« 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! »

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.

Mrs G Skeens

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.

P
Phelan

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.
