My patient approach is calming for my clients and helps them to feel in control of the pace at which we work.

I have been tutoring computers and technology for over 20 years. My specialty is working with beginners, baby boomers and seniors, to bring them up to speed and gain confidence using their many devices, software and apps. My patient approach is calming for my clients and helps them to feel in control of the pace at which we work. My explanations of computer terms are understandable to those with no prior computer knowledge and I make learning fun and enjoyable. Each lesson includes my taking notes, clear step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish each task. I encourage questions at all times and understand the need for repetition.

I love the personal connection associated with being a tutor! I've met so many wonderful people over the years and have developed amazing, lasting relationships. Tutoring computers is definitely my life's purpose and I can't imagine doing anything else.

I received my BA in Mathematical Sciences from Kean University, NJ. Always problem solving, I do not give up on difficult computer issues. I will work at them until they are fixed.

My base rate is $150 per hour and I travel to meet you within parts of Union, Essex, Morris and Somerset counties of New Jersey. If you have any questions for me, please do not hesitate to reach out by sending me a message.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

All reviews great tutor

Great teacher

Even though it's been nearly 2 years since I worked with Tara, I still remember that she was a great tutor. She showed me a lot of Photoshop shortcuts and tips. I would definitely return to her for more tutoring if I needed it.
