About Ben

For more than four years I have tutored middle school, high school, and college Spanish students in the Triangle and surrounding areas. I'm familiar with many of the local high-schools and I understand what is required for your son or daughter to be successful. My tutoring style is completely focused on the student. I'm there to primarily help answer the student's questions and explain difficult topics that he or she did not grasp while in the classroom. I especially focus each tutoring session on homework, upcoming tests, and other large grades. Please send me a message with any questions at all!

Approved subjects

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 played basketball all through high school in upstate New York. I helped referee community youth basketball games and helped coach community youth basketball teams.
