Durham finalist law undergraduate student teaching English Literature and History up to A-Level

Methodology

I tailor my lessons to the student, to ensure that I can meet your needs effectively. If we're dealing with complex concepts, my lessons are to guide you in breaking down those concepts into less complex sub-topics, to ensure you have a good understanding. From there, we can build up your skills in knowledge, analysis and evaluation, to ensure you're getting those higher marks.

Background

I am a Law undergraduate in my final year at Durham University, having attained A*A*A at A-Level, and consistently ranking in the top 10 students of my university cohort.

I've been giving lessons for the past 2 years, and the results of my students have dramatically improved as a result.
