I'm Tessa. I have a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D., in Applied Mathematics and have over twenty years of experience teaching at University and High School levels.  I have taught a wide range of mathematics, from ninth-grade Geometry to advanced courses in Partial Differential Equations.  This unique perspective and experience give me insight into the developmental learning process and how it will be applied by students to become more sophisticated critical thinkers and self educators. I'm exceptionally fluent at tutoring the following subjects: Algebra (all levels), Trigonometry, Geometry, Precalculus, Business Calculus, Calculus (all flavors, including AP AB/BC, and college levels I, II, & III), Intro to Statistics, Probability and Statistics, AP Statistics, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, and Numerical Analysis. Don't let the long list get to you. I've been doing this for a long time.

I started tutoring other students when I was a mathematics major in college. Right around the time I took Calculus III, the school hired me to be a math tutor for a few hours a week. I've either tutored or taught math in a classroom ever since. I've taught all of the subjects listed in the classroom at least once, and tutored them all, as well. I'm patient, good at explaining mathematics in plain language while at the same time building mathematics vocabulary, helping students see things in new ways, building upon the innate number sense that we all have.

I know that being good at math takes practice, like a muscle you need to flex. I promote a positive mathematics mindset, help students build symbolic fluency, focus on conceptual understanding and the meaning of notation rather than the manipulation of it, and help students reduce test anxiety. I can even help with personalized interdisciplinary projects. I'm good at explaining concepts in simple terms while building mathematical vocabulary. I'm thorough, detail-oriented, don't rush students, and above all, I'm patient.

Patient, Knowledgeable, and Makes sense!

Tessa helped me with calculus and was so helpful, she put things in much simpler terms and helped me remember the basics. Tessa did such a good job at understanding how I learn and teaching me in ways I would understand. She made calculus seem so much simpler and I will Defidently be using her again. She was also very patient and answered all my questions and explained them and didn’t make me feel bad or anything. I recommend Tessa because she teaches in terms a student can understand and is very patient! Thank you Tessa!
