Initially, we were going to have one hour sessions. It is summer, and one hour seemed long enough. My son and Ben now have 2 1/2 hour sessions, and my son enjoys them. He said he has learned more from Ben in his 4 lessons than 2 years at a prestigious Boston boarding school. Ben is a brilliant teacher.

Ben is an incredibly smart man who knows and understands material well. He is helpful with everything and gave me the notes he wrote after each session for my use. He is a very talkative, friendly, and understanding person who has a great personality for a tutor.
"Very encouraging and compassionate"

I really appreciate Ben's encouraging words to my son. He knows that learning is predominantly an emotional issue for some children but a major part of the instructional process for all children. He exemplifies the need to build trust in order to inspire confidence.

I received tutoring in microbiology and math for the GRE. In anticipation for Micro, I was extremely nervous about taking the course and was not expecting to earn anything higher than a C. Ben helped me tremendously and I currently have an A in this class! Ben thoroughly explained concepts that confused me, and he went out of his way to research topics in his own time in order to explain them as best as possible. I HIGHLY recommend using Ben as a tutor!!!

Ben is the best tutor I have ever had. The way he breaks everything down for me gives me the foundation and knowledge to get through all my assignments. I have a true appreciation and respect him and his talent! So if your looking for a good, resourceful, extremely patient and thorough tutor, I tell you to look no further! Thank you Mr. Ben!

Mr. Ben is very nice. He confirmed what we thought is wrong with our son: he was not taking his time to do the work.
I really believe Mr. Ben can my help son with his math. He was very patient and I know my son felt very comfortable with him. I believe we have found a match!
"Knowledgeable and effective."

Working with Ben has been a positive experience for my son. He has been working with Ben for over two months and now has a much better understanding of the fundamentals of geometry. In fact, his average in class has improved by almost 20 points! Ben is excellent at explaining the basics but also poses challenges that make you think "outside the box." He is also very patient and is familiar with a topic at the mere mention of it. I recommend Ben highly and look forward to his help with my son's course work as well as his midterm and Regents exams this year.

My daughter is in the 11th grade, and has been through 4 tutors since middle school, and by far Ben O. has been the BEST tutor we have ever had. Not only is he very well liked by our daughter, but she is so happy with all that she has learned so far with Ben. He is very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and basically makes our daughter feel comfortable and confident in herself. Our daughter has told us that in the one hour timeframe that she has spent with Ben, she has learned more with Ben, then she has in school since 9th grade. Our daughter has always struggle in school with Math & English/Reading, but hiring Ben to tutor our daughter to help prep her for her upcoming PSAT & SAT testing this upcoming school year, has given our daughter & us as parents the confidence to know that she will do well under Ben's guidance. I am sure that you will be able to read our positive feedback once again after our daughter successfully completes all of her testing, thanks to all of Ben's outstanding tutoring. Thank you Ben for everything so far, we're looking forward to our successful tutoring journey.
