About

Hi everyone! I am currently a medical student undertaking the Doctor of Medicine (MD) postgraduate degree at Griffith University in the Gold Coast. I have graduated from an accelerated Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMedSci) with High Distinction, achieving Academic Excellence awards every year. I had achieved an ATAR 99.85 (OP1) and was Dux of Year 11 and Year 12. In addition, I had received Rank 1 and over 95% in Mathematical Methods, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Study of Religion, Business Management and English; all the subjects I had undertaken in Year 11 and Year 12.

I have 800 hours of experience in tutoring these subjects and am well versed in both the ATAR and OP systems. I specialise in helping students understand complex applications of subject knowledge and strategies to answer questions. I also consult students on university admissions into medical, science and health-related specialities, prerequisites and extracurricular activities to broaden a student’s portfolio for scholarship applications and character development. I have worked with many different types of students including high-achievers, well-rounded students, and students with learning difficulties.

If you are interested in receiving tutoring, mentorship or career opportunities, please message me. Thank you!

Reviews

Josh is an all around amazing tutor. He has helped me so much with my studies and has given me confidence with my academic abilities. He's really focused and driven and he really wants you to do well. He encourages you to think outside the box and to view problems from different perspectives in order to gain a full understanding of the concept. For someone who procrastinates, he has really helped me stay on track so that I am able to complete assignments before the deadline with time to spare. I have definitely improved the way I study for exams and assignments, picking up some helpful study tricks from Josh that has allowed me to better manage my study schedule and time management. He inspires me to stay on top of my work so that I may achieve great things with my studies, current and future.

Achieving good results in high school has always been a priority for me. Having Josh as my tutor, particularly in grade 12, has made it possible for me to improve my methods of learning and studying for exams. Josh takes into account my personal goals and is committed to helping me succeed academically. Every session is tailored to specific subjects and priorities. I have definitely seen improvement in my overall performance at school and confidence in areas which were a struggle. If you want to continue achieving or are prepared to work at your best level definitely contact Josh.

Character references

Josh began tutoring my son almost six months ago and has been a huge help for him. He is extremely reliable, flexible and friendly. The weekly sessions he has with my son ensures my son stays in the top bracket of his year and gives him the chance to extend his knowledge and clarify anything that he missed during the week due to the general busyness of the school environment.

Achieving great results in school has always been a major focus and priority for us as parents and helping and providing the best we can for our children.

Josh started with us from Term 2 as our tutor for both our girls now especially as they are both in high school now.

Josh has made it more enjoyable for them to both to learn in different methods from Josh and assistant in studying sessions for both assessments and exams has been less stressful on both the girls and us as parents.

Josh has taken into account both girls goals and is committed in helping them succeed academically.

We have definitely seen improvement in both our children overall in a short period of time and look forward to seeing higher results and achieving great goals.

So if you are looking for some assistance with your children book an appointment with Josh he would be more than happy to discuss and meet you just like he did with us before we commenced tutoring with him.
