It is a run-on.  The first sentence ends at class.

 

"Tasha, my next door neighbor, loves solving Algebra problems in class.  She's always the first to finish."

I think you sentence raises the ambiguity of whether or not Tasha likes to solve algebra problems in general or in class. I would suggest using a semicolon, but you can use a full stop instead of a semicolon. The two alternatives I would propose are:

  • Tasha, my next door neighbor, loves solving Algebra problems; she's always the first to finish in class.

Or

  • Tasha, my next door neighbor, loves solving Algebra problems in class; she's always the first to finish.
