I taught SAT literature and writing for my entire time in Shanghai, helping students learn the intricacies of the grammar and the best way to craft an essay. Now that the test is changing, I look forward to changing with it.

Writing essays is similar to math. It is a formula. You need an introduction with a thesis, body paragraphs supporting that thesis, and a conclusion.

Now, structuring an essay is the simple part- easy to teach, easy to get down. However, it is writing those first few sentences that really frustrates most students.

I have a method that I love using with my kids. It is a brainstorming exercise that we do for about 15 mins prior to starting the essay. It not only works every time, but it also makes the essay writing process enjoyable- if not fun.

Very patient and knows how to connect with her student

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)

Learn English with a Certified English Teacher.

I am a native English speaker from the United States. I have over 30 years of experience as a tutor, 20 years of experience as a certified language teacher, over 15 years as a university instructor teaching language methodology courses, and 3 years as an online English teacher. I have experience teaching children and adults. I also have a university degree specializing in language education. I tailor my approach to each student based on his or her objectives. During the first lesson, I will discuss the student's primary focus and suggest a plan to master those goals. I am committed to helping my students reach their language goals. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, learning foreign languages, and traveling.

While attending Columbia College Chicago, they hired me as a Writing Consultant for 3 years. I enjoyed tutoring at their Writing Center providing help to individual Students with Free-writing, Brainstorming, various Essay styles, Thesis development, Word Usage, Grammar, Internet Research, Resume assistance and some ESL. Since then, I have written a self-published novel and a full-length screen play.

I believe that understanding and developing one's Writing Process is crucial for anyone at any age. It is remarkable how difficult it is for many people to write something as essential as a basic job resume. Reading Comprehension and Verbal Expression take time, but a well-developed Writing Process is often far more challenging. To acquire the knowledge and experience in order to "get your thoughts on paper" acquires specific techniques and an understanding of one's unique thought process. Thankfully, this is a very rewarding experience!
