About Benjamin

Hi! I'm a double degree student at Oberlin College majoring in Biochemistry, Premed, and Trumpet Performance.

I am the president of the FAST Mentor Program and the Music Mentors Program, and I have been tutoring dozens of students from 11-24 years old in math, science, music, and college prep for over 5 years. I currently have a 3.89 GPA. (Please see below for specific subjects)

One of my biggest passions is educating students and filling in the gaps of their school education. I prefer to teach in a fun but challenging style. I ask the students many questions to help them figure out their own answer instead of giving it to them. While I teach with fun and engaging methods, I do expect students to put in a lot of effort to learn as much as they possibly can. I teach students to problem solve and ask meaningful questions to improve their learning in all subjects rather than making a student memorize specific techniques to pass one test. I am extremely passionate about learning new things and improving myself, and I hope to pass that to my students. Feel free to contact me with any questions!

I have received A's in all math classes through calculus 2 and a 36 on the math ACT. I am currently taking courses in linear algebra and multivariable calculus on the side.
I feel most comfortable tutoring algebra, geometry, trig, precalculus, calculus, and ACT/SAT math.

I provide my first session for free to get to know the student and to give you an opportunity to see if my teaching style will match the needs of your student. Feel free to contact me for any more information!

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.

Organic Chemistry

I received an A in organic chemistry in college. I have also tutored a few younger college students in this class. I was recommended by my professor as an official college tutor.
