Tanya’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
Algebra 1
I offer tutoring in every math class from pre-algebra through differential equations. I have tutored students in mathematics ranging in ages from middle school to university. To me, simple algebra is beyond trivial. I not only have a mastery of the material, but experience in explaining it to students with a variety of learning styles.
Algebra 2
Algebra I and II are trivial to me. I have taken and tutored a great many mathematics courses, and algebra II is one of the simpler courses that I can tutor.
American History
While the technical subjects are my greatest strength and specialty, I can also offer tutoring in the social sciences. In high school, I took AP American History and earned a 5 on the AP exam.
Astronomy
Astronomy and cosmology are two of the subjects closest to my heart. Carl Sagan is my hero. Whether you need to grasp stellar nucleosynthesis or just what the hell the Big Bang is, I can help you learn about the grand nature of the cosmos.
Calculus
I have studied calculus, tutored calculus, and applied it to real-world design problems. I took AP Calculus AB and BC in high school, and scored fives on both exams. At university, I took Calculus III, differential equations, and numerous upper level engineering courses that involved applying basic calculus.
Chemistry
Chemistry is one of my strongest subjects. I have tutored numerous students at high school, community college, and university level chemistry. Back in high school, I took AP Chemistry and scored a 5 on the AP exam. As part of my engineering education, I gained further mastery of this material and the mathematics behind it.
Civil Engineering
I have a bachelors and a masters degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M, the school that educates the majority of the civil engineers in the state of Texas. I'm a licensed EIT in the state and current work as a structural engineer.
Elementary Science
I have an immensely broad background in and knowledge of the elementary sciences. From geology to meteorology, geology, physics, biology, chemistry, cosmology, etc. I have a grasp of the basics of most all elementary sciences.
European History
While the technical subjects are my greatest strength and specialty, I can also offer tutoring in the social sciences. In high school, I took AP European History and earned a 5 on the AP exam.
Finite Math
Finite math covers an assortment of topics including solving systems of equations through matrices, linear programming and optimization, probability, and basic statistics. As part of my engineering education and background, I have a solid knowledge and experience with each of these subjects. I have tutored many students in these subjects and their applications. As such, I am well qualified to tutor any student struggling with a finite mathematics course.
Geometry
Geometry comes naturally to me. I'm a classically trained civil engineer. From the balance of forces to surveying, so much of what I do in my career involves applied geometry. I have experience tutoring students in geometry and can help any student in this subject.
Physical Science
I have an immensely broad background in and knowledge of the physical sciences. From geology to meteorology, geology, physics, biology, chemistry, cosmology, etc. I have a grasp of the basics of most all physical sciences.
Physics
I offer tutoring in middle school through university level physics courses. I am an engineer. My field is essentially applied physics. Whether the course involves classical Newtonian, electromagnetism, or special relativity, I have no difficulty guiding a student through these physics courses. In high school, I took AP Physics and earned a 5 on the test.
Prealgebra
This is the first named mathematics course that most students take. I have tutored young students in math such as this and will no difficulty doing it again.
TAKS
TAKS is a standardized test offered to students in Texas. I've helped numerous students with this before, just usually working with the test requirements and giving lessons on material accordingly. The material is the same as the standard high school math and other courses I tutor regularly.
Trigonometry
This is another math course that I am very experienced with, through my education, through tutoring, and through direct professional application.
World History
While the technical subjects are my greatest strength and specialty, I can also offer tutoring in the social sciences. In high school, I took AP World History and earned a 5 on the AP exam.
