About Ben


Bio

Hello. My name is Ben and I've been married for 21 years. We have 3 children (19, 16 and 11) who are all very well-rounded with school and other activities. I believe that staying active and participating in other activities is essential to a successful student. Whether its sports, music, drama, art or anything else an outside interest gives your mind a break and gives your body energy!

Hello. My name is Ben and I've been married for 21 years. We have 3 children (19, 16 and 11) who are all very well-rounded with school and other activities. I believe that staying active and participating in other activities is essential to a successful student. Whether its sports, music, drama, art or anything else an outside interest gives your mind a break and gives your body energy!

I'm a licensed Structural Engineer with a BS in Civil Engineering from UC Davis. I chose UC Davis to play baseball, but my career was short-lived because of a shoulder injury.

I absolutely love to teach kids and thoroughly enjoy watching them grasp a new concept or skill. Math can be very intimidating, but once they figure it out it can be enjoyable. That's my goal for you or your child.

I combine my analytical engineering and sports backgrounds when I'm teaching math and baseball. I approach most problems as if I'm coaching and hope to teach that to my students. You may feel like you've been beaten, but if your mindset is that you still have time left in the game then you always have a chance.

I appreciate you taking time to read about me. Feel free to email me via WyzAnt and I can answer any of your questions.

Baseball

I played 4 years of varsity baseball for my high school at shortstop and 2nd base. I became a starter at shortstop 6 games into the season of my freshman year and never gave up the spot. My coach moved me over to 2nd base for my senior year to learn the position and prepare me to play college ball. My college career was short-lived due to a shoulder injury. Consequently, I've done extensive research on arm and shoulder preparation and conditioning for baseball players. I believe that off-season conditioning is critical to preventing injuries during the season as well as proper preparation before any throwing. My son is 14 and the conditioning work that we started 4 years ago has allowed him to stay injury free while playing year round at a very high level. His team recently played in a national 18 team tournament in AZ and won the championship. I take an analytical approach to teaching the game. Baseball is said to be 80% mental and 20% physical and I believe that. I teach players to think during a game because it becomes a huge advantage. I want your child to be prepared enough to know what to do before every pitch is thrown, that comes from practice and effort, but it pays off! Baseball is a beautiful sport and I know I can make it enjoyable for your child!

Test Preparation

ASVAB

ASVAB

I planned to join the Army National Guard 4 years ago and prepared to take this test. I not only studied the subject matter, but how the test is scored to be as successful as I could be. As stated below, your future in the military is dependent on how you score on this test. I scored 98 out 99 on this exam and I can help you. However, it does take time and preparation! Let me help you start today!

Great teacher!

Ben has been helping me study for the ASVAB test. He is a wonderful teacher and explains everything so clearly. My score for the practice ASVAB jumped 26 points due to Ben's tutoring. I enjoy my sessions with him as he is patient and takes the time needed to explain every problem to me to make sure that I know how to complete each step accurately. I would recommend Ben to anyone who needs to pass the ASVAB with a good score. You won't be disappointed.
