Qualifications & Experience

I am an experienced tutor and educator, and I would love to help you (or your child) understand science. I have tutored well over 200 students individually since I began my work in NYC 4.5 years ago. In addition to tutoring, I teach chemistry at a state university and SAT Biology/Chemistry test prep classes with private high school students. My strength is in motivating and connecting with students while simplifying difficult concepts. I strongly believe in good study habits and the power of mnemonic devices for remembering important information. I tune into my students so both of us enjoy working together and learning. I have helped students excel through better performance on homework assignments, class projects, exams and standardized tests.

I tutor a wide range of science and math:
Biology - Regents, SAT II, AP
Chemistry - Regents, SAT II, AP
Physics - Regents, SAT II
Algebra - Common Core, Regents
Geometry - Common Core, Regents

Daphne was extremely comfortable working with Benny and found him very engaging on the subject matter as well as in general as a person. Benny was able to pace out the work in a manner that allowed Daphne to gain confidence in the subject matter. We were really happy with Benny as a tutor and found that he had the perfect demeanor and personality to help Daphne master the subject matter and gain confidence. We would definitely recommend Benny.

Benny was an excellent tutor and really cared about how our son did on his subject test. He prepared our son well and was very positive, patient, and a good explainer. We have used several other tutors and Benny is the best of them so far. He cares more. He is a patient and dedicated teacher and a good person.

Benny has tutored my daughter for two years now and I highly recommend him. I have found that Benny is able to explain concepts and ideas in a way that the student can easily understand. He comes prepared to teach and often has visual tools that he employs during his lessons. All of this serves to make the experience more enjoyable and interesting for the student. Benny is also very passionate about his work and we have found that he is able to encourage and inspire my daughter as well. I personally have found that Benny has a very broad range of knowledge in numerous subjects and in my opinion is very well qualified as a tutor or instructor. In addition Benny makes himself available via phone or email for those times when my daughter has a question and needs his assistance.
