At University, a passion ignited within him for teaching and mentoring fellow college students. He began substitute teaching shortly after graduation.

He’s looking for all the best Asian and burger restaurants in Austin and tries to recreate many of the things he eats. Living near friends and family, he is glad to be back in Austin.
Ben enjoys working with students of all abilities and skill sets. He has experience working with kids on the spectrum and with learning disabilities. His love for math and science bleeds through his classroom doors!
