I live with my family near Oundle (Northamptonshire) in England. Outside of my passion for English Literature, my hobbies include long-distance running, keeping fit, playing the piano, hill walking and visiting the theatre.
I have been teaching English Literature and English Language in UK independent and and international schools for 13 years, involving whole class and one-to-one tutoring at all levels from 11-18 (Key Stage 3, GCSE/IGCSE and A-level/IB. My teaching roles have included Head of Department and Assistant Head of Department at prestigious independent schools.
Having studied the subject to degree level and taught in 11-18 independent schools for well over a decade, my expertise of texts, topics and exam boards is very wide-ranging. At A-level I have taught all elements of many courses, including coursework and exam preparation for multiple papers. I have taught SL and HL level IB, with pupils achieving level 7. As an indication of my most recent teaching role, I have been delivering A-level schemes of work on Ibsen (A Doll's House), Christina Rossetti, Chaucer (The Merchant's Tale), Shakespeare's 'Richard III', 'On Chesil Beach' (McEwan), and Williams' 'A Streetcar Named Desire'. I have also been teaching all units of the Edexcel IGCSE specification. However, during the course of my career to date (13 years so far) I have covered a substantial range of texts and exam specifications.
It was my pleasure to teach with Ben in the same English Department for three years. He was an excellent colleague in every way: efficient, intelligent, entirely reliable and trustworthy with an excellent sense of humour. He engaged his students in imaginative and intellectually challenging ways and showed one hundred per cent commitment to their learning. He has a great knowledge of and passion for literature and language. He also taught both my own children and I can think of no stronger recommendation than to say that I would be delighted for him to do so again.
Mr Ben Wall is an outstanding teacher: utterly professional, scholarly and conscientious. He is kind, caring and popular with students who respect him immensely. Students would be lucky to be taught by Mr Wall. I would recommend him without hesitation.
'Ben is a superb teacher, who left us because of the long commute to work. He was well respected by staff and pupils, taught excellent lessons and his pupils achieved outstanding outcomes.'
