About Law Tutor Online

I originally studied English Literature at London University, against the wishes of my father who was keen for me to study Law. Several years later I decided that perhaps he had a point, and took the Staffordshire University CPE at Worcester Law School, later completing an M.A. by research at U.C.E. I began teaching on the LLB and CPE programmes at Worcester, before moving on to FE colleges closer to home, teaching on a range of courses including Access to HE and Ilex level 6. Since 2004 I have also worked as a distance learning tutor, tutoring Ilex level 6 and LLB students. I have a particular interest in online and distance education, and my main focus at the moment is running Law School Online. I enjoy teaching small groups and individuals, and am always looking to find new ways of e-learning. I am an enthusiastic (though not always accomplished….) user of the Moodle VLE.

The challenges of Equality and Diversity

As we all know, Equality and Diversity should be firmly embedded in the curriculum and part of the lecturer’s planning and scheme of work. However, there are some little challenges that you just don’t think of when you’re planning a … Read More »
