Paralegal with a masters in law and a first class degree offering lessons in law at undergraduate level, A-Level and GSCE.

Methodology

My teaching methodology involves working out exactly what you need help with and helping you to understand what you need help with. Then working out what you already know and what you do not know. I find it effective to use a traffic light system when working through topics within modules to help highlight what areas you feel confident in, what areas you are somewhat confident in and what areas you need the most help with.
I like to help students create clear timetables to complete work and often use a timetable myself to follow to help you keep on track.

Experience

I am first class graduate law student who has completed GSCE law, A level law, the Law Degree (LLB) and the Legal Practice Course.

My previous results:
> GSCE Law - A*
> A-Level Law - A
> Law LLB - First Class Honors (75%) where I achieved the highest grade in Employment law, Human Rights law, Social Justice and Law and Religion
> LPC with a combined masters - 71% (Predicted Distinction)

I also have experience working in a law firm in Family Law and Private Client law.

What I can help you with:
- GSCE law, A-Level law, the compulsory subjects for the LLB, Human rights law, social justice law, employment law, law and religion, family law and private client law
- How to make yourself more employable
- How to create a strong CV
- How to write an effective Cover Letter
- Advice on how to become involved in extra curriculum activities
- General exam help (e.g how to structure answers and effectively time manage)
- Revision and pre-exam preparation

Ellie has given me legal advice on many occasions, all the advice given from Ellie worked in my favour and helped me massively. All information gathered from myself by Ellie was kept confidential and dealt with professionally.
I cannot recommend Ellie enough.

I’ve known Ellie since my A-Level studies and even then, her proficiency in law was evident not only in her grades but also her enthusiasm. As someone who has studied the subject since GCSE level, she is more than capable of tutoring those going through the same thing that she did. Alongside this, her experience in industry at multiple firms can help students get some practical insight as well. Highly recommend!
