About Tara

While I don't teach to the test, the way I naturally work with students helps them. I build confidence when they never did in math before (I am told I am warm and friendly). I ask questions on what they do and don't understand with me, with their teachers - increase their test scores. 97% of my Algebra students scored Proficient or above last year alone. I build a deep understanding so they no longer NEED me! My goal is to help students help themselves. If I do my job well, you will no longer need me as a tutor. (I consider myself a guide). I was an Algebra Teacher, I am a math instructor at Mathnasium and I am a Math Content Editor at The Achievement Network. Ask me more about these backgrounds and I am happy to help.

I have a Master's in Education with a 3.98 GPA from Oregon (Pacific University). In this degree, I earned a licensure with the state of Oregon, New Jersey and Massachusetts where I am certified as a highly qualified teacher for both middle school and high school mathematics.

My degree and teaching background both are focused on STEM (Science, Education, Technology, Math) based learning. Before teaching, I earned my BA in business in Management Information Systems (IT project implementation).

I have been teaching now for over 7 years for both volunteer to serve the communities in need and for profit.
