Tarasova is not a developmental coach. Skaters went (and still go) to her for the some reasons skaters now go to to Brian Orser: artistic polish, support, and political reasons. Yagudin got a solid foundation from Mishin, as did Hanyu from Nanami Abe, but there was still room for improvement on that foundation.
