Hello potential students and parents!
My name is Teresa and I come to you with over five years of tutoring experience. While an undergraduate at Rice University, I worked as a tutor for students ages 9 to 17 both independently and for Varsity Tutors. I have tutored everything from elementary reading and spelling to SAT Math, study skills, and paper writing. Since graduation, I have been trained by KAPLAN as an SAT prep teacher, and I believe that every student has the potential to get into the school of their dreams. I am currently a graduate student at the University of Maryland, teaching undergraduates "The Art of Communication & Presentation."
My range of experience is vast, and my attitude is always positive.
I am available to tutor students in the following subjects:
English (ages 9-99+)
-SAT Reading, Writing
-Elementary & Middle School
-Algebra 1 & 2
-Essay & Paper writing/editing
In addition to my standard one on one tutoring ($50/hour), I am happy to offer two week intensive SAT prep courses for the SAT. These courses meet 3 times weekly, for 2 hour sessions in small groups of 2-5 students (depending on enrollment and scheduling). Concentrated work and collaboration sessions are supplemented with intensive homework assignments. Because of the nature of this course of study, enrollment is $40/hour. If you are interested in one-on-one sessions following this intensive curriculum please contact me for pricing details. I am also happy to send out a syllabus if requested.

As an undergraduate at Rice University I majored in Anthropology focusing on cultural anthropology and archaeology. My Capstone Project examined the use of food in feminist video art as a means of exploring gender roles. While at Rice, I also had the opportunity to do cultural anthropological field work in Blue Creek Village, a Mayan village in the heart of Belize, once again studying food and gender roles. As a tutor, I work with my students to examine anthropological theory and its application to the material studied. As a tutor, I utilize a variety of resources in order to communicate these ideas to my students, including articles, internet resources, video, and images.
When it comes to SAT math, I know that it is important that each student learns an approach that will suit his or her learning style. I work with my students to ensure that they understand the math behind the test and go in confidently on test day with a set of techniques that will help them conquer any section of the SAT!
Amazing and Very Thorough Tutor — My husband and I are very impressed with Teresa and her outstanding ability to provide my son guidance with Algebra. Since she started working with our son, he seems to be more confident about his knowledge of the subject matter. Our son is enthusiastic about math and his ability to participate more in class. He looks forward to the tutoring sessions, because it gives him a chance to show his p ...
