About Mariana

I am a California Credentialed Science/Chemistry/Biology/Algebra teacher. I believe literacy across content areas is the key to success for any student. As a scientist and science teacher, my goal is to help students understand how important math and science is in their everyday lives and how math and science literacy empowers them to become more capable twenty-first century citizens.

Before I started teaching I worked as a scientist in diagnostic diseases and drug discovery research for 20 years. During my research activities, I had the opportunity to train high school interns who were enrolled in biotech program at high schools like Lowell, Carlmont, Lincoln, etc. Training these young interns inspired me to become a science teacher. I am proud to say that some of my interns chose biology and chemistry as majors in college.

Many students find difficult to read science texts and understand scientific concepts. I think the specialized language of the science textbooks, fast-paced classes, and a lack of support for students after class makes science classes intimidating to students.
As a tutor, I am dedicated to help my students excel in their science/chemistry/biology/algebra classes and SAT exams, and build their foundation needed to become independent learners in college. Teaching study skills, organization skills, and critical thinking skills is my specialty. When is needed, I prepare scaffolding lessons in order to make sure my students go prepared to their class and meet to requirements to get maximum scores.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

Learning Algebra 1 in 8th grade helps a student to get a strong foundation in math in critical thinking skills for high school.

Organic Chemistry

I got my MS in a program called "Technology of Organic Chemistry" I studied Organic Chemistry and its application in different fields like drugs, dyes, soap and detergents, polymers, etc. I am confident that I can answer the requirements for Organic Chemistry tutoring, from the chemical bonds and structures of the organic compounds, to all the physical and chemical proprieties of alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, amines, amides, and other organic substances.

Physical Science

I am a certified science teacher with teaching experience in school and privately. My previous experience as a scientist makes me able to teach science that is easy to understand.

Great tutor!

My daughter really enjoyed Chemistry tutoring sessions with Mariana. Mariana is well organized, thorough and really cares about students understanding the material. My daughter's grade improved after only a few sessions. It was a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend her!
