Imperial College Chemistry graduate offering GCSE, A-level, and Degree-level Chemistry tuition. I tutor in the West London area and can teach at home, travel, or online.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is based heavily on practising questions and past papers. I believe that the best way to learn is to apply what you know. So many times I have witnessed children that think they know a topic because they have read their notes, but it is not until they actually try to apply their knowledge that they realise that they are not 100% confident.

The lesson structure varies depending on the person I am tutoring and how they best learn. This could be mainly through questions, guided worksheets, or PowerPoint presentations.

Experience

I am a private tutor and musician holding a first-class degree (MSci) in Chemistry from Imperial College London. I am currently a research postgraduate at Imperial College London, researching novel MRI probes for brain imaging. My area of expertise is in inorganic chemistry, including coordination chemistry, NMR spectroscopy, main group, transition metal, organometallic, and lanthanide and actinide chemistry.

I tutor in the West London and West Midlands Regions. I am fully CRB checked. I received the award for best GCSE results (7A*, 4A), and best AS results (5A) from Plantsbrook School, and achieved A2 results of 3A* and an A - once again the best in the school. At Imperial, I was a member of the Faculty of Natural Science Dean`s List (top 10% of chemistry students) for all four years of my degree. I also received the HVA Briscoe Excellence in Inorganic Chemistry Prize in my final year at Imperial College London. I am an ex-principal tuba player for the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain, performing with them for 3 years. I am able to tutor for GCSE Chemistry, Physics, and Music, A-Level Chemistry and Music, and Degree-level Chemistry.

I have completed A levels and GCSEs and obtained very high grades in all of the subjects that I tutor for. I have also volunteered at my local school as a teaching assistant on my gap year and have gained teaching experience with both Science and Music students, as well as just general experience of teaching and being around children. All of the students I tutored said that I was a great help in getting them to achieve their grades. All of my students either hit or exceeded their target grade(s) for the subject(s) I tutored them for. I also completed work experience at Harris Westminster Sixth Form as part of my degree where I taught A-level chemistry lessons. I have also tutored throughout my degree, helping several students secure the grades needed to head to their first-choice university

I was the principal tuba with the National Youth Wind Orchestra for 3 years as well as holding principal roles with the Birmingham Schools` Symphony Orchestra and Brass Ensemble. I currently perform with and conduct the Imperial College Wind Band as well as being principal tuba for the Imperial College Symphony Orchestra. I also offer brass instrumental music lessons as well as conducting lessons, and coaching to small musical ensembles.

Ben is an affable and intelligent tutor. He comes to sessions well prepared and will help you to succeed. He explains difficult concepts in a way that’s understandable and yet still makes the sessions very enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Ben tutored me in Chemistry from the start of year 13. I originally sought him out because he was attained an A* in Chemistry at A-level and was also studying Chemistry as a degree at Imperial College. His background in Chemistry meant that he was excellent at explaining key concepts and from his own experience in taking exams, how to reach those high grades. I thoroughly enjoyed and looked forward to tutoring sessions with Ben as he was really friendly and empathetic. I knew that after every session, all my uncertainties on a topic would dissipate. With his help, I was able to meet and exceed my offer to study Chemistry at University College London. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor for those looking for a Chemistry tutor but I am absolutely certain that he would make a great Maths, Physics or Music tutor too!

I had Ben as a tutor when I did my A levels and I put my grades down to having him as a tutor, definitely a worthy investment!!

I can highly recommend Ben as a tutor. He taught me at GCSE and always found ways to make learning really engaging and interactive. Ben consistently gave high-quality, helpful verbal and written feedback. He really knows his stuff!

Throughout our time at university together, Benjamin was always more than happy to assist me with topics that I struggled with. Conceptually, I struggled with a number of the modules taught at my university. However, with Benjamin’s help I was able to pick my grade up and finish with a 2:1, and I owe a large portion of that to Benjamin. So I would very highly recommend him. He makes learning easy and if very knowledgable in all things Chemistry, so can easily explain concepts for your understanding.

Ben single handedly got me through my AS music exams. Without his tutoring, I wouldn't have been able to go on to UNI to study music. He's patient and calm and has a good way of explaining things so they seem easy and manageable.

N
Noah

Ben helped me achieve an A*. He always knows how to break down a complex problem into manageable chunks and explain every step. I would highly recommend Ben if you're looking for a tutor.
