About Benjamin

I have taught in private schools in the Los Angeles area for 21 years. I have tutored many kids in the Arcadia/Temple City area over the last 10 years, specializing in tutoring children of Korean and Chinese descent who are relatively new, not completely new, to learning English. Most importantly, I love kids. I have been a parent for 25 years, having four kids of my own. I know the anxiety of parents who want to see their child or children learn to their potential. I love to see them learn and be a part of it.

I believe learning is a result of hard work by and effective and clear communication between the teacher and the student. I know that I can help your child if they need help in Social Studies, English, Writing or standardized tests such as the PSAT or SAT.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Basketball

I am definitely qualified to teach people how to play basketball. I coached (Head Coach) Varsity Girls' Basketball for 6 years and guided Pacific Hills Schools' Lady Bruins to 2 California Interscholastic Federation Championships, one in 2004 and 2005. In 2005, the girls and I got to the State Championship game, but we lost. I am very capable here.

CBEST

I passed the CBEST Exam. I am very skilled at basic writing, math, and reading comprehension. Because the exam focuses on these areas, I think I would be helpful to anyone who is thinking about taking this test. The CBEST is easy with the right tutor.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an English tutor for elementary age children on and off for the past 12 years. Additionally, I was an English enrichment instructor for 1st through 6th grades at the Children's Academic Learning Center between 2000-2003. I believe that this makes me qualified to assist students in Elementary school.

Social Studies

I have a B.A. degree in Political Science from U.C.L.A. I am credentialed in Social Studies by the California Commission on Credentials. I have taught History, Economics, and U.S Government for 21 years to high school and middle school students.

Study Skills

From 2000-2003, I worked at the Children's Academic Learning Center in Temple City, California. This institution focused on the improvement of study skills of kids from 1st grade through 7th grade, and I was an integral part of that institution. I have also tutored kids ranging from 3rd grade through 12th grade in study skills from 2001 to the present.
