My teaching method is to assess my students' study materials and allow the students to make sense of the information. Some law subjects tend to be difficult to conceptualise in a practical sense. This is where my practical and educational experience will come of assistance to my students. Allowing law students the ability to understand how the material can be applicable in practice is imperative - and that is what I can provide.
I am extremely approachable and understanding of the pressures that come from Law School. Mental health is very important, so my teaching methods will be customised to ensure that my students are supported and not overwhelmed.
I am a recent law graduate. I will be admitted to practice in Victoria in September 2020. I have completed my practical legal training and can offer invaluable experience with putting university taught skills to practice. I have tutored La Trobe law students on a variety of law subjects such as property law, criminal law, remedies, torts law and constitutional law. I have also tutored law students to enhance their communication skills in preparation for mooting. Additionally, I have tutored legal studies at VCE level.
