About Tamara

I am certified to teach elementary education and have five years experience at this level and seven at the middle school level.

I have experience in Instructional Coaching and as a curriculum specialist. I have spent the last ten years teaching and leading programs for gifted learners, as well as providing remediation for struggling learners. I currently hold middle school licensure in math and ELA, as well as certification in AIG (Academically/Intellectually Gifted), and Elementary Education.

I am also a published writer that has spent many years helping others hone their writing skills. I have a definitive way of conducting tutoring cycles, complete with formative assessment and progress monitoring. I look forward to learning you or your child's needs and tailoring instruction to meet those needs specifically.
