I am Ben. I graduated from Portland State University with a bachelor’s in mathematics, and I have just begun post-graduate work in Data Analytics at University of Oregon. I have five years of tutoring experience and I have worked with all ages. I started tutoring at PSU campus when I was an undergraduate, and I have worked at a Mathnasium tutoring center for two years. I am currently tutoring elementary school math, middle school math, high school math, and college level math. I will be providing my own supplemental math curriculum while school is closed during this covid-19 pandemic, and I will charge 25% off my standard rate for parents in need of assistance.
While I was an undergraduate at Portland State University, my favorite professors were the ones who encouraged me to think philosophically and ask critical questions. One of the quirkiest math professors I had once said that how mathematicians prove a given theorem to be true is akin to how jewelers test whether a diamond is genuine. One way that jewelers determine whether a diamond is genuine is by trying to read a newspaper article while looking through the diamond through a loupe. If the diamond is fake, then the jeweler can adjust the loupe’s lens and orient the diamond under light in such a way that they can clearly read the newspaper text. But if the diamond is genuine, since every facet will refract light at different directions rather than a straight line, there is no possible way to orient it under one’s eyes and be able to read the text that lies underneath it. In a way that is exactly like showing whether a solution to any mathematical theorem is true. If the solution is false, then you can see right through it and find a counterexample that contradicts it. But if the solution is true, you can only see the perfectly logical arguments that validates it.

Benjamin has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 7 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Ben is one of the best tutors out there! He helped me with Differential Equations and Calc 3 hw problems! He knows what he is doing and explains it in the easiest way. I definitely recommend him as a tutor!Zo, 3 lessons with Benjamin
Ben has all the characteristics a great tutor should possess. He's patient, kind, understanding, flexible, brilliant, thorough with his analysis and very good at helping you conceptualize the material with the bigger picture. Darn good tutor.Michael, 23 lessons with Benjamin
Student is passing Algebra. When we began that was not the case.
We have been working on Algebra 1. Our student is willing to go each week. He is passing his exams now. We will continue thru the school year. Thank you BenSherry, 10 lessons with Benjamin
You are a Godsend!!
Our tutoring session was fantastic and very helpful. I was having serious difficulty with the topic but you made the topic very comprehensible. The finals were great and I aced it, and I also ended up getting an A in my linear algebra class. Really appreciate the help and I can't thank you enough!!!! God Bless.Chuka, 1 lesson with Benjamin
Patient and guiding
Benjamin really helped me to the answers. He coaxed out of me what I knew and filled in the gaps. Definitely will work with him more and more until I really have it down.Daniel, 1 lesson with Benjamin
