Solicitor and PGCE Tutor offering tuition in all areas of law. Face to face or online.

Methodology

The lessons are planned and agreed with the student and aims and objectives clearly identified. The sessions are diverse in practice using different teaching techniques suited to the student's individual needs. As law can often perceived as a burdensome subject I pride myself in being able to bring the subject to life.

Background

I'm a Solicitor and PGCE Tutor and have been teaching for more than 12 years. I teach all aspects of law and levels of study (GCSE - Post Graduate). I have successfully taught hundreds of students who exceeded their potential and went on fulfill their potential.

Owen's CV

Summary
A Costs Lawyer and PGCE Tutor with 20 years experience in all aspects of Litigation having initially taught Law, Politics and English in Cardiff at GCSE, AS AS Undergraduate and Post Graduate 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 specialise in Law, Politics and English.

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.
