Bio

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.

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.

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.

Patient and engaging

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.
