Private LNAT Tuition 2024/25

LNAT Tutor

Hello! My name is Catherine Robinson, and I offer one-to-one LNAT tuition that covers both sections of the exam.

Section A: Multiple Choice Questions

LNAT success relies on an understanding of the thought process behind answering each type of question as much as it relies on natural aptitude for critical reasoning. Without an awareness of the different skills that are being tested by each type of multiple choice question, it is easy to get the wrong end of the stick.

Through an exploration of the meanings Pearson assigns to words such as 'premise', 'conclusion', 'deduction', 'assumption', 'assertion', 'interpretation', and 'inference', my tutoring equips each student with the background knowledge needed to succeed in the LNAT exam. 

The theory side of LNAT tuition is an often overlooked but crucial component. As such, my tutoring always starts by familiarising each student with the steps to go through to solve each type of question. We will then put the theory into practice by working through sample questions that exemplify the different types of question that students can be asked.

Section B: Essay Help

There is a simple LNAT essay structure to follow that ensures you write a persuasive and effective essay. During our sessions, we will work through each part of that structure in depth before I set you essays to write as homework.

I will coach you through each step of the process, including selecting a question, planning the essay, and then writing it using a tried and tested structure that is easy to follow and apply.

What is a 'good' LNAT score?

Most students want to know the score they should be aiming for, but it is very difficult to say a precise number as this will vary year to year depending on the difficulty of the exam.

However, to shed some light on this question, the mean average LNAT score for an Oxford applicant in 2021 was 23.02 out of 42 according to the university's published reportShortlisted candidates who were invited to interview had an average score of 26.46, while those who received an offer averaged 27.68.

As you can see, candidates are not expected to get full marks (or even close to full marks!) to be offered a place at Oxford. 

I advise my students that they should really be aiming for a score in the high 20s, although many of my students score within the 30s range. Universities will also consider a student’s grades, personal statement, and LNAT essay when deciding whether to make an offer. 

Free consultation meetings

I offer free 15-minute consultation meetings where we can get to know each other and determine if one-on-one coaching is right for you. During this time, we can discuss your specific needs and develop a tailored plan to achieve your goals.

About me

I achieved a score of 31/42 in my LNAT in 2017. The average score that year was 17/42.

I began my Law degree in 2017 at Durham University. After graduating with First Class Honours, I became a full time tutor. The subjects I tutor are: University Level Law, LNAT prep, A Level Law and A Level Business.

I am passionate about teaching and find the process of helping others grasp difficult concepts enormously rewarding. I take a lot of pride in my work and always aim to reply swiftly to emails from each and every parent or student - usually within a few hours.

Having worked with more than 350 students and completed over 4000 hours of 1:1 tuition, I have lots of experience and can effectively adapt each session to the individual student.

Most of my LNAT students apply to Oxford or Cambridge and consistently achieve LNAT scores that exceed the average required for admission to these universities. Even if you are not considering Oxford or Cambridge, I would highly recommend applying - and I will guide you through the process. Many capable candidates do not consider Oxford or Cambridge as they assume it is far more difficult to get in than it actually is. If you are applying to Russell Group universities such as LSE, UCL, Durham, Leeds, Bristol etc, then it is very likely that you have the ability and the predicted grades to earn a place at Oxford or Cambridge.

Lastly, I currently hold an enhanced DBS certificate as I have tutored in schools as part of the National Tutoring Programme (NTP).

Pricing

Each session lasts 45 minutes, which I have found to be the ideal duration for effective LNAT preparation. This time frame allows for the intense focus required without overwhelming students as performance typically declines after 45 minutes. I recommend scheduling either one or two 45-minute session(s) per week instead of longer sessions.
Typically, it takes about 10 sessions to thoroughly cover all material, though most students opt for 12-15 sessions for added practice. For those with limited time, I also offer a crash course that can be completed in 5 sessions.
10 sessions: £500 (£50 per session)
5 sessions: £275 (£55 per session)
Pay as you go: £60 per session
