##### About Ben

I am a Georgetown graduate (Magna Cum Laude) and generally erudite person. Currently I am doing Post-Baccalaureate work at Columbia University in Applied Mathematics, preparing to apply to PhD programs. After graduating from Georgetown, I worked for five years as a full-time competitive ballroom dancer and coach; during my time teaching I have produced several national championship couples, and I teach ballroom dance at the School of American Ballet (the preprofessional high school associated with The New York City Ballet. My pedagogical method in how I train my dancers, math students I've had in the past, as well as myself in my own studies, centers around identifying difficulties explicitly, addressing concepts abstractly, as well as doing exercises to develop the degree of rote familiarity and comfort necessary for advancement. In addition, I am proficient at addressing psychological barriers to success (lack of confidence, performance anxiety, poor study skills).

Because of my thousands of hours of teaching, comfort working with children, teenagers, and adults, and high level of academic achievement, I am confident that I can advance any student's knowledge and confidence in any subject at the middle or high school level, though my most advanced knowledge lies in mathematics, and I am most excited to teach Calculus (First and Second semester, or AB/BC level calculus at the AP level; I received scores of 5/5 on both exams), as well as the courses leading up to calculus (Algebra I/II, precalculus).

I am comfortable providing instruction in Calculus AB/BC (1, 2 at the university level), as well as Precalculus, Algebra 1 and 2. With warning and prep time I am also happy to instruct high school level physics (up through AP level, with or without calculus), as well as standardized tests (SAT in particular; I received a score of 1540/1600).

Any question? Feel free to contact me. I'm happy to offer an introductory lesson at discount to assess compatibility and make sure that I feel I am able to adequately address your needs.
