STOP THE PRESSES! YOU CAN HIRE ME AS A TUTOR!
Thanks to the wonders of technology, I am able to offer services as an online tutor! I am happy to tutor on English Literature, Theology/Religious Studies, and Gender & Sexuality. Tutoring is a one-to-one service where you, the student, are the focus. We’ll work together to achieve your goals. I’m able to tutor GCSE, A-level, and degree students.

“Laid back feel, felt comfortable and able to work”
“Great atmosphere and easy to speak up”
“Well-structured and democratic seminars … I always enjoy them!”
“There has never been a lull in class discussion. Jamie is engaging, professional and always interesting.”
Enthusiasm in research feeds directly into my enthusiasm as a teacher and lecturer. My teaching style is student-based; there is something extraordinarily exciting about the exchange and exploration of ideas. Seminars that I teach are extremely democratic but also meticulously focussed. As much as possible, we work with texts.
I have held positions at the University of Cambridge, the University of Exeter, the University of Bristol, Middlesex University, and the University of Suffolk. In addition, I’ve taught on a freelance basis or upon invitation at multiple institutions, academic and non-academic I have taught students of all ages and levels, on modules including:
