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.

Testimonials

Josh has to be one of the most comprehensive and reassuring teachers I have ever been lucky enough to be taught by, and I can not imagine being at the level of ability I am at with language and literature without his effort which goes behind all classes and beyond my expectation. The triumph of my grades will always have to be shared with Josh, without which I would not be the student I am today.
