About Vera


Bio

I have over 10 years experience teaching ELA, Writing, and Math. I attribute the bulk of my teaching experience to Ascension Parish School District and EBR School District. Being a teacher has sharpened my sternness, creativity, and expertise. However, there is nothing more rewarding than tutoring because the setting is small and lessons can be structured to fit each individual child perfectly.

I have over 10 years experience teaching ELA, Writing, and Math. I attribute the bulk of my teaching experience to Ascension Parish School District and EBR School District. Being a teacher has sharpened my sternness, creativity, and expertise. However, there is nothing more rewarding than tutoring because the setting is small and lessons can be structured to fit each individual child perfectly.

One of my tutoring students came to me failing all but one of her core subjects. By the end of the same school year, she had grown to a strong B student. By the following year, she was maintaining a B-average on her own with very little assistance needed from me. Recently, she told me that she is going to shoot for straight A's now. That's what tutoring is all about--to educate, motivate, and to move students toward independence. As your WyzAnt tutor, I can help you too.

I've taught in middle school and high school. My tutoring experience is in elementary school (all subjects) and middle school (ELA). I incorporate diagnostic assessments, common core strategies, hands-on learning, peer feedback, and online learning within any given tutoring session.

Secondary English Certified Teacher grades 6-12, 10+ years experience, BA in English, strong inclination towards Grammar, Proofreading, Writing, Poetry, and Vocabulary. I am also highly effective in Common Core ELA K-12, Common Core Math 2-6, LEAP Test Prep, and ACT Prep, Feel free to contact me.

I try to be flexible with time, but I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. To ensure convenience, safety, and a comfortable study space I tutor at Bluebonnet Library, my personal residence, and newly online. Some in-home sessions are considered periodically. I can provide private and small group tutoring sessions.
