I'm Tamara Luque Black, a Los Angeles-based writing and research consultant, academic advisor, and tutor. I have maintained a private consulting and tutoring practice for many years, meeting with clients independently as well as through three tutoring companies. Since 2004, I have taught a variety of undergraduate courses at UCLA, first as a graduate student and later as a lecturer. I earned my Ph.D. in Sociology from UCLA in 2008 and possess over a decade of experience teaching, advising, and mentoring.


I truly enjoy helping people meet their academic, research, and writing goals. It is fun and exhilarating to be a part of my clients' successes.

I specialize in working with undergraduate and graduate students, including ESL/international students at these levels. I also provide editing services for professionals and tutoring for high school students.
