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+, Autodesk Maya, and/or Unity. 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.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualified and response guaranteed. Joshua will plan your first lesson with care.
I graduated from JMC Academy a year ago, with a Bachelor of Creative Arts in Game Design and have spent the last three or so years mastering the entire production pipeline (modelling, sculpting, grooming, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging, animation, VFX, lighting, rendering, compositing, and programming) in Maya and Unity 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 six months 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.
Last minute cancellations are fine, just please let me know at least an hour before the lesson or travel fees (if applicable) will still be charged.
I have a Bachelor of Creative Arts for Game Design, as well as an earlier bachelor in creative and professional writing, and have recently finished or am currently finishing multiple projects involving the entire game development & design process using Blender 2.8+, Maya, and/or Unity.
Perfect! Joshua is kind and helpful
Joe's two boys are attentive, eager, and quick learners. They'll both go far with Blender.
Perfect! Needed someone to get me up to speed with the changes between Blender 2.79 and 2.8.
Joshua is always on time and knows his stuff! Only took me a few sessions to find my feet and I learnt a whole bunch of Blender quality of life tips along the way.
A+ would recommend!
Sienna both learns and works incredibly fast. Within just a few lessons over a week, she had several well sculpted characters in place, including one remarkably detailed demon/monster. Sienna has all the makings of a diligent and talented 3D artist.
Perfect! Josh really cares about how students learn and passionate about 3D animation! I really appreciate his patience.
Tim is clearly a dedicated 2D artist who wants to expand his horizons into 3D, which, with a little personal discipline, he is more than capable of doing. Good things await him.
Perfect! Really thorough tutor and easy to get along with. Knows his stuff quite well too. He was super keen to help with my project for uni. Looking forward to more lessons with him!
Dedicated, organised, and thoroughly prepared, Peter has every single hallmark of being not only an excellent student, but exceptional 3D artist.
Perfect! Great Tutor and expert 3D artist. Very professional, incredibly insightful and versatile. Highly recommend.
Justin is diligent, dedicated, and keen to learn. He does not shy away from adversity and commits to the task he sets himself with absolute determination. He is going to go far.
Perfect! Joshua, saved my life. he's a very nice person always willing to help and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend if you need help.
Michael learns at extraordinary speed, pushing himself harder to master Maya's idiosyncrasies faster than anyone I've ever seen. My only real advice is patience. Maya can be, and often is, a frustrating program, but Rome also wasn't built in a day.
Perfect! So far so good. Very friendly and he ensures i understand what i am doing.
I will leave a further feedback on completion of the assignment
Plenty of potential here, is just a matter of building confidence in herself and her abilities and practising with the tools over and over.
Perfect! Joshua has been such a great help! I'd been struggling with Maya at uni and was about to throw the towel in! Thanks goodness for Joshua! He has helped me get to grips with all the basics and I am now much more confident and definitely not afraid of Maya anymore. If you are having trouble with Maya, don't give up - get in touch with Joshua! He'll show you how to solve problems and teach you some really handy shortcuts! Thank you!
A quick study and keen to learn, Maria is an enthusiastic and determined student who has a bright future in animation ahead of her.
Perfect! Very deep knowledge of the software. Always has an answer and an experience for everything. Feels like I can learn anything from him.
Excellent foundational knowledge with the propensity to go far, providing maintained consistency in ambition.
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.
