San Francisco State University (Master's)
Hello Prospective Students-
I am a student-centered tutor who is interested in tutoring motivated students. I am flexible and creative in my tutoring methods. I recognize the fact that each student has individual needs, strengths, and weaknesses. I adapt my tutoring methods to best fit the needs of the individual student. My number one concern is finding the approach that best suits the individual student. The continued improvement and success of the individual student is my true motivation.
I am currently a humanities department faculty member at University of Phoenix- Oakland campus. U.S. History is my main teaching focus, but math, physics and astronomy are areas of expertise as well. I have been a lecturer at San Francisco State in several departments including: history, geography, and American Indian studies. In addition, I have tutored students preparing to take both the GRE and SAT tests.
I offer high-value service at a reasonable cost. You will not be disappointed. Hello Prospective Students-

My rate varies from $50-$70 depending on the distance I have to travel. If you want a group rate, just ask me.
Ben is so great! I was a little nervous, because I haven't studied for anything in 10 years. Ben was motivating and enthusiastic about the subject (the math portion of the GRE). He took the time to explain to me the "whys", so the "whats" didn't feel overwhelming. I really appreciate his style, and he's fantastic at what he does. Thanks, Ben!
We hired Ben first for AP US History, and later also to assist with Math Analysis. Our teenage children found him extremely approachable, easy to converse with, and both said he helped them understand the material in a much clearer manner. We are already reserving him for the next calendar year!
Strongly recommended tutor!
Ben is an excellent tutor. My daughter went from a D to a B grade. He is reliable and very easy to work with. So lucky we were able to have lessons with him. Highly recommended.
My grandson's math grades have greatly improved since he began tutoring with Ben. It's an hour that provides just what's needed.
Ben has been tutoring my son in math for about two months now. He has always been extremely professional, he is able to teach the concepts in different ways to help the student understand. He is also a very kind, and compassionate tutor. We have had many tutors over the years and Ben by far is our favorite.
I worked with Ben for several weeks as I prepared to take the GRE. From the beginning he was enthusiastic and encouraging. He has a good sense of humor -- a must, in my opinion, when it comes to tackling challenging material! He's very knowledgeable about a variety of subjects; although our initial focus was the writing portion of the GRE, we ended up working on math together, as well. What I appreciate most about Ben is his responsive, flexible approach to teaching: he conducted our sessions based on what I most needed, and how I best learn and practice. Not only did Ben help me to receive higher scores on the GRE than I'd hoped, he helped to make the preparation process meaningful and enjoyable!
Ben has done a wonderful job on keeping my daughter focused. She has been enjoying her tutoring lessons and speaks highly of Ben.
Ben offers brilliant instruction, and relevant examples. He is extremely patient and works very closely to accommodate my schedule. I would recommend Ben to any student, young and/or old!
Ben has been extremely helpful with Algebra & Geography. He helped me scored well on my tests. Ben was a great help with my last Algebra test, I scored 93/100. This is by far the best score I have ever gotten in Math. I have real Math phobia, Ben has been very patient, understanding & very accommodating.
Ben has been an extraordinary tutor, helping me prepare for SAT Math & English. He is very knowledgeable and has a very kind and friendly attitude. He is also very reliable. He will be the first person I will call whenever I need help in the subjects he teaches.
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.
