About Benay

I have been teaching for almost six years, and it has been a rewarding experience the entire way. I love working with children and adults alike, and think that the best part of education is seeing understanding on a student's face when everything finally clicks. My approach to education is simple--I don't believe in giving answers. My job as a tutor or teacher is to provide the tools and direction to enable students to think for themselves, and to come to their own conclusions.

I have been tutoring English and writing for five years. I worked at the FSU reading and writing center tutoring college students, and have also worked with elementary aged students at Riley Elementary. I can assist with any stage of writing a paper, from understanding the prompt to finishing the final draft, and everything in between. I have taught reading skills and comprehension along with writing skills, and can work with any age group in any of these subjects.

I endeavor to be as flexible as possible to fit your schedule, so please do not hesitate to contact me and we can what can be worked out. Because of this, I do ask that you give at least 1 hour's notice if you need to cancel for any reason. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
