Hi! I'm Jamil! I love to teach, because it allows me to share my loves and interests with students, hear their perspectives and watch them achieve their goals and become passionate about new ideas...


I research theology and political theory with a focus on Jewish 19th century history but am also a poet, musician and artist.


My MA in intellectual history is a window into my multiplicity of interests; it allows me to consider developments in artistic, cultural, musical and popular history.


Music is my major love, I was the timpanist last year in the premier of Charles Gonoud’s Opera, Polyueucte and also play extensively in folk music groups throughout the capital.

I write and perform and have run reading groups and poetry nights. I have also taught music, both as individual tuition, and in groups.

About my sessions

Central to my approach is identifying loves and memorable points for the students (even if they are strong dislikes!)

Whether dates, pictures, or figures, I try to find hooks upon which to hang ideas and information when trying to fill in a larger picture.


Aided by breadth of knowledge/interests, I draw on extensive repertoire to find these hooks, and offset difficult learning processes with engaging insights/ activities which establish confidence for any Qs.

I measure progress via the student's ability to deal with any question from personal/ unforgettable knowledge, as well as the more quantifiable process of the total material needed for the exam.


Having a musical/artistic background, I present genuinely difficult concepts and processes in imaginative ways-rearranging things in lots of different ways to find one that sticks.


As a philosopher, I am also able to be precise, and as a poet, analogy is a useful tool, for making clear something that might not appear obvious as is!

Jamil is an outstanding tutor. My daughter, Bella, was feeling under confidant in a couple of areas of her course. Jamil took care prior to the session to drill down into exactly what she wanted to cover and was able to not only assist but also instill the confidence she needed. Each session was thoroughly prepared and as Jamil is an excellent communicator the most was got out of each tutorial. This was our first experience of online tutoring and it was extremely positive. Bella achieved her A* and secured her place at Cambridge. I can not recommend Jamil highly enough.
