About Veronica

Dear students and parents,
I am interested in privately tutoring elementary students. I have a strong background in education, and have spent time working within all elementary grades.
I earned my master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Maryland College Park’s CITE Program. The CITE Program is a highly competitive and selective teacher training program. During the two year program, I worked directly with a teacher in her fifth grade classroom. This allowed me to immediately apply the techniques I was learning to the classroom. It also allowed me to collaborate with other teachers and understand the team atmosphere found within a school. Working within the elementary school for two years also allowed me to traverse the different grades and work with all ages of children.
After graduating, I spent a year working as a second grade teacher at Dr. Charles Drew ES. I enjoyed working with my students and took pride in their accomplishments. I also grew as a teacher during that time. I spent time with the school’s reading specialist to continue improving my guided reading lessons. I also came up with a positive behavior management system which really motivated students.
I am very comfortable using technology to improve my lessons. I have used my technology skills to implement lessons which appealed to the different learning types in my classroom. I did this by creating interactive flipcharts for the Promethean Board, as well as using internet resources such as Discovery Education and Youtube to build video components into my lessons. I also used Excel sheets to record and analyze student data. The spreadsheets allowed me to easily track and assess student progress to ensure effective teaching.
Since then, I have spent time growing as person. I have gained independence and maturity by moving across the country. I believe these qualities will make me an even stronger teacher.
I am enthusiastic, have a solid work ethic and am quick to build rapport with students and parents. My previous career in the broadcast industry has greatly prepared me for the flexibility and multi-tasking that is essential in teaching. My creativity, which was cultured during my years at a liberal arts college, also enhances my classroom by enabling me to create engaging and imaginative lessons.
I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to review my profile.
Sincerely,

Veronica M.

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.
