I have worked with dozens of students to meet their goals of reaching the top percentiles of the GMAT and GRE, and I am happy to work with new students to meet their test goals.

About lessons with me:
I teach all my lessons online. This has been very successful with my previous students, as my reviews attest. We will have an online whiteboard available to us, so we can work through problems together.

Also please note that I only teach students who have signed up for one of my three lesson packages. I offer 10 hours for $1000, 15 hours for $1400, and 20 hours for $1800. If you are interested in working with me, I will send potential students more details about the packages as we discuss working together.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Top notch GMAT quant tutor

Ben has been tutoring me to get my quant score up. I had previously taken a Manhattan GMAT course but was struggling to get my quant score up. I’ve definitely improved since working with Ben, and the big improvements have come from Ben teaching me how to simplify problems. When we first started working together, Ben and I talked through my specific needs and challenges, and we structured a game plan up until exam day. Each class, he teaches me content, then we run through questions I’ve had trouble with. He assigns homework after each class also, which is very helpful. Ben has a really positive energy. He never makes me feel dumb for asking simple questions, and he clearly enjoys teaching. He’s a real pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him!

Great GRE Tutor

The lesson went great! He was super helpful with the quantitative reasoning and verbal section. We went over what I felt less confident about and reviewed how I could improve. I feel so much better about taking the GRE!!

Experienced, knowledgable, organized, pleasure to work with.

Just finished my first lesson with Ben. I left very impressed. Ben is clearly an experienced and knowledgable tutor. Unlike many test-prep companies/tutors, Ben personalizes his tutoring, accurately assessing each student's strong and weak points. He then develops a structured plan designed to fill in gaps in content knowledge/problem solving/strategy to put you on the right track toward achieving your testing goals. He is also a pleasure to work with.

Very Knowledgeable

He definitely knows what he is doing when it comes to tutoring. He really takes his time to assess your weak points and is willing to go step by step through each weakness.

Ben is knowledgeable and patient tutor

I enrolled in GRE verbal with Ben. He is very knowledgeable in his work. He makes sure that you have understood the lesson and the best part about the session was that in last 5 mins he actually revised the entire session. He made sure that I understood everything. He is really good in his work .

GRE Prep

Incredible tutor! He patiently, and thoroughly goes through material. He also comes up with a strategic learning plan, as he assesses the student’s comprehension. I look forward to our next session

Annemarie, 25 lessons with Ben

Very enthusiastic tutor

I have done two lessons (two hours each) with Ben and so far I am really happy with the study plan we have created and the approaches he had shown me to solve counting problems for GRE. I also had massive tech problems the first sessions and Ben was very understanding and patient about it. I look forward to working with him in upcoming two weeks before my exam.

Can turn the light bulb on

Ben taught me a creative approach to a counting problem, making me work through a tricky problem on my own and describe my thought process, eventually working ourselves to a point where he flipped a mental switch and suddenly an intuitive and much simpler method naturally exposed itself. Instead of simply telling me from the start, he had me work through the problem and slowly pulled the veil back so that when I saw the better method it made perfect sense.

Joseph, 3 lessons with Ben

Clear Thinker

I like that Ben allows you the time to work through the problems on your own, then points out where you were right and where things broke down. I also like how clearly he thinks. He shows that clear thought process as he breaks down the problem for you.

Alex, 15 lessons with Ben

Experienced, organized, incisive.

Ben has a gift for this. He is great at finding my weak points and helping me work on them. I feel I have gained more insight in two hours of working with him than all six months studying on my own. He has a very methodical approach of tutoring that helps even the foggiest of students to see clearly. Bravo!
