I am a Trainee Solicitor who holds a Masters in Law and a First Class degree. I have experiencing working as Paralegal and acting as Chairperson of a Law Society. I am offering lessons in Law at und


My teaching methodology involves me initially finding out about what type of worker you are and what learning methods work for you. I then seek to work out exactly what areas you need help with and then proceed further by breaking down the learning material.

With previous Tutees I have used a traffic light system when working through topics within modules to help highlight what areas they feel confident in, what areas they are somewhat confident in and what areas they need the most help with.

I try to support my Tutees both academically and mentally by also offering career guidance and exam support to help deal with nerves, concerns and other worries students face.

I like to help students create clear timetables to complete work and often use a timetable myself to follow to help you keep both parties on track.


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 as paralegal 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


Rate for online lessons : £17/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £50
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £80


Cancellations must be within 24 hours of the lesson. Failure to do so may incur a charge for the agreed time for the lesson. I will always try to accommodate students who need to move the lesson due to unexpected circumstances.

Any time over the first free 30 minutes will be charged at the rate of £17 per hour.

Ellie is a very passionate and knowledgeable individual, As well as being friendly and understanding. I would highly recommend Ellie for any level of law tutoring!!


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!
