Reviews

Josh is a great Tutor, highly recommended!! I have had 5 lessons with him and have found them very helpful as they cover a range of subjects: study habits, useful tools for increasing productivity, essay/GLA writing, and more. Josh has great experience and insight in increasing all-round success. But especially within the IB context, he has proven to have some great tips and resources that have increased my productivity and allowed me to get a head start on the course content. Would definitely recommend it to anybody who is going into the latter years of highschool/preparing for their final exams. Brilliant and Fun Tutor! 5 Stars

Josh was a fabulous tutor for my son during year 12 for HL economics and English. His structured lessons can assist a student at any level improve their band level. He not only assisted in building knowledge but on how to present it in a concise and fluent manner. I would highly recommend Josh.
