About Joyce

Academic mentoring for Oxbridge, Russell Group & Ivy League

Dare to achieve more? Then I can help. I am an Oxbridge graduate with 11 years of tutoring and mentoring students to the highest grades at GCSE and A level and into Oxford and Cambridge. I use unique mentoring methods to stretch students to achieve their academic goals by cultivating critical thinking, logical thinking, structured thinking and a good work ethic. I have a friendly yet disciplined approach and I immensely enjoy working with students to unlock their potential, overcome their perceived limitations and exceed their own expectations.

I operate in London and internationally (using online platforms) to provide students with tailored plans for entering their chosen schools, Oxbridge and/or Russell Group universities and (thereafter) careers. I am motivated by positively impacting lives, creating equality of opportunity and promoting social mobility.

I am a social entrepreneur, having founded the Oxbridge Mentoring Scheme (OMS) in 2006. The OMS is a syllabus that runs alongside schooling and prepares students for entry into Oxford and Cambridge universities. My success rate stands at 52% (more than twice the average success rate) with all others securing places at top UK universities. For 10 years, I was a school governor at one of England’s leading academies where I helped set up a similar in-house scheme. I now extend the benefits of the OMS by running similar academic programmes in-house at schools around the world.

UCAS Brainstorming

Written by Grace B
Joyce has prepared a very organised and effective booklet to get my daughter through her university application. Her teaching style is reflective and friendly. She feels much clear about what she needs to focus on after the lesson.
Thank you very much!
Better understanding and clearer directions

OXBRIDGE Admission

Written by Irina S
Great one to one tutoring. Joyce gave my son a mock Oxbridge interview with detailed feedback on areas for improvement. Her UCAS brainstorming approach immediately afterwards enabled a clear structure which helped him create a solid backbone for the personal statement and ensured that every sentence counted. Her advice on how he could use a mnemonic for structuring his essays has enabled him to prepare himself for the Cambridge pre-assessment written test. Joyce is a great mentor and ambitious for her students. I highly recommend her.
