"I specialize in helping anyone become more aware of the benefits, for themselves and the world, that come from the practice of discovering, expressing and supporting ideas in English," he says. "I also specialize in helping anyone get good at it."
Committed to guiding students through the exploration and practice of creative writing, Ben also emphasizes the significance of reading skills.
Ben is a percussionist, singer, guitar player, essayist, publisher and song writer. "I grew up in the outdoors and credit experiences in the wilderness with forming my character, including my desire to teach well."
