« Perfect! Tara has been teaching Jorjah for a few months now and I am really impressed with her coaching skills. Her ability to make lessons fun whilst helping Jorjah achieve her goals is paramount to the enjoyment of the lesson. Tara's professionalism matched with her personality is a sure fire way to get the results!! Hanging out stretching for the splits was not always Jorjahs favourite until after a few sessions she managed to be in the splits with so much more control and calmness. Now the full split is 99% there and Jorjah is super proud of herself!! Tara is amazing and my daughter absolutely loves her and really looks forward to the sessions. Tara really listens to what we would like to focus on, is completely honest with where Jorjah is at which is really important for progress and then tailors the lessons accordingly. It is an absolute pleasure to have Tara in our home and I consider her a wonderful role model for my daughter, I would recommend Tara 100% we think she is amazing. »

Experienced gymnastics coach offering high level private coaching to keen gymnasts/beginners in and around both London and Brighton

Methodology

My teaching method is to build a strong rapport with my gymnast, in order to provide a calm relaxed environment to learn in. I then work on strength and flexibility which will assist the gymnasts muscle development. I then provide specific lesson plans based on the gymnasts age, ability, and desired focus. We always finish with a stretch to soothe any achy muscles after training.

Background

I have been coaching for 7 years so have a wealth of experience within the field of gymnastics. I've recently finished an English Literature degree at university, as I love reading and writing poetry. I am looking to open up my own club in the near future, but I do prefer 1:1 tuition with my clients as the speed they progress at is remarkable with this type of coaching.

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £200

Tara's CV

I’m an exceptional leader, talented in teaching as well as working alongside others. I’m a collaborative, passionate, motivated frontrunner in the field of gymnastics coaching, who has been officially commended by my colleagues for my ingenuity and undisputed high degree of professionalism. As well as building rapport with my clients, I am focused and effective at prioritising tasks, and I possess high level organisational and communication skills. I have a passion for writing,which I've done all my life, specialising in songwriting and poetry.
I am focused and passionate about working with people as I thoroughly enjoy doing so. I pay close attention to the task at hand and simultaneously maintain an awareness of my surroundings outside of the task. Coaching gymnastics has given me skills to work alongside people of all ages and therefore adapt my vocabulary to suit whoever I am speaking with. Working within a library and at Streets Ahead estate agents has given me the experience of talking to people both over the phone and in person, making sure I portray myself as engaging and captivating in order to keep customers interest. Working in the library enabled me to put my passion of reading and writing into practice, by creating promotional posters with intriguing headlines for the organisation.

Spectrum Gymnastics Academy, Here I:
-Worked directly with gymnasts to motivate and train them to a competitive standard Built a strong rapport with gymnasts and parents
-Effectively taught a range of specific skills in a clear, safe manner
-Organised and directed coaches working within the club and kept to a strict time management plan that I implemented to allow equal equipment rotations.

Perfect! Tara has been teaching gymnastics to my daughters (7 years old and 3 years old) for last 5 months . My daughters thoroughly enjoy their lessons with her and really look forward for their gymnastics class every week. Tara has always been very patient, friendly, flexible and most importantly organised and punctual. She is a very experienced teacher with years of knowledge . I am glad we found her and we highly recommend her as a gymnastics coach/tutor.

Perfect! We have been with Tara for months - she is a FANTASTIC tutor and could not be more pleased with the excellent value for the quality of instruction. My daughter is making amazing progress in her gymnastics as Tara has created an individualised training plan just for her. Tara is knowledgable, organised, extremely professional and genuinely enjoys coaching and kids.

Tara is able to bring the gymnastics apparatus to our home and train my daughter in our garden (and reception when the weather does not cooperate). This is a fantastic alternative to shlepping the kids to an over-subscribed gymnastics club - instead she gets one on one instruction in our home.
