This is how 2 referees rated Joshua:
Hi I'm Josh and I am currently a first year medical student at University College London (UCL)
I have always had a passion for acquiring new knowledge and sharing this knowledge with other people. I have a particular interest in Biology and its relevance to almost all aspects of everyday life. In addition to a Biology A-level, I took Chemistry . I would be happy to teach both of these subjects to anyone who is taking GCSEs or A levels, is at a primary or secondary school level or is simply the casual learner with a passion for the subject
In terms of teaching experience, I mentored weekly three 15 year olds in GCSE Biology and Chemistry, for a period of roughly four months total. I found this to be a very useful experience as it allowed me to approach the same subjects in very different ways for each student. Beyond teaching, I also have worked with children and teenagers with special needs and learning difficulties whilst volunteering with Norwood Charity for a year. Both of these experiences have allowed me to further develop the communication skills to effectively convey difficult concepts in concise ways
My approach will be entirely dependent on the needs of the tutee, and what suits their unique learning style. For individuals at the stage of GCSEs and A-levels, the teaching will be focused on the requirements of their course. My teaching will focus on both the areas in which the student is encountering difficulties, along with ensuring their understanding of the whole course is sound, which may involve making tests, preparing presentations or going through past papers. In terms of teaching students who are at a primary school level, this will likely be less exam focused, and more to do with establishing a solid basic understanding of scientific concepts, so that they may be applied at any point. Finally for casual learners, this will be taught on the particular topic area of interest to the given.
