About Tonya

I was in the insurance industry for 20+ years and I've always had a desire to teach. I retired from the insurance industry and followed my dreams to become a teacher. I just graduated from Shippensburg University, in May 2015, with a Bachelor's of Science in Education with a concentration in Math and Science. Returning to college as a non-traditional student, I know that hard work and dedication to learning can pay off and that is why I'm excited to help students realize their own potential and see their grades and test scores improve.

One of my goals for each session is to keep the student challenged and engaged, but not overwhelmed. I'm a firm believer that learning takes place when you relate the subject matter to something the student is interested in. With that being said, prior to our meeting I like to have an interview to learn a little about my student.

I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals!


I understand the struggle in Math - I was not always good with Math and that is why I get so excited to help students with Math. There are many different ways to learn Math and I like to provide different options for my students. Let's face it we all do not think the same, so we all do not learn the same.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a recent Shippensburg University graduate with a Bachelor's of Science in Education. During my college career, I volunteered my time to the elementary school on campus to assist elementary students in reading and math. While I was student teaching, I worked one-on-one with several students and assisted them with their school work.

Very quick to see areas needed to concentrate on. — Tonya and Beth hit it off immediately, and Tonya understood some of Beth's short comings. Looks like she will be able to help through her Algebra course. ...
