My name is Tara and I am a nurturing, patient and engaging professional writer and teacher who is available for tutoring. I believe in making learning fun and, to this end, have studied The Theory of Multiple Intelligences and I enjoy working with people who have various learning styles.
To continue, I have over 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience from kindergarten through college age, as well as adult learners. I am also a non-smoker, native English speaker, college graduate, and long time Upper West Side resident. I also have a professional background in the arts and entertainment.
I have worked in many private and public schools throughout New York and New Jersey, as well as for the New York Public Library and many summer camps. Workshops I have taught and developed include: visual art, creative writing, combining visual art with creative writing, literacy, theatre, creative movement and video for regular education, gifted and talented, ESL/ELL/bilingual and special needs students ages two and up. I have also partnered with classroom teachers to co-teach academic subjects, integrating the arts and The Theory of Multiple Intelligences into the curriculum, thus enhancing, enriching and supporting classroom study.
Tutoring Focus: Study and Organizational Skills, Writing, Reading, Writing College Application Essays, English/AP English, Cartooning, and more.
