I have a BSEE (Electronics Engineering), 1967, from U.C. Berkeley and a BA, cum laude, 2010, in Music from San Jose State University. I presently have 12 piano students whom I teach privately. I'm an experienced substitute teacher in the Cupertino and Campbell School districts, where I teach K-8. I can teach nearly all subjects. I'm also on the staff at the Music Department at Stanford and at the Community School of Music and Arts in Mountain View. I am known to give clear explanations an...

It is a joy to meet with Mr. Benjamin! He is knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. His lessons make me very clear about which parts I need to improve for CBEST writing. With his encouragement, I could write a short essay by myself instead of feeling scared to write. It is amazing!

Highly recommended - Benjamin tailors the lessons to what the student wants to learn, and how they learn - guiding while helping them enjoy the lesson and gain the love of music. Benjamin himself certainly loves Piano and music himself and enjoys teaching.

Mr. Benjamin teaches AP world history for my high school son. He is very knowledgeable and patient. My son is very interested in history now. Mr. Benjamin is very easy to reach and very flexible. He is very nice and sweet too.

I went in wanting to study for the ASVAB. I don't have very many strong points when it comes to education, but Ben was very patient and helping me on even the simplest problems I wasn't understanding. He made sure I strived for the best I could get to then even higher. By far the best tutor I've ever had.

He was very patient and excellent explaining. In the end, my daughter actually told me that Physics is simple! That is a total attitude change.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Benjamin since early last year, she has made tremendous progresses. Being also a sub teacher in Cupertino School District, Mr. Benjamin knows well how to deal with young children. My daughter connected with him immediately after the first lesson. Mr. Benjamin does his lesson plans carefully to suit individual student. He is very patient yet firm with children. Mr. Benjamin not only teaches student the techniques, but also spend great effort in showing them how to read notes. Most importantly, he inspires kids to love music! We are blessed to have Mr. Benjamin as our teacher and would highly recommend to anyone, children or adults, who want to learn how to play piano and music in general!

I am extremely fortunate to have come across Benjamin. We got his help for my son who was taking an AP Music Theory course and was struggling on the ear training part of the class. With just over a month of help, my son's ear training test grades went from a low of 52% to 100%, moving his grade up 5% to earn an A. This would not have been possible without Benjamin's great help. He always comes on time, is extremely flexible, and stays as long as needed until you are comfortable with the material. In addition, his passion for music really is one of his greatest qualities as a music teacher, making the overall experience amazing. We would absolutely recommend Benjamin to anyone looking for help in music.

Ben is an amazing tutor who is very patient and knows his stuff. I desperately needed a tutor for a music theory class. Safe to say I was a deer in the headlights in the beginning of the semester. With Ben's help I went from an F to an A! He shows up to all appointments early or on time and has a flexible schedule. He is very nice guy who shows up prepared and will even bring in printouts he thinks will help you out. This is my first time I've ever used a tutor on this site and I'm pleased to say I found a great tutor.

I had a college music theory class to test out of, which means that I had to learn about 10 weeks of material during the 2-3 weeks of break I had between quarters. Benjamin D taught me the material step by step, in a way that first gave me a solid foundation of knowledge, and then built up my understanding of the theory. The tutoring was clear and efficient, and I felt very confident about testing out. I ended up passing and now I'm part of the music department.
