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, 16 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!

Michael, 24 lessons with Ben

Knowledgeable and experienced GRE tutor

Went over practice test I took. Reviewed errors and got tips on how to approach different types of problems & sections. It is clear Ben is an experienced and knowledgeable tutor. I scheduled four more sessions with him prior to taking the GRE in ten days.

Nick, 7 lessons with Ben

Knowledgeable and Patient

We reviewed a practice to discover more about my strengths and weaknesses. After, we put together a game plan to get me performing better. Looking forward to our next session
