About Tamara

During my undergraduate studies at Shepherd University, I was able to assist several students as a tutor through the university. I feel that students that need extra help can do much better when working one-on-one with a knowledgeable teacher. For the past eight years I have worked with at-risk youth and have tutored them in a variety of subjects. Many of these youth suffered from ADD/ADHD and multiple learning disabilities.

My teaching approach includes ensuring the student has a thorough comprehension of the fundamentals that make up the current lesson. When a student has trouble with the current lesson, at times they are lacking in understanding the fundamentals of the subject. For example, when tutoring algebra, it is important that the student has a good grasp on basic math skills in order to be successful in this subject. If needed, I will help the student build basic math skills in addition to assisting in the current lesson which will help them in the long term as well as the short term.

My undergraduate degree is in recreation and leisure studies from Shepherd University, and I also received my master's degree from American Public University. I have five years experience working with at-risk youth as a recreation specialist, where I also coached multiple sports teams including volleyball, flag football, soccer, basketball, softball, and swimming.

I look forward to working with you.
