Personal Description:

My name's Ben, I'm 26 and I currently work for a local charity called Healthwatch Richmond.

I completed my degree in Biomedical Sciences at New College, Oxford University in 2014. Since then, I have undertaken a range of work for different healthcare related charities, including 'Doctors of the World' and 'Alzheimer's Society'.

Outside of my working life, I enjoy reading novels, playing casual sport and doing bits and pieces of independent study. I am never short of things to do and am keen to develop some new skills over the coming year (for instance: teach myself to code and start learning a new language).

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive experience tutoring individuals a range of students - of different levels with different needs. The subjects which I mainly focus on are: Biology, Maths and Chemistry (with regards to Maths, I completed Further Maths AS Level at School - achieving an A Grade, prior to A*s being awarded - and received a Gold Award for the Senior Maths Challenge). However, I am also be happy tutoring Physics, History and Geography to Key Stage 3 level.

Alongside my direct tutoring experience, I have worked extensively with young children, school and University students and adult learners. I have worked repeatedly as a summer camp leader for primary school aged children, as well as for the 'Oxford Royale' Summer School for 16-18 year old students from all over the world. I have previously volunteered as a Language Assistant, helping adult learners to develop their English skills.

All told, I have gained useful experience teaching students of enormously different ages, abilities and backgrounds. I equally enjoy working with both students that are struggling and those that need stretching.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is flexible, varying according to the needs and personality of the individual student. Before starting with a new student, I ensure that I clearly understand the exact topics/skills that they are hoping to improve and then shape my sessions accordingly. I vary how I use different tools and resources according to what best helps an individual engage with, understand and enjoy the subject material.

I like my sessions to be discussion based, creating an open and relaxed environment in which the student can ask any questions, allowing their confidence and wider skill-set to develop.
