About Ben


Bio

I am a Mechanical Engineering major who used to hate math too! I have seen the error of my ways and now enjoy learning about math and physics. I am familiar with peer tutoring at the college level through my Junior College Math Lab. It greatly improved my knowledge and one-on-one skills.

I am a Mechanical Engineering major who used to hate math too! I have seen the error of my ways and now enjoy learning about math and physics. I am familiar with peer tutoring at the college level through my Junior College Math Lab. It greatly improved my knowledge and one-on-one skills.

I love helping students grasp the concepts and solutions they are struggling with. This enables them to improve their tests and scoring and lessen the dread of such challenges. I require dedication and perseverance in both the sessions and the homework between.

I scored a 30 on the ACT and have learned much since then. One of my goals is to help someone surpass that score! I have also kept a 4.0 GPA through all of my college courses. This includes Physics and the entire Calculus sequence. Furthermore, I have superior communication skills. I achieved 7th place in the State STOA Persuasive Speech competition and was invited to Nationals in the STOA Impromptu Speech category. I also led the first place team in the 2012 Junior College Robotic Engineering Challenge.

Don't hesitate to contact me with questions or specific requests. Hope to hear from you!

Basically just an epic tutor

Ben taught me pre-calculus, physics, and economics. I like how he goes through everything step by step and if you seriously don't get something he makes sure you understand it completely. He has helpful.

Heather, 26 lessons with Ben

Patient and knowledgeable

He really helped me understand my lesson better and was very patient when I didn't understand something. He made sure I understood before we moved on.

Shannon, 1 lesson with Ben

Knowledgeable

Today we conquered a math subject I never understood, Domains. He challenged me with his own problems, and I left with a better understanding.
