About Me

Hi, I’m Simon, Co-founder of Ben’s Tutors and a recent Durham PPE Graduate. I have a strong passion for using numbers to solve real world problems, which is what led me down the Physics and Economics track through secondary school and University. I love to talk to others about my passion and discuss the impacts it has.

Outside of academics I spend most of my time rowing. I started rowing in year 8 at school and over a decade later I still haven’t stopped! I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to represent my country during 6th form and have represented my school and university multiple times at Henley Royal Regatta, including last year where I had an incredible crew that managed to pull me along to the final!
