Personal Statement

Hello,

My name is Tara, and I have been tutoring for standardized exams for over 10 years. I have a Master of Science in genetics from The University of Chicago and Bachelor of Science in biotechnology from Northeastern University. I truly love the teaching/tutoring profession; after receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from my previous students and their parents, I decided to pursue tutoring full-time. Tutoring is much more than just work for me ? I plan to continue providing service...

Reviews

Tara has the advantage of being really comfortable and fluent in colloquial American English, a quality not always found in Hindi speakers. This means he can suggest nuance and correct register for Hindi. He comes with flexibility in that he's willing to accommodate a student's learning style. In my case, I was very directive (pushy, assertive, call it what you will) and I met no conflict. He understands the grammar of Hindi, not always the case with native speakers. I'd recommend a student prepare ahead for every lesson. Tara's a clock-watcher. In order to get the maximum benefit from lesson, Tara's students should be active and not passive. Every minute counts. A lesson can be intense, so wondering in expecting the teacher to perform won't bring the best result. To top it off, Tara's bright.

"I will try to teach you everything I know". Those were Tara's words to my step-daughter whom he tutored in preparation for the ACT. From the beginning, he dove in with practical test taking tips. He was respectful or her limited time and focused on the areas where she needed most help. Her confidence has increased as she's learned simple but powerful techniques to quickly solve problems. She feels better and more ready than ever before about her upcoming exam. I appreciate Tara's commitment and assistance and would strongly recommend him as a tutor.
