"Fantastic SAT Tutor - Helped Raise My Son's Score by 250!"
Denice from Phoenix, AZ on 1/30/14
Tamara reviewed my son's prior SAT test to focus on his areas of need. She was patient, timely, extremely knowledgeable, and communicated well with a 17 year old. Her tutoring, strategies, and tips helped my son raise his SAT score from 1710 to 1960. Thanks to Tamara, my son obtained the scores he needed to get a FULL tuition scholarship and be accepted into Barrett, The Honors College at ASU!! I would highly recommend Tamara as a SAT/ACT tutor. The small amount of money you invest in tutoring with be minimal compared to the tens of thousands you receive in scholarships offers.

Tamara has been such a wonderful tutor for my son. She is teaching him so much and he really enjoys the sessions.
When my husband and I were deciding on hiring a tutor we chose Tamara and could not be happier with the results. In less than a month she enabled our son to improve his scores on both the SAT and ACT. He scored 250 points higher on the SAT and also a higher score on the ACT. My son is so excited about his score and feels very confident about applying to colleges. She was very helpful with all subjects. I highly recommend Tamara for any student who wants to improve their testing scores.

Tamara takes extremely great notes that are short but really describe and help me to learn the material. I've already gone up one letter grade!
"Outstanding tutor! "

Tamara is a great tutor and we were so fortunate to find her. She provided tutoring services for my daughter during her Senior year in HS. She helped my daughter with ACT preparation, English, Math and Spanish. Results were amazing! All we can say is that we wish we had met her sooner. Tamara was knowledgeable, professional, prompt, reliable and polite. She knows how to get her students interested in learning! In my opinion, this is the greatest quality any tutor/teacher can possess. Thank you for everything and now we off to college!

My daughter really likes the techniques Tamara uses to approach the critical reading sections. She feels she is getting better after just a few sessions.
"Mandarin Language coach"
Zoltan from Phoenix, AZ on 11/1/12
We have used many different Mandarin language coaches but Tamara was the best. In addition to her knowledge of the language she was very easy to understand. Her first language is English which I believe makes it easier for the student to understand. She was very professional and followed up after the session. I highly recommend hiring her.
"Persistent and Patient"
Maureen from Mesa, AZ on 9/12/12
My 17 year old daughter was tutored in English by Tamara after terrible results on the PSAT. She had 10 tutoring session over the Spring before taking the SAT in June. Tamara is so nice, persistent, and patient that my daughter continued to work well with her. When she took the SAT's, she felt they were easy compared to the PSAT's and she her score was quite a bit higher. I think that Tamara really helps the students to understand each type of English question they'll get and what tools to use. It worked for my daughter.
"Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!"
Pamela from Scottsdale, AZ on 5/27/12
Tamara is a great tutor and we were so fortunate to find her. She provided tutoring services for both of my children, covering AP Spanish, college Spanish (level 202) and beginning Mandarin. Tamara was always professional, prompt, reliable and nurturing. She is a hard worker and a joy to be around. We would definitely hire her again!
"Working Well "
Julie from Tempe, AZ on 3/20/12
I chose Tamara from a list of tutors figuring if she didn't work well with my daughter we could chose another one. Tamara is a very good tutor and is able to dumb down facts and information so that my daughter has a good understanding of what she needs to do. My dd took the PSAT in October then had 2 lessons with Tamara prior to taking the SAT in January. We were forced to have my daughter take the January test due to other obligations on the later testing dates. My daughter improved her score with just 2 lessons and a strategy put together by Tamara prior to the test. We have been very happy with Tamara. She is prompt, prepared and flexible which works well for us.
"Excellent, very knowledgable"
Sharon from Scottsdale, AZ on 3/1/11
It has only been two lessons but my 16 year old son went from fighting me because "he wasn't going to a tutor" to really enjoying what he was learning. He came home from the second lesson very excited because he actually was learning something. He said, "Thanks mom, I'm really learning, my SAT scores will definitely be higher next time."
