The lessons will depend on which examinations and which age group your child is within. If not preparing for exams I will usually assess your child first and then plan a lesson journey to fit the progress that they may need to make. I am a warm and friendly tutor and try to make both the pupils and parents feel as at ease as possible in order to achieve the optimum result. I CAN TEACH ONLINE via bitpaper - a really brilliant interactive whiteboard app that includes video calling - the children are finding it incredibly easy and fun to use.
My name is Joseph; I studied English Literature at Durham University from 2000-2003. I then trained at LAMDA on the prestigious 3 year course from 2004-2007.
I have tutored and prepared children for 7+, 8+ and 11 + examinations for 5 years and have achieved them places in schools such as Kings Wimbledon, Fulham Prep, Dulwich College and many others. I have a range of resources, not least my parents with their background of both 40 years of teaching and 30 years of educational psychology.
As well as examination prep I have home schooled children from various countries entering the British school system. I have taught aspects ranging from phonics to 5 year olds to creative writing for 11 year olds. I have various references to support as well as current continuing pupils.
Recent Students and references quotes include:
"Joseph started teaching my husband's two boys (12 and 10) a few months after they moved in with us. Both boys were not used to studying and definitely did not want to have a tutor.
Joseph had a great relaxed way with the boys and was able to engage the boys and get them comfortable and concentrating immediately. He is extremely patient and encouraging and both boys (begrudgingly) enjoyed their time with him. The 10 year old made huge improvements in both Math and English and he helped the 12 year old with standard homework across all subjects and all his year end exams which he did well in. He also helped the younger one with his conversation skills and story telling which made a big difference in his day to day interactions.
I could not have imagined a better tutor for the boys and would recommend him to anyone. " - Mrs Morshedi

Wow, never underestimate what you can do in an hour!
Before starting I was a nervous wreck, but Joe put me at ease straight away. The ground I covered in an hour was incredible but, I also had fun doing it. Joe never made me feel 'bad' or 'stupid' but went at my pace, and made me think about performing in a totally new way. His knowledge is amazing and his methods really do work. I thoroughly recommend!
I met Joseph slightly after the start of my foundation in acting. I felt the need to have someone who could teach me in a one to one lesson to improve even more and reach my goal: getting into a BA acting in a drama school. He has a solid method and a systematic approach, we worked in many ways in order to achieve a great result. He gives the possibility to a student to fail, to grow and in the end he leads the student to success. His teachings have helped me getting into the BA acting at ALRA
Joseph tutored my daughter Anna for her A Level English Literature exam this year. Although he only tutored her for a few weeks prior to the exam, the work he did really helped her. Increasing her confidence by testing her knowledge of the subject, helping her understand historical context and to look at alternative views on the texts. In addition Anna really appreciated the discussion based approach.
Joe tutored my daughter in English Literature prior to her A2 examinations this summer. In my daughter's words, he was easy to get along with and understand, enthusiastic, passionate and very encouraging. She enjoyed her lessons with him very much. I would add that Joe clearly loved his subject, was extremely well read and was also patient, kind, reliable and adaptable: in short a thoroughly good teacher. I would highly recommend Joe Wilkins as a tutor.
Joseph tutored my daughter Megan a few months before her A Level English Lit exam.She found Joseph to be extremely patient, professional, caring, knowledgeable, reliable and enthusiastic but most of all he gave Megan the confidence and encouragement to fully understand the context of the texts by fully testing her knowledge and overall views at all times. Joseph is one of the best Tutors that I have ever come across,his knowledge on the subject was outstanding and I would highly recommend Joseph as a tutor.
