    Benjamin Blackman has taught literature, history, philosophy, and composition at the university level for more than seven years. He holds a PhD in English from the University of California, Davis, and a BA in English and Communication Arts from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he won undergraduate awards for his honors thesis. His research focuses on British literature, science fiction, and Romanticism, and he has presented much of his work at academic conferences. Benjamin also has experience tutoring students on the GRE and GMAT. His passion for working with young people began with being a camp counselor as a teenager, and he’s thrilled to be able to continue this work in the classroom. Benjamin believes that reading and studying literature and history can help students (and teachers!) see the world anew. When he’s not teaching, reading, or writing, he loves to hike, go to the movies, and fix old watches.
