  1. Merit Kirkpatrick

    Tamara Pool is an excellent tutor and a pleasure to work with (for parents and students alike). She has an excellent knowledge and understanding of the key facets of literature, analysis, writing, and revision, and she is able to make these concepts accessible to students. Her communication with both students and parents is solid and makes her very easy to work with.

    I have been impressed with the essays my children have conceptualized, outlined, written and revised in her classes, and under her instruction. She has been a great asset to my children’s literature and essay-writing development as middle and early high school students. They have grown in understanding and skill as a result of her work with them.

    She has also worked hard to be flexible and receptive to my desires and instructions as a parent. I’ve really appreciated her flexibility and diligence.
