## We're so glad we found her!

Christine, 52 lessons with TanyaOur 11th grade student was having a hard time transitioning to a new school and a new town, and some of her grades reflected this, including Chemistry. We realized it was necessary to find a tutor immediately as there were tests coming up and homework due and there was no time to mess around trying to muddle through the text book and "negotiate" due dates with the teacher. It was especially not helpful to punish our student or stress her out more by showing our disappointment and threatening...

My background is in structural engineering. I completed my master's degree in engineering from Texas A&M in December 2010, and I worked in industry from January 2010 to March 2015, working as an engineer by day and moonlighting as a tutor by night.

From 2015 to 2018 I worked as an engineering lecturer with the University of Texas at Tyler and Houston Community College. I taught various engineering courses from the freshman to senior level. In May 2018, I completed a Masters in Education at...

Tanya has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **3 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Solid

Tayna, was very helpful and patient with my kiddo. She spent some extra time with her to make sure she understood the material which was helpful as I couldn't make the intertoobs work. Funny and personable with a solid sound system. Cheers

Indra, 12 lessons with Tanya

## Excellent tutor

Tanya does an excellent job working with my son on high school Chemistry. She knows her topic, how to teach it and is well prepared. Both student and parent are pleased. Couldn't be happier!

Mike, 2 lessons with Tanya

## Knowledgeable and good natured flexible minded tutor

Chemistry session. In this first session, Tanya reviewed AP chemistry topics: electron configuration, molecular polarity, formal charge. It was a good productive session for my daughter.

Aruna, 1 lesson with Tanya

## Great to teach complications by demonstrating simply for clear understanding

My daughter had a Precalculus session today. In this session, continued study or basic precalculus topics. In particular, looked at rational functions and their graphs, including finding asymptotes, intercepts, and a variety of other properties. Tanya made a great lesson to let my daughter understood quite well.

Takeo, 46 lessons with Tanya

## Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

We are so glad we found Tanya! She has an in-depth background on a number of technical subjects from math to chemistry to physics. She is very polite, kind, and prompt!

Mary, 3 lessons with Tanya

## 100% Satisfied

Tanya was so good to my son. He understood everything she taught today's lesson. She recommended a book for him to study for next grade-8th. I and my son are 100% satisfied. Thank you Tanya.

Chong, 1 lesson with Tanya

## Very helpful, supportive and competent tutor

My daughter asked to go to tutoring for chemistry but didn't expect it to be a great experience. She was pleasantly surprised and told me the time passed quickly. She didn't have a lot of time and got a much better understanding that in class. I would definitely recommend Tanya as a tutor. She was very flexible and got good results. We will use her again to tutor in Algebra 2.

Karen, 13 lessons with Tanya

## Knowledgeable and Patient

She helped my sister gain a clear view of how to approach chemistry as well as go in detail with practice problems.

RAQUEL, 1 lesson with Tanya

## Awesome!

She is great and a lot of background experience, she is very nice and makes learning fun! She doesn't rush you or judge you if you don't know the material. Tanya is very helpful!
