I'm Holly - I studied Law at the University of Cambridge (Downing College) and can help with anything to do with Law at University: Oxbridge Admissions, The LNAT, Personal Statements and mentoring.
I enjoy teaching and have previous experience with Sixth Form students - successfully helping two students get into Cambridge to study Law (2014 entry).
My aim is to leave students in a better position in whatever subject or University admission based tutorial. I hope to dissolve queries or concerns about the subject and make learning the interesting practice it should be. For University applications I can oversee and advise the full process from UCAS, personal statements, admissions tests and interviews.
Most importantly, I want students to enjoy their tutorials and feel the benefit of additional learning and support. In 55 minutes we can go through an agreed amount of work and effectively use our time to maximise the tutoring you receive as a student.
How to Book
Via the Website you can book a 'Meet the Tutor' slot and/or send me a Webmail to arrange a Tutorial. I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions please get in touch!

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.see more
