Sonia attended Boston University as Psychology major and French literature Minor. She began tutoring French and Arabic to college students on campus. After moving to the Bay Area, Sonia received a degree in Early childhood Development and completed two years of Spanish. She currently works part time at both Las Positas College Community Ed and Quarry Lane School. A teacher and tutor for over eight years, Sonia has been creating lessons that engage all learners by applying a variety of teaching methods. In both her positions, she met with parents to keep them apprised of their child’s accomplishments and areas needing extra attention. Sonia is passionate about teaching and forge relationships with her students that help build a sense of confidence and competence. In her spare time, Sonia loves to Zumba and listens to Pandora. If she’s not exploring her town, she’ll be visiting new countries and learning about their cultures. She also likes to spend time with her family and dog Lola.
