About Benjamin

I’m Ben Savoie and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Pure Mathematics at the University of Arizona. It is my first year at the University of Arizona, but when I begin my research, I plan to focus on Algebraic Number Theory. After completing my PhD, my goal is to become a full time Mathematics professor at a university, so that I can continue to teach and do research. When I’m not working on math, I enjoy watching movies, reading books, and spending time with friends.

I have been tutoring math since my first year in my undergraduate degree. At first, I was hired by the University of Michigan to tutor students one-on-one in courses including pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, pre-Calculus, and Calculus. After one year of this, I additionally was hired as a supplemental instructor. This consisted of tutoring students one-on-one and holding supplemental lectures for the students twice a week. Soon after that, I also began tutoring at Carman Ainsworth High School. I visited the high school several times a week and tutored students one-on-one in all of the math classes offered, ranging from Algebra to AP Calculus. Once I arrived at the University of Arizona, I was hired as a teaching assistant. This year I am one of the main instructors for a pre-Algebra course. Next year I will be the instructor for an Algebra course.

When I tutor, I am relaxed and friendly. I know many students have a fear of math, so I am not harsh if they do not understand a topic. On the other hand, I believe any student can succeed in their math course. If a student is struggling to understand my explanation of a topic, I will think of another way to explain it to them. I haven’t forgotten when I had to learn these topics and I occasionally struggled with them, so I am good at pinpointing where students get stuck and thinking of different ways to help them learn.
