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!

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.
