About Benny


Bio

I'm a recent graduate of Bates College (Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude) currently working as a nearly full-time tutor at an after-school program with a demographic that includes ELL students and new Mainers, adults trying to receive professional certifications, students in school from K-12 across subject lines. I have held this job for a year and will continue on for the next. I have extensive tutoring experience with K-12 students going back into my undergrad and high school days as...

I'm a recent graduate of Bates College (Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude) currently working as a nearly full-time tutor at an after-school program with a demographic that includes ELL students and new Mainers, adults trying to receive professional certifications, students in school from K-12 across subject lines. I have held this job for a year and will continue on for the next. I have extensive tutoring experience with K-12 students going back into my undergrad and high school days as well.

My strengths in tutoring are in getting students comfortable, excited, and more advanced in reading, writing and the humanities (a teaching certification is on the way!). I believe in engaging students with attention to their learning style. I try to be not only open-minded and warm but also cognizant of how a student's way of life (interests, background, etc.) need to be integrated into their work, even in math and the hard sciences, for it to "stick" into successful learning. I look forward to working with you!

Experience. I have worked with many adults and children just learning English and am used to working with ELL materials.

I have a strong background in proofreading writing, having been an editorial intern at two publications in my undergrad. I studied literature in college.

If it seems like working together would be a good fit, please feel free to contact me to find out more or schedule a lesson. I look forward to it!

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

For the past two years I have worked one-on-one with students who have ADHD and other behavioral challenges across the spectrum of need. I am aware of best practices and generally target my lessons based on the student's preferred learning style - especially with ADHD, I have found it helpful to have fully embodied, active lessons that allow different levels of engagement to work with wherever a kid is at on that given day (having a movement, writing, reading-only, and multimedia element to supplement the lesson on-hand, using whatever is the best fit for the child on that day).
