My lessons are interactive and break down difficult concepts to better facilitate the students understanding. From creating individualised worksheets to adapting my teaching styles to accommodate the student, my lessons are engaging and visual. Assessments and revision help fulfil objectives.
Teaching is an important arena that allows knowledge to be shared. The classroom or lessons are where students can sharpen their thinking skills, intuition and intellectual curiosity. I would like to pass on my knowledge or inspire someone through teaching, show my students the potential they have and motivate them in their studies and goals. The art of teaching is unique and with my lessons, I ensure that I am delivering the utmost.
I have extensive tutoring experience, particularly with international students. My main area of tutoring focuses on humanities-centered subjects such as English, Literature and History. Last summer, I tutored Chinese students who were preparing for TOFEL, ILETS and ESL. Your program requires tutors that tutors be able to assist students in multiple subjects and my experience allows me to achieve this. This past year, I have also tutored Asian students in History, English Language and guided their college/school application agenda. Having undergone the Oxbridge application process, I was able to pinpoint focus areas and give tips for improvement. For instance, many Russel Group universities require applicants to partake in activities or academic incentives that focus on their subject choice. I was able to provide my experience and the various training I had done to other students in helping them secure their place at an esteemed university.
Further, working with students of all ages is important. As a summer volunteer to help children read at my local library, I have experience with pre-school and primary school children. Currently, I tutor two 6-year-old children who are learning to read and write. This has helped me adopt methods better suited to a younger audience, for instance, planning activities, mixing reading/phonics with challenges that entail ‘points’ or giving homework that involves active interaction. These methods help stimulate younger children and widen their attention span.

Selected to debate in parliament for the motion of reducing the voting age to 16 and whether the UK should leave the EU. This experience enabled me to make productive connections with various organisations such as Idebate, 50:50 parliament and Liberty.

Improved my advocacy articulation and prepared me to think like a prosecutor and defender.

I was selected to represent Cambridge University for the moot against University College London.

This fresh sector of law gave me an insight into the challenging arena of commercialization and researching taxation, banking cases expanded my understanding of tricky concepts that I had not come across. My resilience nurtured a ‘can do’ attitude – a crucial attribute required in the legal sector.
Essex Court Chambers Moot Masterclass December 2020
This event was administered by Paul Stanley who gave an excellent seminar about how to authentically and persuasively present a case before a judge. He highlighted the importance of incorporating authorities, embedding structured legal reasoning within each argument and providing direction to the judge. This masterclass helped refine the structure of my skeletons and broadened my understanding of case law.
I am excited to immerse myself with the conceptually demanding issues, assess the case and statutory law, reason with logic and clarity, and master written and oral communications.

We were offered an insight into the firm and their inner-workings. Mr Sam Miller, a partner of the firm, started the programme with an introductory talk and his own experiences as a Lawyer. He shared his understanding of the Grenfell Tower case and his involvement during the public inquiry, providing us with an awareness of how dire the situation was within the legal domain. I was interested in their legal expansion to Africa and other areas of the world, prompting me to ask how they can overcome obstacles to gain links in such gripping regions. He detailed the many meetings they have with local firms in Africa and the Middle East for more natural merging. Having the opportunity to network with several associates across a range of sectors such as Tax law, International Arbitration, Real Estate and Energy Infrastructure allowed me to explore other dimensions of law that are not taught in first year.
Stolt-Nielsen, Rotterdam – Internship July 2020
This summer I was offered a legal internship at Stolt-Nielsen, a shipping company, under the direction of senior lawyer, Christian Ayerst. Exploring shipping law and working in the trade industry allowed me branch out to the unconventional areas of law that are seldom taught at University level education. During the internship, I learned about charter party agreements, bill of lading and procedures involving freight-forwarders. These were all areas alien to me but by the end of the internship I felt comfortable with the terminology and legal procedures involved for shipping containers. The tasks assigned were interactive and the hands-on approach exposed me to clients such as Shell International. Scrutinising and examining contract propositions between different companies that hold shipping agreements with Stolt was both challenging and rewarding.
The best part of the internship was plotting a shipping route for a client who were a depot of chemical storage facilities. We had to devise STC terms and conditions that was a reasonable compromise for both parties. This assisted my understanding of contract law, which is a module I am excited to delve into this year. Overall, the internship was a valuable experience that developed my legal acumen and encouraged me to adopt a constructive solution driven approach to problem solving.
