Jonathan Berenguer grew up in the Bronx, NY on the Grand Concourse. Early on in life he experienced tragedy having lost both parents. He was raised by his maternal grandparents along with an older sister. A fifth grade teacher left a true impact in his life by teaching the “whole child” in him by encouraging him to speak up and even teaching him to play sports. He was always shy and reserved till an opportunity arose in eighth grade where he rose up to the plate to help his fellow classmates with a new math topic. It was in that class and in that moment that Jonathan knew he wanted to inspire others as an educator.

Throughout high school, Jonathan made it clear that he had goals to inspire and educate young minds. In his freshman year he began volunteering at his former middle school’s after school program. He also kept busy volunteering as a youth counselor for a community based program called R.E.A.C.H.  Aside from his growth in educating young minds, he was also being trained as a leader as part of the Army JROTC program in which he graduated with the rank of Captain and Company Commander. He also excelled in math and science graduating with honors in both.

Jonathan entered college with a full scholarship for teaching at Lehman College. He was 17 when he entered college and began interning as an in class tutor in a high school in the Bronx. During his sophomore year in college he founded his company By Your Side Tutoring, alongside his cousin and fellow aspiring educator, Jessica Bouret. During his time in college he was active as a club president and participant of the college leadership program and gained a certificate in Social Change Leadership. He graduated with a Bachelors degree in Environmental Science with a focus on Education.

Today, with 10+ years of experience educating young minds, Jonathan has grown By Your Side Tutoring into a company that has served and inspired 100's of students in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. He has trained and hired over 100 high school seniors and college students. He has worked in 5 NYC public schools working with grades k-12 over the past 10 years. He is an experienced motivational speaker having spoken to secondary and post-secondary student groups in NYC, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, and Georgia. He has also traveled to Uganda, Africa and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to provide food, clothes, toys, and hope to children. By Your Side Tutoring predominantly serves elementary school aged students within the Hispanic and African American communities in the Bronx. The company has given back to the community by presenting educational workshops in shelters and hospitals and has donated backpacks, t-shirts, school supplies, books, tablets, and more to community programs for children. In addition to his role as President over By Your Side Tutoring, he also co-directs a middle school mentoring program for the R.E.A.C.H. Program and is a Counselor in a Bronx High School.

Jonathan has found his purpose and calling in life; to educate and inspire. He named his company By Your Side Tutoring to express his deep passion to bridge the gap between school and home and to show parents, students, and educators, that they are not alone. The company’s motto is: We Guarantee To Be By Your Side. By Your Side Tutoring tutors, don’t just tutor, they INSPIRE.

“If you have vision and drive, together we’ll go far.” Jonathan Berenguer
