Information about John

Law tutor. 30 years experience of legal practice & advocacy. Most legal subjects covered. Mainly online tutoring nowadays (skype etc), so distance no object international coverage, all time zones. But personal tuition also available including `crash courses`, you come to me or I will travel if expenses covered, and group sessions also available, please enquire.

Examples of services:
- Face to face tutoring, online or in person. Usually focused on a particular topic or problem you have been set. £35 per hour or part, first hour with me free when you book an initial 2 hours.
- Outlines: You send me an essay etc problem and I send you back an outline of the points I would cover in an answer for your guidance. Very popular and probably the best way to go. Usually about an hour`s work (£35).
- Model answers: Starts like an outline, but I actuslly go on to write out my answer for you to use as inspiration. Say 2 hours (£70).
- Actual answers for you to submit as your own: I do NOT do these. They are cheating and if you just copy my work you WILL get caught!
- Fee indications are just estimates I will supply you with a real estimate for your needs on request.
- All fees payable in advance before work commences. Cancellations / noshows charged in full unless cancelled 7 days in advance.

Availability: Any time.

Willing to travel: 50 miles

Experience: As part of my legal career I have always enjoyed tutoring / coaching / training / mentoring etc. Generally helping young people (and some not so young!) learn about the law and progress in a career in it.

Very helpful, mature and very practical approach

Although perhaps helpful on the structure of an answer, not so helpful with the law. He claimed that he was knowledgeable in the marine insurance area of law, however when I got my document back, there were just comments on stylistic errors (that was not the purpose why I was looking for a tutor at all) In addition to this, I was charged £70, which he said took 2hrs.

I am not very happy.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for the feedback.
3 points I think:
1. You will get fewer comments the better I think the work is, but that doesn`t mean it hasn`t been checked, it is a compliment to your work.
2. I do say on my profile that I particularly help with structuring etc your work rather than the law as such.
3. As a general rule I`ve heard it said that its about 1000 words an hour for reviewing. This was 3000 words but you only got charged for 2 hours.

Gave a lot of wrong/bad information in helping to answer an essay question

Tutors Response :

Hi thanks for the feedback. I am not sure what you mean precisely as you have not raised this with me before. I have been in the profession 30+ years so I think I am entitled to claim that I know more than my students, but it is the student`s work that gets marked not mine.

Helped me with writing my essay outline, and was quite useful. Overall tutor is nice but a bit money-minded.

Tutors Response :

I was pleased to help you twice, and as I recall you wanted a third and then did not pursue it further. Everything on the internet is payment in advance nowadays.
