Benjamin Weiner

Partner

Ben Weiner has worked as a tutor and academic mentor for the past fifteen years. During this time, he has honed his skills as a language arts expert. He has helped numerous students improve their grades and SAT scores, learn to write with precision, and gain confidence. He holds a bachelor’s degree in English from UCLA.

From 2002 to 2010, Ben worked with two distinct student demographics within the Los Angeles area. The first group consisted of students attending the prestigious Harvard-Westlake School, a private academy ranked among the top college preparatory schools in America. The second group consisted of Korean-American students attending public high school within the critically underfunded Los Angeles Unified School District.

Through his experiences with such differing clients, Ben has become an extremely adaptable educator. He is equally comfortable working with students who are Ivy League legacies and students who will be the first in their families to attend college.

Ben recently returned to Los Angeles after spending time as a foreign English teacher in Asia. He continues to work with a diverse group of promising high school students.

Specializations: SAT Critical Reading and Writing, Literature, Writing Mechanics, European and American History.

Students have gone on to: Yale, Stanford, Brown, Amherst, University of Pennsylvania, University of Michigan, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, NYU, Wesleyan.
