I have been a lifelong teacher and tutor; for the past nine years I have worked as a math tutor at Saddleback College where I received the 2010 Tutor of the Year Award. I also tutor algebra, geometry, trigonometry and precalculus to middle school and high school students.
As an experienced tutor I am very efficient and effective in helping students understand the material. Often just a few sessions are enough to help students to get back on track, give them confidence, reduce stress and improve their grades. I have a lot of patience and a true passion for tutoring math.
I usually tutor from my home office in Dana Point, but I am willing to drive to a more convenient location. My hours are flexible.

Because of her patience, calm demeanor and very clear explanations, Tamar has eliminated my daughter's math phobia and anxiety. My daughter actually enjoys math now and looks forward to her tutoring sessions.
In my first lesson with Tamar she had me understanding a new concept easily and lets me be hands on with each problem which has me understanding it fully than just watching a professor in a classroom work the problem on a board. Tamar is patient and makes sure you understand the concept before moving forward. I've been in Algebra for countless years, different tutors and teachers and I'm finally happy to find someone like Tamar because I'm sure she's going to get me where I need to be in this crazy world of math! Highly recommend her!
Tamar is great teacher! My son was tutored by her today for the first time and he really enjoyed her teaching methods and left feeling like he really understood his geometry assignment. He will definitely be seeing her again. Thank you Tamar
Tamar helped my son first and now she is helping my daughter. We have tried other tutors with no luck. Both my kids struggle with math but find her easy to understand and feel confident when they finish. They both WANT to be tutored by her!
Tamar has been a tremendous help to my son. He so desperately needed a Math tutor; we found Tamar and couldn't he happier. Her patience and style of teaching enable my son to have a better understanding of the concepts and my son doesn't feel completely lost anymore.
Tamar is a great tutor! I always have fun and enjoy going to tutoring because she is amazing! She is very patient with me if I don't understand something and she always re explains it to me then! Best tutor out there! Definitely worth a try and definitely worth your money! You will not be disappointed! :)
My daughter understood her homework after one session and wants to go back! She did not want to go to a tutor at first but not is more open to help. My daughter felt that Tomar was very patient and did not talk down to her which she feels that most adults tend to do when they teach.
Tamar is a consummate professional. she has helped my daughter immensely over the years and my daughter comes away from each session with a better understanding of the concepts and increased confidence for test time
She helped me understand the double angle and half angle identities and how to use them when starting a math problem. Also, when verifying identities we looked at the question and asked ourself what side do we start with. We had all the formulas right in front of us so this helped a lot! Tamar is my first tutor and my favorite one because she is patient, sweet, funny, and smart. I can be myself around her and ask her any questions I have. Thank you!!!
Tamar made my daughter feel very comfortable with her and with the material. We look forward to working with her again.
Tamar has a great way of explaining the concepts that make it much easier to understand and repeat going forward.
Trig. Excellent teacher. Patient and kind. Knows how to teach. Wish I would have used her all year. I would recommend her.
She helped me review some things I wasn't quite understanding. I really liked her teaching method! She did a good job explaining things in a clear way that made sense to me. I feel more prepared for my final. Thank you Tamar!
In one session, Tamar cleared up my daughter's SAT math struggles! I wish we had gone a few times before she had to take the SAT. I would recommend her highly in general!
Jack is feeling confident and prepared for his final exam. We appreciate your patients and ability to keep Jack engaged and interested in learning the material.
Tamar is PATIENT and explains the math concepts so your child understands them. She is an extremely nice and wonderful person as well as fantastic teacher. My daughter always leaves feeling confident about math. Can't say enough GREAT things about her!!!
Tamar is knowledgeable about the subject matter and her help has given my son the extra confidence he needs to be successful in this subject. In observing her work with my son I am impressed that she is patient, corrects him in a positive manner and encourages his progress. She always responds in a timely manner to my calls/e-mails and is flexible when our schedule has changes. It is a pleasure working with her!
Tamar is always willing to assist our daughter making time for her with flexible times and days.
Our daughter enjoys her time spent with Tamar and receives her guidance well.
I am very pleased to have Tamar as my tutor! She is thorough when explaining math procedures that were once hard to understand and she utilizes our time together in a beneficial way! I appreciate Tamar's time, and I look forward to our next session!
Our first lesson with Tamar was an excellent lesson. Tamar was very good with my daughter, and we are looking forward to our daughter getting caught up and having a much better understanding of Geometry.
Tamar has been easy to work with and our son enjoys working and learning with her. We are very happy with her services so far, and we plan to work with her on an on-going basis all semester.
We recommend her highly!
I found Tamara to be patient and knowledgeable in Algebra. She seems to know all the right helpful tricks- exactly what I need. I am learning many of the Algebra concepts for the first time and have lots of questions, and I find that Tamara can explain things to me in a way that I "get".
I wish I had known about WyzAnt and Tamara B. prior to my Fall 2013 Beginning Algebra class.
My first meeting with her was a great experience!!
Tamar is a gem. She is such a great tutor. My grandson, age 12, adores her. Thanks to her help, he is getting all As in math. Before she started tutoring him, he was completely lost.
When I was asking how she felt her tutoring was going, my daughter replied,"Tamar definitely knows what she is doing, she knows math really well!!"
In just a few sessions my daughter is gaining confidence again....
Tamar, thank you!
I would highly recommend Tamar! She has helped my daughter so much with her Algebra II. She is very patient and understanding and Tamar explains everything so thoroughly and when my daughter walked away from the tutor session she fully understood everything that she came in to learn about.
Tamar has been a Godsend to my son Michael. He was very stressed about his upcoming math finals. After only 3 sessions with Tamar he is feeling so much more confident. Tamar returned my call within a couple of hours of my initial call to her. She is always responsive, very kind and most understanding. She knew exactly what to do to give Michael support. I would highly recommend her. She is an A+ tutor and I would seek her help again in a heartbeat!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
