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.

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.

She truly cares about getting through to the students

Excellent knowledge of subject, very patient, and motivates students to give it their best. She enjoys knowing when her students are improving. She communicates well and is accommodating in scheduling.

Excellent tutor

Mariana truly gives you a personalized tutor session. I was pleasantly surprised as to the time she took to prepare for my lesson. She is very kind and easy to communicate with.

Great Tutor!

Mariana is very patient and prepares her lesson targeted to each individual and his/her current syllabus topic. My son, who is public school and among the chaotic environment with 30+ students in class was not really understanding the foundations of Biology. With only two sessions so far, he has developed interest and confidence in learning Biology. Since Mariana has a science background, she is able to relate the class material to real life application. She prepares PowerPoint slides for the topic and expects student to discuss the material with her.

Responsible tutor

My son needs help for taking SAT 2 Chemistry test. Not only Mariana explains theories and concepts well, she also works with him organization skills. Her tutoring does not ends during tutor period. She encourages students to email her if there are any questions while studying.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Mariana is very smart and was patient with me. I go to CCSF and take Chemistry 32. Mariana was generous with her time and is a very kind person. I recommend her.

Excellent experience

Mariana is doing an exceptional job tutoring Kaycie in AP Chemistry. She is outstanding at assessing the learning style and patiently teaching difficult concepts. Highly recommend.

Kaycie, 3 lessons with Mariana

Thank goodness we found her!!

(Below is my initial review. My daughter has now had many sessions with Mariana and if I could give her 6 stars I would. She has a gentle humor that really puts my daughter at ease and makes this initially intimidating subject approachable.) My daughter was struggling with some issues in Chemistry and we found Mariana. She's met with her in person twice now and is really helping her get a solid understanding of the concepts that will help her move forward in the class. She encourages my daughter to send her updates on what they are covering in class so they can efficiently cover in during the lesson. She used to be a teacher so knows how to explain things and then also check for comprehension. My daughter, who is in a public school with class sizes of 35+, feels like she has someone she can go to reliably for help. Someone on her side!

Great tutor!!

My daughter had her first tutoring lesson with Mariana yesterday and she told me that she really learn a lot from her. Mariana is very patient and knowledgeable. She asked for my daughter's previous class work and notes prior to our meeting so she can be prepared. she is very organized. Her hours are very flexible. We are glad we found her!
