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.
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.
A level: £17.00 per hour
Undergraduate/GDL/Casual Learner: £20.00 per hour
Proof Reading: £20.00 per 1000 words.
