Benjamin

Worthing Tutor

My name is Ben, I am a young professional teacher. I have a first class masters' degree in mathematics from Aberystwyth University, and I am currently writing a book about the things I have learned. Outside of maths, I like being in my garden or out and about in nature.

Tutoring Experience

I have been tutoring since 2014, however I have more recently qualified as a teacher. I teach a range of age groups from years 7 to 12, specialising with the applied modules in A-Level. I have experience teaching the Further Maths A-Level as well. I have also worked with several adults wishing to further their mathematical understanding, either for a professional qualification or just for their own curiosity.

Tutoring Approach

I like to combine my formal pedagogical insights with the relaxed atmosphere of a home environment and a conversational delivery. My tutoring is friendly and un-intimidating but comes with all the resources and techniques that one would expect from a school classroom.

In our first session we will devise a learning plan, perhaps diagnosing areas of weakness or referencing a scheme of work for a particular qualification.

I like to spend a few minutes at the start of a session doing a 'warm up' activity, a game or a riddle or suchlike, and a few minutes at the end to review what we have learnt and consult our learning plan.

I generally like to confine my learning steps to one session, and with most topics we can build a solid confidence within an hour. I do however consider it important to get to the root of any particular areas of weakness and spend time focusing on different ways to approach a problem.
