"In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity."
Ben was born in raised in San Pedro, California. Being raised by a teacher, Ben naturally gravitated towards a career in teaching. From volunteering at the local Boys and Girls Club while in high school, to assisting and leading AVID classes at Chemawa Indian School while in college, education has always been a rewarding experience.
After getting a degree in Anthropology at Willamette University, Ben went on to work at Lindamood-Bell ® as a clinician, consultant, and Center Director in the South Bay. Through countless of clinical hours, Ben has gained experience that allows him to develop underlying skills used in reading fluency, comprehension, vocabulary acquisition, and written expression. After moving on to ZETA in 2017, Ben has continued to work with students in a one-on-one setting to address the individual needs of each student-- weather it be for remediation or to reinforce skills used in curriculum.
