About Veneta

Even as an elementary school student, my family believed I would be a good teacher; because I playfully taught my nephews when they were small boys. As I grew older, I was always helping my friends and co-students understand what the teachers taught in class. After I received my bachelor degree and acquired years of teaching experience, I decided to obtain a masters degree in Secondary Education. I also obtained a teacher's license to teach chemistry and biology. As a teacher, I was honored and selected as one of the "most influential teachers" and "Who's Who Among America's Teachers." I have taught students for over 17 years.

Today, I tutor elementary math and science, prealgebra, algebra 1, nutrition, and chemistry. I am dedicated to student success; I have helped my students by breaking down difficult concepts into pieces that make the concepts easier to comprehend. I give examples, practice materials, explanations, and review until mastery is achieved. I get extreme joy when my students succeed and accomplish their academic goals

Tutoring can be done by appointment at your home or a public place such as a library. Hope to hear from you soon.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have the educational background to teach Algebra 1; however, I just completed an online course in high school Algebra that helped refresh my memory of important concepts. I will probably continue to take a college online Algebra course as well.

Veneta had a lot of patience with my 13 year old son. She helped him to achieve 100% on a make up test.
