Law graduate soon-to-be LPC LLM student offering English GCSE, Sociology GCSE/A-level and LLB EU Law lessons. Located in Doncaster.

Methodology

Lessons will focus on covering critical areas required for the exam from the syllabus, as well as exam techniques. I also wish to impart on my students the value of treating academic study as an opportunity for personal development so that they can become confident, employable and well-rounded individuals.

Background

I am a hard working and personable recent Law graduate from City, University of London. I am currently based in Doncaster and will begin my postgraduate legal studies on the LPC LLM in September 2018 as I aim to qualify as a solicitor.

I am passionate about helping students achieve their academic goals at both GCSE and A-Level. My specific talents lie in Personal Statements, Critical Essay Writing and A Grade essays (I achieved an A in GCSE Sociology and English and a 1st at 80% in my EU Law short dissertation-style essay module at University), English, Sociology, Law and The Extended Project.
