About Talya

I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2015 with a double major in Physics and Astrophysics, and now I am doing computational physics at a research/lab facility. I also am an actor, and spend much of my free time studying Shakespeare and doing musical theater. As a tutor, I believe my diverse set of interests and knowledge allow me the flexibility to customize my teaching style to the needs of each student.

I find so much joy in helping students not only understand challenging concepts, but improve their self-confidence and mindset. I believe hard work, patience, and a healthy dose of enthusiasm can get you just about anywhere!

I have studied a great deal of mathematics (up to Single-Variable/Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra) through my Physics degree. I have also revisited core mathematical subjects numerous times helping my younger sister through high school. In addition, studying Physics and Astrophysics at UC Berkeley has put me in an exceptional place to tutor high school and first year college physics.

Let's raise those grades--I would be so delighted to help you achieve your goals!

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 2

I have a B.A. in Physics and Astrophysics from UC Berkeley, and have a lot of experience tutoring Algebra 2. I am also very patient, and eager to work with students to make learning easy and fun!

Excellent lesson!

Talya is not only smart and knowledgeable, but is also warm and kind, and my daughter really enjoyed working with her on pre-algebra and chemistry. Talya reviewed various math problems with my daughter and was patient with her explanations. She also successfully engaged my daughter in a conversation about chemistry. My daughter learned a lot and also had fun!
