I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science from UCLA and a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering from University of Michigan. 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 has been very successful working 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) . Many of my students received perfect score, 800, in SAT Math Level II, and 35/36 in ACT. Other students received 770 to 790 in SAT Chemistry.

I can help to improve students' knowledge as well as homework. I believe Math and Science is something to understand not to memorize. Almost all students improved at least one level grade. Some has gone from D to B, or C to A on a regular basis. Three students went from F to A within three months. A couple students said they have never gotten A's until they worked with me. I love to make the difference for my students and find the potentials in them.

Knowledgeable tutor

Tanya taught my daughter Calculus BC. We liked her approach to solving Maths problems. She was patient and very keen on the student understanding the solution to the problem.

Knowledgeable tutor in Algebra 2

My daughter had a great 1st session with Tanya today. She was patient, direct and efficient. Knowledgeable with Palo Alto area math curriculum was a plus. She seems to know how to teach students at various academic levels.

Great tutor!

Tanya exceeded my expectations in our first session. She was well-prepared for our meeting which I appreciated. In addition to helping me solidify my knowledge, she showed me some tricks that will save me a lot of time while de-bugging Java programs. I definitely recommend her and I am looking forward to our next session!

An Exceptional Tutor!

Tanya was tutoring my daughter in Chemistry Honor for 6 months. With Tanya’s help, my daughter made significant progress; her grade went up by one full grade. Tanya is a very patient tutor. She explained the concepts to my daughter in a step-by-step fashion. She was also very attentive to where my daughter most needed help with and she catered to that need. She would also come very prepared. Before tests or exams, she would ask my daughter for the study guide so she could prepare the materials on her own (using her own time). She is also very flexible. She usually came once a week. But when there was an upcoming test or exam, she would volunteer to come for an extra day during that week. When there was a school break or there were no new materials for that week, she had no issue skipping that week. Because my daughter was involved in many school activities, the only time was Sunday and Tanya didn't mind. I really like Tanya. As a tutor to my daughter, she is patient, knowledgeable, and attentive, focusing on the area that my daughter needs help with most. To me, she is a partner who is very flexible and very easy to work with. I highly recommend Tanya for any Chemistry students who need support.

Goes the extra mile for her students

Tanya was a tremendous help to me in my Intro to Java programming class. She was very patient with me and took the time to explain things so I would understand them. One of the requirements for my class was a group project and Tanya came through for my whole group. I sent her a copy of my program requirements and she took the time, on her own initiative, to write the complete program so she could show me and the other members of my group what she had done and how and why it worked.
