"My name is Ben, and I'm entering my 4th year at UCSB as a pre-med Bio-Chemistry student. In my spare time I like to play soccer and rock climb. During my two most recent years at UCSB, I was a Lab Assistant for the freshman General Chemistry labs. I have a younger sister and as a result have been doing some form of tutoring all my life. I've learned that the best way have a student remember a concept is to guide them to the answer themselves, rather than simply supply them with direct answers to problems.

I just finished a year of tutoring, employed by my college, where I taught three classes of 10-20 first year chemistry students in a supplementary course that assisted students who needed or wanted extra help while taking the intro chemistry series. As part of my job, I also tutored two students one-on-one twice a week. I have lots of experience with both individual and group tutoring, and pride myself in the ability to pinpoint what concepts a student is struggling to understand, and explain them in a way that makes sense to the student.

I've loved math my entire life, and am proficient up to the level of Calculus 3, but prefer to tutor algebra and high school level math. I scored 800 (full marks) on the math section on the SAT, and have been tutoring my younger sister in math since I was old enough to talk. I'd be happy to tutor general mathematics for class, or help a student prep for an upcoming standardized test.

Chemistry is by far my favorite subject. I entered UCSB as a Biology major, and switched to Biochemistry when I started learning more about chemistry and decided I did not want my journey in the subject to end so soon. I have been teaching chemistry for the past 3 years, and know all of general chem like the back of my hand. I am also engaging in active Chemistry research in a lab at UCSB and still taking upper level chemistry classes, so all the knowledge is fresh.

Please feel free to contact me via email or phone with any inquiries. I'd love to get a chance to m" less...
