“I had been trying for three years to get a training contract before I met Geoff. I had done about 30 interviews and completed three vacation schemes and was at a complete loss. I had absolutely no confidence in my capabilities and got incredibly nervous in interviews. Geoff completely transformed, not just my interview technique, but my belief that I deserved a training contract. Geoff was focused, went completely above and beyond what was required and what I paid for. He answered all my emails (which were many), always did the numerous sessions with me at times which worked with my hectic work schedule, supported me through the two vacation schemes I completed this year whilst working with him, and provided invaluable insight into commercial issues, into the firms themselves and had the uncanny knack of predicting the topics the interviewers would cover. Throughout the vacation schemes I did, he continually helped and became a sounding board on everything I struggled with or wondered about. I am grateful for his support and certainly would not have walked away this year with two training contract offers – the one I accepted being from an incredibly prestigious American law firm. I would recommend Geoff to everyone! He is absolutely brilliant and will put you in the best position possible to get an offer” – Emily
“I used Expert Tuition for my training contract application and interviews. The service provided was seamless and professional. I was given practical advice and assistance which significantly improved my applications. My mentor was an expert in his field and his advice and encouragement gave me so much confidence in the interviews. My Mock interviews were brilliant, after each round I was given feedback on how to improve not only my answers but also the delivery of my answers. I will definitely use Expert Tuition for my future application” – Zakia
“I was recommended Expert Tuition by a friend who had used them to secure her Training Contract. I had an upcoming vac scheme which I felt completely unprepared for, Geoff was extremely informative professional and empathetic. I felt more capable after our phone consultation alone because of the industry experience he had. The tutor (Thomas) I was given was excellent. He had prepared extensively for our session, gave me useful tips and advice and was extremely personable. The guidance was practical and spot on. I went into my scheme with confidence and enthusiasm as a result which no doubt led to my training contract offer. I would say what really stood out to me about their services was a genuine willingness to help – in a field that can be quite cut-throat it was really great to have non-judgemental and supportive guidance” – Aisha
