I am a firm believer in the importance of combining both a firm understanding/knowledge of academic subject matter with the ability to apply it to exams. In the current educational system, the importance of being exam-ready can not be underestimated. Therefore I follow a two-pronged approach:
1. Engage interest and a firm understanding of the subject matter.
2. Comprehension of the assessment's requirements and application of knowledge to these requirements.
I have a wealth of experience in tutoring and teaching children and young adults. My experience includes being a teacher's assistant for ages 5-8 and tutoring A-level students to their required grades in Economics. English literature, as my degree, is my obvious strength, but having done History and Economics at A level (receiving A* in all three subjects), I am able to tutor beyond this subject.

Legal and Commercial Work Experience
Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner
• Work Placement (September 2018)
• I was rewarded a work placement as a result of being a Campus Ambassador. I sat in the M&A and Corporate Finance department. I had the opportunity to consolidate my understanding of the M&A process and the lawyer’s part in this. This was tested when I was assigned to draft board minutes for a share-to-share exchange. I had to acquire suitable knowledge of the resolutions associated with standard shares purchase and adapt them. I also cemented my understanding of the potential liabilities and gains associated with a deal. Particularly when formulating a commercial report on a company based on financial and legal reports. I found it especially interesting how a solicitor’s approach to a deal is informed in each case by individual clients’ needs and the dynamic state of the wider economy. I experienced this when formulating a report on an audio-visual company’s solutions for risks posed by Brexit.
• London Insight Scheme (April 2018, 1 week)
• A week spent in the firm’s CDRG department where I worked on a variety of tasks. These included analysing a contract between a company about to go into insolvency and its payment provider and redrafting a report on the case. I found the skills of close textual examination and collation of information, developed through my degree, proved particularly useful with this exercise. I undertook research tasks on the different forms of dispute resolution, the rules of civil procedure and arbitration and the ambiguous definition of gross negligence. This helped me grasp the complexity and diversity of and the importance of specificity in the department’s work. I felt especially engaged with the future of the department and the industry in this week. I was able to discuss the use Predictive Coding in document review with pioneers of this technology and the jurisdictional difficulties that arise in cases involving infringement via the Internet.
