About me

Hi, my name is Holly. I studied Law at the University of Cambridge - Downing College. I will be studying for a Masters at Oxford University in 2017-18. I have tutored well over 30 students in a number of legal and non legal subjects. I am a productive and hard working tutor and welcome any specific questions about your needs. In tutoring I can help with anything to do with; - Undergraduate Law - Dissertation and Coursework support - University Law Applications - Oxbridge Admissions (Law and Any Subject) - The LNAT - The Cambridge Law Test - A Level: Law, History, Philosophy, Politics - GCSE: History, Philosophy, Politics, English and Religious Studies. Look forward to hearing from you, Holly.

About my sessions

My sessions are highly productive and well structured. I adapt the structure dependent on what subject or skill we are tutoring. The following are provisional guides as to a typical session: The LNAT: The student and I usually opt whether to go for x1 hour focused on the Essay Section (Part B) or the Multiple Choice Section (Part A) - sometimes we will do a split session. If we opt for the essay session we will usually attempt x3 essays which is a very productive rate. Firstly, we will discuss the question, e.g. "Should judges be elected or appointed?" and the merits of the question. Next, we develop a plan of Paragraph 1, Paragraph 2, Paragraph 3 and a Conclusion. When attempting multiple choice questions we take a past paper and go through each section and I explain answers to students that cause confusion. Law Undergraduate: Usually we will go over either a seminar or a couple of lectures in any given topic, for example: criminal law. We will discuss the set work questions, explain any confusion in the topic and apply the relevant law. Dissertation or Coursework Support: These projects are independent work but through tutoring we can discuss structure, resolve any ambiguities in the question and discuss the merit of ideas. Dissertation support is often in pursuit of a 1st class or distinction mark.

Firstly, the most important thing with the LNAT multiple choice section is practice. Going through questions is the best way to ensuring a high score in the multiple choice. This does not simply mean going through every question paper but instead developing a successful technique in approaching the questions. Once you have developed this technique (which I can coach with) and have practised the test questions you are likely to place highly and help secure your University admissions for Law.

Example Question (multiple choice):

2. The writer here uses the word ‘conservative’ to mean:

(a) consciously sympathetic to the elites
(b) a group on the right of a ‘spectrum of thought’
(c) those who are ideologically ‘sound’
(d) those educated at private schools
(e) a group who understand the ‘national interest’ 

Example Question (Essay):

1. "Would you agree that travel and tourism exploit poorer nations and benefit only the richer ones?"

For the Essay Questions the most important factor is learning to develop a coherent and persuasive argument. Knowing additional content (via research, the news etc.) is important but the vital factor is the skill of essay writing so that no matter what the question is, the answer you produce is excellent. 

Introducton: outline your main argument (which can be either yes or no) in answer to the question. For example: Tourism undoubtedly exploits poorer nations to benefit richer ones. This is reflected in the exploitation of resources to accomodate tourism, the erosion of loal communities and culture and volunteering to developing countries for short periods of time - also referred to as 'volutourism'. 

Main Body: Make further points to support the introductory statement and also acknowledge competing arguments. One could be that tourism provides 'development' to regions that would otherwise not benefit from investment. Address this counterargment and keep developing the thrust of the essay - e.g. this short term development (hotels, transport etc) can often make the busiest parts of the reigon busy and leave the surrounding towns and villages with no transport infrastructure.

Conclusion: Conclude using the bulk of the argument outlined above and concisely summarise your main points.
