About Me

I grew up in Brighton and taught in the area for 3 years (97-2000) then moved to Perth Western Australia and taught there for 17 years before returning to the UK in 2018. From 2020-2023 I taught A-level Geography at a local college and was Head of the Geography Department for 2022-23. This year I have been tutoring and running in-person revision courses for GCSE and A level.

Whilst in Australia in 2018 I won an Unsung Hero Award: Teacher category in the Australian Teacher HQ Magazine and in 2016 my Geography class won an award for being in the top 10% of classes in Western Australia.

I love to play tennis and travel. I like to use my travel experiences where I can in my lessons with images and experiences that link to the course. I have been to all 7 continents including Antarctica.

Tutor Experience

3 years UK 97-00 Geography and Humanities

2018-2020: supply work, revision courses with various companies, tutoring

I like to use Powerpoint in my lessons, it gives me a structure so I don't leave anything out and lots of visuals which can be really helpful in Geography, so diagrams, charts, maps, photos of places being discussed.
The follow up with past exam questions and can discuss methods for answering them. Happy to mark an essay between lessons to give additional feedback.

Topic Expertise

Geography KS3, KS4, KS5

especially GCSE and A level. Any exam board is fine as long as I have time to prepare.

Without a doubt one of my favourite teachers! I can’t think of any fellow students who’ve have a bad word to say about Mossy. Joel makes lessons fun and interesting, he’s thoroughly passionate about Geography and it shows. 10/10 recommend him if you want to ace Geography and enjoy learning the subject matter. P.S. He’s a top bloke too.
