About Benjamin

I am a graduate student pursuing a Master’s in Secondary English Education at DePaul University (expected Winter 2017). As I make my way towards a becoming a regular teacher, I believe my coursework, field and professional experience have all equipped me with the skills to improve your performance in English class or on the ACT/SAT.

I recently completed my first year of graduate work at DePaul. In that time, I completed numerous hours of fieldwork, the bulk of which occurred at Phoebe A. Hearst Elementary, where I worked with 5th grade students on reading comprehension and composition. Additionally, I also completed observational hours in English classrooms at Whitney Young and Al Raby High Schools and worked one-­on-one with students on reading, writing and math at DePaul's Academic Success Center in the College of Education. In addition to my coursework, outside of school, I work four to five days a week, subbing in the English Departments of Walter Payton, Lane Tech and occasionally in the Upper School at Francis W. Parker. I am student-teaching at Walter Payton in the Winter of 2017.

Before DePaul, I attended the University of Wisconsin-­Milwaukee, where I graduated magna cum laude in 2012 with a B.A. in English. In school, I published work in Furrow, my college’s undergraduate literary magazine and in The Shepherd Express, an alternative weekly paper in Milwaukee. I also completed an internship through the State of Wisconsin, working at the Public Defender’s Office with a revocations attorney preparing appeals and interviewing clients. After college, I wrote and edited articles for publication, interning for Third Coast Daily, an online arts and culture magazine in Milwaukee.

I am proficient in MLA, AP and Chicago editorial styles and have extensive experience facilitating workshops for professional, academic and creative writing.
