Information about Veronica
I am a South African born and trained high school Maths teacher who has lived, taught and tutored in the UK for the last 12 years. While raising two children I moved from full-time to part-time teaching and also increased my tutoring business. My husband and I have recently moved out of the London area to south Somerset, so I will be resuming my private tuition in my new local area. Additionally, in line with the recent situation where normal tuition is not possible, I will be commencing online tuition.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I attended university and did my teacher training in South Afrca where I taught full-time for more than ten years, and part-time for many more. Most of this experience was gained in Cape Town, where I lived until 2007. I have tutored Maths ever since my last year of school and have a passion for explaining and helping others understand Maths. Since living in the UK, I have undertaken various short courses and have kept up to speed with curriculum developments and changes that have taken place within the various exam boards.
I have worked as a supply teacher, cover teacher and tutor in the UK.
Feedback For Veronica (7)
Veronica has only worked with our son for a few sessions but her positive teaching style and strong encouragement is already making a difference. Noah looks forward to his lessons!
Veronica tutored my daughter on a weekly basis throughout Year 11. She was always very clear in her explanations, patient, friendly and approachable. Thanks to Veronica, my daughter`s confidence and capability grew enormously throughout the year. Although not a natural mathematician, my daughter really enjoyed her sessions with Veronica and today we found out she achieved a level 6 in her GCSE which we are absolutely delighted about.
Veronica is proving to be a really great tutor for my daughter. Confidence levels and grades are up already and we could not be happier (or more relieved) with this positive change after so few sessions.
Veronica came for one starter lesson and was excellent in the way she led the lesson. Engaging and clear she was very helpful. We didn`t continue as the dates that we require didn`t match to her availability. Would recommend.
Veronica is an excellent Maths tutor. She knows her subject thoroughly and conveys topics patiently and enthusiastically. She works at the students pace and is flexible with the way they learn.
Veronica has been an excellent tutor for my daughter. She`s helped to build her confidence and encourage her love of the subject. My daughter looks forward to her sessions.
Veronica taught Emma Maths. She has a way of explaining that doesn`t make the student feel stupid. She is so calm and so friendly without being too lenient and Emma really understood maths for the first time. Her grade went up from c to B-. But most importantly, Emma enjoyed the tutoring very much. Veronica always tried to accommodate Emma ahead of exams with extra teaching and was very reliable.
She is a very nice person and a very good tutor.
