About Tanya

I worked for the New York City Board of Education as a English Language Arts Teacher and Librarian for almost four years. I taught Reading, Writing and English Language Arts to grades kindergarten through six. I also instructed students on basic library skills and the organization of the library. I also have tutored students in reading and writing.

In my experience, a successful tutoring relationship is one that consists of trust and encouragement. It is my job to make students feel safe and confident as they face their academic challenges. I am very patient and understand how it feels to require extra help with a subject that seemingly appears so easy for everyone else.

I get equally excited when a student finally understands a concept or masters a skill. I want them to exceed and to reach their highest potential. I am committed to their success.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

As an elementary educator, I consistently worked to achieve excellent student results. Because each student had a certain mix of traits, strengths and learning challenges, I had to apply differing proportions of the curriculum to the children. Each day, as a teacher, I always maintained structured lesson plans that met the state standards.

During my elementary teaching experience, I taught Math, English/Spelling, Science, and Social-Studies. In order to give my students a greater understanding of the curriculum, I incorporated visuals into my daily lessons. For example, in math class, I did a lesson on shapes. When we studied circles, I bought an unsliced pizza and showed them that the pizza is a circle. Then when I cut the pizza, I showed them that the slices of pizza were shaped like triangles. In addition, after the completion of an author study, each child would write a letter to the author and share their likes or dislikes about the book; and/or questions about the characters in the book. We also sometimes created mini plays from the characters of the book.

During my tenure as a teacher, I maintained positive relationships with parents, fellow teachers and office staff. Teaching has always been more than just a source of employment, it is my passion. My deepest focus is encouraging students so that they can be successful regardless of their circumstances.

Voice (Music)

I received my Master's degree in Vocal Performance in 2004 from New York University. I've been teaching private voice to students of all ages for the last seven years. I am very experienced. I instill the execution of proper breath support and breath control. I also teach proper vocalises to strengthen and warm-up the voice.

So glad that we found Tanya — From the onset of our first encounter, Tanya has been professional and thoughtful.

Over the course of only one month we have seen great improvement in our child's reading and confidence. Tanya works individually with our child and checks in with us frequently to keep us informed as to conc ...
