Information about Josh
Hello! My name is Josh, and I am a lecturer in Engineering and Programming at the University of Portsmouth. I completed my PhD studies in Electronic Engineering at the University of Kent and have a BEng in Computer Systems Engineering. My research focuses on biometric systems (facial recognition, fingerprint interaction, etc.) when investigating performance issues and human factors.
I have over eight years of experience in the teaching field. My expertise lies in electronic systems, programming languages such as C++, C, Python, Visual Basic and Matlab. I also teach Maths and ICT skills through the ECDL program.
I have years of experience teaching to both young and adult learners in a variety of environments. As an Engineering Ambassador, I aim to promote all aspects of STEM through the study and practice of using technology.
Just a little bit about me, I am very friendly, approachable and caring when it comes to the study of all my students. I enjoy outdoor adventures such as hiking, snowboarding and cycling when I can.
Availability: Weekdays - typically after 6 pm
Weekends - anytime
Please note that I do prefer to teach from home during my Term Time hours (Sep-Dec and Jan-March). Outside of these term time hours, I will be more flexible in my driving arrangements.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I am currently employed as a lecturer at the University of Portsmouth. I have over eight years of experience privately tutoring students.
Previously, I have been employed as an Academic Tutor at the University of Kent. I held the position of Academic Ambassador (DBS certified) where I have previously tutored A-Level Mathematics, Physics and IT at a number of academies around the Kent area. I was also a tutor on the Step Up program, a course that is delivered to Year 12/13 students to encourage applications to university.
Prior to university, I attended the Norton Knatchbull Boys Grammar School in Ashford and as such, I had passed the 11+ exam. Throughout my time as a secondary school student, I tutored some year six students in mathematics, non-verbal and verbal reasoning tests, which I am also able to teach.
