I currently work as a resource specialist at a middle school in South Los Angeles, but I have five years of experience working in high school as both an English teacher and a resource specialist....

I am Tanya P. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in English from Cal State Fullerton. I continued my education at Loyola Marymount University, where I earned my Master's degree in Urban Education with an emphasis on literacy and two teaching credentials: in English and Special Education. I currently work as a resource specialist at a middle school in South Los Angeles, but I have five years of experience working in high school as both an English teacher and a resource specialist. In my 6 years in education, I have learned many strategies that support student learning and that leverage students' unique learning styles and needs. My passion is in literacy, and I believe that all children deserve a quality education where they can read, write and think critically.

I have 5 years of experience tutoring students in small groups and 1:1. I find that the most important thing to learn when tutoring a student is to learn about his/her specific needs and motivations. When one knows the students and is invested in his/her success, the growth is exponential.

I have a cleared California English teaching credential and have taught high and middle school English. I also ave experience tutoring for the ACT English/ reading sections. My students grew exponentially in one year. By breaking down the standards for students, they are able to identify the question type and apply their knowledge of that specific skill to answer the question.

-Native Spanish speaker
-Took College level Spanish courses

I am so excited to get back into tutoring as I have found it to be one of the most fruitful experiences I have ever had! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
