I have worked as an educator and a private tutor for over two decades and have developed unique and time-tested strategies for each subject I tutor.

I have experience with students from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities.

Unlike many test prep tutors, I am equally proficient in math and English language arts, so students can feel confident working with me across multiple subjects.

I make understanding my students' thought processes a priority, which enables me to tailor each program to the individual student's needs and to provide a detailed analysis of areas that have room for improvement.

I carefully monitor each student's progress and provide thorough feedback to clients and their caregivers.

I am a seasoned performer with training in music and theater arts and can relate to students in a relaxed fashion that keeps the material engaging and entertaining.

I have worked for and with elite educational institutions throughout my career and have served in the admissions office of one of the nation's top colleges. I can provide insight from various perspectives to students seeking admission to highly competitive secondary schools and universities.

I have ties to several world class arts organizations and can offer additional insight to those considering or embarking on a career in the arts.

Tara was an amazing tutor! She explained things in ways that were easy to understand and gave appropriate homework assignments. My scores grew substantially over the time we worked together and I would not have been nearly as confident about my exam without her help. She helped me work through any problems that I had difficulties with and made sure I understood them completely. Her strategies were fun and engaging. I could not have picked a better tutor!

Working with Tara was amazing! She made my tutoring experience so easy, coming to me and making our sessions work around my difficult schedule. As a tutor, she was able to help me bring my scores up tremendously. Without her I wouldn’t have achieved anywhere near the scores I wanted. She helped me set goals and tackled them in an efficient and articulate manner. She also made sure I understood every problem I had an issue with and methods for solving the more difficult questions. I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for her!

Tara has guided our middle schooler through the SHSAT process since sixth grade. His practice score has improved substantially and he is now able to complete a practice test with confidence and on time. Additionally, since working with Tara his standardized test scores have also improved. He scores at 4 and above in both ELA and Math. Tara has prepared him to have confidence in both his work and his mind, to develop strategies for success, and to enjoy the sometimes frustrating process of figuring out this puzzle of an exam. His growth in the almost two years they have been working together has been exciting to witness.
A lifelong scholar with personal experience as a star student in the unique and competitive New York school system, Tara has a genuine appreciation for the whole child. Her gentle, calming instruction style and ability to engage students in meaningful and inspiring discussion make her a truly gifted and joyful tutor that any child would be lucky to spend time with.
