About me

During my teaching career I have worked at schools in Scotland, Slovakia, Egypt, Chile, Vietnam and South Korea, teaching and leading a diverse range of subjects such as English Lang & Lit, Philosophy/ToK, Business, and others. I have extensive experience teaching various curriculums - (i)GCSE, AS & A-Level, IB MYP/DP programs, and the Advanced Placement - and I know well the pitfalls and expectations of these courses and their assessments.

I currently hold full registration with the General Teaching Council of Scotland, and am qualified with a BA, PGDE and CELTA. Now I work online with students who wish to overcome their academic challenges and achieve their highest goals.

Client Reviews

Samantha - Theory of Knowledge

Sometimes words cannot express fully my gratitude towards Josh' guidance. It is very clear that he has the wealth of experience in coaching his tutees. He is incisive in his comments, thorough taking my son through the content, structure of his TOK essay. More importantly, Josh is very patient and encouraging. That helps a lot in building confidence in my son who is weak in TOK and not particularly fond of this subject. Yet he enjoyed Josh' classes very much. With Josh's guidance and support, the end result was a huge improvement, further building my son's self-confidence. Must say Josh definitely has a spirit that draws out the best in his students. With deepfelt thanks, Samantha.

Great class, was really useful in identifying where to improve even though not everything was covered in 1 session.

My daughter found that Josh was very clear and gave her the support she needs in English. This is only our second lesson with Josh but already we can see he cares a lot that she does best that she can and go beyond! She’s looking forward to her next session with Josh.

My daughter has had a few lessons with Josh for her TOK and he has been very helpful, responded very quickly and I believe my daughter has learned some skills. Thank you for helping so quickly. Much appreciated. We will return for more lessons for the TOK Essay.
