About Tara

As an accredited English teacher of six years, I seek to develop a love for literature and writing in all students I encounter. I enjoy working with students who enjoy English/Language Arts coursework, but who might need a bit of help taking their ideas to the next level. I also enjoy working with students who have struggled to enjoy English/Language Arts coursework because I feel I can facilitate a love for it within my teaching and tutoring.

I excel tutoring grades 7 - 11, but am certified to teach grades 6 - 12. I have successfully completed my BS in English Language Arts Education from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL as well as my MA in Special Education: Gifted from the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL.

I have also taught Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) AS General Paper (pass rate 97%--47 out of 48 students passed) and AS English Language (pass rate 80%--11 out of 14 students passed). NOTE: CIE courses are very similar in rigor as AP and IB English courses, so I feel confident I could help students in advanced English classes.
