Bio

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 17th year as a full-time high school...

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 17th year as a full-time high school science (physics & engineering) and math teacher. I began tutoring privately while getting my undergraduate degree in engineering (biomedical-electrical) and graduate degree in education. I'd love to help you or your child see the joy of science and math!

I have an engineering background, so I'm well aware of the applications even the most seemingly abstract math topics. Additionally, I have both tutored in math and taught it in high school, so I understand the curriculum and am able to explain it in different ways.

Science and math can be challenging, but that's also why they're so satisfying once you understand them. I'm available for tutoring both online and in person and want to help you or your child get to that level of satisfaction.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

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. I have years of experience to draw on and can both break down concepts to their fundamentals and also demonstrate applications in order to make abstract concepts more relevant and concrete.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

As a full-time high school physics and engineering teacher who has also taught high school math, I not only have experience teaching the material but can also make it relevant to students through real-world applications.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus was invented specifically as a way of solving physics problems, and as a physics teacher with an engineering background, I can not only help students understand the concepts but also make them relevant and tangible through real-world applications.

I have years of experience to draw on and can both break down concepts to their fundamentals and also demonstrate applications in order to make abstract concepts more relevant and concrete. With my background in biomedical-electrical engineering, I have many real-world situations to draw on for chemical applications.
Geometry,

Geometry

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. One of the tricks with geometry is being able to visual the shapes and the relationships that result; I can help students work on their spatial reasoning, which makes everything that follows much easier to comprehend.

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.

All reviews helped my daughter

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.

Happy, 11 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.
