Benedict College (Bachelor of Arts)
Hello, My name is Carla. I use to live Tonopah,Arizona and decided to tutor. I speak, fluent Cherokee, Comanche and Spanish. I am part Inca, Cherokee, Comanchee and Spanish. I have my associate in Public Administration and my bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Studies. I graduated from Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina in 2008 with honors. I was 53 at the time of graduating. It took me a while but I did it.
I used to tutor at Benedict in Spanish and English. I enjoyed working with the Professor Hardy whom not only became a friend but a mentor as well. The college where I attended was an all African American College but diversified due to the various programs it had.
I enjoyed tutoring because it gave me a sense of completion when the student came back with an A paper or A or on their test.
At times it was not easy because I came to know the students and some did not care to learn. They were only there due to their parents. This made me sad so I tried to tell them my story and sometimes it changed their attitudes why they are there.
So, there my story I have made an impact on several of the students lives. This is a great feeling knowing that you can help change someone's life for the better.
This is why I enjoy tutoring. I live here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Hello, My name is Carla. I use to live Tonopah,Arizona and decided to tutor. I speak, fluent Cherokee, Comanche and Spanish.

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.
My Great Grandfather was a preacher. He built his own church. It was a very small country church where the word of the bible was taught with a sincere heart. I grew up with the knowing the word of God before I could read. In fact that is the book that my grandmother would read us stories from or tell us stories around the pot belly stove when it was cold.
I know about the scriptures and how people of that time came to know and trust in God our Savior. When it was hard times back then and they grew away from him. He always supplied someone to help them regain their spiritual trust and faith in Him. He was always there to love and forgive. This is what he represents LOVE, FAITH, HOPE, and CHARITY. With out any of this we would not know him.
Now, when it comes to cooking. My aunt and grandmother taught me how to cook country. I was learning to cook at the age of 5 standing on a chair in front of the stove with my grandmother. I first learned how to make grits which is made out of cornmeal along with cornbread. I also learned how to make all kinds of deserts from scratch and a little imagination. My grandmother would say without imagination you can do nothing, but with a little you can do a lot.
I learned from there that when i set my mind on cooking a fantasy to a native traditional dish the sky is the limit. With a little book knowledge and imagination I have learned how to make a lot of dishes that my friends have actually wanted to purchase. So, with interest and learning I have achieved my cooking abilities from my aunt and grandmother whom I love very much. In case you need a little help please contact me and I would be more than happy to help.
In the neighborhood where I use to live there would be kids that needed help and I would volunteer to help them with their reading, spanish, writing and english. This is because sometimes the mothers or fathers did not have the time or were too busy with other things.
I also helped tutor anyone that needed it from the student services as well. I believe that all kids needs some to care about them. So, this was my way of showning them that not all grownups was bad. I tried to show them that they could achieve anything that they sat their mind to. I helped them understand that sometimes it was hard but not to give up that things do get easier. So, anyone who would like to have a tutor that really cares from the heart please feel free to contact me.
My husband was from Mexico and spoke a dialect (native). I taught him how to read and do banking, reading. From there he would bring his friends or other people who could not speak english to our house and I began to teach english.
This is one of my passion to see how people can learn and want to learn. Sometimes it was hard because they thought it was freightened to speak not so perfect a language. I explained that people will see that they are trying and will understand. So, I continue to do this for over 7 years at my house. Please in case you need someone to help with your english contact me and we can do this together.
