Reviews (3)

Joshua was very professional, as well as creating an open and friendly atmosphere. My son enjoyed the session, which is unusual for him. We will be working with Joshua in the future.
Joshua is helping me read Great Expectations. He is very helpful. He is very punctual too.
Joshua is very knowledgeable and patient and has good control over how he allocates his time. Today I had my first lesson and he was very well prepared and organized. Joshua is competent, professional, and methodical. I am looking forward to learning more about English literature. Highly recommended!
This class is for anyone interested in the literature of Great Britain and the English speaking world, from beginners to advanced. The focus is to learn about, analyse and understand key works of English Literature. It is possible to focus on one period (such as Shakespearean, Modern, Medieval) or one area (such as Ireland, America, England). The class will use the works themselves, such as Dickens, Eliot, or Woolf, and will read and analyse in detail, with set essays and discussions. Even beginners are welcome.
This class is for anyone who wishes to practice or improve their English speaking, listening, reading and writing abilities. The class will focus on the practical, everyday use of English, with up-to-date, real-world material (such as recent news articles) and coursebooks. If preferred, the class can be strictly conversation. However, the usual process will involve one-to-one tasks, understanding vocabulary and grammar, and periodic progress reviews.

Send a message explaining your needs and Joshua will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you
Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

Matt
Reading & Writing Skills, Maths & English Language
Before I begin the Reading & Writing, Maths or English Language tutoring, I assess the child's needs and talk to them and their parents about the support that they would like. I aim to make my sessions as interesting and creative as possible to engage the children and ensure effective learning. The session is spent primarily with me teaching or working through a problem with a child. There's little to no benefit in a child working tirelessly through a task independently with me just sitting watching! As a father, a football coach and a former student with two A*s (one in Further Mathematics) and 5 A grades in my GCSEs (one in English Language), I understand how difficult it can be to support your own child in their learning. I will therefore also support with school homework and extra reading when required.

Improving Your Writing To Become A Published Writer
Using my wealth of experience in creative writing, production and publishing, I will teach you everything you'll need to know about your chosen area of writing, from turning an idea into a plan, right up to getting the finished article out there. I can help to bring your poetry to life, teach you the fundamentals of publishing a short story, or even help you to self-produce a play. I prefer a collaborative approach to teaching, where student and teacher work together to bring out each others potential. I like to tailor the sessions to their interests, getting a flowing conversation and finding the core of the students needs. I feel it's most important to develop a learning plan around the student.

Cinematic culture / acting for screen - theory and practice
Arts are essential in an individual's personal development. Some people find their way alone, and some have to opportunity to be guided, encouraged and pushed by someone who has been in the industry for years. To be taking this kind of course with me will consist in laying a strong foundation of knowledge in domains such as literature, performing arts and cinema, equaled by practice. However, considering that I will be working with young people, I will not bring to my class rules and techniques. Everyone has different interests and strengths and I intend to discover it, dig into and flourish their specific needs. Each student will have their own personalized schedule / training.
