High school physics & engineering teacher, 20 yrs experience

Tara W.
I find nothing more rewarding than helping students to deeply understand how things work and to watch them grow more and more confident in their own abilities. I am a full-time high school physics and engineering teacher, and the classroom setting allows for all kinds of exciting projects, demos, labs, and group work. Conversely, working with students one-on-one gives me the opportunity to tailor my teaching to their individual learning styles.

This is my 21st year as a full-time high school...

ACT Math,
#### ACT Math

I'm a full-time high school science and math teacher and can help you or your child focus on test-taking strategies as well as solidifying understanding of the material itself. The math covered on the test isn't generally as challenging as some of the harder problems taught in school, but being able to work through the questions quickly is key.

Trigonometry
#### Trigonometry

I am a full-time high school physics and engineering teacher, and have both taught and tutored in high school math and chemistry as well. Trigonometry can often seem like a list of abstract and incomprehensible equations to be memorized; in reality, it's based on some key spatial relations and proportions, and by focusing on those, I can help students understand the formulas that come from them.

## Tara is an ideal physics tutor

My dd needs someone to help her review for tests, and Tara has been a godsend. She is both warm and efficient, and my daughter, who is not comfortable in every situation (she hates to be talked down to) appreciates that Tara respects her intelligence while at the same time fully unlocking the subject matter. My daughter's test grades went from Bs to As, and Tara has helped her understand how to study on her own.

Nancy, 8 lessons with Tara

## Extremely knowledgeable and Rigorous

Wonderful, a real find if you need a physics tutor for either 11th grade physics or AP physics in Manhattan. My child is a tough critic and has really enjoyed and benefitted from her sessions.

Janegail, 15 lessons with Tara

## Great tutor!!

Tara helped my daughter gain confidence and mastery of high school physics in just a few lessons! We will continue to use her throughout the year.
