About Tania


Bio

I have a BA in Economics and a Master's in Mathematics Education. I have taught high school, 2-year college, private 4-year and 4-year research university mathematics. I love teaching mathematics but get the greatest reward from the one-on-one work I do with my tutoring students. I began tutoring when I was in graduate school and have continued nonstop since then.

I have a BA in Economics and a Master's in Mathematics Education. I have taught high school, 2-year college, private 4-year and 4-year research university mathematics. I love teaching mathematics but get the greatest reward from the one-on-one work I do with my tutoring students. I began tutoring when I was in graduate school and have continued nonstop since then.

I have 25+ years of teaching college mathematics and college, K-12, and SAT/ACT math tutoring. I specialized in Middle school - AP Calculus. I have been grading the AP Calculus exam for over 20 years. I love to help students "own" the math not just rent it. I have developed many strategies to help master mathematics, prepare for test and build confidence in their math ability. I am aware that not all students will "love" math but I hope to help them see the beauty of math and respect it's importance.

I am a single mom to two boys (11 and 15). They have benefited from hearing me tutor students their entire lives. They often quote some of the corny things I use to help students understand the math. I am shocked because I never knew they were really paying attention to my sessions.

I tutor middle school math, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Pre-calculus, Algebra 3, AP Calculus, SAT math (and subject test), ACT math, Finite Math, College Algebra, and Business Calculus. In my 25+ years I have found that the most important part of tutoring is the develop a rapport with the students that will help build their confidence in their ability to be successful in mathematics. So many students second guess themselves and have never been taught strategies to check their work (what I refer to as "warm fuzzies" and "red flags"). I always say that my job as a tutor is to work myself out of a job! If you don't need me anymore, I have done my job!

I am available for online and in-person sessions. I look forward to working with you!

Best tutor!

My 9th graders confidence in math has soared since starting algebra 2 sessions with Tania. We have used several tutors over the last 10 years between my children and Tania is the best. She explains things in a way that just makes sense and sticks. After every session, my daughter says “it was great. She’s soooo good!”

Naureen , 10 lessons with Tania

Super patient, clear, and enthusiastic!

Tania was amazing! She tutored me through my college-level Calculus I class this summer, and she was beyond helpful! I just took my final exam and remembered every trick/tip she taught me during our sessions. Will definitely come back to her when I take Calculus II!

Annie, 16 lessons with Tania

Working with Tania has been nothing but a positive experience!

By far, Tania stands as one of the best tutors I have worked with on Wyzant! Tania is very patient and encouraging. She manages to create a safe space within the session room that encourages you to ask questions and grow beyond your mistakes. Not only that, but she explains and breaks down daunting concepts in such a skillful way. Working with Tania has been nothing but a positive, enriching experience!

Nicole, 50 lessons with Tania

Perfect!

She helped my daughter so much with Algebra 2 and gave her lots of confidence as she headed into her test this week. :) She is warm, fun, and a great teacher. My daughter enjoyed her!

Beth, 3 lessons with Tania

Great Geometry Tutor

My daughter has been struggling with geometry in the virtual learning environment. Tania has really helped her grasp the concepts and has also given her more confidence. We are very happy!

Julie, 6 lessons with Tania

Great tutor!!

We booked our first tutoring session with Tania. We've already asked her for about 10 more! My son needed help with Finite Math, for which it is not easy to find a knowledgeable and friendly tutor. Well, we found Tania and are quite pleased.

Marc, 5 lessons with Tania

Extremely knowledgable and truly caring tutor

Tania tutored me in my Business Calculus course and not only helped me get through my assignments but also gain a better grasp on the concepts and material in my class. On top of that, she is super friendly and you can tell that she genuinely cares about connecting personally with her students. Tania is able to build a great relationship with her students and knows how to best teach to their needs. She would be my first recommendation to anybody that needs a math tutor

Theo, 17 lessons with Tania

Wonderful and patient teacher

Tania is a fantastic tutor that helped me understand algebra. Math has never been my strongest submit and I made that perfectly clear to Tania. She was patient and understanding that I am not the traditional student. I am looking forward to working with her in the future.

Jaquita, 1 lesson with Tania

Precalculus

Excellent! Really knew trigonometry and Precalculus. Very nice, extremely helpful. Great with word problems as well. Will definitely use Tania for tutoring again!

Kendra, 16 lessons with Tania

Awesome tutor

Was really nervous about online tutoring because I’m used to having someone beside me but Tania was awesome! I’ll definitely be booking lessons with her every week!
