Joshua

Chelmsford Tutor

Hello! I am an English teacher and Head of Key Stage 3 English at an 'Outstanding' secondary school in London (rated 53rd in the country for pupil progress according to the Value Added Measure) and have also been personally graded 'Outstanding' as a teacher (both overall, and across all 8 individual Teachers' Standards) from external assessors at UCL/CCCU.

Prior to this, I studied Modern Languages at Oxford (The Queen's College), where I received both my Undergraduate and Masters degrees. Whilst there, I specialised primarily in literature, but also studied linguistics in some depth as well, giving me a broad platform of expertise, which frequently proves invaluable in my tutoring.

I am incredibly passionate about my subjects and teaching as a profession. I have extensive experience in teaching whole classes, as well as one-on-one tuition, and I enjoy both equally. My teaching has taken me across Europe, having taught English in both Germany and Poland.

I tutor English Literature and English Language (both at GCSE and A-Level), 11+ English, Primary English, KS3 English, English as a second language and German (at all levels). I am based a short distance from Chelmsford town centre, as well as KEGS and CCHS.

Tutoring Experience

» English Teacher in an Outsanding London secondary school (2015 - present)
» English Teacher at McGregor Language Schools & Maspex, Poland (2013)
» English Teaching Assistant at Leibniz Gymnasium (Grammar School), Germany (2008)
» Tutor at Brentwood Study Centre (2014 - 2015)

Tutoring Approach

I feel the tutor should always be flexible to the student, never adopting a one-size-fits-all approach. I love to get to know my students as individuals, and plan my lessons around their needs accordingly, identifying their strengths and weaknesses to really maximise their learning. I have taught children as young as three, to corporate CEOs. My approach to tutoring is therefore simply whatever works best for the tutee!
