About Tessa

I am a sophomore studying Non Governmental Organizations and Social Change at the University of Southern California. I graduated from Glenbrook South High School in Glenview, IL in June 2015. I now reside in Los Angeles.

I am very passionate about teaching and learning. When in high school, I tutored other high school students in all subjects: English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Spanish, and ACT preparation, however; my strongest subject is English. I also tutored my neighbor's children in middle school and elementary school level classes in varied subjects. I can also tutor in specialized areas such as dance or voice, as I have trained in ballet, jazz, and contemporary for the past 9 years and I have been training in voice for 4.

I love tutoring because I love helping others, and I think that readily attaining knowledge is the strongest attribute a person can have because no one can take an education away from you! I love helping students understand new concepts. I love to share my passion for learning with each of my students.

Algebra 1 is such an important subject because it is the basis of math. I have tutored many students in Algebra 1 before, and I have successfully completed all Algebra courses, so I have the skill sets to successfully tutor students in this subject area.

I scored within the 96th quartile on the science section of the ACT. I love science and I am proficient at working through questions with students. I have an ACT book with practice science questions, so I can provide this when meeting with students.

English is my strongest subject. In high school I took two AP English courses- AP Literature and AP Language, and I received a score of 4 on both of my AP tests for these classes. I love reading and writing and I love editing papers. On the English section of the ACT I scored within the 99th quartile. I can also provide practice ACT English questions/tests when meeting with students.

Please contact me if you would like more information.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Hebrew

I studied Hebrew for 8 years at a private Jewish day school. I know Torah and Haftorah trope, all of the blessings of the Torah, and all of the prayers during a service that a bar/bat mitzvah may lead (for the Friday night and Saturday morning service). I can also help bar/bats write speeches, as I have extensive knowledge of the Torah and of the many parashas that a bar/bat will need to incorporate into his/her speech.
