Tutor Personal Information

Name: Venecia C.
Gender: Female   Age: 31-40
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have taught in the school system for 10 years and have tutored for the past 12 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.

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 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.

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.

I currently teach math and English at the Allen School, a training school for medical professionals and I teach GED math and English reading and writing at LaGuardia Community College.
