I have worked as a tutor for several years and taught a variety of subjects. My main goal is to equip every student with tools they need to be successful. I care more about comprehension and learning, than grades. I work with each student individual to develop a personalized plan of organization, motivation, and accountability.

About Benjamin

I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, where I extensively studied the anatomy of the voice. I am th

I'm really thrilled with my lessons with Ben! I can see improvements and am given clear instructions as to how to practice. My aim is to sing well and with confidence and he's supporting that endeavor.

One class and I learned so much! No guessing what I am supposed to be working on. Easy to follow instructions and straight to the point. Looking forward to working together

Ben - You can't expect to be an excellent singer over night

Me - Oh yeah I can (in my mind)

(end of lesson)

Me - I'm done (I quit)!

Ben - You're getting it; it takes time and practice (learning your voice).

Six month update: I am still very much pleased with my lessons with Ben. My confidence is growing and I'm actually starting to understand how to use my voice. I may not be where I want to be Yet, but I'm moving in the right direction; it takes time and practice.

I took AP World History and AP US History in high school. I love analyzing events in history and seeing connections/causes/effects between seemingly unrelated events. I stress long-term understanding instead of short-term memorizing of events/dates.

I also have close to 8 years of math/science tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Jonathan is without a doubt a talented professional photographer / artist. Yet he has adapted himself to working with a novice trying to navigate a new digital camera before a big Patagonia vacation of a lifetime. Whether you are a beginner like I am or a professional photographer looking to improve your game, Jonathan will exceed your expectations. I like his patient and calm approach to my questions and after only two lessons I have already improved so much.
Jeff W.
I have learned a lot from Jonathan so far. He has been very helpful in helping me understand PhotoShop and Lightroom. I would highly recommend him.

Jonathan is a really good instructor. He has helped me out a lot so far with the different software applications to do with photography. I’m still learning, but every lesson I get more invaluable information from him.
I would highly recommend him.

"Larry is an incredible teacher. I was never bored at any lessons, Larry had me thinking hard every lesson, challenging the way I looked at history. I feel like not only did I learned what happened in history but I came out of it looking through a different paradigm.

I recommend him to everyone."

"We have very lively discussions which are less like lectures and more like questions and answers. Since Larry is very knowledgeable, he is flexible in where we take our lessons. We've started with Classic Greek but we've also delved into other periods. This makes it quite enjoyable, since it's nice to be able to bounce around at times."
