What our clients say:
Ben is a truly gifted educator dedicated to driving exceptional outcomes for each student. The observable improvement realized in such a short period of time has been remarkable. Ben has been tutoring our daughter for SAT for the past month, and my daughter believes Ben is the best tutor/teacher she’s ever had.
Ben took the time to start reviewing test taking theories and methods with my son. He went through questions my son got wrong on his practice test and explained WHY they were wrong and explained how to get to the right answer. He gave clear directions on what he should do before the next lesson. My son really liked the way he taught.
I have taken the SAT various times and keep scoring the same in the reading section. With two lessons, Ben gave me great time management tips and logically explained the answers I got wrong in practice questions. With his help, I saw a big improvement in the time it took me to finish the readings and I improved my overall confidence.
Ben helped my son master the essay portion of the SAT and taught him precisely what and how he needed to improve. Ben has a great, easy-going personality and my son thoroughly enjoyed working with him. We will definitely use him again!

Ben really cares about his students. He goes beyond miles to help his students always. Easily accessible and very knowledgeable. My son really enjoys class with Ben.
Very knowledgeable, patient, adapted to a last minute situation wonderfully. Clear and concise directions, broke down information so that it was easy to understand the information presented.
While my son had taken a 6 week test prep class at his high school, and had a good score of a 30 in English, his goal was to move it higher. With Ben's help understanding how he individually tests and where he struggles, my son was able to raise his score 3 points to a 33! I don't think my son would have achieved this without Ben's help!
Ben worked with my son for the reading and English portion of the ACT. He was extremely helpful and encouraging. We interviewed many tutors and used another tutor who was double the price, with poor results. Ben exceeded expectations. I would recommend him to anyone.
My son really connected with Ben and his style, found the time to be very helpful, and he said Ben made it fun:) He was also very accessible if we had a question. My son's score went up over 100 points on the SAT to ACT conversion chart. My son studied hard, but Ben was very inspirational in helping him get these results. Thank you!!
