I have a very strong background in math and science and tutor algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry and biology. I also offer test prep services for the math section of the SAT and math and science sections of the ACT. I have two year of experience tutoring students of all ages in all of these subjects.

My name is Tess and I am entering my second year at UCLA. I am a neuroscience major and I love all things math and science. I have a very strong background in math and science and tutor algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry and biology. I also offer test prep services for the math section of the SAT and math and science sections of the ACT. I have two year of experience tutoring students of all ages in all of these subjects. My favorite part of tutoring is helping students push past the frustration and confusion often associated with math and science to become more academically strong and confident.

In addition to my experience with tutoring, I have also worked with kids aged 7-14 in a nonacademic setting as a lacrosse coach for over 4 years. I began coaching when I was 13 and continued until I graduated high school. I love working with elementary and middle school aged kids in particular but am comfortable with high school students as well. I strongly believe that many of the techniques and skills and I developed to coach lacrosse will also be applicable in my tutoring practice.

I feel that I am an outstanding math tutor because I believe in starting with reviewing basic skills and working up to more complicated ones. My approach to problem solving is always consult the fundamentals first, and then to apply that knowledge to the task at hand. I am also an extremely patient and kind tutor and I understand that when students become frustrated with a problem, the tendency is often to give up or convince oneself they can't solve the problem. I am committed to breaking down tasks into small and manageable parts and identifying essential bits of knowledge.

Please feel free to reach out to me and ask any questions about my background and skill set that you may have. If you are interested in my services please contact me so that I can work with you to schedule a tutoring session that is convenient for both of us!

Awesome and engaged Tutor!

Tess is a great tutor. She tutors my daughter who is a junior and taking pre-calculus. She explains things very well and is very patient, even when my daughter doesn't understand the first time that Tess explains it, then Tess explains it a different way. She also asks very good questions. She knows her subject matter and is really good at teaching it. I highly recommend her! I am so happy we found her!
