About Ben

Recently I graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science. I took a creative approach to education and formulated my own major focusing on sustainable development, while also receiving a minor in City Planning. I have taught English to students in Thailand, and I spent a year as an assistant teacher in a high school ESL class working with Burmese refugees. I have spent several months in Spanish-speaking countries and am thus fluent in Spanish, and I also have a good handle on writing in Spanish. Additionally, I took classes across many disciplines in college, and thus I can be useful in any of the subjects I have listed in my profile.

On a more important note, I am always very excited to help anyone discover their potential to learn and understand material that they struggle with. The greatest gift to the world is a well-educated mind that enjoys the process of learning. I really enjoy working with people, building them up, and helping them develop confidence in their own abilities. I've had many interesting educational experiences - including comparing the functionality of cities I visited over 5 months across four continents - and I will find creative ways to help students understand their material. All the best and I hope we can work together soon!

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.

Salsa Dancing

I have danced salsa for 6 years now. I first learned in Costa Rica when on an exchange program there, and then I followed that up with lessons in high school and at Cornell University. Eventually, I became part of the performance salsa troupe for both partner dancing and rueda at Cornell University, and I have danced at many salsa clubs just for fun.
