First Class Law graduate offering both english and law lessons in Glasgow

Methodology

I approach teaching from an analytical perspective, which I have gained substantial skills in during my law degree. I have developed fine tuned skills at critical analysis which I believe can hugely benefit any high school student. I also believe that a detailed explanation is crucial to self improvement so spend a lot of time explaining my methodology and providing detailed comments to any piece of work I mark.

Background

I am a law graduate currently studying the diploma in professional legal practice before I go on to work as a solicitor in September. I graduated in May with a first class degree in Law and French and am looking to tutor individuals in either english, law or any variety of proof reading. I achieved an A in Higher and Advanced Higher English, with the best grade in the class in advanced higher.
