About Tanya

I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science at UCLA and a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering. I was the bronze medal winner in the Michigan Math Competition. I was a successful Sr. Software Engineer with 19 years of experience in the high tech industry. I am currently working as a tutor.

I work with K-12 and college students. I tutor in the following subjects: Math, SAT Math, Chemistry (including honor and AP), SAT Chemistry, Problem Solving Skills, and Computer Science (computer languages, data structures, APCS) . Four of my students received perfect score, 800, in SAT Math Level II (the latest one in 01/2015). The other students received 780 and 770 in SAT Chemistry.

I can help to improve your knowledge as well as homework. I believe Math and Science is something to understand not just to memorize. I have helped many students to improve their grade at least one level up. Some has gone from D to B, or C to A I love to make the difference for my students and find the potentials in them.
