A monotone cell-centered finite volume scheme for diffusion equations on tetrahedral meshes is established in this paper, which deals with tensor diffusion coefficients and strong discontinuous diffusion coefficients. The first novelty here is to propose a new method of interpolating vertex unknowns (auxiliary unknowns) with cell-centered unknowns (primary unknowns), in which a sufficient condition is given to guarantee the non-negativity of vertex unknowns. The second novelty of this paper is to devise a modified Anderson acceleration, which is based on an iterative combination of vertex unknowns and will be denoted as AA-Vertex algorithm, in order to solve the nonlinear scheme efficiently. Numerical testes indicate that our new method can obtain almost second order accuracy and is more accurate than some existing methods. Furthermore, with the same accuracy, the modified Anderson acceleration is much more efficient than the usual one.
