About Mariana

I am a very passionate individual about Mathematics and truly believe Mathematics represents "THE QUEEN" of all the science. It is a great way to represent many things in real life and it is a universal language..I consider math as a way of thinking, and it’s important to see how that thinking developed rather than only showing the result.

I graduated from Edinboro University of PA with a dual degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I performed 5 consecutive semesters as a tutor of math for students with disabilities in all areas of mathematics. I was recognized as having a great ability to explain math concepts in ways that students can understand and relate to the concepts, and I have the patience to revisit and practice topics.

I believe it is important to place priority on repairing gaps in learning -- not only on helping to do the homework for that day. If you are able to solve an exercise in mathematics, you should be able to solve any daily issues.

Amazing tutor!

I wish I would have found Mariana years ago. She is positive, approachable and made us feel at ease immediately. Mariana is a bright lady with a deep knowledge of math. She quickly assessed my daughter's math aptitude and gave her the confidence to improve. I highly recommend Mariana for all skill levels.
