About this tutor

I have been tutoring professionally since 2014, when I started both tutoring and preemptively teaching mathematics to students ages 8-20, as well as chemistry, biology, English, and SAT/ACT/AP Exam prep. I graduated from Washington University in St Louis.

Teaching is one of the most important things a person can do. We all remember the teachers who formed us, made us the people we are today. They inspire, they inform, and they incite us to learn. The curiosity we all have is stoked by teachers, who keep us thinking and keep our brains fit and full. 

I have worked for several professional groups, and my track record speaks for itself - in the 2015/16 academic year, I tutored 2 students who went on to earn perfect 36 scores on the ACT, as well as over two dozen 5 score AP exams, and coached several people through the college admissions process.

    Ben is an excellent communicator, both of the academic content for my daughter, and about the process, goals, and expectations for me! I have been quite happy with the SAT prep work, and believe we will use his services for general academic work during the school year!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I tend to ask for students or their parents to send me a list of questions, issues, subjects, and a sample of the coursework in question for me to appraise before we begin, so I can 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I operate on a sliding scale for pricing. My hourly rate varies, but will decrease if we work remotely, and fluctuates depending on the need of the student and the frequency of classes. I am happy to discuss more on a case-by-case basis, so please don't hesitate to reach out. I am open to negotiation within a reasonable margin.


How did you get started teaching?

I mentored students younger than me as young as 6th grade, and maintained a love for it ever since. I have branched out into teaching cooking classes, training young electricians, and editing articles and op-eds for publication in more recent years. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students ages 8-20, and have worked with friends and coworkers as old as 55-60 in editing resumes, cover letters, statements on intent, and so on.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I believe it doesn't hurt to shop around for tutors. It is an important match, as you will be working in a concentrated, one on one setting. A lack of understanding can make these interactions difficult, and can get in the way of the learning process. I encourage students to reach out to me and ask questions about me, my style, and my expertise, as well as providing their own needs and wants in a tutor.
