About Tara

Hi there! My name is Tara and I've been tutoring on and off for about 6 years.

I started in high school by volunteering to tutor middle schoolers in Math, and I continued by working at the Writing Help Center at college and eventually becoming a T.A. I really love tutoring, and even though it's pretty cliche, I think every student deserves the chance to get individualized educational attention.

The point is, I'm a big nerd who actually likes school, and I'd love to help you be the best student you can be.

English teachers run in my family. My mom is one, and she was correcting my subject-verb agreement when I was 4. As a result, I'm very good with grammar and I have a passion for language and literature. I'm also an excellent writer. In my whole college career, I never received less than a 91 on a paper at a very writing intensive school. I'd love to help you turn a good paper into a great one. For further proof, I did exceptionally well on my SAT reading and writing sections, scoring a 740 and 780 respectively. I'd be happy to share my SAT tips and tricks.

As for Bible Studies, my undergraduate degree is in Religious Studies, where I spent my time concentrating on Hebrew Bible translation and interpretation. I even TA'd the Bible: Text and Context class for two years at my school. It's my passion, and I'd love to help you out.

I've also taken three years of Biblical Hebrew and it has been one of my favorite subjects ever. I concentrated in Hebrew Bible translation and interpretation all through undergrad. I'm not as equipped for Modern Hebrew, but if you need help with a biblical passage, I'm your gal.

I have practically open availability, so I'm willing to help you out any time. Whether you need someone to assist before that 8am class or you just remembered you have a test tomorrow and need to see a tutor at 11pm, I'm here to help. Feel free to contact me with any questions! I want to make sure I'm the best tutor for what you need.

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.

Bible Studies

I majored in Religious Studies at Rhodes College where I concentrated in the study of the Hebrew Bible. I was even a teacher's assistant for the Bible: Text and Context class for two years. I have received multiple awards for my work in Religious Studies including Student of the Year and the Joseph Reeves Hyde Award.

Hebrew

I have taken Biblical Hebrew for three years. Furthermore, I've done exceptionally well in the subject, going as far as to take advanced lessons by myself from the professor. I actively translate the Hebrew Bible as part of my scholarship in Religious Studies.

Religion

I majored in Religious Studies at Rhodes College where I concentrated in the study of the Hebrew Bible. I was even a teacher's assistant for the Bible: Text and Context class for two years. I have received multiple awards for my work in Religious Studies including Student of the Year and the Joseph Reeves Hyde Award, which reflect my passion and expertise for more than just biblical study. I have taken classes about a wide variety of religions and I was also president of the interfaith organization at my college.
