Hi I'm Ben and I work as a full time tutor. I started tutoring as a hobby to keep me in touch with Science and through great pleasure and enjoyment now tutor full time. I play football, swim, go to gigs and play in bands as hobbies.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology all up to A-level standard.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I graduated from Kings College Cambridge with a second class honours degree in Natural Sciences in 2008. I received A-level's in Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and General Studies getting A,A,A,B,B respectively.
- How much do you charge?
I charge a flat rate of £30 p/h for every subject at every level. I charge for travel if it's more than 3 miles away but this can be negotiated.
- Where do you teach?
I teach from my own home and from the residencies of my tutees. I currently work all over Calderdale and in some areas of Kirklees and Bradford.
- When are you available?
As I work full time as a tutor I am available throughout every day Monday to Friday as well as working occasional Sundays.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach at all ages through secondary school and college. I also teach adult learners wanting to do the courses that I offer.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
SATs, GCSE, A-level and university, school and college entrance exams.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I tutor online through skype.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I've been tutoring now for 5 years and how they have flown by. I have now had the privilege of teaching over 100 students in that time spread reasonably evenly over the subjects that I offer. I have taught all the different exam boards for the subjects that I offer including WJEC! I've had great results from my tutees, from all subjects and at all levels (check out my testimonials on my website!) so you can rest assured you're getting the best possible tutoring experience.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I have students ranging all abilities. I'll tell you about a few from the last academic year '12-'13.
Cat- I tutored Cat in her second year of A-levels, in her AS she achieved AAB in Biology. Maths and Chemistry and was hoping to go on to do Bio-Med at University. For this she needed AAA. I worked with her through the year helping her with her A2 exams but also her AS re-sit for chemistry which she managed to get 100%! I helped her with her UCAS application and did some interview preparation with her. She got an offer from York after interview which was her first choice and then achieved AAA in her A-level results
Loren-I tutored Loren for 2 years through her GCSE's for Maths and science. She had had problems at school with bullying and struggled with self confidence. Over the 2 years will built up her maths and science to grade B/C from a predicted D and helped her improve her self confidence, her transformation was amazing.
• M.A Hons Natural Sciences from Kings College, the University of Cambridge
• Current CRB check
We chose Ben out of an array of on-line tutors. It was the best decision we ever made. Our daughter Alice wanted some input and help with her Physics,Maths and Further Maths A levels. She had an offer from Imperial College to do a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering and needed to achieve top grades. Ben proved an excellent choice. He is a skilled and approachable teacher and made our daughter immediately at ease. Not only did he improve her work, but also gave her much confidence, which she lacked.
Ben was punctual, reliable, amiable, hard-working and extremely knowledgeable.
Alice has now achieved magnificent grades in all her subjects, which exceeded her predictions .She is happily getting ready to start her new life at Imperial College. We cannot thank Ben enough for all his support and enablement of Alice. We have no hesitation in recommending him as the very best tutor available in this area. But be very quick as he will get booked up quickly-his reputation precedes him!
After leaving AS with ACCD I was far off my targets for what I needed for university, so I approached Ben for tutoring. Ben not only tutored me to an incredibly high standard but went the extra mile in helping me prepare for university. He helped with UCAS applications and helped me to prepare efficiently for university interviews. I ended up coming out with AABB and I am now attending a Russell group university. This would have never been possible without the support and help I have received from Ben.
