About Me

I am studying for a PhD student in the Aerodynamics and Flight mechanics group at Southampton University and have a Masters of Engineering in Aerospace and Aerothermal engineering from the University of Cambridge (Trinity College). I am an award-winning engineer with national and Cambridge departmental prizes in computational modelling, mechatronics, and software development.

Outside of academia I am a qualified private pilot and experienced technical scuba diver. I am also a reservist in the British army's Royal Engineers where I support their national airfields infrastructure team.

Tutor Experience

My tuition approach sees me go out of my way to tailor each session to the individual student's needs. I have well in excess of one thousand hours of tutoring experience from GCSE up to degree level in numerical and scientific subjects. I have experience tutoring all the major exam boards in science and maths up to A-level, IB and BTEC.

I have helped multiple students gain offers from Oxbridge in engineering and support UCAS admissions for all other UK universities in engineering and numerical subjects. For students already at university, I have extensive experience in helping with exam preparation, course content, coursework, dissertation support and Matlab/C++ programming in all engineering subjects.

Additionally, I've helped professional clients with applications for consulting roles.

I am patient and friendly, with a highly technical background in both aeronautical engineering and industrial consulting. My background brings a certain real-world pragmatism to approaching problems and the individual needs of my students. I stop at nothing to help get the student the results they deserve.

Client Reviews

Very helpful. As a non aeronautics student with a very specific ask, Ben has a tough job on his hands as I don't know what I don't know but we're making good progress.

- Aeronautical Engineering

Great start to a very complex topic. Session allowed us to align on my needs and I'm sure Ben will be able to help me with my understanding of this topic.

- Aeronautical Engineering

Very helpful and patient.

- Electrical And Electronic Engineering

Benjamin is a gold mine in the tutoring realm. Truly great at clearly explaining, developing, and proving concepts that seemed impossible to understand. He is fully capable of taking different approaches and if needed, more intuitive approaches to assure true understanding, and by default, better performance on tests, exams etc! I have worked with 4 tutors on spires now, and without doubt, I can say that Benjamin is the top pick tutor. Nothing but great news with this guy! David

"I am studying Biomedical Engineering and am currently in my 2nd year. I found difficulty with some of my physics and coding related modules and was recommended to Benjamin Moss. He has been one of my best private tutoring experiences so far, the technicality of our meetings using online meetings was smooth and free of disturbance, his delivery of material using on screen whiteboards and screen sharing is en pointe, and he made me feel very confident with my work and gave me excellent feedback that constructed my learning experience at uni this year. He was also very nice to chat with and felt instantly comfortable apart when we were not deep into learning. He was also very flexible to helping me with 2 different subjects in my course, one using MATLAB and lots of physics knowledge, and the other using C++ coding and mathematical knowledge. He is very intellectual I must say. Thank you for recommending and I hope to be having sessions with Ben (if he’s available) for my next year at uni. Thank you 😄" -Shravan

"Ben was one of the best tutors I have ever had, not only did he explain areas of weakness extremely well, but he also showed great interest in my work and added elements of insight from his perspective regarding my work. Ben was very friendly, and I found myself always learning about both the maths but also interesting facts about the areas around it. I am highly grateful to have received the tutoring, knowledge and advice Ben provided during our sessions. " -Zak

"10/10! Ben explained everything very clearly, adjusting to my pace. Very quick with email responses, and he checked in again after our class just before I submitted the assignment to see if I had any questions. Would 100% use Ben's tutoring again!" -Leone

"Ben was a nice person who had a good subject knowledge and explained topics very clearly. I used him for a couple of lessons to cover a particular topic in the BTEC Level 3 diploma in Engineering and he has really helped tremendously. I will use Ben again if I need help in the future." -Dan

"I needed a lot of help within 2 weeks time, and he managed to help me raise my average module mark by 20%. - Very flexible with teaching style - Always on time - Broad range or knowledge - Patient in explaining - Reasonable rate considering how much extra help he offers outside of sessions. Confident in his solutions and provides clear workings. Would definitely recommend." -Jessie

"Ben's tutoring was really helpful. He explained the methods in a clear manner and worked through the topics at a good pace. I would absolutely recommend Ben for Maths tuition." - Dinah

"We used Ben for my son to help him pass an engineering mathematics unit at degree level. My son has found Ben to be articulate and knowledgeable and has consequently enjoyed his teaching style and feels that he has made very good progress in a short space of time. We would definitely use Ben again if required. Highly recommend him!" -Shirley

"Ben was very helpful and patient for my daughters Maths GCSE preparation." - Laura
