About Benny

I'm a recent graduate of Bates College (Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude) currently working as a nearly full-time tutor at an after-school program with a demographic that includes ELL students and new Mainers, adults trying to receive professional certifications, students in school from K-12 across subject lines. I have held this job for a year and will continue on for the next. I have extensive tutoring experience with K-12 students going back into my undergrad and high school days as well.

My strengths in tutoring are in getting students comfortable, excited, and more advanced in reading, writing and the humanities (a teaching certification is on the way!). I believe in engaging students with attention to their learning style. I try to be not only open-minded and warm but also cognizant of how a student's way of life (interests, background, etc.) need to be integrated into their work, even in math and the hard sciences, for it to "stick" into successful learning. I look forward to working with you!

Experience. I have worked with many adults and children just learning English and am used to working with ELL materials.

I have a strong background in proofreading writing, having been an editorial intern at two publications in my undergrad. I studied literature in college.

If it seems like working together would be a good fit, please feel free to contact me to find out more or schedule a lesson. I look forward to it!

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.
