About Vesna

I began my tutoring career as a college student. At the beginning it was only my part time job. However, the more I taught the more I enjoyed since the success of my students made me very happy. It was such a fulfillment seeing students reaching their goals with my help. During my graduate school I continued to tutor college students with the same enthusiasm and passion. Now I have time again to go back to my passion - tutoring.

I always preferred to teach one student at the time because they are typically highly motivated to learn and advance knowledge what is not the case with the large classes at schools or colleges. When I worked as an instructor at the University in every course I taught I always had at least one student who was truly committed to learn as much as possible. And as the result of their effort, they were the best students in my class. They typically wanted more information, asked challenging questions, and always participated in the class discussions. Even though all the other students in the class also studied and learned, they only went beyond the required curriculum some time to time. I realized from my experience that the similar situation is with tutoring. Children who ask for a tutor want to learn more and advance fast. That is why teaching them is a big reward for me.

Math and science are fun for me. That is why I am able to introduce these two subjects to my students from a totally different prospective. This means that every problem is not a problem and it always has a simple solution. Using a simple explanation for a complex topic I make the hardest lesson understandable and easy. I enforce constant practice and repetition in studying so that kids can get complete understanding of a subject and memorize important details which are necessary to build up the knowledge. With my systematic approach and guidance they get self confidence necessary for independent thinking and work. After few lessons my students cannot wait to get more challenging problems to solve. Every new lesson eventually becomes as interesting as a new episode of their favorite TV show with the difference that in this show they are the main performers.

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.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry was one of the core subjects in my undergraduate and graduate studies. In addition, my work experience includes many aspects of practical applications of organic chemistry. As a scientist doing research in different areas I do synthesis of organic compounds, the reaction kinetics, and quantitative and qualitative analyses of the synthesized compounds. This work requires fundamental knowledge and understanding of organic chemistry.

Great tutor — My daughter felt so much more confident after her session with Vesna. Vesna is patient and well versed in organic chem.
