I’m Adam, a tutor and started teaching just under ten years ago.
I have always had a passion for helping people however I can and teaching felt like a natural progression.
The first people to use my tuition services were back in 2010. Since then I have helped people for exams, general studies, job promotions as well as for fun.
I originally came from a legal background. I completed my A-levels at the age of 18. Shortly after then I started working in a law firm and continued working in law firms for a number of years.
While I was working at law firms I was studying on ILEX distance learning law courses (now called CILEX) as well as law college courses. I then did the Legal Practice Course and to cut a long story short I am now a Solicitor, albeit a non-practising one. (For info: I could pay for a practising certificate, but as I dedicate all my time to tuition, it would be silly for me to pay £1,500+/year for one).
The natural route would have been to work as a solicitor, doing a 9 to 5 role.
I decided however to try to start my own tuition business, using both my language skills as well as law skills. I have always had a passion for languages and wanted to do something that would combine both skill sets.
What about group art sessions?
Towards the end of 2018 a friend of mine who used to run art classes could no longer run the classes.
I am not an artist by profession, but have enjoyed drawing and painting for a number of years. I offered to take over and hence why I have been running them since January 2019.
I have been teaching since 2010 and have helped a large number of people to improve their skills.
As regards law qualifications, I am a non-practising solicitor who has passed degree level exams in:
- Contract Law
- Conveyancing Practice
- Criminal Law
- Equity & Trusts
- European Law
- Land Law
- Probate and Succession
- Public Law
- Tort Law
I have also completed the Legal Practice Course (post-graduate level).
Since completing the course I have helped many people. See my law customer reviews here.
As regards languages, most of my knowledge has come from private study, regular reading, etc. since doing exams around 18 – 19 years ago, so my qualifications do not reflect my current skills.
My language qualifications from 18- 19 years ago are:
- A-levels in Spanish and French, AS-Level in Italian and GCSE in German
Since doing those exams almost two decades ago, I have spent literally thousands of hours improving my skills, so that I am confident that I could pass exams at a higher level than those I did many years ago.
I have looked into doing exams that would reflect my current skills more. It however would be prohibitively expensive and impractical for me to do so. (It would most likely involve attending a full-time university course or attending overpriced courses abroad. It seems that it is very difficult to sit exams by themselves).
Please do not take my word for it that I understand the languages I teach. Please see my Language Tuition Customer Reviews page here.
