I've spent the last six years as a tutor and Writing Specialist at both De Anza Community College and San Jose State University. It was at De Anza that I developed a passion for teaching. As a teacher, I learned the excitement of instilling not only facts and information into the minds of the people I worked with, but also confidence and excitement in them as well. There was nothing more fulfilling than seeing a student, frustrated and discouraged, become motivated, positive, and successful b...
I need to get a job and he provides great help focusing on concrete skills, like interview skills, cover letter and so on. Ben is able to highly customize my lesson plans. He is also very flexible when it comes to scheduling and location. He has much experience to teach students. I am poor at listening English but he tries to kindly explain me again and again until I understand.

I learned the gramticcal rules I asked to learn. He efficiently answered questions and was patient throughout the lesson. His explanations were simple to follow and I could tell he is experienced through his knowledgeable teachings of the material throughout the lesson.

As an English learner, I'd worked with a number of different tutors since I moved to America. Thanks god! I finally met Ben. I know how hard to find someone who really knows how to teach and manage a lesson. I reached him through Wyzant to get help regarding my college writing project, about which I didn't understand clearly. After our first lesson, I could create a well structured outline because he helped me to organize my ideas and taught me how to develop each paragraph. Ben does not write or edit a paper for you, but help and teach you to enhance your writing and critical thinking skills.
I can confidently recommend Ben; he is a knowledgeable, patient, and experienced English teacher. I will definitely continue to work with him.
