About this tutor

I believe that test success is within the reach of every student! I help students reduce test-anxiety by utilizing positive, motivational reinforcement principles and effective skill-building curriculum that improve students’ ability to successfully understand and answer questions within the timed constraints of standardized exams. 

Students that work with me consistently score in the top twenty percent on exams, such as the ACT, SAT, and GRE - with many going on to secure scholarships and admission to top-tier colleges and universities.

    Before selecting Great Expectations tutoring I shopped around looking at many well know tutoring companies. Many of the well known companies tried to oversell hours. I wanted an SAT math tutor to help improve my daughters score. She previously scored 590 and decided to retake the exam, one month before the next test date. Many companies tried to sell me upto 40 hours for math only test prep. Ben met with my daughter and assured me that the study plan he recommended would be sufficient for our overall goals. With one month of tutoring, my daughters score increased from 590 to 690. Additionally, my daughter is only a freshman in high school. We'll definitely use Ben again as she prepares to take the exam for college admission.

    I was referred through another family whose son got into UCLA after working with Ben. Ben helped my son improve 7 points on the ACT to a 33 score. Now my son is eligible for a lot of scholarships and has even gotten a full-ride offer from a few schools. I'm so grateful to Ben for being able to help my son - he is an awesome tutor!

  • Donna Marshall

    Ben has worked with all 3 of my children throughout high school. Each one of my kids is different, and Ben found a way to get through and effectively help each one. Whether it was preparing for the ACT, SAT, Algebra, Geometry, or Calculus - all of my kids got into the college they wanted and scored well on the tests, thanks to Ben.

  • Adam Chung

    Ben helped me improve 250 points on the SAT! I scored a 1400! I really struggled with Math, especially, and Ben covered everything that I needed to know in a way that made things understandable and fun! Ben knows a lot, is super-chill, and he motivated me to perform at my very best on the exam.
