About Bennett

First off, I would like to thank you for taking the time to review my page. I hope that the information provided here gives you an understanding of who I am and what I can do for you as a tutor. If you would like me to expand upon anything mentioned on this page, please feel free to send me a message. I hope to hear from you.

I have over 7 years of private tutoring experience for math classes ranging from 6th grade pre-algebra to proof based real analysis. Unlike many tutors, this is not my side job. This is my career. I work full time as a private tutor and I can guarantee that I have experience helping a student with a problem just like yours. My teaching method focuses on empowering first and foremost.

I currently work with over 30 families in the South East and Mid Michigan area. About 50% of my clients are college students in classes ranging from college physics, calculus, to linear algebra and advanced statistics. The other half of my clients are in high school or middle school math or science courses.

I earned a degree in Advanced Mathematics from Michigan State University. This means that I can not only show you how to solve your mathematical problems, but I can show you why things work the way that they do!

I love to teach math, and it shows. With me, math will be fun. I use a very objective and refined teaching style that balances instruction with independent work that will set you up for success in this math class and beyond! I never move on before my student has shown me that they are capable of solving the problems through their own volition.

In addition to math, I have experience teaching and tutoring physics, chemistry, biology, and ACT/SAT test prep. I have worked as a private tutor, a university lecturer, and as a department chair in a tutoring center. Unlike many tutors, tutoring is my full time job. I do this for a living and the level of professionalism and customer service that you will receive with me is unparalleled.

We will sit down, design a goal-based plan and map out what it will take to reach your goals.

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.

Calculus

I have worked with literally hundreds of Calculus students from many different curriculum over the last 6 years. While at Michigan State University, I served as a lecturer for calculus 2 test and final prep, often lecturing over 200 students at a time.

Differential Equations

While at Michigan State University, I earned a 4.0 in Advanced differential equations. I studied differential equations using Matlab under T.Y. Li, the professor who first coined the term "chaos theory."

Discrete Math

I earned a 4.0 in Advanced Discrete Mathematics while attending Michigan State University. I am familiar with many textbooks regarding the different branches of Discrete Mathematics including graph theory, combinatorics, and logic.

Linear Algebra

While studying theoretical mathematics at Michigan State University I was elected as a teachers assistant and lecturer for Linear Algebra for one semester.

Organic Chemistry

I was an Organic Chemistry TA while at Washtenaw Community College. I am still very familiar with the model used to describe and predict behavior of organic hydrocarbons.

After just one meeting with Bennett, I went home feeling so much more comfortable with the Calculus 2 material I was previously lost on. He has a deep understanding of Calculus 2 and was able to help me understand the approach to each problem I was having trouble with. In just an hour he taught me several ways to approach each problem I was struggling with. I was more than pleased with the experie
