Ben has offered a wide range of problem-solving skills for a subject that I could not fathom in class, since there were loopholes in the material where method was concerned, as well as concept. Ben did a good job of tying together those more abstract and unwritten concepts of the calculus to make me understand this subject much better than I would have just sitting in class and asking the instructor. He is also very amicable and tries his best to get onto your level and explain things along a line of thought that is most intelligible to you, while adding anecdotal helpful hints where appropriate.

Ben is an awesome tutor! His teaching style is clear, engaging and effective. He is very personable and truly cares about his students. Ben is able to take the mystery out of the most difficult math theories. Excellent for discrete math

Ben has helped me debug multiple components of my matlab code. He proved to be both knowledgeable and helpful in Matlab, as well as committed to helping with project success. Ben also added to my knowledge of proper code formatting to ensure my program ran optimally. Very patient and understanding tutor and will use again in future.

Benjamin helped me with my python programming homework. The project consisted of classes, files, binary search, and insertion sort. We were able to finish the assignment in a timely fashion.

Benjamin is a great tutor. Very patient. He helped me with Python and R programming related assignments. It was great to have instant feedback if I made a wrong turn.

Great teacher. Very nice. Really knew his stuff. He went above and beyond the call of duty. I really appreciated his time and his expertise. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help immediately in any level of math that is complicated. He really made me feel comfortable and I am really prepared for my exam.

After encountering difficulty in a data structure class and receiving zero help from my professor, I found Benjamin on Wyzant and he turned out to be my saving grace! Even though my tutoring request was last minute, he accommodated my request and explained the process. Thanks to Benjamin's assistance, I earned a perfect grade on the assignment.

Ben is well-versed in the Python language. He was able to help explain these tough concepts into simple terms and was extremely patient with me. He is an excellent tutor and would recommend him to anyone who has questions about Python. Thank you.

Benjamin helped me a lot with an R homework exercise that I had been really struggling with. Would definitely work with again!

Ben helped my 9th grade daughter with geometry. He did a great job framing the concepts for her and she came away with a much greater understanding of the concepts.

If you're looking for the proverbial "tip of the spear" of tutors, this is the guy you want to recruit. Dedicated, patient and capable. Will not disappoint. If you're using another online tutor, you're losing. To be perfectly frank, I was hesitant to write this review due to concerns of consequently reducing his availability. If you give him a shot and you'll never look back.

Ben was great. He was very helpful as my statistic tutor and explained each problem in detail to help me get a better understanding. I will be using him in the future.

After floundering frantically with multiple upper-division CIS courses, I desperately began a search for a tutor that lasted way too long. Then I found Ben! It seems as though Ben is the only tutor in Eugene with ability to help you throughout an entire educational track. His knowledge doesn't stop at Calc 2 like so many others - he can learn the foundations of upper-division CIS and Mathematics courses given a bit of time and was able to do so for me. If you're a senior or junior that's struggling to knock out a difficult upper-division core class, consider hiring Ben! He was open to meeting at strange hours and walked me through very difficult homework in a logical and streamlined manner.

Ben is extremely knowledgeable, energetic and easy to understand. He is very patient and dedicated to teaching and solving problems.

Ben is extremely knowledgeable in computer science subjects and is more than willing to teach. He is very kind and patient and can help you with programming projects. He really takes the time to understand the problems at hand and helps you as a coder as well. I cannot recommend Ben enough, he really he is a lifesaver sometimes!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 programmed in C professionally for many years. I can help with learning C, its data types, implementing mathematical and computer science algorithms and data structures and with understanding, testing and producing efficient code.

I worked as a software developer at Microsoft on the development team for the mobile C# .NET platform before it was released. Subsequently, I have written interfaces and tools in C#, debugged, maintained and reviewed C# code, with and without Visual Studio. I am experienced with many C# language features, including some key similarities and differences with Java. I also have sample code on github.

I have programmed in C++ professionally for many years. I can help with learning C++, its data types, object-oriented programming, implementing mathematical and computer science algorithms and data structures and with understanding code and language constructs such as interfaces, inheritance and polymorphism.

I have tutored and taught Calculus for many years, and have a knack for explaining the concepts and techniques simply and flexibly to ensure the student's success.

I have worked as a software engineer for two decades. I started studying computer science a decade before that. I am familiar with many programming languages and development methodologies. I have academic experience with logic and computability, for example with lambda calculus, Turing machines, proofs and the proof of Gödel's Theorem, as well as with data structures, design and analysis of algorithms, generating functions, recursion, strong and weak induction, big Oh and related notations. I also have experience designing large, real-world, scalable systems for data computation, simulation and analysis as well as software systems for database applications and operating systems. I am also familiar with the use of frameworks for Python, Java and Javascript as well as C and C++ libraries for scientific and numerical applications.

I have worked as a computer programmer for over 15 years. I have designed, written, tested, documented, maintained, and re-factored or re-designed software using many different programming languages. For example, C, C++, Java, Javascript, Perl, Python, SQL, FORTRAN, BASIC, and Machine/Assembly among others. I tend to specialize in math-, data- and/or web-related software.

