About Ben

Bonjour mes amis!

My name is Benjamin and I am here to offer help in tutoring in both French and English. I am currently a fourth year French and English teacher in the Baltimore County Public School System. I have also been a participant in curriculum writing for French in Baltimore County,

I have lived in France for three summers (2004-2006) and have studied for six months at La Sorbonne in Paris (2012), a prestigious French University where I studied French literature. At Shippensburg University, I earned a bachelor's in French and English, graduating Summa Cum Laude and was a member of both the French and English National Honor Societies.

I am trained using the latest pedagogical theories in foreign language acquisition; I not only teach the language but I also create an authentic experience for the students so they are learning real-life vocabulary in a kinesthetic way-something books and computer programs can't offer. I am able to bring the language to life and allow students to see how French is not just a subject that they take in school.

While in undergrad, I worked as the head French tutor at Shippensburg University for college students and tutored every level of French. With my accrued hours from the learning center, I was awarded Level 2 certification on the CRLA International Certification Scale of tutors. I have also taught English to French students in Paris. I am now the lead French tutor at Loyola University so I also have experience at the college level.

To further develop my ability to create more engaging lessons that cater to students with a variety of learning needs, I am concurrently working on my masters in Special Education from Goucher College.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

I am a teacher in the BCPS system and have taught a plethora of students with 504's relating to ADD/ADHD. I have created innovative ways to differentiate my material to accommodate every student. I also do a variety of activities that way it allows the students attention span clock to reset, allowing them to focus better. I am also currently working on my masters in Special Education from Goucher.
