Clever Learning

A little about Clever Learning

Clever Learning was founded by Mark Bensilum in 2016.

Mark was a teacher for many years in west London, based mainly in years six and five. Before that, he worked in research, covering areas such as fire safety and human behaviour, performance management and data analysis for substance-misuse treatment services. He is now working to share his passions for science, computing and maths with a wider audience of life-long learners.

Mark honed his own learning in HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL and JavaScript to build this website.
