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!

Ben is a great tutor
My son is struggling in algebra 2 and I just needed someone to plug up a few holes in his knowledge that he has obtained over this last several years. In one meeting my son understood a lot of information so I am encouraged because Ben was patient and a good teacher.

My daughter understands math a lot better now, I believe she will be ready for tougher math classes once she starts school next year.

Online Math
We had to choose to do online Math this year. It was wonderful meeting Ben. He is patient and She understands the way he explains things. The fact that he is a current teacher in the district helps a lot also.

Ben is working on 8th grade math/Algebra with my son. I really like his approach and his analogies...helped my son make sense of the material. We plan to continue working with Ben on a regular basis this school year.

A Good Match for My Granddaughter
He is patient and obviously loves teaching. So happy we found such a good fit on our first try. He is knowledgeable about math and especially knowledgeable about working with students. Looking forward to more lessons; this time online.
