I am a recent graduate from Cambridge law, having gained a first in all three years of my university education. I have two years of experience assisting students in their law university applications, helping them acquire places at Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, KCL, LSE and Queen Mary. I can support students in all areas of their application, which includes their personal statements, admissions tests (LNAT and CLT), and the Oxbridge interview process. I personally scored 36/42 in the LNAT, a score much higher than Oxford's typical requirement of 28-30, and have helped numerous students understand how to tackle the types of questions presented to them, regardless of their English ability.

Experience

I have three years of experience tutoring students of various levels and ages, ranging from A levels to GCSEs and Year 6 students. I have had two years of experience assisting students with their UK university applications, helping five students gain admission to Cambridge law in the last admissions cycle, as well as with UK boarding school applications, having helped students gain admission to schools such as Sevenoaks School and Tonbridge School.

My tutoring technique involves tailoring each session to the individual needs of each student, and I achieve this through using past papers (or other forms of assessment, if past papers are unavailable) to assess students' abilities before we begin, analysing their responses to identify their strengths and weaknesses. I believe that every student is unique in their own way, and the way in which they receive tuition should reflect that, playing to their strengths in order to help them most effectively understand the relevant content.
