About Tess

I have been tutoring English for five years to ESL students ranging from very beginning to advanced intermediate. The results have been that they have all passed their tests with flying colors. Part of my success with students, beyond my expertise, is creating a warm, relaxed environment conducive to learning.

I have been a non-fiction writer for ten years and I am passionate about creating a love of the English language in my students in the areas of reading, writing and speaking the language. This is more important to me than testing, but I understand the schools may feel differently. No matter, I will provide the student with plenty of ammunition to pass the tests while instilling in them an eagerness to proceed with all things English.

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.

ACT English

I have tutored English for over 13 years. I cover a full range from beginning to advanced. All my students have reached their goals.

ACT Reading

I have tutored in reading for 13 years. The student's knowledge of the subject has ranged between beginning to advanced. I currently tutor reading to El-Hi students online.

Writing

I have been writing professionally for over ten years. I am especially proficient with non-fiction article writing, but I do step aside and let my creativity out occasionally. I always edit and proofread my own work before I submit it and also edit and proofread the works of others.

I score essays on a seasonal basis for students from kindergarten through the senior year in high school so I am aware of the kind of reading and writing assignments demanded from high school students.

I have been tutoring English to ESL students for six years and find that rewarding.
