About Ben Barber

With more than 15 years experience tutoring from age 5 – 65 I can help whatever your maths needs from KS1 through to GCSE, A-level and beyond.

I also offer tutoring for numeracy aptitude tests in employment applications and entrance exams from 11+ to Oxbridge entrance.

My tutoring approach is fully tailored to the individual and can be comprehensive across any stage or focused on particular topics. I have lots of tools and techniques and aim to make maths fun and interesting.

My first session is always free. We will use that session to make a full assessment so we can work out where help is needed. After that we can agree a lesson plan.

I am an enthusiastic mathematician and make my lessons interesting and engaging. I can tutor both students who would like to improve their confidence in maths and those who would like some additional exam preparation. I have good knowledge of exam boards, their requirements and standards expected and use my knowledge and skills to offer a tailored tuition programme using real life examples. I have many years experience working on a one-to-one basis and also offer small group tuition and always strive to develop a good rapport with my students.

I will provide appropriate challenging sessions and if required homework can be set and assessed if appropriate to ensure the best results for the students.

I can travel to you and don`t charge for travel time if it`s less than 30 minutes.
