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.

Dear Mr. Joshua, I would like to express my gratitude to a wonderful person and a professional teacher in his sphere. This short text is personally for you. I was looking for a great teacher for extra lessons after school due to the fact that I was not able to get few things in business studies by myself - and I have found you. Personally, I am very grateful because the way you are teaching is awesome. The staff that was difficult at the beginning, was not difficult at the end for me. You are always open and ready to provide any help needed any time possible. Your attitude and attention towards pupils/students is extremely beneficial. Everything was fully covered with amazing explanations for solving tasks together. Even when I was out of mood, you can easily cheer me up. His jokes are just perfect. This teacher is always hardworking, skilled in communication, careful listening, collaborating, adapting to any work, empathetic and patient. All characteristics such as: value in real-world learning; exchange of best practices; and a lifelong love of learning - are all about him. Being a tutor is hard however you put in a lot of effort in this field. Hope that you will grow more and achieve desired results that you deserve!!! Thank you :)
