My name is Sonya Stinson, and I currently work as a pre-school through 5th grade Spanish and P.E. teacher. I am a certified English teacher for grades 6-12. Additionally, I attend night classes at CSU, Sacramento and am in the Master's of English program there. I have worked with children my whole life. I started off as a paid babysitter at age 11. I worked summer camps for several years, worked as a teacher, as a residential counselor at the Sacramento Children's Home, and am back to teaching.
Tutoring is rewarding and fun and is a great way to help a student get ahead or catch up. By working closely and with the one-to-one ratio, much progress can be achieved.

I hope that if you are looking to get ahead or strengthen a particular skill, you'll contact me for more information.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Sonya
