My name is Anays Perez and I’ve been an educator for 10 years. Over the years I have seen countless students struggle with reading and writing. My two greatest passions. This is why I have spent my time as a teacher ensuring that I help my students learn how to think and respond critically about text while fostering a love for reading and writing. I have had the opportunity to work with students across various grade levels as well as adults. I spent about 7 years teaching 4th grade reading and writing, but I’m currently a third grade reading teacher. Tutoring has been something that I have done for the last couple of years as a way to assist more students. Whether it is reading readiness, foundational skills, test prep, or preparation for the citizenship examination, I have made myself available to the community. Now, my incredible business partner and colleague, Ms. lourdes Echazabal and I have decided that it’s time to turn our after-school tutoring into something that will allow us to reach more students. Instilling a love for learning is exactly the reason I went into education and now I get to make an even bigger impact in the lives of many others.
