I am currently preparing a student for her KS3 English exam as well as helping her with her pronunciation. In addition to this I am currently tutoring two KS2 students in maths and English, and another student in GCSE English. In the last academic year I helped three students with their English GCSEs, one with an iGCSE in English and a student with her As-Level in Music.

I had Josh help me with my AS Music because I was struggling with a few things on the syllabus. Since I started lessons with him my confidence and interest in the subject improved greatly and I was able to achieve much better grades. Josh was able to answer all my questions as well as giving me additional information on what I was working on, which I was always interested to hear about. He prepares himself extremely well for each lesson and I couldn't be more grateful.
