"We're so glad we found her!"
Christine from Houston, TX on 11/18/13
Our 11th grade student was having a hard time transitioning to a new school and a new town, and some of her grades reflected this, including Chemistry. We realized it was necessary to find a tutor immediately as there were tests coming up and homework due and there was no time to mess around trying to muddle through the text book and "negotiate" due dates with the teacher. It was especially not helpful to punish our student or stress her out more by showing our disappointment and threatening to take away privileges. She needed REAL help. I did my research, but promptly settled on WyzAnt and Tanya. I was nervous because we didn't have any time to spare and a bad tutor would have been a waste of time, not to mention, money. Tanya showed up on time, quickly introduced herself, sat down with our student at the table and got to work. To put things into perspective, our daughter got a 33 on the first test and was so stressed out it was frightening. Tanya worked with her one night, the next day our daughter took her second test. I was hoping for passing. She got an 81. It was astonishing. Not only did our daughter make a decent grade on this next test, she's UNDERSTANDING the material, which helps her for a lifetime! Am I singing Tanya's praises? Yes, yes I am. I am a mother who hates the stress our kids are under, and a mother who is enormously grateful when a solution is found.
"Very Patient and Pleasant"

My daughter is very comfortable with Tanya. She also feels she is getting the help she needs for her GED test. Tanya is always easy to reach also.
"Great Tutor and Very Flexible"
Andrew from Houston, TX on 7/3/14
Tanya has been tutoring me the past couple of months through a summer College Algebra class. I cannot say enough good things about her. She knew the material off the top of her head and did not require any "review", which said a lot to me. She is extremely smart, but had a good way of explaining things so that I could grasp the material. She was very accommodating to my needs - meeting multiple times a week in the evenings and on weekends. I have absolutely no problem giving her the highest recommendation possible for ANY subject she feels qualified to tutor.
"Smart & Awesome Communication Skills"
Wendy from Houston, TX on 5/30/14
Tanya has quickly been able to get my son up to speed in Chemistry. I recommend her. She is a good communicator and understands her subjects. My son told me he learned more from her in one hour than he did the entire year in class.
5/30/14 Post Final Update: My son just took his final and made a 79 which is downright amazing. In 3 weeks time Tanya got him from an F average to an overall average of a C in the class. She is focused, responsive, and pushed him to do what he needed to do to pass the class for the year! Wish I could clone her!
"Best tutor ever"
Susan from Richmond, TX on 5/13/14
Tanya is very detailed, intelligent, and able to relate and connect on a student's level. My daughter was able to bring her GPA up ten points. I highly recommend this wonderful on-time tutor to anyone frantic about pre calc.
"Really happy I found her!"

My grades have improved and I feel more confident since I have been working with Tanya. I have maintained a solid "A". Thanks!
Cathy from Houston, TX on 11/1/13
My son said she explained math to him where it made complete sense in an easy, understandable way. He thought she was an excellent tutor and we will definitely use her again and recommend her to others!!!! Thanks Tanya for helping him make a great grade on his test!

Ms. L is great, she really challenges the student while providing a down to earth approach to explain difficult topics.
"Fantastic Teaching Methods"
James from Houston, TX on 9/19/13
Super cordial and easygoing the entire lesson which allowed me to easily ask my questions! Had all my current problems solved and under control in just 1 lesson. Definitely recommend Tanya for any high school student struggling in physics!
Rhonda from Houston, TX on 9/12/13
Tanya helped my HS Senior tremendously in Chemistry. She was able to explain concepts in a language that he could understand.I highly recommend her tutoring services.
Conrad from Houston, TX on 9/10/13
Tanya is a very nice person and helped me with AP Physics. She is very knowledgeable and make the subject fun. Always on time and very easy to get touch with. I will highly recommend her.
"Nice tutor who loves a challenge"
Karen from Houston, TX on 9/10/13
Tanya has helped me on a regular basis in Physics 1. She knows a lot about the subject and likes to explain more than I technically am required to know just to make sure that I understand why we're doing what we are doing. My physics is not calculus based, but listening to her explain the basics about how calculus affects what we're working on helps my understanding a lot. She has been patient with me even when I don't understand quickly what she is explaining to me. Some of the problems in my textbook, especially the trick questions, have taken some time and thought to work through. Once we figure out what the question is asking for, if I still don't comprehend it she guides me through it by making me think about it instead of just giving me the right answer.
"Off to a great start"
Socorro from Houston, TX on 2/28/13
We (my daughter and I) met with Tanya for the first time on 02/20/2013. The first session focused on AP European History. I felt like Tanya quickly zeroed in on the reason my daughter is doing poorly - she is not reading the book, nor taking good notes. When my daughter starting asking about the French Revolution, Tanya went into a detailed explanation of WHY the French Revolution was so important. Even I learned a thing or two! I was very impressed. I certainly hope my daughter pays attention and puts Tanya's tips and guidance to good use.
Tanya will also be tutoring my daughter on AP Statistics.
