A bit about Ben

I qualified as a teacher in 2010, and within 8 years became head of school at the World Class Academy, an unusual travelling secondary school with which I led the world's only academic and athletic programme for aspiring kiteboarding athletes. Having had my fill of adventure for the while, I left the World Class Academy to move to the South East of England, where I returned to the classroom at Christ's Hospital, a boarding school in Horsham. I've recently moved into tutoring full time, and while based in Exeter travel frequently in my camper van in order to pursue adventures not too far from home. I tutor predominantly online, but love to teach face to face when it's possible. I specialise in Maths to A level, but as a school leader have planned curriculum for and taught English, Physics, and even Media Studies up to GCSE. I've been tutoring since 2006, when I was an engineering undergraduate, and have tutored more seriously since 2018. The route to learning any subject is well established, but a good teacher will navigate it in such a way that the student feels as if they are discovering it for themselves, and realises their own competency along the way. Beyond that, the teacher will provide good company, encouragement, and a little help reading the map every now and again! I moved out of the school system in part to allow myself the flexibility to travel more often. I am an active outdoor climber and paraglider, and spend as much time as possible outdoors.
