All of Ben’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Ben’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 2

Qualified to teach all math required for classes up to and including upper division physics.

Bodybuilding

I have been powerlifting for about a year, and have helped a few friends to get into the sport. I plan to continue during the summer, and will join the Powerlifting club at Georgia Tech in the fall. My combined total is 995, and should shoot up relatively soon once my deadlift matures.

Differential Equations

I took an Honors Differential Equations class with Karen Uhlenbeck (if you don't know who that is, google her name) last semester, and while she wasn't the professor that I had the easiest time understanding, I feel that I learned a significant amount in and out of her class. I got a B in it overall, and think that I have enough of an understanding to tutor most of the subjects it covers, especially undetermined coefficients, eigenvalue/eigenvector problems, and basic complex analysis. Thank you for your time.

English

I got a 6.0 (perfect score) on Analytical Writing on the GRE, and a 630 (93rd percentile) on the Verbal section of the GRE. I am a native English speaker and know a lot of Latin, too.

GED

I graduated magna cum laude in high school after taking all of the hardest classes that were offered.

General Computer

I don't think there's that much to say about this subject, so I'll try to be succinct: I've built a computers for myself, my family, and my friends. I'm using a Lenovo ThinkPad T61p, with a 1920x1200 LCD @ 15.4" (the eye-meltingness speaks to my computer literacy, I think). I spend a good 8+ hours a day on my computer, which is currently running the Windows 7 Release Candidate (I had been using the Beta since... well, a bit before it was released. How did I get it before it was released, you ask? GENERAL COMPUTER KNOWLEDGE IS THE ANSWER!). I know my way around Windows (Vista and 7, mostly, but I can do XP as well), Office, Mathematica, Photoshop, and whatever else I find useful. I'm a prolific Googler, too, so if I don't have knowledge about something, I know exactly what to search for to get what I want quickly and efficiently.

Linear Algebra

I've taken an advanced linear algebra and basic functional analysis class with Lorenzo Sadun at UT Austin and gotten an A. The lowest score I got on any subsection of the course was a 94%, if I remember correctly. Regarding math, I got a 780 (88th percentile) on the Math section of the GRE, and have an honors degree in Physics from UT Austin, which required many difficult math courses. While my teaching experience is in physics, many students had weak backgrounds in algebra that I helped them with so that they could understand the physics.

Mathematica

I have been using Mathematica for several years now, as I pursued my BS in Physics. I used it for homework for multiple class, simulations, and as a tool for data analysis when I worked in a lab.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
