About Benjamin

Have you been struggling to improve your SAT score just by studying? I understand how hard it can be. Want to write the perfect essay or write the perfect program? I'm here to help.

My name is Ben, and I'm a current MIT grad student graduating Harvard in 2012. I'd love to show you how to improve your score and help you with your assignments in school. I've tutored SAT, computer science, computer programming and multivariable calculus in the past. I have significant experience with professional editing.

As the son of immigrants I understand the various challenges that many students face. I really want to help. Reach out and book an appointment.

I have perfect scores on my SAT Math, Math II and Physics tests. I'm familiar with the style of questions. I also have unique techniques for how to pace yourself and how to use your scratch paper and calculator effectively during the test.

I work with a distinguished documentary filmmaker and my work has been published in the New York Times. I performed at a nationally-competitive level in forensics and speech events in high school. I also developed advertising copy.

I was the Chief Technology Officer of a software startup in Los Angeles; I develop a very popular open-source software library. My iOS games have reached #1 in the App Store. I was a graduate of Harvard's computer science program. I am familiar with the textbooks and coursework in college level computer science and the material in AP Computer Science AB.

I understand why you want to get tutoring and I sincerely want to help. You'll definitely improve!

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.

Computer Science

I am a Harvard Computer Science A.B. (Bachelor's) graduate with some experience tutoring college students in classes like CS 121 Introduction to Computer Science. I interviewed recent college graduates as a manager for my startup, including administering conventional academic computer science questions as part of our interview process.
