“Sometimes a student has a teacher whose commitment and passion is real and true. Our son experienced Ben’s gift for educating, guiding and motivating students to be the best that they can be without forsaking their identity. We were lucky to land where Ben taught and, with our son, recommend and endorse him both as an educator and an outstanding human being.” —Leslie Ruggiero


For almost twenty years, I have worked with dozens of middle and high school students, focusing particularly on creative and analytical writing, reading comprehension, and the development of study skills, time-management techniques, and executive functioning and organizational skills. I have also engaged with students to build their confidence as readers, writers, and thinkers and to increase their feelings of self-worth and control over their own academic success. Families appreciate the depth of my subject knowledge, my thoughtful nature, my sense of humor, and my ability to connect, both with the material and with their children.

I am available to work with students throughout Fairfield County over the summer and during the academic year, both on my own and through my partnership as an education specialist and organizational consultant with the organizing experts at In Order to Succeed®.
