About Ben

I worked for UCSB's CLAS (Campus Learning Assistance Services) as an ACE Tutor/Writing Lab Drop-in Tutor. I tutored university students of all ages, including graduate students. In the ACE program, worked with first-year EOP (Educational Opportunities Program) students to encourage them in their writing and develop their own voices within their composition. Also, I provided additional peer support during the revision process and helped students to focus on the importance of organization and structure within an essay.

When I was placed in the ACE program my first year of work, and I challenged first-year EOP (Educational Opportunities Program) students to develop their own voices within their composition. As a drop-in writing tutor, I provided constructive peer support during the revision process, drawing the students' attentions to the importance of structure and organization over grammar.

My philosophy on writing and improving writing is that it's a process. I can't stress that enough. Writing goes beyond just having correct grammar and the ability to utilize an exhaustive vocabulary; it is a way of solidifying your thoughts as a small contribution to the world of education and, perhaps, the world at large. I am willing to invest the amount of time needed to polishing developing writers and students so that they come away with more than just a corrected essay or some more grammar knowledge; I am seeking to help them hear their own voice in their writing and bring that with them to the next step in their careers.

I believe I'm uncommonly well-suited for being an English tutor because I've come from a place of not really being able to write. I got a C my first quarter of English in high school, and since then, I've averaged an A- in my college English courses. I have a personal investment in helping people with a desire to further their command of the language and a wish to hear their own voice come through in their writing, and I will help however I can to that end.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me! Prices can also be negotiated depending on your circumstances. I speak Mandarin fairly fluently as well, so don't let language be an obstacle on your way to being a more accomplished and confident writer!

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

During college, I was actively involved in leading the men's Bible study for my college fellowship. This consisted mainly of exegesis of passages that followed a theme that was determined by leadership. Currently, I am attending seminary at Talbot School of Theology, and I am supplementing my hands-on experience with leading Bible studies with formal training in the matter.
