About Taryn

Nice to meet you! I've been tutoring for over 15 years, I started my own business in Los Angeles a few years out of college. I was born and raised on Long Island, so I'm back home now! I was a Spanish major in college, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania. I tutor all subjects up to and including 10th grade. Currently I am teaching a number of students ranging in age from 1st grade-10th grade. I am also currently homeschooling a 10th grader.

I am extremely patient and love making learning fun for all of my students. I loved school, and I think that has a lot to do with my teachers and their approach to learning. I would say my strength is: I'm really able to adapt to each child's individual personality and pace; in my opinion, this is so crucial. Three adjectives I would use to describe myself are: passionate, enthusiastic, & easygoing. Each session should be informative & fun. I want my students to look forward to our sessions! I promise they will. :)

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ISEE

I have had experience teaching many kids the ISEE. I am currently teaching a 4th grader in preparation to change schools. I am extremely familiar with the format, elements, types of questions, and test taking strategies. I use books I have ordered that serve as terrific guides. Thank you!

Public Speaking

I've been a news broadcaster for the last 13 years at the national and local level. I specialize in public speaking. I am trained in live and extemporaneous speaking in front of crowds, large and small. My approach is effective, patient, and thorough. It's a multi-step process.
