About Benjamin

I specialize in helping students with brainstorming, free writing, paragraph writing and sentence cohesion, thesis creation, essay structure, research papers, MLA formatting, utilizing online databases, avoiding bad research, and basically all that goes with writing. While I focus on the subject matter of English, I can assist with a paper in any of the humanities disciplines, and I can even help with preparing the script for a speech or debate. I am an avid writer of fictional stories, so I can provide assistance to students in Creative Writing as well.

My education includes; over six years of experience as an English tutor working directly with students of all ages. I have been an Instructional Aide in a couple of K-5 schools as well as a tutor for a charter high school.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English Studies from California State University where I graduated with honors. Shortly after that, I earned my CTC 30 Day California Emergency Credential which is current through 2017. Additionally; in preparation for a credential program I passed the English CSET in 2014. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions regarding my background and qualifications. I have passed the background check through WyzAnt as well as FBI/DOJ fingerprint clearances for Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Diego Counties.

Thanks for taking a look at my profile; I hope I can be of help now or in the future!

I have tutored a facets of the English discipline over the past six years with students of all ages and skill levels. My major in college, where I graduated Cum Laude, was Literature studies, so my skills were constantly put to the test through reading, writing, and presenting on topics regarding English and its sub-categories.

I have been an avid reader for my entire life. throughout my college career, I had to read critically to assess a variety of opinions and facts regarding subjects I would research. Additionally, I tutored other junior college and college-level students in grammar, reading and writing for over five years in the campus learning center.

Social Studies

The discipline of History (American, British, Latin American, and Pan-African) was my first focus in college. I completed over twenty-four semester units during my tenure at both junior college and university. To this day, I am always learning about American history when I travel. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English Studies from California State University where I graduated with honors.

Since I was in grade school, my vocabulary testing scores have been high. During my college career, I picked up genre-specific terminology not normally used in common dialectical speech.
