About me

I am currently in my second year of an integrated masters degree in Physics, at Durham University. In my first year, I studied both Maths and Physics modules (50% Maths, 50% Physics) and so I am very confident in tutoring both Maths and Physics up to a standard equivalent to A* at A level. 

I have experience tutoring all kinds of students, from those who are working towards a pass to those who want to push themselves for the top grades. I enjoy the challenge of developing a different ap...

I have experience tutoring all kinds of students, from those who are working towards a pass to those who want to push themselves for the top grades. I enjoy the challenge of developing a different approach for each student, depending on how they learn best. I pride myself on being patient and understanding, and yet having high standards for submitted work and effort and interaction in tutorial sessions. 

Whether you want to learn new content and get ahead of the curve, focus on key areas to hit your target grade, or just get some past papers marked, I’m always be happy to schedule a free meeting and have a chat about how I can help.

About my sessions

I strive to tailor my tutoring to the needs of each parent and student. In the past, I have been asked to follow a specification, which provides a comprehensive and structured approach to the content. In other cases, I have delivered targeted tutorials for when a student feels that they lack understanding in a particular area. 

In my free meetings, I aim to find out key information about the subject and exam board that we will be looking at, before having a discussion about what student...

I strive to tailor my tutoring to the needs of each parent and student. In the past, I have been asked to follow a specification, which provides a comprehensive and structured approach to the content. In other cases, I have delivered targeted tutorials for when a student feels that they lack understanding in a particular area. 

In my free meetings, I aim to find out key information about the subject and exam board that we will be looking at, before having a discussion about what students would like to achieve. 

In tutorials, I cover subject content using a combination of verbal explanations and example questions. I also make a point of discussing content covered in previous tutorials, to help consolidate that knowledge. I often set problem sheets or small research tasks for students to complete, which help to develop intuitive understanding, vital research and critical thinking skills and exam technique. In some cases, I will set past papers (partial or whole) for students to complete in their own time. 

Whilst I understand that students have many other commitments, I expect a high standard of submitted work to ensure that students get the most out of our sessions as possible. I am always open to negotiate deadlines and provide clarification and assistance on anything.

My daughter was seriously failing the physics element of GCSE science and we were extremely worried that it would bring down her overall grades. Ben completely turned this round, he immediately understood her learning style and was very patient. We’ve had her results today and she passed with a really good grade.

Ben is a wonderful tutor who is very insightful and understanding of the needs of a student. After the sessions, he provides detailed notes and sets extra work for you to do. After only a few lessons, my understanding of concepts I was struggling with has become clear. With my confidence rising I am optimistic that I can achieve the top grades.

Very thorough and clear explanation of some very confusing concepts, repeats explanations where he feels like a student has not understood.
