I greatly enjoy individually tutoring students, including online tutoring by distance learning and preparing them for exams using my own tried and tested resources to help them reach their full potential. At my college, I am a Tutor to mixed groups of students, including assisting them with UCAS applications and the Cambridge Law Test. I believe passionately in helping and encouraging students of all levels and backgrounds to achieve their maximum potential and I am patient, student-focused, flexible and adaptable in my teaching methods, aiming to enthuse and inspire students to succeed. I have regularly gained outstandingly positive student feedback on my teaching and my students achieve outstanding Law results which pleases and satisfies me. Some of my key strengths lie in supporting individual Law students and enthusing them in their studies in what for most is a new subject that can be challenging and content-heavy. By doing this, it builds their confidence in realising what is needed for a successful exam answer and ensures their success.
