About Tamar M.

Hi families!

A bit of information about myself: I have been tutoring for over ten years and am very familiar with the public and private school systems in Manhattan. I teach everything from Algebra II to American History, specializing in organizational and study skills.

I am a Columbia University graduate. Graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a 3.97 GPA. I currently tutor and also run a music education non-profit called Nvak Foundation.

I am meticulous, patient, and caring. I invest 100% of my energy in making sure that the kids that I take on are getting the individualized attention they need and that they are becoming more independent and more confident each session.

Please feel free to contact me via the site to let me know specifically what your child's needs are.

Warmly,
Tamar

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 :)

TAMAR IS A GEM

Tamar is a gem!

I have been working with her for the past year and she has helped me completely transform my academic situation.

I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I am not only doing my work, but she breaks down the material for me in such a way that it is easy to understand. Tamar puts in hours of her own time to create tests and study guides which has helped give me the extra advantage i need. I recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the best tutors and individuals ever.

Simply a Gem

Tamar is quite simply a gem. She has been working with me for the past year and has helped me completely transform my academic situation. I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence in working with me is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I not only do my work, but she breaks down the material in such a way that it caters to my unique learning needs. Tamar puts in hours of her own time, beyond active lesson time, to create tests and study guides which help give me the extra advantage I need. Tamar has been an absolute joy to work with and I would strongly recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the most impressive tutors and individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
