About me

Hi, I'm Ben, and I'm a second year student studying mathematics at Newcastle University. My main hobbies are: football, reading, walking, and video games.

Maths has always been my best and favourite subject. What I like best about maths is how it can be used in conjunction with the other sciences to create a bold new form of itself. This bold new form can then be used to explain how the world works.

Hi, I'm Ben, and I'm a second year student studying mathematics at Newcastle University. My main hobbies are: football, reading, walking, and video games.

Maths has always been my best and favourite subject. What I like best about maths is how it can be used in conjunction with the other sciences to create a bold new form of itself. This bold new form can then be used to explain how the world works.

I always enjoyed the exam period at school, it was a chance to test myself and apply what I knew under pressure. I hope to help make my students feel this way about their exams, rather than dreading them.

About my sessions

Many people wrongly believe that they are bad at maths, that no matter how much practice they put in they will never become good at maths, and that they are a lost cause. My aim, as a tutor, is to help students reach that 'aha' moment - the moment where they finally grasp a concept or see some idea in a different light.

Many people wrongly believe that they are bad at maths, that no matter how much practice they put in they will never become good at maths, and that they are a lost cause. My aim, as a tutor, is to help students reach that 'aha' moment - the moment where they finally grasp a concept or see some idea in a different light.

Each session will involve explaining the material and working with the student to complete example questions. I believe that having the student explain an idea or talk through an answer is the best way for the student to learn. In essence, I hope to get the student to a level where they are able to teach the material back to me. The topic of each session should be decided beforehand so that each session primarily focuses on areas of weakness. Improving the confidence of the student in the areas where they don't feel comfortable is what will make the difference when it comes to exams.

Not only do I want to prepare the student for their exams, but I also want to deliver interesting tutorials that inspire my students to study maths further. There is a stigma surrounding maths; many people are not embarrassed to admit their incompetence regarding the subject. I believe that maths is just as important as reading and writing, and I hope my tutorials can change the attitudes people have towards maths.
