About Tess

Having lived and worked overseas, I understand the challenges of learning another language and navigating through a new culture. I know how important it is to be able to clearly express yourself in a second or third language. I have over 20 years of experience working creatively with international students at the professional, university, community college, high school, middle school and elementary school level.

Together we will design a course of action that will take your skills to the next level.

Focus: English (speaking, communication skills, writing, job skills, resumes, interviewing), Linguistics, US History and Government.

Certified K-12 in ESOL and Social Studies.
Adjunct Professor at Montgomery College and Trinity University

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified to teach ESOL/ESL in grades K-12. I taught elementary students in Japan and in Montgomery County Public Schools. I like teaching critical thinking skills and creative use of language at this level.

Handwriting

I have over 20 years experience working for Montgomery County Public Schools. Handwriting is one of the most important skills I teach students. Being able to express yourself clearly In writing is a critical skill.

Social Studies

I am certified to teach Social Studies K-12 in Montgomery County Public Schools. I have taught US History, Modern World History and National, State and Local Government in MCPS high schools. I have also tutored/prepped students to take the Government HSA (High School Assessment).

I have been teaching in the Montgomery County Public Schools for 20 years. This is a skill I teach to every student. Some students require very basic study skills while others need more creative or advanced techniques.
