I am Teresa! I graduated from Duke University in 2015 with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology and minors in Spanish and Psychology. As an undergraduate, I tutored elementary and middle school students with the America Reads/America Counts program. I also spent a summer in Urubamba, Peru, teaching English and Spanish literacy skills to elementary students. After graduating, I moved to Houston, TX, to teach in the KIPP Houston Public School system. I have experience teaching Biology and Geometry at the high school level.

While the majority of my background experience is in STEM, I also have extensive experience studying Spanish and Psychology. I am conversationally fluent in Spanish and pursuing graduate study in Psychology.

As a tutor and a teacher, I am unique in my willingness to learn and tutor any subject. I strongly believe that the best way to learn is by doing, and that teaching others makes me a better student. I am patient, innovative and always listening for the shift that will make the biggest difference!

As a middle and high school student, I struggled in math. I know how frustrating this subject can be for students from my own personal experience! As a student and a teacher, I have learned that there are many ways to solve any problem, and that establishing a strong conceptual framework is the most important thing for student success. I am committed to my students learning math in a way that works for them.

Please feel empowered to shoot me a message with any questions you have! I am excited to meet you and support your academic success :)

Yoga

I have been practicing yoga since March 2016. In June 2018, I became certified as a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hr level. I am completing a teaching internship at a Houston yoga studio. In addition, I regularly engage in svadhyaya, or self-study, to deepen my own understanding of the practice.
