Information about Josh
A previous English teacher for 3 years, teaching Year 7 - Year 11 English language and literature. I have excellent experience with the new grade 1-9 system and understand the requirements for the grade boundaries. I have taught the new AQA GCSE specification (English language and literature papers) and I have also taught the Edexcel GCSE English literature and language. Having tutored for 2 years, I have received excellent personal testimonies from various tutees.
I`m motivated to provide tailored and unique tutoring to ensure tutees experience progress and development whilst finding a passion for English. I am experienced with all aspects of English secondary teaching.
Availability: Weekday evenings. 6-8pm
Saturday mornings 10-12pm
Willing to travel: 1 miles
Experience: I graduated the Teach First leadership development programme and have taught a range of classes which gives me the required experience to tailor tutoring sessions to a range of different abilities.
My knowledge of English will ensure that I can support pupils of all levels and as I have previously worked at different secondary schools, my knowledge of the curriculum change is excellent and I have designed whole schemes of learning for the new GCSE specification. I was also part of the school improvement group, ensuring I was at the leading edge of new teaching and learning ideas.
Feedback For Josh (4)
Amazing teacher smart, patient, and a great communicator. Always asked ahead and prepared accordingly - bringing detailed lesson plans + notes. Brought my little brother up several grades (predicted, via mocks). One of (if not THE) best tutors I`ve had the pleasure of meeting. A rare kind, would recommend to anyone/everyone.
We are very happy with Josh, he has boosted our daughters confidence in Year 10 GCSE English. Always prompt and polite and extremely knowledgeable. Would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Very good. Understands the requirement of my son for his GCSE course.
Josh is a fantastic, patient and highly competent English tutor. Although, my son has only had his first session with Josh, I feel that Josh was very quick to understand exactly what is needed and how to deliver it. He arrived on time and was fully committed to my son and thoroughly made sure that he knew what his next steps were. I would highly recommend Josh as a tutor!
