I am a teacher passionate about passing on my love of learning to my students. I love discussing theoretical issues in Geography, English or other related fields but more so I love exploring how these ideas look in the real world - whether through case studies in Geography or through close textual analysis in English Literature for example. Even though I help my students to achieve the best possible results in exams, I believe teaching is about more than just learning what to write in an exam and nurturing a genuine curiosity for the subject is of tantamount importance. I tailor my sessions to the interests of my students but I also hope to introduce students to new concepts, such as Glaciation, Geopolitics or Fin de Siècle Literature, where possible and ignite a lifelong interest of questioning how they fit into the broader picture of our complex, intriguing world.
I have taught in a number of schools in the last several years, including a top-performing grammar school in West Yorkshire and an English international school in Budapest. I have taught and tutored in person and online for a wide range of student abilities, from students who wanted help with essay structure and exam technique to others who wanted to achieve the very highest grades to prepare themselves for university. I teach a number of exam boards and I am also an examiner for AQA and Cambridge.
I predominantly teach A Level and have significant experience teaching both Human and Physical Geography for the A Level and International A Level. I currently teach mostly Cambridge A Level and iGCSE though I have previously taught AQA and continue to mark for the exam board. In addition, I am familiar with WJEC, Edexcel and OCR examinations as well as IB.
I have successfully tutored in GCSE/iGCSE/MYP English Literature for a number of years too and have much experience with A Level and International A Level, particularly Cambridge and AQA. I have tutored a wide range of texts such as A Woman of No Importance, Regeneration, The World's Wife, Much Ado About Nothing, Blue Remembered Hills, A Room With A View and many others, however I am happy to discuss any texts and I am a voracious reader myself.
we went through my Past questions, great way learning content in a specific and efficient way, thank you Jamie !
"I took Geography A-level and had a tough battle with it until I found Jamie! I could not recommend him enough as a tutor, his explanations are clear, there is nothing he doesn't know and he's always made sure I understood everything as we did it. We worked through millions of past papers which really helped boost my confidence and took me from achieving a grade U in my mocks to a final grade B in my alevel ! Thank you Jamie!"

"Lessons with Jamie are informative, interesting, and fun! Jamie tutored me geography and he taught me the importance of not only answering the question, but making links to wider ideas within the field of geography. The depth of knowledge Jamie has given me is invaluable and I will always remember them moving forward in my higher education career. Thank you Jamie!"
