Terra says: “Hi, I’m Terra! I love to help students set goals for themselves and work to achieve them. I taught 3rd grade for six years, and have been tutoring for four years. “Cheerleading” plays a role in my teaching style; I work to instill self-confidence and pride in my students, because sometimes they don’t know what they are capable of! I am a proud UCONN Husky. In my spare time, I teach workout classes at New Balance Fitness Club, take my dog Forrest on hikes, and seek out great coffee shops! Looking forward to working with you and your family.”
