Ben is an experienced private tutor who studied at Eton College and Oxford University. He began teaching in 1992 in Hong Kong, where he taught English Language. He now tutors children and adolescents between the ages of five and fourteen in Literacy, English Literature and History.
Ben has three children of his own, and in addition to his work as a tutor is a published author and professional proof-reader and editor.
We always believed that our son has some potential, but with Ben’s guidance this has come to life. His writing has been transformed: his punctuation and grammar are now impeccable. He was very reluctant to read books, but now we are unable to keep books away from him! He has been selected by every grammar school he has sat examinations for. Ben has become not only a mentor but a friend — our son loves the sessions and cannot wait for the next one. Ben has transformed our dreams into reality!
Parents of a 10 year-old pupil
Ben tutored my twelve year-old son for 5 months up to his Common Entrance exam. Due to Ben's enthusiasm, support and professional attitude, my son achieved both good and very good grades in his examinations. I can highly recommend him.
Father of a 13 year-old pupil
Ben tutors my two children. He is extremely patient, dedicated and enthusiastic. My children have very different personalities which Ben has managed to assess and incorporate in his tutorials. Ben has brought to my children a new positive inclination for reading as well as a development in writing, grammar and vocabulary. His calm nature has helped to establish a well-respected but also happy working environment. I strongly recommend him.
