Math is one of my specialties. Whenever a student tells me that he or she is unable to do math, I welcome that as a fun challenge. Math is not impossible - you just haven't grasped it yet.

I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

Super grateful to have picked the best instructor to teach me!! After each lesson you become more knowledgeable with singing and your voice and I can’t wait to continue to progress and become better over time!! Literally with just 5 minutes of his exercises each day you start to improve!!
Mike E.
Ben is an extremely knowledgable teacher. I've worked with several teachers in the past, but none of them were able to teach me how to sing properly like Ben has been able to. I'm very lucky to be learning from him!

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.
