About Benjamin

I can tutor in ELA, Social Studies, and I can help you you improve your essays, handwriting, and study habits. I don't usually tutor math, except for elementary school level. My students learn to write essays that will knock the socks off of college professors.

I started out as a history teacher in a special ed classroom, and all of my students showed progress. If you are a parent and your son or daughter needs to improve their work, I can devise a curriculum that will bring them up to date quickly and easily. I can recommend the right methods to use, the right books to read, the best sources for their school projects, and teach them to work without any assistance. I am an expert on history (US and global) and my students’ term papers always earn high praise.

My master’s degree is in special education, and I have a background in fine arts. Most of my students have had learning disabilities, so I’m used to working with kids who are resistant to learning. I guarantee, your kid and I will get along fine.

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.


I have a master's degree in special education from Touro College, and I've worked for most of my career with children who had autism, ADHD, PDD, among others. I devise a curriculum where the student is taught to organize his work and stay on task, and I am very patient with my students. If necessary, I can present evidence of my qualifications to the parent of the student as proof.

Bible Studies

I studied the Old Testament and its commentaries since age six. I have studied both the first five books of the Holy Bible, proceeding to the Prophets, Chronicles, and later apocryphal works. When I first began studying the scriptures I was taught with the original Hebrew language and commentaries, which gave me a deeper understanding of the historical and psychological significance of the story.
