About Tania

Hello! I graduated with top honors with a B.A. in Political Science and minors in European History and Italian from the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University.

As a political science and history student in college, I have extensive experience reading, writing, and analyzing material in the social sciences and humanities, including familiarity with MLA, APA, and AP formatting styles. This background also gives me familiarity with a variety of disciplines at the collegiate level, enabling me to edit essays and research papers about subjects including literature, philosophy, law, sociology, and history, and to help students understand difficult concepts within those fields.

I earned top scores in AP English Language, AP English Literature in high school, and AP American Government in high school and scored over 700 on the reading and writing portions of the SAT. I am experienced and available tutoring these subjects and related ones (e.g. AP European History).

I also have experience tutoring elementary- and middle school-age students in language arts, social studies, and similar subjects. I am able to adjust my teaching methods so that I tutor effectively and am able to relate to students of all ages and backgrounds without being overly casual or academic. Particularly with young students, I always strive to make learning fun so that they feel like they are playing a game rather than doing work.

When tutoring at any grade level, I emphasize helping my students understand core concepts rather than simply "feeding" them the right answers. My ultimate goal when tutoring is to prepare my students well enough that they can be successful in school without my help.

In addition to providing teaching-based tutoring services, I am also available to provide editing and proofreading services for essays, college admissions materials, and research papers. As the former editor for my high school and college magazines, I am a fast proofreader with a refined sense for improving the grammar and clarity in essays, and for emphasizing concise, sophisticated writing.

I am confident that if you choose me as your tutor -- whether for in-person or online sessions -- you will receive the highest quality tutoring available for a bargain price. I look forward to working with you!

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.

Political Science

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University. My cumulative GPA was 3.95, meaning I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I also completed a certificate in International Relations.

Tania is one of the best English (Writing/Reading) tutors. She is always on time and very flexible with my schedule as well. She helped me pass my VCLA Test and gave me good feedback regarding my essays. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent tutor.
