I am very passionate about teaching, it gives me the chance to open doors for students and to inspire them to explore new ideas. I embrace five core values as a teacher: (1) student-centred education that incorporates experiential exercises and provides the tools and incentives for life-long learning; (2) a focus on the three key apprenticeships of legal learning - cognitive, ethical, and practical; (3) multicultural perspective; (4) translating complicated topics into structured and easy-to-digest materials; and (5) interactive classes that encourage students’ growth and self-reflection.
I am an experienced tutor with practical compliance and legal experience from the financial services industry in London. I have 2 years experience as a law tutor for undergraduates at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, and 10 years experience as a private tutor in law, business, and language courses, career advice, and time management.
In addition to my teaching experience, I am a Chief Compliance Officer and Money Laundering Reporting Officer (SMF16 and SMF17) with a strong understanding of the FCA and SEC regulatory requirements that affect financial institutions in dynamic and fast-paced transactional environments.
I helped The Analyst to double in terms of revenue and staff by leading legal and compliance team as well as advising on the strategic development of the business. As recognition of my achievements to date, I was awarded the Management Today's 35 Women Under 35 in 2019, shortlisted for the Women in Finance 2020 Awards, and the Women in Financial Advice Awards 2020.
