Hello!

My name is Ben and I have taught multiple subjects in multiple settings. I was a member of Teach for America where I taught in a KIPP middle school to general and special education students. I have taught Art in after school programs (one of which I was the Director of), summer camps and a special needs school. I have experience in common core standards and in test preparation.

I believe in using multiple learning modalities to build reading skills and have had success tapping into the unique learning needs of a wide range of students-- be they auditory, visual, kinesthetic or other learners. I am excellent at hooking students, modelling skills, checking for understanding and finding different ways to give students multiple 'at bats' with given skills.

I'm a creative problem solver who believes in the creative habit: I love to make art and am proud to have work in the permanent collection of the Rubin Museum of Art (New York, NY) and in the curriculum at Northeastern State University (Talequah, OK).
