About Benicia

I have a master's degree in TESOL, and a Bachelor of Science in community development. I was a preschool teacher for many years, and a community health worker, teaching the nontraditional student, in their home.
After 12 years working in the community, I have become a very adaptable person, willing and enthusiastic about meeting and engaging with all types of people from all over the world, of different ages. In fact, I believe it is a privilege to serve others. My hope is that I can give you new tools in your tool box, so to speak. Which means, I work with a strength based practice, meeting the student where they are at, and expanding their knowledge. We all come to the table with something, some understanding. I want to allow for the student to show me where they shine, so I can build on the knowledge they have already acquired.
An example would be a young lady who knows a lot about baseball, but has a difficult time reading. I want to focus on her interest and see what we can do to grow her reading, peak her interest in it. My interest would be to find ways to relate what she needs to know with her love of baseball. What does this look like? Well, we don't know, exactly, because everyone brings something different, so each interaction is unique. I am a strong advocate of, "They don't care what you know, until they know you care." I care, and I look forward to discussing how we may be a fit to begin your tutoring!
