About Me

I recently completed a PhD 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

With over five years of personalised tutoring experience, I have guided hundreds of students to realise their full potential. My bespoke approach to tuition involves meticulously tailoring each session to address the unique needs of every student. I have amassed several thousand hours of tutoring experience, covering a range of numerical and scientific subjects from GCSE to degree level.

For university students, I offer comprehensive assistance in exam preparation, course content, coursework, dissertation support, and Matlab/C++ programming across all engineering disciplines.

I am well-versed in tutoring all major exam boards in science and mathematics up to A-level, IB, and BTEC standards. Moreover, I have successfully helped numerous students secure offers from Oxbridge for engineering programs, and have supported UCAS admissions for other UK universities in engineering and numerical disciplines.

In addition to my work with students, I have also guided professional clients through the application process for consulting positions.

As a patient and friendly tutor, I possess a strong technical foundation in both aeronautical engineering and industrial consulting. My background allows me to bring a practical, real-world perspective to problem-solving and meeting the individual requirements of my students. My unwavering commitment ensures that each student achieves the results they truly deserve.

Client Reviews

My class was great, I am happy that Ben teaches me coding in a way that enables me to fully grasp important concepts in Matlab.

- Civil Engineering

Clear, helped me correct mistakes efficiently but with patience :)

- Electrical And Electronic Engineering

Clear and to the point. Encouraging.

- Electrical And Electronic Engineering

Benjamin was extremely clear and succinct in helping me understand my Matlab assignment. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for assistance in MATLAB.


Very helpful just needed a nudge in the right direction


extremely helpful


Fantastic help- really good explanations. Would highly recommend Ben


Great tutor


Wonderful explanation.

- Electrical And Electronic Engineering

Great, first session.

- Aeronautical Engineering


"A very knowledgeable and accomplished tutor, Benjamin Moss, was able to analyse the problem and the technical difficulties this particular student was facing and was able to formulate a plan of action. There was a major technical issue with an aeronautics project which Ben was able to trouble shoot and resolve hence making the whole exercise viable. He was also able to assess the emotional difficulties and lack of morale from which the student was suffering in the aftermath of bereavement owing to the pandemic. Time was severely limited for project submission but the tutor was able to formulate a timely plan of action. He then monitored the student's progress assisting him at every stage on a continuous basis . Ben was very committed to ensure the student's success, making himself available at all hours. He showed great concern if the student did not respond in time and was very proactive in trying to keep the work on schedule.He also provided great encouragement which had a very positive effect on the student's morale and had a very pleasant manner which helped ease the student's anxiety. He was also very willing to interact with the student's family support network often reaching out to them to keep them updated and informed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Benjamin Moss."


Ben was great and helped me work through my MATLAB coding issues. Knowledgeable and good teaching style. Will definitely use Ben again as and when required. Would highly recommend. Thank you for your help Ben, Emilia


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!


"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
