About Veronica

My love for reading and learning led me to complete my Masters of Education with a specialization in remedial reading and literature, and I love Dr. Seuss! My favorite quote: The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

This is so true, reading can truly take you places, and to foster a love of reading in a child, to introduce children to a life-long love of reading is what I strive for in my work.

I received my Masters in Elementary Education, K-6 from the University of Bridgeport, CT. I completed a 2 year Reading and Literacy internship from the University of Saint Joseph, West Hartford, CT. I also completed a 2 year internship with a concentration in reading/literacy, working with students at-risk with reading comprehension and fluency. Children practiced handwriting using the Fundations method of phonics/handwriting.

I have worked as a tutor for students transitioning into middle school, high school and college. Tutoring consisted of teaching study skills, organization skills, time management, and reading and math. And while working in a literacy program, I learned to focus on using systematic and explicit phonics instruction and using research based instruction. I look forward to meeting new students.
