Do You Need Help in Biology, Math, or English?
I have a doctorate in microbiology and for years conducted research in pulmonary physiology at Brown University School of medicine. I help students with biology, geometry, algebra, trigonometry, English, creative writing, German, and biological, verbal, and mathematical standardized test preparation, particularly the Regents and the SAT.
I love to tutor one-to-one, for it is the most effective way to teach. I have been a WyzAnt tutor for a year or more, and almost all my students have...

You'll wish all your teachers were like Ben...
Ben took the time to see where best he could use his skills to help my daughter prepare for the SAT. He is very patient in explaining math concepts in a way that she could really understand and apply. I'm very confident that this will pay huge dividends, and help her get some great college offers.

Awesome tutor!
Ben is so patient and helpful with my daughter. He has practiced numerous skills with her for science and math. She gets along with him well, and respects him. I am certain she has done better on the SAT and ACT with his help.

Knowledgeable and effective tutor
At first, when we started by examining the first few questions of the practice test, I thought it was going to be an ordinary lesson where we just went over everything everything on the test I didn't know. However, we quickly branched off into fascinating tangents about a wide variety of things, including history and science, giving me a true understanding of where our math comes from. We went deeper into topics that I originally considered to be extremely basic, including prime numbers, exponents, and slopes. Finally, he gave an assignment that after 11 days, I am still perplexed by. Ben left me with the notion that there is so much to learn in this world, and I am fully confident that he will help me reach my goals in the SAT, academics, and beyond.

GRE Tutor
Ben was very patient and reviewed terms and the process for solving a problem clearly. My son was very comfortable making a second appointment with Ben. Ben helped him approach the math in different ways that made sense.

Excellent First Lesson
Ben O. was very warm, welcoming and professional when we met him. It was great to see the light come on with my son's understanding for those things that had caused him frustration dealing with Algebra 2. My son was excited about the tutoring session and he knew immediately that he wanted to continue to learn from Ben O. I think Ben O. is an excellent tutor Thank you.

Patient.
Ben did a great job of showing my daughter how to address the essay. Showed her how to tackle the math problems I would highly recommend not waiting for tutoring like we did These tutors need the time to effectively teach our children what to expect

Ben was there when I need someone to listen to me and guide me
Once I connected with Ben over the phone I knew that he was the right tutor for me when I heard how patient and knowledgeable he was. At times some tutors are more interested in letting the student know how much they know instead on focusing on how much the student needs to learn. Ben listened to me and to my schooling needs and explained to my math level step by step making sure that I understood the beauty of statistics. I was somehow afraid of learning statistics, in the beginning, buy as the classes passed by week by week I was looking forward to meeting Ben again and get clarification on my weekly lessons. Ben made this class enjoyable and at the end, I have to say that this was one of my favorites classes I took at CCN
