I am planning our visit for the last week in May. Does Tioga road ever open partially?

Yes. On the west side they sometimes open the road to Yosemite Creek.

On the east side CalTrans opens the road to the park boundary at Tioga Pass.

Often, the park service has the road open by Memorial Day, but they make no guarantees or commitments. Some years it's not until June, a few July. See this for opening dates in the past:

Given the heavy snow this year, I wouldn't expect any opening until June at the earliest. They are having to bulldoze snow just to get things to 10' levels for their snow blowers to work.
