About Me

Hello friends! :) My name is Tara and I am from New York. I speak English and Spanish and I have been a language instructor for 6 years in the US, Spain, and China. I have a Masters degree from Columbia University in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I can help you reach fluency quickly for daily conversation, work presentations, or whatever else you need!

I have taught English in many cities across the US as well as in China and Spain (Salamanca y Madrid). I was born and raised in the USA, but my family is from India. I love traveling and meeting people from all over the globe and listening to them tell stories in their native languages. I believe learning languages is the best way to expand our knowledge and get in sync with our big, beautiful world.
