Hi. I have over four years of experience as a private high school math tutor and over 12 years of experience as an educator. I can help you prepare you for standardized tests, prepare you for the upcoming school year, or just help you avoid the dreaded summer math loss. I specialized in math anxiety.

I began tutoring by helping other students in a community service project in graduate school. The students asked me to return and I loved it, so I keep returning. After graduate school, I continued tutoring subjects ranged from remedial algebra, geometry, trigonometry, to calculus, calculus-based physics, and chemistry. I enjoy helping students with their homework and prepare for their exams - school and SAT, ACT, SSAT, and PSAT math test preparation.

I prefer one-on-one tutoring and enjoy engaging my students with fun and challenging math problems. I like to apply math to real world situations to allow my students to fully understand the relevance and necessity of knowing and using math in their everyday lives.

I began as a tutor with Wyzant Tutoring in June 2015 and my background check is complete. Please contact me about any questions you may have! I look forward to working with you to reaching your GPA and test score goals!

Smiling About Geometry

My daughter's experience with Ms. S left her smiling about geometry and excited to go back to school and use what she learned. I could not be happier with her service.

Nichelle, 1 lesson with Tara

Very good tutor!

She helped me so much on my ACT and was very kind and patient. She thoroughly went through each practice problem to make sure I understood everything and gave me examples to help me remember. My ACT score went up greatly.

Laura, 4 lessons with Tara

Patient

She helped me with my anxiety and made me feel more comfortable and confident. She went through each problem with me step by step so I would understand. She was more patient than my algebra 1 teacher this past year. I thank her for all she taught me.
