Information about Ben
A full-time tutor with over 5 years` experience teaching subjects from Common Entrance level through to Undergraduate.
While completing my DPhil at Oxford, I began my teaching at undergraduate level, yet my real passion is lighting the fire in those who have had no previous introduction to Classics, and I always look forward to engaging students from diverse backgrounds and at different ages.
I provide a full education, working with the same attention and depth that you would enjoy at school, yet building the course around your specific needs. I dont have a fixed syllabus or study notes that I force upon you, instead I work with you individually, designing a course around you, finding the best approach to secure the highest possible mark in your exams.
As well as teaching, I also provide thesis assistance to those at university, as well as help with EPQs and A-Level dissertations.
I teach exclusively online via Skype from a dedicated office in my home, with reliable fibre broadband, a webcam, and a microphone. I offer a free introductory session to talk through your specific needs, meet you (parent, student, or both!), and discuss scheduling.
References from previous students are available upon request.
I look forward to meeting you.
Availability: I am available Monday to Friday, day or evening. I also make weekend mornings available for those who have school full-time during the week. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: 5 years` experience as a full time tutor, including 2 years language teaching in China. To date I have taught over 2500 private, one-on-one tutorials online, to students from all over the world.
All major syllabuses covered, including OCR, Cambridge, Edexcel, AQA, and WJEC.
ISEB for 13+ Entry to top independent schools, plus Winchester, Westminster and Eton College entrance papers.
I have a DPhil from Oxford, as well as a 1st Class degree from St. Andrews, and an MSt (Distinction) from Oxford.

Ben is very patient and his lessons have a great structure. They are pitched at exactly the right level for our son with excellent pace and I am very happy to recommend him. My son is in Year 8 but has really struggled with the basics since Year 3 of Primary School and Ben is really helping to build up his confidence. Our plan is for Ben to progress our son through to GCSEs.
