Hi! My name is Ben and I am currently an undergraduate student at Cornell University. Enrolled in the number one Plant Science program in the country, I am also on the Pre-Med track and hope to join the U.S. Army after medical school. On campus, I am a teaching assistant for an undergraduate biology lab course. Here, I am able to learn new teaching techniques for a variety of students. On the side, I have privately tutored students of various skill levels and grades. I love many topics, whether it be math and chemistry to social studies and politics. Utilizing various active learning strategies, I make it my priority to have my students have fun learning to help develop their own passions. In my free time, I am part of the Hydroponics Club, Weightlifting Club, Rec Baseball, Alpha Iota Gamma (Pre-Health Fraternity), Club Golf Team, and participate in several social cultural associations. I look forward to working with you!
