« I would thoroughly recommend Seb to anybody who requires tuition in law, especially private law topics. I wouldn't have made it through my degree without his assistance, and his ability to discuss key cases and concepts with me. His method of tutoring is second to none. Thanks for everything Seb! »

Oxford graduate from Germany offering lessons in English as a second language

Methodology

I approach teaching in a dynamic way utilising a plethora of methods to communicate relevant information. I strongly believe that a comfortable environment is conducive to more effective learning. As such development and progress is at the foreground of my teaching.

Experience

As a German native I finished the Abitur with English as one of my majors. Earlier this year I graduated from the University of Oxford having studied law. As such I have extensive experience in learning English as a second language in both an academic and business setting. Further, I hold the CAE C2 qualification (native level) and can assist in all parts of the examination.

I would thoroughly recommend Seb to anybody who requires tuition in law, especially private law topics. I wouldn't have made it through my degree without his assistance, and his ability to discuss key cases and concepts with me. His method of tutoring is second to none. Thanks for everything Seb!

N
Nathan

Seb is a friendly, charismatic, and patient individual who also happens to be one of the most intelligent people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. He has vast experience in helping and mentoring younger students - they often speak of his well-planned and engaging sessions. He would be a fantastic choice for a tutor.

N
Nina

Sebastian is a very knowledgeable and motivating tutor, I would high recommend him for any kind of lessons. He is very well spoken and explains complex topics very well - in particular I’d commend him for being so enthusiastic and for building my confidence with concepts I wasn’t totally sure about.

L
Laura

From personal experience, I have found that Sebastian explains complex Law topics in an easy-to-understand manner. He uses relevant and interesting examples when teaching about Law, and he encourages lots of discussion; this is very engaging and makes content easy to remember. I’d highly recommend Sebastian as a tutor.

Alicia

Sebastian is a reliable and friendly tutor who provided dynamic and interesting lessons for my two daughters. He is vastly experienced and this shows in his sessions, but he remains approachable - my daughters loved him and he made sessions fun and entertaining.

Thanks so much
