Testimonials about Ben

Ben is awesome, very well qualified and caring, always ready to help and flexible with his schedule. He's ready to not only help me with chemistry, which is what we hired him for, but also with AP tests, SAT’s and other misc. He's the best. Definitely sign up!

I would tell a friend that HSA Tutoring is very beneficial, and the tutors are diligent and motivated in helping you improve. Ben was particularly helpful in explaining different ways to approach different types of problems in addition to explaining the specific material. My experience has been very helpful, and has improved my confidence about taking the SAT Math Subject Test!
