Staff Spotlight - Benjamin Savoy

I'm Ben Savoy and this will be my 2nd summer on staff after being a camper. I'm from Encino, CA and am finishing my Junior year at Notre Dame High School. Since the beginning of 2016, my math tutoring business has continued to thrive. Every Sunday, I schedule my clients for the upcoming week, and every day, I am constantly tutoring either my peers or my clients. Because of my strong love for math and investing, this year I started the Investment Club at my school. What started as a hobby is now a "job." Whether I'm preparing powerpoints for the students to educate them about the stock market or I'm pondering about other interesting ideas, I am always thinking about math. I love helping others and I really enjoy seeing the people I help succeed
