About Tess


Bio

My name is Tess and I am a freshman at UCLA. I am a neuroscience major and I love all things math and science. My strongest subjects are biology and precalculus but I have also taken several classes in calculus, chemistry, and physics and feel confident tutoring all of these. I am also currently enrolled in both Biology and Chemistry which will refresh my skills in these subjects in particular.

My name is Tess and I am a freshman at UCLA. I am a neuroscience major and I love all things math and science. My strongest subjects are biology and precalculus but I have also taken several classes in calculus, chemistry, and physics and feel confident tutoring all of these. I am also currently enrolled in both Biology and Chemistry which will refresh my skills in these subjects in particular. In high school, I was a private tutor for two introductory algebra students and greatly enjoyed the experience. 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!

Amazing!!!

My son, who's a junior in high school, has had 1 pre-calculus session with Tess, and he loved it. Not only did she help him better understand the current lesson, but she was also extremely patient and very clear in explaining different ways to problem solve. My son had a quiz the day after his first session and he was so confident because of Tess' instruction, a huge change after seeing him struggle the first few weeks of school. Thank you so much Tess!!!
