My teaching flavour depends on who I am teaching. I put together a unique course tailored for each student. This can include projects, step by step tutorials, and problem solving activities, all with a focus on a hands on learning.
I have a philosophy that all lessons should either be fun or inspiring first and the learning should follow naturally.
Just getting onto a subject and getting your hands dirty as soon as possible is very important. And making sure that the student not be afraid to just break things.
I have been teaching for many years and still work making games in the games industry as a day job as well as tutoring many regular students.
I would love to help you make awesome stuff too, so feel free to message me and we can talk about what I can offer you.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualified and response guaranteed. Benjamin will plan your first lesson with care.
I have been teaching and tutoring students in game design fundamentals and production for over five years and currently work as a game programmer.
I have taught full classes, mentored small studios, done 1on1 sessions with students aged from 7 years old to 45 and aim to make learning fun and engaging.

Perfect! Ben was incredible with helping me out, assisting me with all my stress and needs. Ben guided me and explained concepts to me at a level I was able to understand (a complete beginner) and was extremely patient with me. He exceeded my expectations, even going as far to learn about the software I was using that he wasn't familiar with before our lesson. I will be recommending Ben to anyone that is seeking a programming tutor.

Ben is an excellent teacher, he taught me Game Design in a way that not only made me want to learn more myself but also explained everything on a fundamental level giving me the lessons I needed to understand what I was learning and why. He always took the time to find a way of explaining that was on my level and gave me every resource I could need to further my own learning. Having Ben as my teacher is the reason I take Game Development seriously. He teaches you about the real world of Game Development and his lessons are so integral to the actual creation of games on every level that they will stay with you into your own Game Making in the future. If you’re looking for a teacher who is passionate about Games and knows what they’re talking about, Ben’s the teacher you want to learn from.
Ben is an excellent tutor for games development. He taught me when I first ventured into the field and now I am a working industry professional. He has a wide range of knowledge across all fields of game dev and an ability to hone in on exactly where and how you can improve. He is friendly, helpful, and great at explaining complex processes and theories. I can highly recommend Ben!
Ben teaches his students good habits and how to solve problems without needing to rely on him or other people so that we learn how to teach ourselves or where to get the information to teach from.
His very passionate about things that interest him and always tries to make those things better, not by just putting a band aid on it but from the ground up.
He really wants his students to better themselves by giving them the foundations to create amazing things.
Ben was one of the best teachers I've ever had, he went above and beyond to help students and is generally a great human being, 10/10
