Hello there! My name is Jamie; I am currently a graduate student on the MPhil in Politics at the University of Oxford, and a recent graduate of the Msc. Political Theory at the London School of Economics. I have experience of teaching one-on-one and groups working towards their GCSE and AS levels, but I am also confident of helping those struggling with undergraduate/postgraduate work too.
My tutoring philosophy is to allow the student to appreciate the fact that they are probably better than they think, and that their ideas are most probably better than what they are currently putting on the page. The humanities are primarily concerned with offering an original interpretation or insight into a familiar text, demonstrating it clearly for the purpose of providing readers with a fresh perspective.
I can appreciate that humanities subject can be harder than a student initially realises, as for all the quotes, dates, or ideas they might have to remember, it still requires strong essay-writing technique, exam discipline, and most importantly, the student has to have an opinion on the matter!
Do get in touch if you need any further information about me, my academic background, my tutoring background, or anything else I may have neglected to mention.
