About Ben

Hi! I'm a practicing lawyer and a former engineer. I've been tutoring for the SAT, ACT, and other standardized tests since I was in college, including a stint managing a test prep company in Istanbul, and running my own test prep workshops at international high schools in Germany, Austria, Turkey, and Indonesia. Along the way I've gained experience teaching students from various backgrounds and a wide range of skill levels. I also took many actual tests over the years, and solved thousands of real test problems. There is nothing I haven't seen and nothing I haven't explained!

My tutoring time is limited because I work full time as a commercial litigation attorney. I continue to tutor because I love math and I love working with young people. If we work together I will be fully committed to your success.

I have three qualities that I think are crucial to a good tutor: mastery of the material, a gift for explaining, and a good rapport with students. First, I will not be "stumped" by any math problems on the SAT or ACT. I have done them all, and can do them in my sleep. By the same token, I know what makes them tricky, and can patiently explain techniques for "cracking" problems in a low-stress way. We will do a LOT of problems together, and you will improve!

I have flexibility in terms of location. I can tutor students at my home in Maplewood, in your home, at your local Starbuck's, or at my firm's satellite office in Madison. Please get in touch and let's see if we're a good fit. I look forward to working with you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
