I've always had great ability both as a learner, and as a communicator, which led to me often tutoring friends and classmates. I like the process of discovering how to present information in a way that makes sense to each person individually, which to me is the most important part of teaching.

I moved to Miami about two years ago, and began working towards a Bachelor's degree in Finance. I'm currently in my Junior year at FIU, where I've achieved a 4.0 GPA thus far. My schedule has recently included calculus, statistics, and a range of other courses. If all goes according to plan, I'll be graduating next fall.

I've always enjoyed, and been told that I have a natural talent for teaching. At the encouragement of friends and family, I began tutoring about one year ago. Since then, I've had the pleasure of tutoring students in a range of math courses including Algebra 1 and 2, Precalculus, and Geometry, with students ranging in age from 14-25.

I have experience coaching youth basketball and baseball, and feel comfortable working with all types of students. I take courses primarily online, which leaves me with a very flexible schedule during the week. I'm motivated, hard-working, easy to get along with, and thoroughly looking forward to the opportunity to teach.

Basketball

I first started playing organized basketball the age of 8, and continued playing all through high school. I played on a couple travelling teams from 5th-8th grade, and was the starting point guard and co-captain of my high school team (Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, Maryland). I attended Bullis Basketball camp for 6 consecutive summers between the ages of 9 and 14, and then worked as a counselor there for 3 summers. Between my experiences on various teams, at Bullis camp, and the summer I attended 5-star Basketball Camp (at Robert Morris University), I feel that I have a far better than average grasp not only on the fundamentals of the game, but in overall team strategy. Though it's been some time since I played in an organized league, I continue to play basketball regularly, and consider it one of my biggest passions.

Highly Recommended — In the short time since Ben began turoting my son (Algebra II), the results have been nothing short of amazing. My son was seriously struggling with Algebra II, getting Ds and Fs on quizzes and tests. Now he is scoring As!!!
