Tahira

I graduated with a B.S. in Management Science and Engineering and a minor in International Relations from Stanford University in 2012. I am currently working in management consulting and looking for opportunities to tutor students in the NYC area. I enjoy helping students prepare for standardized tests, especially the Critical Reading and Writing sections of the SAT, as these were my favorite sections, which I also excelled at. My past tutoring experience includes tutoring Spanish during office hours offered through the Spanish Club at my high school and helping my little brother and cousins prepare for the PSAT and SAT. My mom is a teacher, so I strongly believe in a patient approach to teaching. Everyone is "smart," so performance on tests and in school is a function of will and hard work. With the right coaching and learning opportunity, every student can do well. I aim to be a good coach to students and guide them towards successful learning and test taking behaviors. I really want to instill an enthusiasm towards learning in the students I help! In my free time, I enjoy working out, reading, and exploring NYC. I am a big fan of Soul Cycle. On weekends, I can usually be found out brunching with friends!
