About Tara

I love to teach and learn as well as see the growth in my students. I have been a private tutor for 4 years. I have played club sports for 18 years and now work as a sports coach at a middle school while I get my masters in Sports Medicine. Dedication and hard work pay off in the end. I like to make learning fun and educational.

I specialize in tutoring math, English, science and sport fitness. I try to explain in different ways the problem so that the student understands the solution. We go over simple to complex problems to offer a better understanding in the subject area. Not only do I use the book but manipulatives to create a visual concept of learning. I give questions to test mastery of the subject. For sports, I go over the basic skills, and then do drills to practice and improve the sport.

I hold myself to a high standard and want my students to have the same respect and caliber to learn. I often ask for feedback from the students in order for me to evaluate my teaching to them. I try to be flexible with time. I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. I am happy to travel to the student’s house to tutor.

There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an exam and finish with education. Life is about leaning to succeed. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
