambodia and within the UK. My teaching approach is tailored to suit a student's personal needs. Personally I learn best from flashcards, practice tests and repetition. However, I have had students that have used other techniques such as; 'teaching back', Tactile/kinesthetic learners, Auditory learners and visual learners (like myself). I offer great aftercare services (inbetween booked sessions), I will happily take quick phone calls to explain problems, whatsapp or even look over essay submissions.
I have a wealth of experience in applying for mini-pupillages, legal volunteering etc. So if this is also something that you wish to discuss during the lesson, we can make arrangements to do so.
As a business and law graduate, I have successfully combined my studies with relevant work experience and other commitments showing myself to be self-motivated, organised and capable of working under pressure. I have a clear, logical mind with a practical approach to problem-solving and a drive to see things through to completion. In short, I am reliable, trustworthy, hardworking and eager to teach.
I am currently undertaking my PhD in Law (Criminal Justice Studies) and teaching penology. I have two MA's, PgDip, LLB (hons).

The charity is dedicated to providing free, independent assistance to people facing proceedings without legal representation.

It has been a consistent learning experience, while also being rewarding as I am able to work alongside the clients researching into their options, making me appreciate the applicability of the law.
