About Ben

I am a sophomore at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. My major is in neuroscience, but I am earning a chemistry and biology minor as well. I have had experience tutoring peers all the way from high school to college. I am, many times, the first person someone will ask questions. I believe people come to me because of my ability to explain complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand. My gift of explaining ideas probably originates from the way I learn things myself. I try to learn concepts in a building block fashion, from the bottom up. I like to learn how all of the small details contribute to the big picture. This is the same method I use to explain ideas to the individuals that I tutor.

There were times during middle school that I really struggled with motivation to study and learn. I progressively came out of this stage. I have found that I relate to, and can help students who are struggling with the desire to learn.

Math has always been enjoyable to me. Some people can do well in math just because they memorize a pattern to solve equations. I, however, have put many hours into understanding how math works. I believe I have a solid understanding of mathematical concepts.

Science is my favorite subject by far. I have put many hours into understanding how science works, and how many different concepts fit together into nature. I really love teaching people about science, and helping them apply what they have learned to real world examples.

Please contact me if you need help studying math or science. I love helping people understand their course material!
