Hi Future Students! My name is Bennet and I am excited to help you improve your thinking in both math and chess. I am a United States Chess Master and Ph.D student in sociology at Boston College. I am an experienced tutor; I have been teaching chess since I was 12 and taught my own camp curriculum starting at age 16. I have also been tutoring math for the past 5 years (my undergraduate degree was in math specializing in statistics).
I am on this site to find motivated students. If you genuinely want to work hard to get better at chess or at math I would love to be the one to help you achieve your goals.
I have always had an aptitude and appreciation for mathematics. Having completed my degree in math I am now onto pursuing a Ph.D in sociology with an emphasis on quantitative methods. As part of this training I have undergone the doctoral level statistics track in the economics department to delve more deeply into stats concepts. I have also been a tutor for high school students working on Algebra 1 and 2 along with SAT prep in the past two years.
I am one of the top chess players in the area with a long history of teaching chess. I am capable of teaching anyone from beginner up through expert in concepts as simple as moving the pieces or as advanced as building an opening repertoire/ understanding middle game themes and classical endgame technique

I was lost in a morass of statistical jargon, and recognized I was in over my head and needed help. Bennet was flexible, friendly, responsive - and wow, does he know his stuff! He helped me clarify my hypotheses, and put the confusing (to me) statistical terms into regular English. In the face of my panic, he was very calm and steadying. Great experience! Definitely recommend him without hesitation.
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.
