About Tess

I have been teaching and sharing my knowledge in design software for six years. When I teach, I open my student, company staff and colleague to the endless possibilities of the software by breaking it down to the basics of functionality and understanding. I have since extended this approach to my teaching of languages and elementary math and found out that this approach in collaboration with patience has proven to work best specifically when I teach elementary math and students of younger age groups.

While it is easy to master a language, software or even math just to get by, understanding the logic, format and principal behind each topic or software will truly make you a rock star, then you truly start to have fun learning and become a problem solver.

It is my goal to make all my students rock stars and the problem solvers among their peers.
