About Veronica

I have always loved career counseling for high school students as well as adults because I like helping them see the possibilities and making connections between their own skills and new skills and the potential for transferring those to the future.

I'm very good at helping people identify what else needs to be done so that they can reach their goals. I work hard for my students so I become be very informed not only on one path but other possible options, so that the students can make informed decisions.

I have a Masters degree in social work and over 15 years experience in two colleges, working with traditional age and nontraditional college students. I'm a member of professional organizations that help me maintain my skills and provide resources for students. In addition I have been self-employed as a career counselor for over 20 years.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Career Development

I have over 15 years experience as half time faculty for a state university where part of my responsibilities include advising students on degree programs and careers. Since 2008 I have also been an advisor to non-degree students. In both jobs, the majority of my students have been career changers or working people who seek job advancement through additional education. I have a Master's degree in Social Work and I believe it is important to serve as well as teach. Therefore I am a member of the National Career Development Association and have a private practice providing career counseling to adult learners.

College Counseling

I have a master's degree in social work and have been an academic advisor for over 15 years. I advise traditional age college students on selecting a college as well as course registration, degree programs and careers. In addition I advise non-traditional students who are changing careers or deciding on graduate or undergraduate degrees or prerequisite courses, or who are trying to balance work and life and college.
