About Ben U.

Columbus, OH

View Full Profile

It is my grasp of foreign languages that makes me an effective English teacher. For instance, learning the complex grammar of Latin and Greek gave me a thorough understanding of English grammar and the ability to relate to other people’s native languages. I have spent many hours proofreading papers for international students. They find my instruction especially informative because I not only fix mistakes but provide an explanation. When I point out the patterns of grammar, similar mistakes show up less and less, and my students feel more confident that they are writing sentences correctly.

I learned English teaching methods through my tutoring experience. Over a span of four months, I gave a Turkish visiting scholar a systematic overview of English grammar and allowed him to apply it through conversation.

About Ben
Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad


As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Professor Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

Wether it's grammar, conversation, speaking, or writing..English should be fun and not a struggle! I love teaching and getting students (young and not-so-young) to enjoy the process of learning. {:

About Alexandra
Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!

Alexandra is an excellent instructor. She has a great friendly style with people of all ages and actors of all experience levels. Alexandra is very detailed oriented. This is beneficial to actors in that she makes sure you all are breaking down the script and asking all the right questions regarding the text, your role, and your scene partner's role. I feel you will learn a lot with Alexandra, as I did, and enjoy your time with her.

I am very happy to have met Alexa during my stay in Los Angeles. Her classes were excellent as well as her methodology. She helped me a lot to improve my English skills and suggested me a lot of books, apps, podcasts and other support tools.
I really recommend her as an ESL teacher!

Learning English is not complicated anymore if you got a right teacher! Let's take the journey together!

About Milad
Hi! My name is Milad. I am a Ph.D candidate (Doctorate level) in teaching languages at San Diego State University in California. I'd like to help you learn Farsi with my self-invented teaching strategies! I am the author of a book entitled" What makes you motivated to learn the vocabulary of a language".

I have written and published several scientific papers in leading language teaching/learning journals. Join my class today and enjoy learning Farsi or English with an experienced teacher!

I am writing this review after just completing my 8th lesson with Milad, and having already begun to converse. I have studied several languages before, and tried to learn some on my own, and I can say without a doubt that Milad is the best language teacher I have ever worked with. Unlike most language classes that start with the typical 'my name is' and 'where are you from', Milad starts by teaching the grammar, conjugation, and whatever vocabulary that comes up through the class, allowing you to learn to speak as you go along. In the span of eight weeks, his approach has allowed me to adequately grasp Farsi grammar, and also to learn a very wide vocabulary. I have just begun listening to Farsi podcasts and news, and although native speakers speak very quickly I am still able to identify words, and understand sentences. I cannot recommend him enough!

Milad is a very patient and knowledgeable language instructor. He likes to break down the rules of grammar to help his students learn to make their own sentences vs. canned memorized phrases. I really enjoy working with him and highly recommend him to others!
