Current PhD student at UC Merced
ExperienceI've been tutoring people of various ages, from elementary school to college, since high school. I've brought struggling elementary school students up to grade level and helped college students with their most challenging courses. I just really enjoying helping students understand difficult subjects. Watching someone's face light up when they "get it," is a fantastic experience.
I have a clean, quiet, apartment that works just fine for meeting, but the Rice Library is also equipped with study rooms and there are numerous cafes nearby. I am also happy to tutor by skype for those with intractable commutes.
Here is a summary of subjects I am comfortable tutoring by skill level:
Advanced College (even if you are a Junior or Senior taking 3-400 level courses I can help here): Physics, Math, Environmental Engineering, Earth Science, etc., Essays, Literature and Scientific Papers
College level (This includes AP courses): History since the Renaissance, Cognitive Science, Russian, General Chemistry, Computer Science
High School: Everything but Art and Music
In sum: I'm happy to teach everything from 3rd grade to quantum.
SAT: 800 Critical Reading 770 Math 700 Writing
HobbiesI am an active swing dancer and have been for 7 years. I also like the typical leisure activities, reading and playing games and such. I'm a patient and optimistic person you can count on to bring some good cheer.

Ben is a thorough and patient tutor that helped me to reach my ultimate goals for my physics class. Things were looking bleak after my first test, so I reached out to Ben. After working with Ben regularly, my scores steadily improved, and I was able to earn a respectable grade for the course. Ben knew the material very well. He was also incredibly patient with me and was willing to go over the material with me until I got the hang of it. During my tests and final exam, I was able to recall specific details that Ben taught me during our sessions, and they translated to correct answers on my exams. I would highly recommend Ben for any physics needs. You will be in good hands!
Ben was very personable and offered alot by way of his teaching skills. I actually stayed with him longer than expected to accomplish more understanding of physics. I would definitely use Ben again and recommend him highly. Kyle C.
Ben, is an awesome tutor. Not only is he incredibly intelligent but he has the ability to relate complicated material, such as physics, to people who have no understanding of it whatsoever...like me. I failed my first exam in College Physics without any tutoring from Ben but now, after being tutored by Ben, I am confident that I will ace my next exam. Ben is truly gifted and genuinely cares about people doing well and learning the material...which I think is rare. Point being: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
