About Ben

I graduated from Oglethorpe University in 2013 in Applied Physics, with a minor in Mathematics. I am currently a graduate student at Clemson University on course to get my Masters of Science in Structural Engineering in December of 2015. I have been working as a Physics & Mathematics tutor for 4 years both for Oglethorpe University as well as private tutoring. I also received the Leconte Award at Oglethorpe University, given to the most outstanding graduating student in ANY of the natural science and math departments. The students that I have tutored previously have been able to develop a deeper and easier understanding of the material, as well as some tricks that can always help simplify problems. I will work with the student as much as they need, helping them achieve their goals for each class they need help with.

In addition to tutoring math and science, I offer one-on-one soccer lessons to players looking to develop that winning edge. I have been coaching privately for five years now, and have a very long history playing and coaching soccer. In college, I was a four year starter at Oglethorpe University, captaining the team my junior and senior years. My junior year, I helped lead our team to it's best season in school history, with a 17-4 record, a conference championship, and our first ever trip to the NCAA Division III National Tournament. I was also the head coach for two years at Marietta Sixth Grade Academy, and have coached summer camps for four years now. I have my national 'D' coaching license as well. When coaching the player, I look to improve and perfect the fundamentals of being a great soccer player. The atmosphere is very fun, but also fairly demanding, and for this reason I typically do hour long sessions. The last two players I have coached privately have made their way from the 2nd and 3rd level teams in their clubs to the elite level teams of their clubs in just 1 year.

Whether tutoring or coaching, I believe that it is extremely beneficial for the student or player to study and practice on their own, that way they can be ready for their next session and can see improvements faster!!

Hope to work with you soon!!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I did very well in math in high school and college, and have never received a grade lower than an A in any math class I have taken. I have also tutored in each of these subjects during high school and during college, so I have a lot of experience with tutoring. When tutoring, I find a way to convey the problem in a simple, logical way to the student. The method differs from student to student, but I always find a way to get across to the student and help develop a better understanding of the subject.

Algebra 2

I did very well in Algebra 2 in high school and college, and received an A. I have also tutored in this subject during high school and during college, so I have a lot of experience with it. When tutoring, I find a way to convey the problem in a simple, logical way to the student. The method differs from student to student, but I always find a way to get across to the student and help develop a better understanding of the subject.

Calculus

I did extremely well in AP Calculus in high school, and have been using it ever since in college. I, along with my brother, were the only two people (up to that time) to have made not only an A but a 100% in the class. I have also tutored in this subject while in high school and college, so I have a lot of experience with tutoring. When tutoring, I find a way to convey the problem in a simple, logical way to the student. The method differs from student to student, but I always find a way to get across to the student and help develop a better understanding of the subject.

GED

I am qualified to teach this subject because I have had an extensive educational background, and I am able to simplify problems to better understand how to tackle them.

Geometry

I did very well in geometry in high school, receiving an A, and have been using it quite a bit still in every day life, as well as in school still. I have also tutored in this subject during high school and during college, so I have a lot of experience with it. When tutoring, I find a way to convey the problem in a simple, logical way to the student. The method differs from student to student, but I always find a way to get across to the student and help develop a better understanding of the subject.

Prealgebra

I did very well in prealgebra, partly due to a wonderful teacher, and received a grade of an A in that class. I have also tutored many times in this subject during high school and during college, so I have a lot of experience with it. When tutoring, I find a way to convey the problem in a simple, logical way to the student. The method differs from student to student, but I always find a way to get across to the student and help develop a better understanding of the subject.

Precalculus

I had an incredible teacher for my high school precalculus test, and she prepared me for all of the future classes I had to take. She was able to find a way to make every problem easy to understand. In the same way, I try to work with the student to find a way to make the problem simpler. I have tutored many students with this subject, and have come across plenty of students who didn't think they had the brain to understand math well. I helped prove them wrong.

PSAT

I did well on the PSAT, which prepared me very well for the SAT. I find a way to simplify each question so it is much easier to grasp. I haven't tutored in PSAT, but I have tutored in SAT, and I know help the student improve his/her test scores!!

SAT Math

I received a 780 on the Math section of the SAT, and that was without a calculator. The math section of the SAT is a lot of logic math and word problems. I find a way to simplify these problems to a way that are extremely easy to understand for the student.

Soccer

I have played soccer for over 18 years and have played for 4 years at the collegiate level. I have a very good understanding of the game from my first hand experience of playing the sport for so long. Also, I have coached teams as well as individuals. I was head boy's soccer coach at Marietta Sixth Grade Academy for two years, as well as a summer camp coach for 4 years at Future Stars Soccer Academy. I have also given private soccer lessons for several years and have plenty of experience in that regard. I like to focus on perfecting the basic and fundamentals of soccer, because if you can do that, you can be a great player!

Trigonometry

I did quite well in math in high school and college, and trigonometry is one that I use every day. Because of my studies in engineering, I am always having to deal with things I learned in trig, thus it is very fresh in my mind still. I have also tutored in this subject during high school and during college, so I have a lot of experience with it. When tutoring, I find a way to convey the problem in a simple, logical way to the student. The method differs from student to student, but I always find a way to get across to the student and help develop a better understanding of the subject.
