About Vernice

¬°Bienvenidos! My love for helping students achieve higher grades and understand the Spanish language continues to grow as the years go by teaching in a public school. The classroom environment is difficult for many students, regardless of student ability. Curriculum pacing is fast, and the large amount of information learned does not allow many students to have full understanding of the topic. This classroom approach leaves many students needing extra help for deeper understanding.

My goal is to assist students to achieve success in the foreign language classroom and use test taking techniques that assist with stress. My tutoring approach will depend on the student's need and their learning style. I use scaffolding techniques beginning with easier material gradually moving to a more difficult level to help the student gain confidence of the material. I use visuals, practice sheets, and test the student during the tutoring session with questions to ensure understanding of the material.

I currently completed my 6th year of teaching in the public school system. As a summa cum laude graduate, past dean's list student, and board member of the honor society, I understand the amount of time and work it takes to achieve in the conventional classroom. I believe in every student being able to succeed, and hope to transmit that to your student. I am currently enrolled in a master's degree for Spanish Education to expand my knowledge and better assist the students.

I have taught mainly Spanish level 2 and have had Spanish 1 to 4 added to my experience. I am able to tutor Spanish levels 1-5. I have had many hours of free tutoring helping my own students and my colleagues' students.

I am available by appointment, and I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy with one accident at no charge :). I will travel to the home of the student. I look forward to hearing from you to help you achieve success!
