Approach to Teaching"After various school placements, such as teaching classes at St Aidan`s (ranked amongst the highest achieving comprehensive schools in the country), for over five years I have helped a multitude of pupils ranging from as young as six through to mature students. Having experienced rigorous training, I am an Examiner for a major board and have relished the challenges of marking candidates` papers. I feel this gives me an invaluable perspective when preparing my students for their own tests. Both students and parents have offered positive feedback from the great improvement in their grade as a result of my tuition. For example, a student`s grade in A Level Physics improved from originally an E to an A after my tuition. As a private tutor, I have taught one-to-one (and small group) lessons with a host of students, each with differing needs. I have enjoyed working with each individual to identify the specific areas of their subject(s) that they struggle with. Through my calm and patient approach, students` confidence in their abilities increases and their understanding deepens. I have enjoyed helping students through difficulties with their subjects while endeavouring to find and solve the problems students have in their understanding to give them a firmer grasp of the topic. I am familiar with the different examination boards, particularly AQA, Edexcel, OCR, CIE and ISEB. Covering Reasoning where desired, I have prepared students for 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations as well as the STEP and PAT tests required for the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. With my tuition, students have gained entrance to the schools of Aldenham, Fulham Prep, Harrogate Ladies, Sedbergh, Charterhouse and Latymer. After my tuition, candidates attained the necessary grades for their university offers, including from Oxbridge, to study courses relevant to our preparation. I also have experience aiding with IB and professional skills tests together with Pre-U and IGCSE."

He worked with me for my QTS level Maths exam from a hopeless position to gaining the qualification in a matter of months. He patiently worked through my areas of weakness and showed me techniques and approaches to improve my speed, accuracy and confidence.

TestimonialsJoshua has provided us with these testimonials:
|From Jeremy, parent: Joshua has been providing tuition for one hour each week to my twin sons, Michael and Henry, on a continuous basis since January 2010. At that time they were 14 and in year 9 at Harrogate Grammar School. They are now 16 and in year 11, and are about to take their GCSE exams. Joshua has tutored them in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology, alternating between them as the boys needs have required. The academic results both boys have consistently achieved at school have been very satisfactory in Maths and the three science subjects, namely A* and A grades. I am very grateful to Joshua for his significant contribution in helping them to achieve these excellent results. Both Michael and Henry have chosen Mathematics and Physics as A-level subjects for their two Sixth Form years 2012 to 2014, and consequently we look forward to having Joshua\s weekly tutorials to supplement and reinforce their school work for some time yet. Josh is a person the boys get on with easily, as he is still in his 20s and was himself a student at Harrogate Grammar School before going to York University to obtain his First in Physics. He is a very pleasant young man, punctilious about his arrival time, and consistently reliable. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Josh as a private tutor to parents who want good academic results for their children.|
|From Nicholas, student: (A-Level Physics) Very knowledgeable, helped me understand some of the more difficult aspects of the course.|
|From Annabel, parent: (GCSE Chemistry) The best thing we could have done was to use Joshua as a tutor shortly before a chemistry exam. He has the ability to quickly find where problems are and sort them out. My son described his methods as eally good, high praise indeed from a teenager. Our very sincere thanks, wed have been stuck without you. 5/5|
|From Shaun, parent: (GCSE Combined Science) Joshua is a superb tutor and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Science does not come naturally to our son Conor, it is a struggle and he has to work hard at it. Joshua was immediately aware of this and his encouraging, supportive approach and ability to explain things in an easy to understand way has increased Conors confidence levels and provided motivation. Conor enjoys being taught by Joshua and feels at ease in in his presence. What seemed to Conor impossible before now, seems less daunting with Joshua\s expertise and careful guidance. 5/5|
