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 just 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!

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, 2 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!

Kayla, 4 lessons with Tania

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Tania was very patient and accommodating with my son. He said that she has good technique and strategies to help solve problems. We hired her to help review with him before a test and he got a 95%. We will use her again!

Dana, 4 lessons with Tania

Very helpful, patient and knowledgeable tutor

Tania has helped me a lot! I am currently taking business calculus and her approach has really helped me. She helps students figure out what they're doing wrong and helps them figure out how to avoid "second-guessing" themselves. I tend to "second-guess" myself, but her methods have helped me feel more confident in my first answer that comes to mind! She also lets you know common mistakes that students make and helps you to recognize "red flags" which is super helpful so you can avoid them in the future! Highly recommend!!

Gina, 16 lessons with Tania

Incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and encouraging

Tania was very personable and encouraging and thoroughly explained problems and solutions to the problems to my daughter. She is in honors pre calc and she asked to reschedule with her for final exams because she is so comfortable with her and Tania is so knowledgeable.

Algebra 3

Tania was very helpful! She is very knowledgeable in concepts of Algebra. She was able to Quickly zone in on the areas that my son needed help with. She did a great job explaining it! Will definitely use her again.

Confidence, focus, efficiency, and improved performance

Tania has helped give our 13-year-old son confidence in completing his assignments by developing a clear-cut strategy that eliminates the initial confusion he experienced in homework and tests. Now that he has to spend less time and energy trying to remember and figure out how he is supposed to carry out his assignments and study, he is able to focus on simply completing each task at hand. She has been able to explain the teacher's expectations, and demonstrate how to present his work so that misunderstanding or misinterpreting an assignment or test is no longer an obstacle to his success.

Tad, 11 lessons with Tania

Excellent Math Tutor

Tania was very knowledgable and patient in helping me with Algebra 2. She helped me understand how to solve inequalities. I now feel better prepared for class and my upcoming test. Looking forward to our next tutoring session. I highly recommend her as a math tutor.
