« 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. »

Methodology

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.

I charge a flat rate of £35 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.

I teach mainly from home, I have an office set up just for teaching with it's sole purpose to be a rich learning environment

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I've been tutoring now for 10 years and how they have flown by. I have now had the privilege of teaching hundreds of students in that time spread 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?

Yes.

- 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.

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.

Having Ben tutor me for the past two years has been great! He is extremely patient and explains things very precisely. He is hugely knowledgeable about every subject he taught me, and not only did he make sure I was prepared for my exam but also enjoy the subjects going along. Ben is also friendly and makes it very comfortable to be taught by him. Ben helped hugely towards preparing me for University and would recommend him for anyone needing a little more help!

Ben has been a great help from the first lesson to the last. I'm a shy person and at first I wasn't sure what would happen, but he is so clear in how to solve problems and teaching me new things that I quickly understood. Every lesson was so helpful and always made me laugh. Over these last months, I feel that Ben knows the best ways in which I learn more than my teachers who I've had for five years at high school. Thank you very much, Ben!

When I first started my tutoring I was the most unconfident person when it came to Maths! But after just a few months I'd gained so much confidence and knowledge and for the first time I felt like I could actually do Maths! He was so patient with me and helped me through not just revision but also the complicated task of applying for university and writing personal statements. I owe Ben so much and definitely don't think I could have got through A-Levels without his help! Thanks for everything Ben!

C
Catherine- A-Level Biology, Chemistry and Maths Student

I was tutored by Ben in Chemistry, Biology and Maths A level in Year 13. He has helped me so much, I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing help, or wanting a better understanding of their subjects, and already have done to many people. Ben helped me with anything I was unsure about, as well as clearly answering in depth any questions I had.
Ben is really friendly and supportive, and has been a great tutor to me over the last year. Thank you so much for all your help!

Debbie

Ben has been extremely helpful in tutoring Sarah. In just two weeks Sarah's confidence has risen 100%. Ben's explanation of work that Sarah has found difficult to understand has been so easy for her to put into place, we look forward to many more weeks of quick learning and understanding and Sarah's confidence growing from strength to strength. So pleased we found him.

Ben was 'hand picked' by our 10 year son, Sam, for a boost with his maths in preparation for his SATs. Sam enjoyed his sessions with Ben and came away buzzing with renewed confidence and interest. He ultimately achieved his goal and we would have no hesitation in requesting future support for Sam or his brother & sister.

R
Rafia - A-level Chemistry Student

Ben is a great tutor as he understands every aspect of the subject he tutors for. He is good at explaining it to us in a variety of ways until we are able to understand it ourselves. Going through exam papers with Ben is good because he would teach us techniques for answering the different sorts of questions. He is a great person to talk to and a brilliant person to learn from.
