"Hi! I'm Ben. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree from Vassar College (double major in English and Women's Studies) and I then completed a Master's degree in Education at Columbia University Teachers College in New York City. I am also a certified English teacher in New York, Virginia, and Texas. I am an experienced educator and tutor and I am excited to work with you. I have taught students from all different backgrounds and I always work to find ways to make the subjects I teach interesting, engaging, and fun.
I have classroom teaching experience with 8th grade, 9th grade, 11th grade, and 12th grade, but I have also worked as an Adjunct Professor of English at a community college and tutored kids of all ages. I have tutored subjects such as English, Spanish, Social Studies (European and American History), and SAT Preparation. I am also an experienced guitar teacher.
As an English teacher, I spend a lot of time designing lessons and helping students with their reading comprehension and writing skills. I work with students in groups and one-on-one to discover their interests, fit lessons to their needs, check for understanding, and figure out what to do next. I have extensive background knowledge of literature, grammar, as well as standardized tests such as the SAT. I will bring my training in this subject to you in order to figure out how you learn best, how you absorb and retain information, and what specific areas we need to work on.
I am an experienced Spanish tutor. Although I am not a native speaker, I have worked as a translator and tutor in Spanish for years. I lived in Mexico after college and developed my fluency among native Spanish-speakers as much as possible. Whether you prefer flash cards, reading stories, listening to music, or direct conversation, we will come up with ways to make learning Spanish fun and interesting for you.
I am passionate about education and look forward to working with you. Contact me with any questions you have or to schedule lessons. Thanks for reading and for" less...
