I help hopeful medical applicants learn the techniques required to know exactly what to say for any medical school interview, panel or MMI. Additionally I help advise how to structure your personal statement as well as how to score highly in the UCAT.
I scored in the 96th percentile for my UCAT exam and am currently studying Graduate Entry Medicine at the University of Cambridge. I also hold a first class (hons) MSc in Chemistry from Imperial. I have been tutoring for seven years and have helped countless clients achieve their academic goals.

I am passionate about translating discoveries in the lab into better patient outcomes in the clinic. I developed data analysis and chemical biology skills at Imperial which allow me to understand developments in small molecule and biological therapeutics. I look forward to combining this with a diagnostic and holistic skill set at the University of Cambridge to offer patients the most cutting-edge medical care.

Placements and projects:
2019 Chemical biology research internship – University of Cambridge
I generated reusable protocols to study the potency of amyloid-β binders for the design of Alzheimer’s Disease PET tracers. This resulted in optimized assays and the triaging of several small-molecule candidates. (research manuscript awaiting publication).
2016 – 2019 Clinical work experience
2019 – 2020 Sponsorship & Alumni offer – Imperial College Sailing Club
I planned fundraising initiatives, then campaigned local business, club alumni, and philanthropists to raise money for a new fleet of boats for our society.
2018 Research studentship – McMaster University, Canada
I designed and synthesised covalent warheads and peptides for the capture of chemokines from human leukocytes.
2017 Undergraduate research opportunity – Welton group, Imperial College London
I synthesised and investigated the physical properties of novel diquaternarised ionic liquids.
2014 – 2020 Private tutor – self-employed & various agencies
Working with clients from KS3 up to undergraduate level, I help students achieve their academic goals in maths, chemistry, biology, and physics.
“Photochemical probe identification of the small-molecule binding site in a mammalian membrane-bound O-acyltransferase” (2020)
Exploration My passion for exploration has led me to organise excursions around the world. I have raised £12,000 for trips such as hiking across the Pyrenees and the Himalayas.
Sailing I regularly compete in team racing competitions across the country, which has strengthened my teamworking skills.
Volunteering I love being an active member of societies that deliver food to the homeless and pay visits to elderly hospital patients.
Art As a fingerstyle guitarist I enjoy performing arrangements of my favourite songs and making beautiful things through painting and wood carving.

Joshua is an excellent tutor, I would recommend him to anyone looking for clear and patient explanations of chemistry concepts. He is enthusiastic and teaches at a good pace while also making sure you understand every mechanism and solution. I'm confident that whatever level of understanding you have so far, you can benefit from choosing Joshua as a tutor!
Fantastic, down to earth tutor who helps make the most complex theories easy to understand. He makes learning fun again.
I highly recommed Joshua as a chemistry tutor. He has helped me throughout my undergrad chemisty degree, and i could not be more thankful to have him as a teacher. Josh is always looking out for his students, he is enthusiastic, caring and extremely supportive.
Josh is incredibly dedicated and enthusiastic and great at explaining hard concepts
Very talented individual with a knack for breaking down complicated concepts and techniques into easy-to-understand bitesize chunks. Highly recommended.
Josh is an excellent Chemist with a proven talent for teaching. His passion for the subject matches his academic ability, and because of this he brings Chemistry to life and is able to concisely explain even its more abstract ideas. I would recommend Josh as a tutor to anyone.
