About Ben

I've always had great ability both as a learner, and as a communicator, which led to me often tutoring friends and classmates. I like the process of discovering how to present information in a way that makes sense to each person individually, which to me is the most important part of teaching.

I moved to Miami about three years ago, and enrolled at Miami Dade College. In that time, I earned my AA from Miami Dade in Business Administration with a 4.0 GPA, and my BBA in Finance from Florida International with a 3.5 GPA. I managed to achieve this while maintaining full-time employment and tutoring part time.

I've always enjoyed, and been told that I have a natural talent for teaching. At the encouragement of friends and family, I began tutoring about two years ago. Since then, I've had the pleasure of tutoring students in a range of math courses including Algebra 1 and 2, Precalculus, and Geometry, as well as Economics, English, and Science.

I have experience coaching youth basketball and baseball, and feel comfortable working with all types of students. I'm motivated, hard-working, easy to get along with, and thoroughly looking forward to the opportunity to teach.

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 first started playing organized basketball the age of 8, and continued playing all through high school. I played on a couple travelling teams from 5th-8th grade, and was the starting point guard and co-captain of my high school team (Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, Maryland). I attended Bullis Basketball camp for 6 consecutive summers between the ages of 9 and 14, and then worked as a counselor there for 3 summers. Between my experiences on various teams, at Bullis camp, and the summer I attended 5-star Basketball Camp (at Robert Morris University), I feel that I have a far better than average grasp not only on the fundamentals of the game, but in overall team strategy. Though it's been some time since I played in an organized league, I continue to play basketball regularly, and consider it one of my biggest passions.
