Hello and Welcome!
My name is Jacob Centeno and I am a very passionate mentor and teacher. I am 28 years old and have been working with children ages 5-20 for over 10 years!
It all started my first year of college at the University of California Santa Cruz when I was offered the job to be a Teacher's Writing Assistant for my English Professor. That same summer I taught 5th and 6th graders through an awesome Ivy-League non-profit organization called San Diego Summer Bridge. Over the years, I have continued to teach in various capacities and have dedicated my time and energy to helping non-profit organizations centered around child development.
I am currently pursuing my Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing with an emphasis on Fiction Novels and am looking forward to finishing my first novel this coming May!
I look forward to learning with you and hope to meet you soon!
