About Tamar

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.
