My passion is helping others write. I was fortunate enough to serve as a writing center tutor at Emory University -- often voted the #1 college for writers -- for three years and helped over 100+ students supercharge their writing skills in just 50 minute sessions. Word got around campus that I was an editing wizard and I soon thereafter started a company assisting students with writing their college applications. My record includes landing students at universities such as Wake Forest, UNC Chapel Hill, Carnegie Mellon, Columbia University, Oberlin College and other elite schools.

I can help you or your older child with all types of advanced writing -- from standard essays to college applications to research papers. The way I like to structure lessons is to start by understanding your needs. I'm happy to focus on the big-picture, analyzing your paper's argument, use of evidence and structure while talking through any grammatical issues as they arise or vice versa.

About Ben S.

I am a professional in both Excel and Writing. I've logged thousands of hours on Excel for world-class companies like Uber and Gartner, and then packaged those data insights into compelling written reports. My passion is rooted in helping others succeed and empowering you to achieve your goals. I'm a very empathetic teacher and will be highly conscious of your individual needs as a learner.

I graduated from Emory University in 2014 with a degree in liberal arts and, in addition to teaching Excel, I'm also a veteran in helping with college applications and writing writ large. I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in 2014 to teach university students abroad in English writing and speaking skills. Through the college admissions company I founded, I've helped students gain entrance into elite universities such as Wake Forest, UNC Chapel Hill, Oberlin, Carnegie Mellon, and Columbia University.
