Hi! I’m Ben. I love math and I love teaching math! I’ve taught in Jr. High for 20 years. I’ve taught subjects ranging from pre-algebra (and before that) up through bits of pre-calculus (matrices). I am currently co-teaching a class for math teachers to improve classroom instruction. Teaching math is awesome. Helping a student understand and master skills that they thought were too hard to conquer is pretty cool. I believe math isn’t just about getting an answer but learning how to...

Hi! I’m Ben. I love math and I love teaching math! I’ve taught in Jr. High for 20 years. I’ve taught subjects ranging from pre-algebra (and before that) up through bits of pre-calculus (matrices). I am currently co-teaching a class for math teachers to improve classroom instruction. Teaching math is awesome. Helping a student understand and master skills that they thought were too hard to conquer is pretty cool. I believe math isn’t just about getting an answer but learning how to think, learning how things work, and learning mastery of skills that will last and be useful in later math classes.

In my 20 years of teaching, I have worked with students one-on-one, in small groups, and classes as big as 40 students. I have helped students who struggle with the fundamentals and I push students to deeper levels in honors classes. Math learning is for everyone! Math success is for everyone!

I've taught for many years and have a good understanding of how today's skills impact later math learning. I teach Pre-Algebra, Algebra, some Geometry, some Statistics, Matrix work for Secondary 1 Honors.

I'm excited to help you! Send a message describing what you need help with and I’ll get back with you as quickly as possible.

Awesome!

Ben has been a great help for my daughter. Her grades, test scores, and understanding is increasing with each session. Ben is willing to spend the extra time to ensure she is comprehending the subject and their time is spent wisely on actual homework.

Amazing Tutor

Ben explains the concepts in a way that my son understands and retains the information. Such a great help for us. Test scores have improved greatly. My son is much more confident and less stressed about going to school. Thanks Ben!

Great Teacher/Very Knowledgeable

We have had a couple lessons with Ben and my son has the utmost respect for Ben and feels like Ben explains things in a way that my son can understand. He has been extremely patient and has great teaching skills, and with each lesson he writes a thorough review of what has been discussed. I would most definitely recommend Ben to those in need of a math tutor of all ages!
