About Tess

I am a very patient, dedicated, and qualified certified CT teacher. I have a Masters in Elementary Education from Southern Connecticut State University in which I m very excited to put to use as a tutor.
I have always loved working one on one and in small groups with elementary students and helping them to grow their academic skills. I have worked in a K-4 elementary school and did my student teaching in Branford and New Haven in 1st and 5th grade. I have a special affinity for mathematics and would love the opportunity to help your student love the subject too. I am very familiar with lesson planning and incorporating the Common Core. I look forward to working with your student soon!

I understand the foundations of reading and know how to help assess and teach struggling readers with skills such as metacognition, self-monitoring, re-telling and phonics.

I know the standard and have implemented them into all the lessons I have taught.

I have been successful in the classroom in teaching a variety of students the mathematics skills that they need. I do formative and summative assessment in order to target my instruction.

I know the foundations of reading and how to teach them.

Please contact me today to schedule a lesson. It will be the best decision for your child!
