My name is Tara. I have been teaching Spanish and English for the past twenty two years in both public and private school. I am at my best and most happy when teaching the subjects I love, Spanish and English. I have also been tutoring Spanish high school students in Regents courses for approximately eight years. I am very energetic, patient, and kind. I believe in using many types of strategies and materials to make my students successful. I have collected many materials from conferences I have attended. It is my true belief that every student can and will be successful, given the right tools. My goal is to help you, the student, perform at your very best!
