About

Hi! I graduated Kingswood College in 2018 with an ATAR of 98.75. I'm studying a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne with a particular emphasis on history, literature, and political science. As a diligent and conscientious tutor, I would relish the opportunity to help you improve your results in History: Revolutions (Russian and French Revolutions), Global Politics, Literature, and English.

I attained study scores of 48 for Global Politics, 47 for History, 43 for English, and 42 for Literature along with receiving the Dux of my school and numerous academic accolades throughout VCE such as the publishing of an English essay as an exemplar in the Insight English Year 11 textbook.

Having recently completed year 12, I have an intimate understanding of these subjects and can offer invaluable guidance in concepts and content; essay writing, exam technique, and short answer questions; and general management of stress and the year 12 workload. I can also provide you with a number of exemplar resources (essays and short answer questions, including marked SACs) along with practice SACs and exams written by current year 12 teachers.

Sessions will be directed by you and I am open to doing anything from covering subject matter and content in-depth; revision and preparation for SACs; or concentrated sessions to improve a specific skill such as essay writing. The books I studied were Ransom/Invictus (Malouf/Eastwood), Extinction (Rayson) and Like A House On Fire (Kennedy) for English and The Leopard (Lampedusa), Candide (Voltaire), Cat On A Hot Tin Roof (Williams), Foreign Soil (Clarke) and Ariel (Plath) for Literature. I have also read and/or studied a number of the other texts on the list for which I can provide tuition along with vital general tips applicable to the subjects at large.

Furthermore, I engaged extensively with academic resources in both history and politics which will allow me to provide you with indispensable insight into the key tensions and debates that pertain to both revolutions' and the world of domestic and international politics. My general knowledge and passion for history, literature and politics will be a valuable asset for any prospective students as I will be able to quickly and succinctly explain any questions you may have.

I will tailor lessons to suit your specific needs and learning style so you can improve as much as possible.

Ideally, lessons will take place at the Box Hill or Nunawading libraries (though I may be able to accommodate other public libraries); or, your home - though, depending on the distance I have to travel, this may incur extra cost. Prices vary depending on the service (subject in question and specific focus) you want, whether it is a group or individual session and any travel costs.

A rough estimate of rates are as follows:
Individual rate is $50/hr
Groups of 2 are $40/hr/person
Groups of 3 are $25/hr/person
Groups of 4 are $20/hr/person

I am willing to meet beforehand and discuss any queries you have free of charge.

Please PM me for enquiries and further details. Please note: the availabilities listed are by no means set in stone and I am quite flexible about when I can tutor.

Reviews

Ben recently began tutoring for my year 11 child. He initially took the time to understand exactly where their needs lay and caters the lessons to suit. Ben is very knowledgeable and plans the lessons well to ensure the child is challenged in the right areas.

Ben has been able to provide informative assistance in regards to the structure and language used in year 12 english. It has clearly aided my understanding of the subject, and writing ability.
