About Veronica

I am a rising senior at Syracuse University majoring in Inclusive Elementary and Special Education. I have been an active tutor since my high school days and have completed around 300 hours of field placements, which are equivalent to student teaching. My pedagogy is to find and strengthen students' strengths to supplement their weaknesses - every child has a background full of knowledge and it is the educator's job to use that knowledge to help in understanding more. I believe that education should be a fun and unique experience to all students and hope to help them recognize and enjoy even the hardest subjects. I have been recognized in the past for raising students' reading levels and math skills and I strive to continue this.

I have been given the opportunity to teach second grade mathematics using the Common Core standards during the fall semester of 2015 and have experience tutoring small groups and individuals in math from the elementary levels all to eighth grade. I have also received A's in my elementary Math methods courses. These courses taught me elementary math and how it should be taught.

I have tutored first graders in reading and have raised their reading levels from levels b all the way up to level E during my first field placement in College. I have also taken many courses that taught me how to enhance a child's reading level and experience. All of my experiences use the Common Core standards and so am very well acquainted with what your child needs to know. I have also been a tutor for reading during my high school years.

I have and am currently using the Common Core Standards when teaching during my field placements and am exclusively learning about the Common Core in my Education courses.

My three years at Syracuse University has allowed me to learn about supplementing every single child's needs in a classroom of 20 to 25 children. I ensure that I will bring about the best of my abilities and learnings to enhance you, your child, and learning. I am also available to drive distances and will be flexible with timing if necessary in order to provide my services so please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.

Common Core

There is a core focus on understanding and learning to teach according to the Common Core State Standards at Syracuse University. Thus, I have been learning and abiding by those standards during my field experiences throughout college (since 2013). I have written and taught many lesson plans that are specific to the Common Core as well as lessons that incorporate those standards as well.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am majoring in and have received credit for over 300 hours in field experience for Inclusive Elementary and Special Education. I have also tutored elementary school students in Math and ELA as well as co-teach science and social studies education since high school and during my field practicums. I am also in the process of receiving my NY State Teacher's Certification for Elementary Ed. and Special Ed. When tutoring, I encourage my students to find methods of problem solving that they are comfortable and confident with. I have learned that this boosts the students' overall confidence and helps them to stay motivated when learning.