I have tutored such things as Assembly Language programming, Data Structures & Algorithms, and Computability & Logic (which covers Turing machines, decidability, NP-completeness, etc.). I am fairly well-versed with numerical & seminumerical algorithms and algorithmic complexity. In addition to a background in theory and familiarity with D.E. Knuth's books, I have experience with many programming/database/modeling languages (C, FORTRAN, FORTH, BASIC, Assembly, C++, Java, Javascript, Perl, Python, Lisp, SQL, UML) and paradigms. Also, I have some familiarity with statistics on the forefront of Computer Science, i.e., machine learning (including Bayesian Networks and Markov Random Fields), and in particular with their applications in computer vision.

I can help you with any undergraduate differential equations course, whether you need to become proficient in all the various methods of solution such as separation of variables, standard techniques for ordinary/partial homogeneous/inhomogeneous linear/nonlinear DEs, series method, vector fields, qualitative interpretation, numerical approximation, initial/boundary-value problems, Fourier and Laplace transforms, mathematical modeling with DEs, or whether you need to put it all into perspective and be able to classify the DE and figure out which technique should be used.

I have taught and tutored discrete math and implemented efficient algorithms for solving various problems in discrete math. Whether it's Euler circuits & Hamilton paths, bin-packing, modular arithmetic and number theory, set theory, logic, graph theory, combinatorics, probability, finite differences, optimization, geometry, topology, I can help you to master the concepts and apply them to solve problems.

I have tutored various electrical engineering courses such as signals & systems (which covers laplace transforms) and circuit analysis (i.e. RC, RLC circuits, complex impedance, harmonic oscillators, Kirkhoff laws and their generalization) etc. These draw heavily on complex numbers, trigonometry, calculus and differential equations; briefly reviewing the relevant mathematical background in the context of homework problems usually benefits the student greatly.

I've tutored elementary math for years, to children and adults. I'm patient, empathetic, a good listener, and creative at finding solutions to get people to feel empowered to understand and participate constructively in the experience of learning and doing math.

I have a master's degree in mathematics. I have taught finite math at the community college level and tutored it at the university level. I have an extensive background in many areas of finite math, such as number theory, combinatorics, probability & statistics, optimization, graph theory, set theory and logic.

I have programmed professionally in Fortran and am reasonably familiar with its different versions since version IV (66, 77, 90, 95, 2003, 2008, GNU).

I have programmed with JavaScript for many years. I have developed web applications with AJAX-like behavior from scratch in Javascript (before the name AJAX was coined), and used frameworks such as Prototype, jQuery & AngularJS. I can help with real-world programming projects or help you learn JavaScript. I can help you understand how JavaScript's object model works and how to use AJAX (frameworks), JSON and interact with DOM, CSS and markup languages such as HTML & XML which the host browser "consumes".

I have taught, tutored and graded linear algebra and can help with any undergraduate level class, whether it's matrix-oriented, transformation-oriented, honors or more abstract.

I have tutored logic and can help with basic/introductory logic or an upper-level undergraduate class in computability theory covering such things as Turing machines and Gödel's theorem.

I've been using Mathematica for years and have a master's degree in mathematics. I'm also familiar with other, similar tools.

I have programmed professionally in Perl and can help you learn or improve your Perl, including basics, modules, regular expressions, hacking, improving performance, and writing elegant, efficient (and maintainable!) code.

I have programmed in PHP and am reasonably familiar with PHP versions 4 & 5. I have also programmed in many other scripting languages and built, maintained, refactored (re-built/simplified) & extended websites and database backends.

I have taught and tutored precalculus at universities and community colleges. I know the material, how to explain it, where they're going with it (calculus or not), and where students have trouble, thoroughly. For example, if returning to math after a hiatus, or having a weak background in algebra or trigonometry. I have helped dozens of such students to achieve dramatic improvement.

I'm a seasoned programmer and have used Python for years to solve a wide array of problems. These have ranged from doing Data Science (data analysis & analytics, data munging, data visualization & machine learning) with Python, to doing web programming with the Python-based Django framework, to solving mathematical problems using Python with Sage or ad hoc problems in straight Python or Python-based libraries. I have helped introduce students to Python as well as to gain skills and confidence in it or solve particular problems with it or libraries built with it.

I have taught, tutored, and worked professionally with R for over a decade. I can help you learn R, write custom functions in R, or find, evaluate and use different R packages to solve problems in single and multi-variable statistics, data analysis, epidemiology, experimental analysis & design as well as more advanced applications such as Bayesian data analysis and machine learning and data science. I am also able to help with research projects and would consider collaborating on more involved research projects as a co-author, (partially or completely) in lieu of hourly pay. I am also reasonably good at graphics and data visualization using R, or in combination with Javascript libraries.

I'm an experienced math tutor and could help you with SAT prep. I got a 780 on math, but am also a creative and patient tutor who knows how to listen and read cues to envision where you are and what you most likely need help with. I can teach you the math, methods to recognize relevant topics and remember key info to set up & solve problems efficiently and also the test taking strategies that will help you do your best.

I'm experienced with many dialects of SQL such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL, and have worked professionally with and tutored all of these for many years.

I've taught & tutored statistics for many years, and have experience with statistical software such as R & SAS as well as spreadsheet applications and more general programming, and many advanced areas of statistics such as Bayesian inference, machine learning, simulation, modeling, data analysis, epidemiology, biostatistics and more.
