All of Tanya’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Tanya’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ACT English

I have expertise in teaching all aspects of the English language, written and spoken English in particular. I can help with any language arts assignments or test preparations in this area.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching/tutoring English as a Second Language for more than 20 years. I began as a tutor for Literacy Volunteers of Chicago after completing their training course. I received certification through the English Language Institute in California. My undergraduate degree is in Communication Arts. I spent 5 years teaching English in Japan. Currently, I teach English to parents of Chicago Public School students part time. Teaching English is my true passion.

Grammar

I am a specialist in teaching grammar using techniques that make the fine details of the English language easier to understand. If you need help with a written assignment, if you want to improve your overall skills, or prepare for an exam, I am at your service.

Japanese

I began studying Japanese some years ago as I prepared to move to Japan to teach English. A combination of private tutoring, formal classes, and independent study helped me develop basic fluency. I lived in several major cities, which allowed me to engage all aspects of the culture. I loved my time there, and since returning home, I have taught basic Japanese (reading, writing, speaking) to family members and children in day camps and schools. The key to helping others learn this language is to make it a fun experience.

Literature

I love reading, analyzing, and writing about literature! There are so many aspects to studying this subject, and it can be confusing. I can assist you as you write a paper or try to get a handle on literary terminology. Hopefully, I can also help you enjoy the many genres of literature.

Reading

I specialize in helping teens and adults improve basic skills, which includes reading. I possess many years of training and experience. It is important to me to offer my expertise to those who want to further their education, even after long absences from formal classes.

Writing

As a writer, I am well trained in all aspects of the subject. I can help improve your skills in every area from grammar to essay writing and beyond. Working with teens and adults is my specialty.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
