About me

Hi! I'm Ben and I'm a music student at the University of Birmingham. Having been the first cohort to sit both the new 9-1 specification GCSEs and Linear A-Levels, the learning curve for me was steep. I put in a lot of work for my exams creating resources/learning facts but also understanding the mark scheme and how to get the best mark in the exam. This exam technique is something which I believe is really important for all students to understand. I'm studying music at University...

Hi! I'm Ben and I'm a music student at the University of Birmingham. Having been the first cohort to sit both the new 9-1 specification GCSEs and Linear A-Levels, the learning curve for me was steep. I put in a lot of work for my exams creating resources/learning facts but also understanding the mark scheme and how to get the best mark in the exam. This exam technique is something which I believe is really important for all students to understand. I'm studying music at University as I'm passionate about all aspects of music but I also have a keen interest in Politics and Economics, which are both subjects which I studied at A-level. I spent time working with different tutors in order to achieve the best grades myself so I feel like I know how a student may feel in certain situations. This knowledge, coupled with my enthusiasm for my chosen subjects mean that I enjoy my tutor sessions and love seeing what students get out of them.

About my sessions

My responsibility lies in helping a student to identify and understand areas of the subject where they currently have limited knowledge and I feel it's important that sessions feel like a collaboration of ideas as opposed to just a mindless fact dump. A lot of my sessions are orientated around an exam question, and how we go about planing the question together. I'm also happy to mark any questions and give my feedback for students to improve on. Every student is different, and it'...

My responsibility lies in helping a student to identify and understand areas of the subject where they currently have limited knowledge and I feel it's important that sessions feel like a collaboration of ideas as opposed to just a mindless fact dump. A lot of my sessions are orientated around an exam question, and how we go about planing the question together. I'm also happy to mark any questions and give my feedback for students to improve on. Every student is different, and it's important that our session works for them but having had experience of multiple tutors in the run-up to my exams, I know that it's important to be able to talk confidently about areas of a topic which can then be translated into better written communication. My main indicator of progress is whether or not a student can talk correctly about a subject area and think around a question when challenged but ultimately, the learning has to come from the student and I'm there to facilitate that as much as possible.
