Hi, my name is Ben, and my work is my passion. I am honored to be ranked in the top 2% of over 17,500 tutors on Wyzant.

I have been a full-time College Admissions Counseling and Test Prep professional for the past 4 years and have several additional years of writing, editing, and tutoring experience. I do everything in my power to help others succeed. I scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT & the 95th percentile on the SAT. I am a National Merit Scholar. I received academic full-ride offers from 5 universities and accepted scholarships totaling over $104,000 (in 2003). I’ve spent years teaching English in an ESL classroom and SAT/ACT test prep at a major company. I’ve been certified as an SAT essay rater.

In the next few lines I'm going to share exactly how I've helped my clients develop predictable systems to save time in finding and getting admitted to the right college with 100% certainty (and how you can do the same).

Most families are obsessed with the idea of a good school, but they completely ignore how exactly this translates into a successful future. Most students are frenzied over campus visits, letters/messages from schools, and the next best test prep option or scholarship widget, but they ignore what’s most important. It comes down to this: if you and your child aren’t 100% sure in their college application process, then they haven’t found the pathway to their successful future.

The most important thing is to figure out your child's future career and the right college to get them there. Successful students have a predictable system for finding, getting into, and paying for the right school, and they do this with 100% certainty. This requires two key metrics: identifying top companies and qualifying for the schools they hire from. We begin by identifying your child's mix of interests, experiences, and abilities and matching these with the right career fields. Next, we identify the companies that foster an environment in which your child will thrive. Then we figure out which colleges will get yo

College Counseling

College Counseling

Over the past several years of helping students increase their SAT & ACT scores with dramatic results, I've noticed that nearly all of my students have had one problem in common: figuring out how to be 100% certain which college is right for them. Using this insight, I help students identify and get into their dream school by identifying their prospective career, finding top companies in their field, and figuring out which colleges those companies hire from. By beginning with the end goal in mind, I help students find the pathway to their successful future.

Excellent!

Ben helped my son master the essay portion of the SAT and taught him precisely what and how he needed to improve. Ben has a great, easy-going personality and my son thoroughly enjoyed working with him. We will definitely use him again!

Tevis, 2 lessons with Ben

Great first lesson

Ben took the time to start reviewing test taking theories and methods with my son. He went through questions my son got wrong on his practice test and explained WHY they were wrong and explained how to get to the right answer. He gave clear directions on what he should do before the next lesson. My son really liked the way he taught.

Laura, 14 lessons with Ben

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Zack learned better strategy and time management from Ben. Felt it was totally worth his time. The practice tests and review of wrong answers and how to find the right answers was helpful.

Heather, 2 lessons with Ben

Great last minute help

I have taken the SAT various times and keep scoring the same in the reading section. With two lessons, Ben gave me great time management tips and logically explained the answers I got wrong in practice questions. With his help, I saw a big improvement in the time it took me to finish the readings and I improved my overall confidence.

Alejandro, 2 lessons with Ben

Very knowledgeable, patient,

Very knowledgeable, patient, adapted to a last minute situation wonderfully. Clear and concise directions, broke down information so that it was easy to understand the information presented.

Wonderfully Encouraging Tutor!

My son had four ACT English tutoring sessions with Ben just weeks prior to the exam. While my son had taken a 6 week test prep class at his high school, and had a good score of a 30 in English, his goal was to move it higher. With Ben's help understanding how he individually tests and where he struggles, my son was able to raise his score 3 points to a 33! I couldn't thank Ben enough for his time and help getting my son ACT ready in less than 3 weeks time. I don't think my son would have achieved this without Ben's help! The skills my son learned will continue to come in handy for him for years to come. Thank you so much, Ben!

Ben was super punctual and very organized

My son took the SAT. Then he decided that he wanted to take the upcoming ACT that was 3 weeks away. We found Ben. My son really connected with him and his style. Ben gave great tips. My son primarily needed help on English and Reading. But I think they also touched on Math, Sci and the essay. My son found the time to be very helpful and he said Ben made it fun:) Ben was super punctual and very organized about what they would tackle each session. He was also very accessible if we had a question. My sons score went up over 100 points on the SAT to ACT conversion chart. My son studied hard, but Ben was very inspirational in helping him get these results. Thank you!!

Monica, 9 lessons with Ben

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ben worked with my son for the reading and English portion of the ACT. He was extremely helpful and encouraging. We interviewed many tutors and used another tutor who was double the price, with poor results. Ben exceeded expectations. I would recommend him to anyone.

Meredith , 9 lessons with Ben

Patient Tutor

He is very thorough and good at explaining the concepts. My son really enjoyed working with him for his SAT prep for English. He is surely recommended. He is really good at what he does.
