Tisha Saffa adds the “M” in STEM to Rippowam Labs

For many years, Rippowam Labs tried to offer STEM learning opportunities that were not offered anywhere else. Sure, we succeeded in robotics, microcontrollers and Open Source software – but we were always missing something.  But now, thanks to Tisha Saffa, we have finally become a one-stop shop in STEM education !

Tisha  has taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math in Fairfield county for the past 20 years. Currently she is a math teacher in the Stamford public schools, and an instructor at Norwalk Community College for Kids, where she teaches her own “Math Wizards,” a math enrichment program for young children.

She tutors students from elementary school math through high school Algebra and Geometry. Tisha’s mission is simple…to eliminate “fear” of math through fun, engaging activities, and allow students of all ages to discover the mathematical beauty that is all around us.

Tisha  is a true professional we are so glad she has decided to join us. She rounds out a talented roster of  teachers that will be available for after-school and weekend tutoring at our makerspace.  Stay tuned for more information!
