Experience:
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). From years of English teaching in an ESL classroom to SAT and ACT test prep at one of the major prep companies (in person and online), I specialize in giving you the absolute best experience. I work with clients of all ages and within all academic, personal, and professional circumstances, so I am open to hearing about all situations. That said, I do tend to work primarily with high school and college students. I am a certified SAT essay rater. I tailor the work we are doing to suit your needs, creating and adapting activities and expectations to match your skill level and learning style. As I am extremely well-versed in both writing and ACT/SAT test prep, I am capable of designing goals, programs, and even curriculum to orchestrate a fantastic experience. Most tutors dabble in a variety of subjects; I, however, am fully focused on one subject. My test prep work spans multiple content and strategy skill sets, ensuring you feel completely confident, helped, and inspired. Along that same line, something special about my skill set is that I possess the complete test prep package. It might surprise you to find out that the vast majority of high score earners do not have strong teaching skills, to say nothing of relatability, empathy, confidence, and a sense of humor. Suffice it to say that I confidently address all of my clients' needs, whereas most traditional tutors oft

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.

Great counseling advice and ACT lessons

Ben really cares about his students. He goes beyond miles to help his students always. Easily accessible and very knowledgeable. My son really enjoys class with Ben.

Frances, 26 lessons with Ben

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!!

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.
