About Tess

I have taught English and Theater at the middle school and high school levels and currently teach English Language Arts to grades 6, 7, and 8 at North Shore Christian School, where my classes include American Literature, Ancient Greek and Roman Literature, World Literature, Art and Music History, and Shakespeare.

I hold teaching licenses for English and Theater in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. I have a Master’s degree in Education and graduated from New York University’s undergraduate Theater Program. My teaching experience includes writing curriculum for classes in composition, literary analysis, essay writing, expository and persuasive writing, and research skills. I have also created units and curriculum for British and American literature, poetry, short stories, and all levels of theater history and practice. My lessons include the teaching of grammar principles, vocabulary, MLA formatting, and preparation for testing.

I have tutored students on a one-to-one basis in grammar, writing, vocabulary, and literary comprehension skills. I have worked with middle school students and all levels of high school learners including AP honors, college preparatory, and lower level classes. I am able to tailor my tutorials to meet the specific needs of each student and help each one succeed in reaching his or her academic potential.

I am happy to meet with you to discuss your objectives and discover ways to engage your child in a positive learning experience that will enhance their academic performance in the classroom.

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.

English

I am an English Language Arts Teacher/Theater Director, where I wrote new curriculum for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English Language Arts. I also created lesson plans for units in American Literature, Shakespeare, epic poetry, and
classic texts from world literature.

Public Speaking

I obtained a Bachelor's degree in theater from New York University's Tisch School of Drama and worked as a professional actress before becoming a teacher. I have taught public speaking, debate, and theater classes for all ages including children and adults. I continue to direct student productions and teach a Shakespeare Workshop for middle school students.
