Rated 5/5 by students

Solicitor and PGCE Tutor based in Cardiff offering the best LAW and Politics tuition on line or FtF.

With 15 years experience teaching students Law and Politics starting at GCSE, A, AS, Undergraduate, Post Graduate and Professional courses. Being on the 'coal face' I feel I can bring what can be dogged subjects to life by applying a diverse range of teaching methods, social media, film, articles and contemporary information to make the subject matter relevant.
Each lesson is agreed with the student, and clear aims and objectives are agreed. At the end of each session there is a review of the points covered and any questions are addressed. The sessions are informal and are a two way process. All handouts and materials come at no extra cost.

I teach labor law. For the level(s)primary, secondary, GCSE, as level, a level, BTEC, adult education, undergraduate, masters, diploma, doctorate.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.

Hywel

I have known Owen for many years and have always admired his enthusiasm and positive attitude to life. He has a great sense of humour and I know his teaching style reflects these wonderful qualities.

Owen's Experience

I have been providing assistance to students for over 15 years and during that time probably taught in excess of 1000 students. I pride myself in bringing out the best in students so that they may achieve their potential. To date all students have exceeded their goals!

Owen's CV

Summary
A Costs Lawyer and PGCE Tutor with 20 years experience in all aspects of Litigation having initially taught Law and Politics in Cardiff at GCSE, AS AS and Undergraduate level before securing in-house positions with a Cost Lawyer firm.

I subsequently secured a position with Eversheds for 8 years. The emphasis was on managing a team with responsibility for recovery of costs on behalf of large external clients, predominantly insurers and government departments as well as financial organisations.

From November 2007, I embarked upon my own private practice with a dual purpose of providing legal advice to clients along side structures and bespoke tutoring. This was followed by a decision to work on a consultancy basis, continuing as a costs lawyer focusing on claimant work and concentrating on my tutoring skills, enabling flexibility to work around family commitments.

I currently have a broad range of private professional clients whom I teach face to face and online whilst also maintaining a traditional student base.

I am married with two boys. I love the outdoors. I was a member of the Welsh Surf Lifesaving Association for over a decade and am a dedicated surfer. Full driving licence. Fluent in Welsh and English. Interested in all aspects of global politics, human rights and the environment.
