About Tanaya

My journey into education began in 2013 with Teach for America (TFA), a program that is committed to closing the achievement gap found within the American school system. Through TFA, I taught 7th and 8th grade science for 2 years in Phoenix while pursuing my Masters in Education at Arizona State University.
Since then I have moved back to the Cedar Rapids area where I have tutored high school students in algebra and study skills, and elementary aged students in reading, writing and math.

As a tutor I like to incorporate activities that engage multiple learning styles. I carefully track progress, provide a sheet of big ideas with each lesson, and provide time for the student to reflect on goals and progress.

I am generally available 7 days a week from 8am - 10pm. I live in Cedar Rapids and will meet clients that live within a 30 mile radius.

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.

Biology

At Macalester College in Saint Paul, MN I majored in biology with an emphasis in biochemistry. From there I taught 7th and 8th grade science in Phoenix, AZ for two years. I enjoy teaching inquiry based science lessons as these are engaging for students and provide the opportunity for critical thinking.

Elementary Math

I have experience tutoring elementary students with IEPs in reading and math. I use hands on strategies, games and progress monitoring that is student led so students have ownership over their learning. I also provide parents and teachers with an update of concepts covered and homework after each session.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience tutoring beginner and advanced ESL students from all over the world through Kirkwood's ESL program for adults. I am certified in TEFL instruction through the International TEFL Academy.
