About Veronica

English Composition and Math Foundations Tutor
(middle school through adult students)

I am an MBA student, and member of Pi Sigma Alpha National Political Science Honor Society. I achieved honors in my major through continuously writing persuasive position papers and other critical thinking essays. I enjoy tutoring the academic areas: English Composition and Math Foundations (Pre-Algebra).

From 2007-2010, I worked as a certified substitute teacher in the Arizona Public School System where I taught middle school. As a private tutor, I worked with high school students over the course of 2 years.

English composition can often frustrate students because the process of getting written words to fully express thoughts and ideas is not easy. My approach to improving students' writing skills is to work with them to build vocabulary, sentence structure, paragraphing skills and then focus on grammar.

My approach to tutoring math foundations is that there is no such thing as "I can't do math," or "I'll never be good enough in math." There is only a solid foundation that needs to be
re-learned, and information on problem solving methods that the student has not been exposed to yet. Once the student acquires the right information on "how to solve problems," he or she will be very good at math.

One of my most rewarding experiences in tutoring is that I worked with an at-risk high school junior on math foundations. She was discouraged because she had twice failed the state comprehensive math exam required for graduation. She hung in the whole semester and worked on exercises I provided. One day at the end of the semester, the tutoring service owner called me and said that the student passed her math comprehensive exam with a score almost reaching the next performance rung above her norm.
