Student & Parent Testimonials
French for Fun
Learning french as an adult is daunting, but Tara made the experience exceptionally comfortable. She took the time to understand our goals and developed games and exercises to nurture the skills we needed to achieve them. Tara is patient, structured, approachable, and full of positive energy. On the nights that were particularly challenging, or when we were struggling to overcome the latest plateau, she was a steadfast coach and our greatest cheerleader.
Spanish for University
Tara helped me out this past school year with my first year Spanish course. I was struggling with the language and sought out more help in order to succeed. In our time together she helped me better understand conjugations, definitions, past/present/future participles and their context. If it wasn’t for her patience, teaching practices and strategies, I never would have passed the course. She was a huge help.
English for Elementary & French for High School
Tara tutored French and English to my two kids, ages 13 and 16, for two years. Although both my kids are polar opposite, Tara was able to connect with both of them and she was able to adapt and accommodate each of their learning styles. Both had very successful outcomes and I would recommend Tara without any hesitation. Tara is professional, punctual, reliable and always available to touch base and to answer any questions!
