Teaching assistant

I have worked in the Economics tutoring lab and have been the TA for Law and Economics, Introduction to Econometrics (with teaching recitations), Energy Markets and Policy (masters and undergraduate students), and Economic Data Analysis (with teaching recitations).

Select comments from Econometrics student evaluations

"Ben made the recitations into a good use of time and made them enjoyable. It was more than 'just another slideshow.' It was engaging. Ben is enthusiastic about teaching, something which is sometimes hard to encounter among grad students. "

"Ben's enthusiasm makes him a natural at teaching as he's able to keep our attention as well as keep us awake at 8 AM. I'd take a full course taught by Ben any day."

"Always seemed enthusiastic and gave insightful examples. Genuinely cares if students learn and participate."

"The way you teach is a way students can understand."
