My teaching method is heavily dependent on the student. I focus on people who need a certain grade for University requirements and help them go above and beyond this level to flourish beyond their A-level / GCSE studies.
I myself, enjoy learning through talking, so discussing concepts and figuring out solutions orally. However, a great tutor will recognise that not every student is the same, and everybody reacts differently to different resources. There will be set work between sessions to be completed for the next meeting to ensure that work is consolidated and is stored in the long term memory. Small tests will be issued at regular intervals to ensure that progression is occurring at a rate which pleases both sides.
I have a vast experience tutoring. I assist in language lessons at a local comprehensive secondary school, was a language tutor at my own school during sixth form and have also tutored for the 11+ and Oxford entrance exams for the past three years. So far all of my students have passed / achieved the grade that they have needed in their examinations, which is exceptionally rewarding.
University of Oxford | Jurisprudence (with Law studies in Europe) - (2017-2021) with European studies
specialising in German Law.
Scholarships - On grounds, amongst other factors, of academic excellence, I am on the Lloyds Scholars and Moritz-Heyman scholarship programmes. One aspect of these scholarships that are particularly beneficial is the increased access to mentors, internships and a focus on skill-development.
Academic achievements: 2A*s 2As & 1B at A-Level (In German, History, Philosophy, EPQ and French), 7A*s 4As at GCSE. Extend Project Qualification: Grade A, entitled ‘Should judges possess unilateral decision making authority?’ in which I compared the English and German legal systems focusing on comparisons between the influence of a jury (or lack thereof) and also common and civil law systems.
Debating/ Public Speaking and Mooting Skills -
2015-2017: Lead organiser of School Debating Society. I possessed the role of delegating debate topics for the society, requiring an awareness of current events, selecting prominent and actual social, political and even philosophical subject matters.
2015-2017: Member of School Amnesty International Group. The group led assemblies and charity events in order to encourage students to support the cause, I particularly took interest in the ‘Write for Rights’ campaign, a project encouraging individuals to write to corrupt governments asking them to release prisoners awaiting the death sentence for ‘crimes’ such as being homosexual or writing articles criticising the government, sparking a real interest for Human Rights.
2016-2017: Co-ordinator of a moot trial. During my U6th year I organised, led and oversaw our school’s first ever moot trial. The focus was on the highly controversial and intriguing crime of Joint Enterprise; I also undertook the role of heading the prosecution. The question of the case was whether it was reasonable to assume that the defendant has foreseen and consequently not taken reasonable steps to prevent a murder. The crime is so heavily criticised as it renders the defendant ‘guilty by association’ and sentencing is deemed disproportionately harsh. Articles produced on the association JENGbA (who advocate against the offence), are what inspired me to choose this crime as the focus of the trial.
Other Experience -
Summer 2016: Experience Aberdeen Law Summer Programme. Highlights included being able to visit real trials in courts, practising mooting skills and learning about alternative dispute resolution.
2017: Volunteering with Schools Plus. My role includes going into local Oxford schools and assisting students in German. Having been a language ambassador at my school I have had a variety of experience tutoring.
