About Tara

Working in the classroom for more than 8 years, I have found the best way to spark that passion is to ensure the work connects to my students in a meaningful way. This approach strives to help students become independent life long learners beyond their immediate need to complete a assignment or secure a good grade. I specialize in 7th -9th math, covering 7th and 8th grade common core math, common core algebra, regents prep and more.

If you strive to have your child develop skills for life call me, the Math Ninja - I will help your child build the skills needed to reach their math potential.

I believe in diversity of thought. I believe in championing our students to ability to think differently despite the current constraints of the testing environment. Students think differently so their approach to problems will and can be different too.

I have found more often then not, those students who struggle in math do not have an issue with the content itself but more so in the way in which the content is delivered. When I begin working with a student, I start by identifying their vantage point and teach the math concepts from their view. I show them how to transfer their thought process to paper and master the most efficient problem solving methods.


I have taught the following: 7th math since 2007; Math 180 to students who receive lower than 3 on the NY State Exam since 2014; and 7th graders common core algebra since 2013 (100% passed the exam). I have tutored: 8th grade math since 2014-2015 school year (one student) and Common Core Regents 2014-2015 school year (two students). I was a co-coach of our middle school math team from 2007-2014.
