Caterina Villani, Architect & PhD Candidate - Italy
I contacted Tara while I was completing my PhD and starting my postdoctoral applications process. I was looking for a professional that could help me with advanced architectural English communication for my postdoctoral interviews. In this delicate process of transition from PhD to job applications, I found Tara to be an expert and a supporting and empowering guide. Her advice really helped me not only in the strategical preparation for interviews but also for the improvement of my application documents. Her advice regarding communication was applicable to a wide spectrum of situations, not only interviews. I was definitely more confident in my PhD oral defence. I would totally recommend her and I wish she was part of my university career development staff.

Tara is one of the most inspirational persons I have worked with since I started my Landscape Architecture profession in Australia 9 years ago. Throughout the years, she helped me to develop my skills as a proficient Landscape Architect, as well as to build confidence in working in a foreign country. She is someone with many talents including design (interior and exterior), watercolour painting and extensive knowledge of planting design. Moreover, her professional experience in both design and education sectors enable her to make the learning process very easy for foreign designers, who are seeking help in improving English. Therefore, I highly recommend Tara and her course, if any designers, architects or other design-related professionals want to polish their English skills.
Salomé Veriers, Engineer - France
Tara is a great teacher ! I was not very confident about my English level and Tara was able to give me the keys to be a confident speaker. She has great listening skills and she is very empathic. She teaches English through speaking about subjects that you are interested in. In this way learning English with Tara is never boring. You always can count on her! I recommend you to listen her podcast to understand how much she is dedicated to help people to make progress in English.

Tara's the best teacher I've ever met. She adapts the lessons to what you need very well and supports your confidence. I improved my English and I feel lucky to have met her and I highly recommend.
