Information about Benny
I am 38 and hold a masters degree in physics from the University of Manchester.
Availability: Weekday and weekend evenings
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have been tutoring for over 10 years with lots of good results.
Benny started tutoring my son in Maths in 3rd year after a disappointing test result - my son went on to get the highest mark in his class in the 3rd year exam and a 1 in his standard grade prelim. We have high hopes for the actual standard grade exam and Benny`s patient approach and curriculum based tutoring get much of the credit for these improvements!
Benny started tutoring my son in Physics after a "fail" in a 4th year NAB. My son got 100% in the resit! Benny is careful to work to the curriculum which obviously pays off and the one-to-one teaching has greatly increased my son`s confidence.
Benny has been tutoring my son Greg in Higher Maths and has really encouraged Greg and helped increase his confidence. Greg is very relaxed with Benny and has gained a lot from the sessions with him.
Benny is always on time and does not have a problem with going over his 1 hour session to enable him to complete the section they are working on.
I would recommend Benny to anyone looking for support
Benny took my son, who was a failing student, to a comfortable `B` in physics as well as giving him the confidence to tackle his intermediate 2 maths exam and also achieve a `B` where previously he was floundering. Benny is punctual, polite and personable. He built a strong positive relationship with my son who looked forward to his visit every week - something I never would have imagined possible! Now we go forward with Benny to repeat this performance at higher level.
Feedback For Benny (5)
Benny is an excellent tutor, has a thorough grasp of the subjects (Nat 5 Maths and Physics). Very friendly, punctual, and a pleasure to have tutoring our son.
Worked well with my 15 year old and motivated him on. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a physics tutor.
There are several parts of the Physics course that my daughter had found confusing at school. Benny has helped her enormously over the last 4 lessons - very calm and clear in his explanations. I think it helps if the student is organised particularly now the Highers are close. For example if they had problems with a topic test then they can go over the relevant sections.
Benny is always on time and stays over his hour, only been a few weeks, but my son likes him and his way of teaching.
From not knowing a single thing in Physics, he taught me everything, always turned up on time, helpful, very good at explaining, and didnt ever complain when we went over the hour of tutition, i got A band 1 thanks to him, very very very recommended
