I have always had a passion for teaching and took part extensively in the Sixth Form mentoring programme in which I worked with younger students to help them understand the concepts they were struggling with in a more personal setting.

Hello! My name is Josh and I am in my third year of a Master’s degree in chemistry at the University of Birmingham. I have always had a passion for teaching and took part extensively in the Sixth Form mentoring programme in which I worked with younger students to help them understand the concepts they were struggling with in a more personal setting.


Having been a swimming teacher and volunteering at a summer camp for teenagers with disabilities for the past five years, I have gained a broad understanding of working with young people and helping them to develop their confidence and achieve their goals.


After experiencing disappointing results in my AS year, I was able to turn my grades around to achieve straight As overall and an offer to my first choice of university. Coming from this unique perspective I am able to give my students the encouragement they need and a push in the right direction to achieve their full potential.

About my sessions

In the first session I will focus on the areas that the student is struggling with and find out what they hope to achieve. Together, we will come up with a plan on how to manage these goals and ensure that they get the grade they deserve in the summer. From this I will produce a learning programme that will tackle the tutee’s weaknesses and turn them into their strengths.

In the first session I will focus on the areas that the student is struggling with and find out what they hope to achieve. Together, we will come up with a plan on how to manage these goals and ensure that they get the grade they deserve in the summer. From this I will produce a learning programme that will tackle the tutee’s weaknesses and turn them into their strengths.


I believe that students don’t learn whilst listening to me talk for an hour, so I prefer to give the students a framework and the understanding to come to the answers themselves. In my own studies I have found it vital that students had a comprehensive grasp of the basics so that they can build on this as they progress into more challenging areas.


Past papers are essential when revising for GCSEs and A Levels and so I will provide questions and the mark schemes so that the student understands how the marks are allocated for different questions. This understanding is crucial to getting full marks for each question and will be a key area to focus on as we approach the exams to make sure the student is fully prepared for every question in the final exam.
