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.
I have been coaching for 8 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.
Any cancellations made 24 hours from date of tuition will receive no refund. I only charge the travel fee if you are more than half an hours drive from me. If you are more than half an hours drive away I also don't provide the first lesson for free and there is an additional travel cost of £10. All payments must be made in advance. There is a 24 hour grace for invoice payments to be made.
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.

Perfect! Tara is really kind and inspiring...highly recommend!
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.
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.
Perfect! Tara is a lovely lady, always so positive, my daughter loves her weekly sessions. She has helped improve my daughters confidence in gymnastics and is always so enthusiastic. Tara is very passionate about her gymnastics and she has pushed my daughter to achieve new skills. I would highly recommend Tara
Perfect! Tara is an excellent gymnastics coach. Her response was quick and efficient and she has a lovely warm personality. My daughter already adores her after just a few sessions and she has helped her progress significantly very quickly. She brings plenty of equipment with her and is always well prepared and flexible.
Perfect! Excellent tutor. She is well organised and prepared session prior to session according to child needs. Her teaching method was excellent , enthusiastic and my son loves her method and never bored . She is a young professional gymnastic tutor. She brought material without any laziness. She was always on time and never rush to finish early! Awesome tutor !!
