I come from an engineering background so math and science have always been a part of my life. I have been tutoring Calculus and Physics for years and enjoy the opportunity to work with others to help them understand it as well.

I am a goal oriented individual and that comes through in my teaching. I try to be as objective as I can, working towards tests, homework, quizzes. Going through practice problems is often the best way of identifying challenges and strengthening your knowledge as a whole. Whatever you decide your math and science goal is, I am looking forward to helping you work towards it.

About Ben K.

“It is not the critic that counts”

Commonly attributed to Theodore Roosevelt, The Man the Arena is about action, striving and failure. We all have our own journeys and our own goals. I am a strong believer in working towards goals but any goal worth achieving will have its fair share of failure along the way. There is nothing wrong with failing, we all have our challenges, what matters is taking the risk to succeed.

Ben is knowledgeable and patient. After a couple of times working with Ben, my son feels much more comfortable with his Physics class.

I couldn't be more impressed. Ben is great. I was really stressed and he helped me work through online calculus problems. It helped a lot.

Ben was great. He helped my daughter prepare for and pass her AP Calculus test.

Having someone there to walk you through the process of studying did a lot to reduce the stress of taking the AP exam.

Highly Recommended.

Ben helped me with Calculus 1061 at U of Cincinnati. He was a life saver. He worked through the online problems with me and explained the right way to approach them. I would not have passed the class without him. Thank you.

He was really patient and made things much simpler than in class. I am glad I had him around when I took Calculus.

It is obvious that Ben has a lot of experience. My son spoke highly of him and praised his forthright and direct way of teaching.

Ben tutored me a couple years back in Physics. He was a life saver. He explained things much better than my professors. It saved me a lot of stress.
