About Venecia


Bio

I have taught in the school system and have tutored for the past 20 years. I have experienced first hand the frustration students have felt as they struggled with math. However, working in the school system I was limited in what I could do about this, so I decided that my talent was better served providing one-on-one tutoring. I tutor K-12 math and English.

I have taught in the school system and have tutored for the past 20 years. I have experienced first hand the frustration students have felt as they struggled with math. However, working in the school system I was limited in what I could do about this, so I decided that my talent was better served providing one-on-one tutoring. I tutor K-12 math and English.

Math is my absolute favorite subject to tutor. I love watching a student go from struggling with math to achieving high marks. Many children struggle with math from the very beginning. Math is a progressive study based on early fundamentals. Once a child learns one concept, the next concept builds upon the one he or she just learned. Every math concept builds upon the previous one, so if a child does not have a solid understanding of one particular concept, he or she will struggle with what follows after. For this reason math gets harder for these kids every school year.

To help these children, I go back to the basics to see where a student got lost. I help students grasp basic concepts of math that will apply to life skills such as paying bills, managing a budget, and other necessary math-related skills. I use my expertise in math to help them improve their grades significantly, conquer their fear of math and boost their confidence.

I have been told by many students I have tutored that I explain things differently than their teachers and they understand the material better. I strive to explain concepts in a way that students will understand and remember. I strive to help students have a better experience with math.

My love for math and my desire to help students who struggle with math gain a better understanding of math concepts have led me to develop and research ways to explain difficult ideas or complex topics. One of my favorite success stories is of a college student who had to take a prerequisite algebra course. She enlisted my help after failing the midterm five times. (If students failed the midterm, they were not allowed to take the final and had to take the class over again.) After three sessions, she passed the midterm with a 71, and after a few more sessions, she passed the final with an 86.

I taught math and English at the Allen School of Health Sciences, a training school for medical assistants, and I taught GED math and English reading and writing at LaGuardia Community College. I currently teach high school equivalency math for the TASC, the replacement test for the GED, at Lehman College.

I have tutored basic, elementary math and English for the past 16 years. I've done test prep in both subjects. In math, I teach students techniques in learning addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percents, algebra and geometry. I also teach converting units, plotting points on a graph, proportions, and other areas. In English, I teach the parts of speech, subject/predicate, subject-verb agreement, punctuation rules, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing skills.

I have tutored Algebra 1 for 16 years to individual students as well as groups. I've also worked as a high school teacher's assistant in the math department for 5 years. Algebra is my favorite topic to teach in math. My students have told me that my teaching style is very different from their teachers' and they understand it better the way I teach it. I always look for different ways to explain math to students because not all students learn the same way. I cater to their individual needs. I have helped students who were at the point of failing pass math as well as the Regents exam.

Great Work

As with the previous weeks she has done a wonderful job with my son and his math homework. Carter is now more confident with his math.

Kevin, 4 lessons with Venecia

Great Math Tutor

Venecia was very helpful to my 8th grader. She taught her a new, easier method than the way school was teaching and encouraged her to slow down to increase accuracy. We will be reaching out in the fall again for further assistance!

Michael, 2 lessons with Venecia

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

After one lesson my Son was gaining confidence. She took the time to explain and break down difficult concepts he was struggling with. I like that she uses the Barron’s review book with sample test questions.

Jayne, 10 lessons with Venecia

Excellent

Venecia, Was great and well prepared for the lesson ! Venice took time to explain the lesson and brought materials to teach me the lesson. Venezia was also very patient.

Carol, 6 lessons with Venecia

Very patient with my son

Venecia was terrific. She was very patient with our 9 yr old son and really helped him to focus, which is not easy! She took the time to sort out what he knows and what he needs to work on in math.

Kelly, 5 lessons with Venecia

Great tutor!

Venecia is a great tutor! Kept my son engaged and focused on algebra, which is not an easy task. With little expectation of passing the Regents on his first attempt prior to tutoring, my son was able to pass after just a few weeks of intense tutoring! Would recommend Venecia’s services highly!

Donna, 23 lessons with Venecia

Great Algebra I tutor

Venecia was very thorough and actually explained the slope and the linear equations to me. Her explanation made it understandable. She is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor.

Rhiannon, 1 lesson with Venecia

Knowledgeable

My son explained after the session that he learned a lot with her and will continue with the tutoring. She is also very professional and nice. I really appreciate her help.

Maria, 9 lessons with Venecia

Knowledgeable and very encouraging

Venecia is very patient and encouraging in her style of teaching, where you want to do more as it becomes easy. Before working with Venecia, I was struggling in Algebra and she explained it to me that made clear sense and I was able to do more on my own.
