One of our best tutors, with excellent credentials. Joshua offers Basic computer skills lessons of the highest quality.
My approach to teaching and lesson planning is customisation. Every lesson is tailored to the individual student or group, whatever their current skill level and experience is in Blender 2.8+ or Autodesk Maya. From no prior knowledge to advanced but in need of refreshing, the structure of every lesson will be from the ground up, configured by the students' needs.
My teaching philosophy is patience and prudence in all things, that no one is a failure for not understanding something, and that help is to be always given when asked for.
All areas are covered, ranging across hard surface modelling, environment art, Grease Pencil, character creation (including modelling, sculpting, grooming, clothing, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging, animating, lighting, and rendering), scene layout, cinematography, compositing, object and camera motion tracking, and video sequencing (note the last three are only possible in Blender, not Maya).
I graduated from JMC Academy over two years ago, with a Bachelor of Creative Arts in Game Design, and spent my time there mastering the entire production pipeline in Maya for not only myself, but to volunteer in assisting my fellow classmates and other undergraduates along the way. Solving problems and troubleshooting became something I did for anyone and everyone who needed help, and teaching while doing so simply came naturally thereon.
Over the past year or so, I've also been deep diving into Blender 2.8 and up, in order to thoroughly acquaint myself with its rather extensive pipeline. In particular, its node based shading and compositing editors for procedural texturing and post processing, motion tracking and video sequencing suite, and modifier stack for procedural/non-destructive modelling.
Perfect! Joshua displayed a mountain of patience with my 20yr old with special needs, demonstrated professionalism in project guidance and has a commendable knowledge of Blender.
Perfect! Joshua has great energy, excited about our lessons and willingly shares his knowledge of the gaming industry. He is respectful and is very patient as I learn new skills. He has an in-depth understanding of Blender, which is a great bonus. I highly recommend Joshua.
Perfect! Joshua was very friendly and was able to spend extra time with me to help with my animations. Very skilled and knows a lot about animation using various animation software.

Good determination and passionate students I used to work with. Knowledgeable and technical in assisting projects. Recommended.
Josh is a very good tutor. He is friendly and explains everything in detail. If you email him he always gets back to you very fast. Josh has a lot of knowledge about 3D modelling and his expertise is invaluable for learning 3D modelling in Blender. I am very pleased with Josh as a tutor and would highly recommend him to prospective new students.
I can’t say enough good things about Joshua as a teacher. Josh has been a patient, professional and engaging tutor for my 9 year old daughter. Teaching a young child 3 D animation isn’t easy and he has made the whole experience interesting and fun. I would highly recommend Josh for any tutoring needs.
I had lessons with Joshua. He was extremely punctual and very knowledgeable and easy to follow. Highly recommended.
A patient, passionate and hardworking person, Joshua always makes sure I understood the concepts he's trying to show me before moving on. Energetic and eccentric he's always pushing the boundaries of his own skills and in turn, yours, and takes much pride in passing on his unique talents within his art form, regardless of your chosen 3D engine.
I've studied and worked with Josh in the past. Joshua is well versed with rigging and modelling.
He also has a very strong work ethic. No matter how hard the task is, he's willing to get things done.
The work that he produces is of a high standard, and I endorse others to learn from him.
I studied with Josh in university and throughout he has been a great help to me and other classmates with 3d modelling, rigging, animating. I've worked with him on only one project but the rigging and animated were spot on and professional. I think he would be a great teacher cause he loves helping people solve problems and showing them new and interesting ways todo things
As a lecturer myself I can confidently say Josh has the knowledge to help you with any 3D lesson.
He is a great all rounder and has a fantastic work ethic.
Josh strives to problem solve and has always been able to find his way around a problem, as demonstrated in classes where he was always there to lend a hand to fellow students.
Josh is a super friendly, energetic guy and his teaching style is a positive hands on approach.
If you are looking for someone who knows his stuff and is there to help you, Josh is your guy.
He seems to always know either how to fix a problem or what to look for to fix the problem, which when it comes to programs like Maya is very useful, such as when our groups director's Maya project crushed after hours worth of animation was spent on it and he managed to get us the file back with in afew minutes (this happened afew times) as well as knowing how to get the outcome you want in a faster and easier method most evident when it comes to modelling. Best of all if he doesn't know what you do you can bet he'll keep trying at it untill he gets is right! You can trust Josh!
Joshua is an excellent, patient, understanding and knowledgeable teacher. Whatever problem I have faced he has always been able to find a solution and recommend alternative methods if need be. Joshua’s knowledge of maya exceeds the knowledge of any average 3D modeller in the industry. He is open to questions and always speaks in a clear manner that is easy to understand. He is an inspirational teacher that is passionate about his industry and wants to help the next generation find their feet with a program that otherwise can be easy to get lost in. I would highly recommend him as a teacher as you would be more than equipped for the industry with Joshua as your teacher.
