Written Testimonials

Truly gifted educator
"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 working with our daughter for the past month, and my daughter believes Ben is the best tutor teacher she’s ever had."         -Scott M., PA

Automatic Admissions
"I really enjoyed working with Ben. He is thorough, yet able to cover a lot of information in every session. He is very personable to work with and I felt more confident after every lesson. I also liked being able to do it via video conferencing because I had a very busy schedule and this made it extremely convenient. In addition, he is extremely knowledgeable in every subject matter and taught me a tremendous amount of material. There wasn't anything he couldn't explain. Working with Ben gave me more than enough to get automatic admissions into both of my top-choice colleges!"     -Colin W., MO

Ben was key
"Ben was key in helping my son, Colin improve! A friend of mine found Ben, and her son performed very well after working with him, so she shared the success story with a group of us moms over breakfast. I then got Ben's contact info. My son really enjoyed working with Ben and even asked to do a session over spring break. He gave Colin a personalized game plan, which I believe was key to keeping him on track. I have a sophomore son who will be working with Ben in the upcoming months. I highly recommend reaching out to Ben for help!"     -Erin W., MO

"Ben helped my son 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!"      -Tevis B., NY

Great from the first lesson
"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 tests 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."      -Laura H., MI

Knowledgeable and helpful
"Zack learned better strategy and time management from Ben. Felt it was totally worth his time."    -Heather D., UT

Great last minute help
"I have taken the SAT various times and keep scoring the same in the reading section. Within 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."      -Alejandro H., FL

Wonderfully Encouraging!
"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 couldn't thank Ben enough for his time and help getting my son ACT ready in less than 3 weeks time. I don't think my son would have achieved this without Ben's help! The skills my son learned will continue to come in handy for him for years to come. Thank you so much, Ben!"     -Sarah O., MN
