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. I tutor middle school, high school, college, and graduate students. I also review, proofread, and provide prompt feedback on writing in any form.

In addition, I work with professionals looking to improve their writing. If your writing skills are holding you back at work — I can help! If you want to improve the quality of your professional correspondence...

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. I tutor middle school, high school, college, and graduate students. I also review, proofread, and provide prompt feedback on writing in any form.

In addition, I work with professionals looking to improve their writing. If your writing skills are holding you back at work — I can help! If you want to improve the quality of your professional correspondence (emails, memos, reports, etc.) — I can help (I work regularly with students for whom English is not their first language)!

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.

Last year, I 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. Please feel free to reach out at any time!

Excellent Tutor

Ben helped my son study for the AP US gov test. He is very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job. We did a test lesson that went really well. After that we booked several more lessons to get my son ready.

Mahdi, 3 lessons with Ben

Prompt, with knowledge and patient, A+

Ben was kind and patient. I was on a deadline , and had to get a paper submitted with in 2 hours, due to another tutor cancelling. He worked with me, answered all my questions and he was nice, despite the time crunch. I enjoyed working with him. He seemed to have an intuitive knowledge about where to go and what to do in parts of the paper where I was stuck. He explained things in a clear , concise and organized matter. I felt very good about my paper upon submission. I would give him 5 stars , especially due to my circumstances.

Rebecca, 2 lessons with Ben

Ben is the best.

I would highly recommend Ben as the writing tutor. He is very patient and knowledgeable. Ben would correct my grammar each sentence and explains why I need to fix it. He gives good explanations every time. English is not my first language and can be confusing, but Ben makes it easier to understand. I look forward to have lesson with Ben. Thank you.
