About Tara

I guess one would say I am easy to work with. I work well with all genders, sexualities, ages, races and nationalities. That is one thing that I have that other tutors might not. I worked as a Tutor at American River College in the ESL program, and then also worked as a tutor at Sac State where I got my Masters Degree. I understand the language and will help you get from where you are currently to where you want to go, without discrimination, frustration or lack of patience. I am a member of the LGBT community, so I am also comfortable with that population.

I am working on a novel and a non-fiction book and have published and performed poetry. Words are a big part of my life and I like to share my love of their magic.

Taking a test? Writing a paper? Wanting to improve your skills? Give me a chance to help you.

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.

Drawing

I received my Bachelor of Studio Arts degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder and have shown my drawings in a couple of shows. I am able to utilize charcoal, pastel, ink, and other graphic mediums; however, my medium of choice is graphite. I specialize in portraiture, figurative and photo-realism.

Writing

I am a creative writer and have also taught composition at the college level (CSUS). I understand both global and specific issues that are important in academic, creative or professional writing. Let me help you sell your words and ideas.
