Qualifications & Experience

Greetings! My name is Teresa Cuevas and I have over 16 years experience in teaching. I began my teaching career as a dance educator, and developed an interest in general and special needs education. I have worked with clients of all ages, and all different abilities. I am trained in the Orton Gillingham Reading Program, as well as Sterns Math. For my younger clients, I incorporate tactile activities within my lessons. Depending on the subject at hand, I blend games, cooking, weaving, dance or acting within my lessons. I enjoy being creative with my clients, and I look forward to our sessions together!

I cannot recommend Teresa highly enough. She has a fabulous disposition for working with young children, which is not always easy, especially when the children have some special needs. In terms of Teresa’s nature, you can see from her face how much she cares for children. Her face would literally light up when she saw our son and my son, who has difficulty with social cues and responding on point, was always eager to please Teresa. Even though my son displayed some of his difficult behavior in the sessions with Teresa, she always managed with a smile to bring him back on point. We only stopped getting Teresa’s services because we moved from NYC to Maryland last October. From a substantive perspective also, Teresa went above and beyond the tasks asked of her.
