Good fit for my junior calculus student
Tessa was a great fit for my calculus student. We went through a couple tutors before we found her, but found her to be an expert in the subject and good at explaining difficult problems. Looking forward to preparing for the ap test with her.

Exceptional Tutor
Tessa is an excellent tutor. She is extremely patient and clear. She helped my daughter a great deal with AP statistics and was able to accommodate a last minute tutoring session.

Tutoring that relieves pressure and builds confidence
Tessa provided the big picture and a road map for preparing for the two big exams facing my daughter. She then provided tutoring on specific concepts and practice problems, in practical terms while leveraging humor.

Excellent teacher
Tessa is a kind and patient tutor. She’s incredibly thorough, and always makes sure that I grasp concepts fully before moving on with the material. She has been an AP Calculus lifesaver. I highly recommend working with Tessa.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
In addition to being patient and kind, she was able to explain things very well. She broke things down to make them understandable and she checked to make sure the concepts were understood.

We went over lesson 9.3 for an upcoming test and I felt very confident at the end. We went over notes and practice problems so I was able to understand the concepts clearly. We also went over some calculator functions.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor/teacher!
This was my last session with Tessa before the class final and I couldn’t have passed the class without her! My various sessions with her helped solidify my skills and retaught me concepts I had forgotten about. I definitely recommend tutoring with Tessa!

Wonderful tutor!
Excellent tutor for my daughter. She learned the concept in less than an hour, gaining the confidence to stick with the class. Will definitely be booking another session for the next new concept.

Above my expectations and beyond!
Such a great match for my son! Tessa has so many wonderful skills and tools and creative ideas which resound with my teenage boy. Her patience and positive attitude go a long way! Her notes explaining each session are thorough and clear. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to supporting him in his process of growing in knowledge and confidence! Not only has she helped him improve his grade from F to C- in one half semester, but spurs on his growth by challenging him to the next level. He feels empowered now even though he is working through some learning disabilities. Tessa makes the lessons interesting to him and he enjoys learning once again from a long hiatus of interest. It is wonderful to see him self-confident in this subject! We are so grateful.
