I had a lot of trouble learning to Read and Write, now I want to help you learn from my mistakes. (Chicago)

I provide tutoring in reading and writing for students grades 2-12. Whether your student is struggling with the basics of reading and writing or they're looking to sharpen their writing in preparation for college I can help them develop the skills they'll need for a lifetime of success.

As a child I struggled a great deal to learn the basic reading and writing skills that are essential to academic success. With a lot of support and several excellent teachers I've been able to overcome the challenges I faced and I want to use my experiences to help your student do the same.

I teach reading, modernist literature, creative writing, dissertation and thesis writing preparation, test prep. Lessons are available for the following levels: primary school, junior high / middle school, sophomore, junior, senior, college, adult education
I give lessons in person at the student's home.

Ben's Experience

I aim to support what students already know and help them develop their own ideas to foster a lifelong love of learning. I believe that the key to helping children learn to read and write is to teach them to express their own thoughts and ideas without fear of judgment.

My goal is for students to ask their own questions rather than just give answers.

Ben's resume

I am currently completing my Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Creative Writing, expected graduation May 2017.

Additional relevant coursework includes: Educational Psychology, Educational Policy Studies, Introduction to Teaching of English, Teaching of Spoken Word Poetry, Teaching of Reading and Teaching of Writing.

...and many, many hours spent working with special education professionals throughout elementary and middle school.
