Maths, Physics, Oxbridge and much more

Cambridge Master of Natural Sciences assisting with all aspects of Oxbridge applications, as well as subject tuition in Mathematics, Physics and Music up to A-level (other subjects are available up to GCSE, please ask).

Great teaching begins with companionship, and I strengthen both my students' academic ability and self-confidence so that they can flourish. So often students already have good problem-solving skills, they just need to be encouraged out! Not only might a task be well within their capability, but then later a joy to have overcome. It is an enormous privilege to inspire an individual into a subject they may well love for life, and I would gladly invest much to afford anyone such an opportunity.

I read science at the highest level at Cambridge, eventually going on to publish my research in a professional journal. But my interests are broad: I have played piano for over 17 years and clarinet for 14. I play jazz and classical, and at present am self-teaching guitar and accordion. I have spent much time travelling and working abroad, and now nurture a range of languages including French, German and Cantonese. Longer-term I hope to work more with those on the fringes of society, addressing the need for strength of community from familial right up to a national scale.

As well as specific subject tuition, I offer assistance to those struggling more generally with academic work, due to pressures surrounding the school environment that may be academic but also social or organisational.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch for more information or to arrange a lesson, I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Josiah J

Joe has all that is needed to be a very successful and engaging tutor. Not only is he extremely well qualified academically (he has top flight A level grades and a good II.i degree (both Bachelors and Masters) from the University of Cambridge) but he is excellent communicator and shows a rare level of both compassion and enthusiasm. He graduated in Geological Sciences and would be excellent at any science or mathematical subject.
Joe is strongly motivated to help people and to share his love of learning.
