About Benjamin


Bio

I love to teach, and I love to learn! They go hand in hand. With experience teaching English in middle and high schools, ESL to children and adults, yoga and meditation to children and adults, and several years experience as a corporate trainer in a law environment, I have a large and eclectic wealth of experience from which to draw.

I specialize in grammar, writing, reading comprehension, vocabulary, creative fiction, public speaking, presentations, leadership skills, time management...

I love to teach, and I love to learn! They go hand in hand. With experience teaching English in middle and high schools, ESL to children and adults, yoga and meditation to children and adults, and several years experience as a corporate trainer in a law environment, I have a large and eclectic wealth of experience from which to draw.

I specialize in grammar, writing, reading comprehension, vocabulary, creative fiction, public speaking, presentations, leadership skills, time management skills, instructional design, ESL and sociology. In every lesson I make a point to develop the emotional intelligence of my students, and this progress is often what students value the most sessions.

What do I love most about tutoring? I love to make meaningful relationships and help others achieve their goals!

I earned TEFL certificate and taught ESL in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I also taught Speech elective at a high school. I am an excellent public speaker as trainer for a law firm. I have taken multiple fiction writing courses outside of degrees.
