Hi! I'm Veena and I recently graduated from the University of Miami with a B.S. in Microbiology and Immunology with Chemistry and English Literature as my minors. I've tutored at a Math and Reading learning center in high school and became an employee of the Academic Resource Center at UM where I tutored my peers in STEM subjects. I was an assistant science teacher at a middle school for a year, and a workshop leader for chemistry classes at UM.
I love tutoring because it keeps me on my feet. I know that not every student is the same and I know how to vary my style of teaching to fit the student. My priority is to eventually get the student to understand concepts independently. I consider my strongest asset to be my ability to make the process of learning relaxed and enjoyable. Having been a student very recently, I can relate to the stress students feel when they don't understand the material. My goal in each tutoring session is to put that stress aside and to take baby steps toward fully understanding a concept. My favorite subject to tutor is chemistry because of its interconnectedness. It builds on itself and when you start to piece everything together, everything just clicks.
I'm currently working in a clinical research lab and applying to medical schools, and through my clinical experiences I've come to love working with people, which is why tutoring has been such a joy. In my spare time I like to try new recipes, dance, watch every movie I can, and train for marathons.
