Mastering Mathematics & Confidence Coaching (GCSE/AS/IB)

Throughout my own experience both as a student and then as a tutor and coach, I found that self-efficacy is one if not the most essential tool to success.

I focus on developing my students' confidence and resilience both in their academic capabilities as well as in their everyday life.

Maths is an excellent subject to increase curiosity, personal growth and inner resilience. We too often have developed strong ideas about our worth in this subject; but these ideas are opinions, not facts.

Through our conversations, I help my students shift the limiting opinions they hold about what they are capable of, believe in themselves and ultimately reach a place of empowerment and clarity.

I specialised in the following:
- GCSE preparation
- A-levels modules C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, S1
- IB Maths Studies.

I do tutoring exclusively online via Skype due to some personal and professional international commitments. Availabilities are to be discussed on an individual basis.

I also offer stand-alone mindset coaching for 18+ which is not to do with any specific academic subject; in this process my client and I are nurturing personal empowerment, heightened focus and deeper fulfilment in all areas of life.

Building confidence

Benjamin has been tutoring my niece who is in year 6 for about 6 weeks now in maths and literacy
He is kind, gentle and patient and is helping her to develop confidence in her abilities. She looks forward to seeing him each week and she likes that he gives her techniques for remembering things.
It's nice too that at the end of the lesson they practise a little French conversation.
It's still early days, but I'm hoping that maths will not be such a daunting subject for my niece and that she will believe that she can do it.

Kids homework coaching

I have 3 kids with very different learning profiles, including 2 with difficulties and poor appetite for school. Benjamin has managed to apply professional coaching methods to awaken their desire to learn and stretch their performance

After 1 month, I can see results on 2 of my kids in their attitude towards school. Also with some scores going up. The 3rd child who was in total refusal of any form of tutoring or coaching is now con

Friendly, reliable, confidence building

Ben has tutored both my teenagers and has been consistently reliable, friendly and confidence building. My son was thinking of dropping ad maths but is now back on track - he says Ben gives him excellent explanations in a way that he can understand and also helps him to think about what he needs to work on and how he needs to revise.

Great Math tutor!

Ben has taught my daughter Math A level and she has found his technique easy to understand and him to be incredibly helpful.We found that the type of tuition required for Math for A level was entirely different from GCSE and Ben is clearly a specialist in this particular area. He is a thorough professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Benjamin is class))

I have studied A2 level Maths with Benjamin for 4 months from February and right until my exams. In those 4 months of not the most intense mode (4 hours a week) we have managed to cover all units and even my Statistics which ive failed last year in AS. Towards the end of 4 months period i was getting high 90's % whilst my previous level was around C/D grade. I will strongly recommend Benjamin and I really hope that he continues teaching Maths because it is definitely something he is extremily good at. Furthermore, he is very helpful in improving student's psychology and he really makes you believe that you would do well and during exams I felt that internal support and confidence which I usually struggle with. So basically if you find maths challenging just get Benjamin!
Obviously grades didn't come out yet but I feel like I did very well. Maths is quite easy to predict your own grade in to be honest so I guess the outcome will be super positive!

Delighted with our son's results

Our son was struggling with his GCSEs and was about to give up additional maths. Ben helped him get his confidence back and incentivised him to do some hard work. Delighted to say he surprised his school and got A* GCSE and A in additional maths (there is no A*). He now wants to do double maths at A-level and become an engineer. Thank you Ben.

Great progress!!

I feel much more confident in graph quadratics than I did only one session ago. Ben has a great teaching style which allows me to cement my understanding and make solid progress
Advanced Maths (A-Level)
I know am more familiar with maths topics which I was shaky on.

AS Maths Tutoring

Ben is a superb tutor - very patient, thorough, and confidence-building. His deep understanding of maths and his emotional intelligence allow him to help students solve the problems at hand AND in the future as they approach the next questions with greater confidence. Fantastic tutor.
Improved considerably on end of year exams
