University Law Lecturer & Practising Advocate offers Law Tuition up to GDL/LLB Level.

Methodology

I will generally begin with a short assessment to enable me to assess where the student is in terms of their current knowledge. I will then address the fundamentals to ensure they are of a passing standard and then build upon that progress little by little. A recent student began at an E grade (a level) and progressed to a B grade within 4 months. She has an unconditional offer to study law at a very good UK University.

Background

I am an Associate Lecturer in Law and a Practicing County Court Advocate. I offer private tuition at competitive rates in all core areas of legal study, as well as many specialist options.

My students generally receive marks in top grade boundaries.

Transportation Fee : £10

Having known Philip for around 3 years and studied with him during this time I can say his grasp of most areas in common law at LLB is outstanding. Combined with his professional experience he can give insights into the practical application of the paper law.
