About Tanya

I am a certified teacher, grades 1-12, and have a Masters Degree in Counseling and Guidance. Both my undergraduate degree and graduate degree are from Temple University. I have more than thirty years teaching experience, at both the Elementary level and Community College level, where I taught various Psychology courses including, but not limited to, Introduction to Psychology and Abnormal Psychology.In addition I have more than five years experience as a tutor in the areas of basic reading, reading, basic math, and writing skills.I was nominated as the Teacher of the Year at Delaware Community College- the first ever adjunct instructor to be so nominated. On two consecutive years my Elementary classes received the Video of the Year Award in the areas of History and Art. I have also sponsored the Student Council at one of my schools.

My teaching style might best be described as hands-on and compassionate towards the needs of the students I tutor. I want to take each student from where he/she is to where he/she has the potential to be.
