About Ben


Bio

Hi everyone! I'm Ben. I have a Bachelor’s degree in history and political science and a Master’s degree in government and politics. In graduate school, I studied American politics. In 2013, I began tutoring undergraduates in history and political science. In 2015, I started teaching at the college level. In my capacity as a graduate student, I led weekly discussion sections. I graded and provided feedback for exams, term papers, and other assignments.

Hi everyone! I'm Ben. I have a Bachelor’s degree in history and political science and a Master’s degree in government and politics. In graduate school, I studied American politics. In 2013, I began tutoring undergraduates in history and political science. In 2015, I started teaching at the college level. In my capacity as a graduate student, I led weekly discussion sections. I graded and provided feedback for exams, term papers, and other assignments.

For three semesters, I taught US Congress to upperclassmen. I've also taught political theory, pre-law, and introduction to American government courses. As a graduate student, I completed coursework on interest groups and social movements, congressional lobbying, campaign advertising, voter behavior, federal institutions, political theory (both modern and contemporary), and Congress itself.

I love working with students. I thrive in scholastic settings. I find exposure to other perspectives intellectually stimulating. I enjoy formulating and articulating complex ideas. The challenge of reconciling seemingly-divergent viewpoints and disparate traditions is incredibly rewarding.

Having worked as a grant writer for a non-profit organization — I have writing and editing experience. In that role, I was also responsible for revising proposals written by the other grant writers. In the past, I've also tutored undergraduates in writing and research.

For the last year or so, I've worked in DC for a congressperson and a US senator. In that capacity, I represented legislative team members at policy briefings and hearings. I also conducted policy research and composed policy memos for legislative correspondents.

I think you'll find that the breadth of my experience makes me useful in several different capacities. I want to help in any way that I can. Please feel to reach out at any time! Remember, there are no stupid questions!

Ben has been Helpful in Guiding Me Write My Literature Review

Ben has been very helpful in guiding me to write my Literature Review. When I began, I was very confused and overwhelmed. He has been walking me through the process of writing it. I finally feel like I know what I'm possible to do. He has been breaking it down and explaining each step in a manner which I can understand, and In like longer feel overwhelmed. I’m very happy that I have chosen Ben as my tutor. He has been a blessing.

Knowledgeable and appeasing.

Ben was very kind and understanding. He helped me sort out my ideas and gave me excellent recommendations. He was also very attentive and patient. After we spoke, I felt more certain and confident in my topic of interest.

Jenna , 5 lessons with Ben

Very helpful

Ben is punctual and asks for the material before the session so he can be prepared. He only charges for the time it takes to complete an assignment. He is very good at explaining things to my son in American government projects. I would highly recommend him! He is very quick to respond! Thank you Ben!

Ben guided me in coming up with more informative ways to help my essay standout. I was pleasantly surprised by his approach to writing. Definitely a big plus for me who failed to see it from another perspective. Thank you Ben!

A Perfect 10!

I have no words to express my gratitude with Ben. He was extremely professional, knowledgable, patient. His abilities extend far beyond tutoring. It was truly like having your own IV league Professor on a one on one session. One word- Priceless!
