About me

About me: 

Having graduated in 2016 with a high 2.1 in History, I successfully obtained a training contract with a top 50 law firm. I went on to complete the Graduate Diploma in Law and I am currently studying the Legal Practice Course. 

My Aims: 

I am particularly interested in working with bright students who struggle to structure their natural intelligence in a way that is adequately rewarded by, often confusing, essay mark schemes. I feel that having struggled with this myself I am ideally suited to helping younger students overcome these challenges. A crucial part of my job will be to help eliminate the “silly mistakes”, and help develop the skill of writing essays that can be easily recognised by examiners, who are often pressed for time, as deserving a high mark.

About my sessions

In general sessions will revolve around a concept, thinker or article. As preparation for the session, I might ask students to read a short extract or write an argument defending a position. The bulk of our time will be spent examining this in depth. This will help students build up contextual awareness and confidence which is crucial for subjects such as history and philosophy, where you are asked, in exams, to quickly build up arguments supported by precise and concise evidence.
