About Vera

My experience with teaching goes back to Brazil, where my mother was a teacher. I would watch her tutor students at home after her teaching job at school. I graduated as an ESL teacher in Brazil and taught children and adults there before moving to the US in 1984. Living in Florida since then, I went back to school and received a Master's degree in Guidance and Counseling. While going to school in the evenings, I worked in the school system as a tutor/aide, then later on as a teacher, then a guidance counselor.
I love working with children and adults who have a desire to further their education and have a love of learning. My first language is Portuguese, and I understand Spanish very well. I would like to have an opportunity to work with students who are eager to learn and have a plan for their future.
Sincerely,
Vera

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.

I thought Elementary School English as a Second Language and tutored Math students in the classroom for 3 years. My certification is PreK-9 in guidance and counseling.

I am a certified teacher in English, Reading, and Counseling. I have worked with Elementary, Middle School, and High School students throughout my teaching career.

Study Skills

I have taught for over 28 years and my experience includes Elementary, Middle, and High School levels, as well as adults. My educational background goes back to Brazil, where I first became certified to teach ESL. I also taught Special Education students and Study Skills was one of the main focus for them to be successful in the academic environment. After teaching for many years, I earned a Masters Degree in Guidance and Counseling. When conferencing with students, I always asked them about their study habits and gave them tips on how to improve their Study Skills.
