About Jamie

I am a recent graduate from the University of Leicester in England. I have only just moved to Colorado but look forward to living here! My passion for teaching and history started when I was little. It is unfortunate that many people have such a distaste for history. It is often seen as boring or not relevant. My goal isn't to convert everyone into history buffs but show that it can be interesting and not torture to learn. For me, even as a history person, it can be very dull if one does not have a good teacher. A teacher that is excited and eager to teach can make all the difference.

My inspiration for teaching was my father. He showed me how to bring life to history and to find something interesting in things I found boring. It is my goal to bring my fathers life and passion that he gave me growing up, to anyone I can teach or help understand history. This started at my first real job as a cashier. I worked with a lot of high school students and I would help them understand concepts in their homework.

My first student was sort of a friend of a friend. I tutored him in History primarily but also helped him prep for college. As a recent university student I have unique knowledge on what to take in High School to prep for college, college searches, tips on financial aid and just generally how to approach college applications. I also helped him understand the material and speak with his teachers about questions he had. Knowing how to ask questions properly is just as important as getting better grades. Together we practiced his speaking presentations and worked on projects. I enjoyed it very much and he came to really understand his class much more.

As for my academic qualifications, I have a Masters in History focusing on Europe during the 19th century. I am proficient in American History, as well as classic civilization, specifically mythology. I also have a Bachelors in History and Religious Studies.

Please contact me at any time. I encourage students and parents to send me either text messages or emails for anything. Whether it is scheduling a lesson or just a simple question. I am always available for emergency homework help and will respond almost instantly!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Classics

I have taken 4 years of Latin, and have taken several Art History courses studying ancient Egyptian, Minoan, Mycenaean, Greek, Roman and Medieval European architecture. For my religious studies major in my undergrad I studied the mythology of ancient civilizations of the previously stated but also Sumerian, Babylonian and Slavic mythology.
