About Tamari

Having years of experience in writing critical essays, taking numerous tests and working in many different capacities since my academic years as a graduate, undergraduate student in the arts, I have a well-rounded education and excellent communication skills. Because of my multi-cultural background, I have become increasingly sympathetic to the enormous challenges facing individuals who come from different countries, cultures or have not had the advantages of a full academic education.

Currently I am working with an adult student who does not know how to read or write yet, teaching him the basics of written language as it relates to speech. In less than a month, this senior citizen is experiencing the excitement of a child who discovers new concepts like opening up birthday presents at each lesson! I set customized quizzes at each session to help my students grasp and retain key concepts quickly, and re-test on subsequent sessions, to jog the memory...

I have extensive tutoring experience in a variety of fields. I have tutored in English as well as in Social Studies, Science and English Literature. HI have helped students learn to analyze literature, write essays, understand historical events, and set goals as individual as you are, or as standardized as preparing for specific proficiency tests, like citizenship, SAT prep, or GED... One High School Student studied with me privately in the areas of Social Studies, Science and English. She worked with me for about 1 year, for a minimum of 1 to 2 hours per week after school. With the help of my tutelage, she was able to pass her immediate school tests in those subject areas, and eventually, her SAT exams.

Earned a M.M. and a B.F.A. (Masters and Bachelor of Fine Arts); My graduate and undergraduate degrees are in Music Performance & Composition. Life has dealt me a lot of experiences OUTSIDE of music, for me to have learned to express myself in many other ways! This performing arts background has helped, however, in developing critical skills such as careful preparation and public relations....
Parents have brought their very young children to me to teach them the basics of music and, specifically, piano. I have brought children as young as 4 years old to the level of being able to play a musical composition.

My sense of humor, creative approach, and playful interaction using a variety of tools, toys and analogies, sets me apart from other academic tutors: because I grew up in a family of artists, the synergistic interaction of the visual and performing arts as well as the integration of culture, especially immigrant culture, into the lessons provides interest; mnemonic assistance (activation of memory cues), and color.

Call or text me today--or get in touch with me through this forum: Let me help you expand your knowledge, strengthen your vocabulary; improve your writing and reading skills, help you construct a well written, effective letter or essay, or internalize the subjects you are learning about more fully.

Approved subjects

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.

English

I have both a Graduate and Undergraduate Degree in the Arts and have written Academic papers for many years. From 2006 to 2011 I wrote many legal documents and certifications. I have received a Teaching Certification through the ARC Program in CT and currently work as a private tutor to adults in the New Haven County CT area as well as online.
