Information about Benjamin
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 three years running. I also received the HVA Briscoe Excellence in Inorganic Chemistry Prize in my final year. 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, and A-Level Chemistry and Music.
I also offer brass instrumental music lessons as well as conducting lessons, and coaching to small musical ensembles.
Availability: During the COVID-19 pandemic, all tuition is online - I am available any day from 1 pm onwards.
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Experience: 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.

Feedback For Benjamin (1)
Ben has been tutoring me on a weekly basis in Chemistry for over a half a year. I find his sessions really helpful because we go through topics that I find difficult and he explains concepts very well. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.
