About Tara

My love of tutoring stems from enjoying watching others find their own passion and desire to learn. One of the greatest gifts which my late mentor did for me was help me to discover what I truly wanted out of life and learn the tools to achieve my goals. I recently earned my Masters degree in clinical neuroscience from a joint program between Stanford University and Palo Alto University. Currently, I work as a full time clinician within a hospital based research center.
I am a published academic writer and continuously work to remain relevant within the academic world by always challenging myself and seeking out new learning opportunities. I have 7 years of tutoring experience, working through the Writers' Center at Eastern Washington University and also disability services at Palo Alto University. With this extensive tutoring experience, I am able to truly team up with a student and work with them in ways which they learn most effectively.

With a Masters degree in clinical neuroscience, I am an expert in clinical psychology as well as neuroscience and biology. I have 2 Bachelor's degrees, one of which is in sociology and communications.

Earning 2 Bachelor's degrees and my Masters has required quite a bit of english and writing skill. I have published for scientific research, and also have extensive experience with a variety of other professional writing projects. In tutoring within university systems, I came to enjoy assisting students with personal statements as they apply to college or graduate school admission and working with them on resumes and CVs.

I look forward to working with you! I have availability during evenings on weekdays and anytime during the weekends. I am happy to meet with you in the location of your choosing and discuss your goals for tutoring and working with you to develop a plan for success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I am a published academic writer and have experience with professional writing which is applicable in several disciplines.

Nutrition

I have studied nutrition primarily from a sports psychology perspective. When I work with athletes clinically, we often address their nutritional goals for performance. I have a BS in biology which allowed me to take 3 advanced nutrition courses as electives. These courses educated me in micro and macro nutrients as well as the biological process of digestion and how the body maintains blood sugar and utilizes energy. I am familiar with calculating TDEE - or someone's Total Daily Energy Expenditure - which is different for everyone. TDEE is essential when establishing calorie or macronutrient intake goals.

Psychology

I am a licensed clinician in Behavioral Health. Regularly, I provide clinical therapy within a group setting and to individuals. My masters degree (MS) is in clinical neuroscience, allowing me to contribute to academic and medical research within psychology and endocrine sciences. In addition to being employed full-time as a clinician, I am a published author within psychological research.

Sociology

I completed an interdisciplinary BA from Eastern Washington University in 1999 with Sociology being one of my majors. In addition, I am second author on a scientific publication regarding the application of sociological concepts within psychotherapy - this paper was published in a journal which focuses on sociology rather than a clinical journal. Finally, I have experience with tutoring students in both undergraduate and graduate level sociology.
