Your English and academic coach - Benjamin Burg

I am an entrepreneur at heart. Over 10 years teaching, I designed every single lesson plan never using a textbook.

 

I love nature and history.   When I teach, I use critical thinking.  There is no such thing as memorization.  Perhaps because I believe the earth is alive, I am constantly searching for the logical connection. This leads me to understand  patterns that create foundations to develop more complex comprehension.

 

I have been blessed with amazing teachers my whole life.  Kimberton Waldorf School and all the wonderful teachers that gave me the core foundation of nearly all academic and artistic subjects. The University of Pennsylvania while surrounded by the highest standards, I embraced Penn's goal to learn and then share it with the community.
