Gene Tavernetti began his career in education in 1977. He has
served as a coach, teacher, counselor, and administrator. He found
his true passion when he began to work one-one as an instructional
coach. It was during this work that he witnessed the immediate,
direct, and positive impact he could have on teachers,
administrators, and ultimately student learning.
In 2006, Dr. Tavernetti co-founded Total Educational Systems Support (TESS). Since its founding, TESS, and Gene, have trained and coached thousands of educators in teacher directed instruction emphasizing strategies for engagement, language development, and higher order thinking.
Gene continues to work with selected districts training teachers, coaches, and administrators in reality-based effective instruction.
