About Ben

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!

Send a message describing what you need help with and I’ll get back with you as quickly as possible.

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I teach honors 9th grade math which includes matrix work, an important part of the ACT. I've taught math for 13 years.

Prealgebra

I taught pre-algebra and algebra. It's good to know where the current math is going to go in future classes. I work with struggling students on a regular basis and would be happy to help your son.
