Oxbridge applications and interviews
I have over five years experience teaching and have taught the three Sciences and Maths from GCSE to A-Level since I sat the exams myself. As well as private tutoring, I have given lessons in Chemistry and Maths to large class sizes at summer and Easter schools.
I have successfully helped students gain places at Oxbridge from both independent and non-selective state schools.

My Approach to Private Tuition
True learning occurs when a student is both engaged and inspired. My students come from a broad range of backgrounds and each have their own individual learning style. My job is to find how each student ticks and then adapt myself to that. My approach is is proactive, my molecular modelling kit is always by my side and I like to break many things down by drawing different diagrams.
Pace is a problem frequently encountered by students at school. They find themselves either overwhelmed by content, or bored and distracted if a class is moving too slowly. One-to-one tuition keeps everything at a pace that suits the student, while I push them to enrich their learning with outside resources.
My broad academic and professional history allows me to teach a student to get the best grades in their exams, while offering sound career advice for an enriched future.

“Joshua has really helped my son and continues to do so, he took him from an ungraded to a C grade in two sessions at AS level Chemistry. He is now working to get him to a higher level for his exams in May. I would definitely recommend him” (Sandra, Mother of A-Level Chemistry student)
