About Veronica

Dear Brilliant Families and Students,

When we are working so hard at learning something and the learning doesn't seem to happen, it can be frustrating and often times discouraging. We are doing everything we have been taught and everything we know to do to become better, but we still don't get it. That's when a tutor like myself will help. Inside of us are all the tools we need to be successful. I can help you see academics in a new way, think in a new way so learning and understanding happens.

The process of tutoring is a partnership. We don't just do the work, we discover the importance of our role in learning the work. The big picture of it all is to master skills that help us master the world, by creating our rhythm of inquiry, application and understanding. We are not competing with the world, but honoring our contribution to it. For example, math is everywhere, what do we do that involves math? Bringing our interests into our learning makes what we are learning in school important and practical, then it stays with us.

As a teacher in the New York City Public Schools, I have taught to many learning styles, using drama, music, movement and repetitive drills to enable learning. I incorporate brain exercises to balance the right and left hemisphere of the brain, meditation to improve focus and visualizing for academic goal achievement. My skills in balanced approaches to learning target otherwise unlocked abilities. Sometimes the best approach is to sit at a desk and read the material given and sometimes it's not. I can assist you in discovering what works best for you and give you test taking tips for those times when it's about concentrating in your seat.

My training includes programs such as Wilson Reading Program, Sing, Spell, Read and Write, Lindon, Mood Bell for reading and math. I hold a Master's of Childhood Education and a Master's of School Counseling. I have 10 years experience as a classroom teacher. My experience working with whole group, small group and one on one has made me keenly aware of how to modify instruction to meet students' needs.

I genuinely care about your success, I believe in you and I am here to support your academic dreams!
Let's discover together all that you can do!

Sincerely,
Veronica

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor elementary grades K-6 because I completed my master's degree in childhood education, with focused course work on the elementary grades. My experience includes 10 years as a New York City public school teacher in grades k-6. I have a New York State and a California State teaching certification for the elementary grades.

Study Skills

As a teacher for 10 years, part of many roles was to provide students with the necessary study skills to master the material being taught. For example, when reading a textbook, notice important highlighted words including titles and subtitles and content specific vocabulary. I also taught students how to read charts and use other parts of their textbook like the glossary for greater understanding of the topic. Students were taught how to take notes, listening skills and questioning skills. Students were also taught to reflect on their learning and use their own words and cite real world examples about the topic to demonstrate understanding.
