Besides tutoring, I work as a freelance writer. I have been published in The Washington Post, the Financial Times, The Atlantic, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Haaretz and Reuters Foundation. I previously worked as a speechwriter in the UK Parliament.

Josh tutored my son for GCSE French, he was organised, efficient and knew exactly what my son required in order to prepare him for the exams. He taught him well, provided excellent materials and boosted my son`s confidence. He was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to requests. I highly recommend Josh.
