I am an Honours student at Glasgow University on course to graduate soundly with a graduate job already secured. I have acquired a vast grasp of legal knowledge and aim to simply pass this on to younger students needing some assistance with lessons or secondary school pupils needing help to prepare themselves properly for the LNAT.
My methodology is simple and primarily focuses on engagement - if the content can be made to sound interesting then it is easier to grasp and understand. I simplify difficult terms and can pass on my hints and tips, as well as looking over past papers and going through the correct approach to answer questions.
I have been given lessons for around 2 years now to students younger than me from my local area and also to a student interested in learning about UK law during my time on exchange in Scandinavia. I am an honours level student at the moment, and have just finished 2 summer placements with reputable Scottish and British legal firms, whilst securing a graduate job with Pinsent Masons, one of the largest firms in the UK.
I offer expert knowledge and teaching ability on existing Scots law subjects as well as preparation for the LNAT - a UCAS test requirement for some prestigious Scottish and British universities.

Perfect! Ben is one of the best tutors I have ever had. He is the kind of teacher who lets you make your own mistakes and then explains the lesson. He is patient, punctual and the most important go through more stages with you in order to improve and become better. I learned a lot from him and his feedback was more than important in improving my manner to answer in the exam questions. I truly recommend everyone to have him as a tutor. He is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher who definitely played an important role in my learning process.
