About Ben

My love of teaching comes from my desire to help others. I was a teacher in the Washington D.C. area for the last three years, and have recently moved to New York. My goal in tutoring is to not only improve grades, but to create a desire for learning. My teaching style is driven by the idea that teaching is the act of lighting a spark, not filling a bucket.

For the last three years I was the lead teacher for 5th Grade Language Arts, and 6th grade Social Studies. We focused primarily on vocabulary and improving reading levels, but I am confident teaching proofreading and grammar as well. I raised every student's reading speed and reading comprehension in my classroom.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you achieve success in the classroom.

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.

Baseball

I played baseball in high school for four years. I played on travel teams when I was younger, and attended many different camps and clinics. For the last three years I was an assistant coach for the Varsity team at a high school in Maryland.

Basketball

I have played basketball all my life. I played AAU in the Washington D.C. area from ages 11-14. I coached a high school varsity team for the last years, and am currently the assistant men's coach at Cazenovia College.

English

I minored in English at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.
