Tanya taught my daughter Calculus BC. We liked her approach to solving Maths problems. She was patient and very keen on the student understanding the solution to the problem.

My daughter had a great 1st session with Tanya today. She was patient, direct and efficient. Knowledgeable with Palo Alto area math curriculum was a plus. She seems to know how to teach students at various academic levels.

Tanya exceeded my expectations in our first session. She was well-prepared for our meeting which I appreciated. In addition to helping me solidify my knowledge, she showed me some tricks that will save me a lot of time while de-bugging Java programs. I definitely recommend her and I am looking forward to our next session!

My daughter had first lesson with Ms. Tanya. She helped her to understand basic concepts with in-depth explanation. I am happy that she has flexibility with time and full-time tutor for other subjects also.

Tanya has been working with my son for half a year. She is patient and explains math concepts so well. She is prompt when she sees behavior that needs correction. She communicate with parents and keep us informed. Our son has made significant progress thanks to Tanya!

Tanya has been working with our son (sophomore in the honors math lane at Paly) for about four months now. We cannot say enough about how she has helped him catch up in a class that he fell behind in and regain his confidence in math. She is always on time and is very personable and professional. Tanya understands the requirements and testing methods of the PAUSD math departments and will do review work with our son until she is positive that he not only understands it, but is able to solve problems in the efficient manner often required of them during exams.

Tanya was tutoring my daughter in Chemistry Honor for 6 months. With Tanya?s help, my daughter made significant progress; her grade went up by one full grade. Tanya is a very patient tutor. She explained the concepts to my daughter in a step-by-step fashion. She was also very attentive to where my daughter most needed help with and she catered to that need. She would also come very prepared. Before tests or exams, she would ask my daughter for the study guide so she could prepare the materials on her own (using her own time). She is also very flexible. She usually came once a week. But when there was an upcoming test or exam, she would volunteer to come for an extra day during that week. When there was a school break or there were no new materials for that week, she had no issue skipping that week. Because my daughter was involved in many school activities, the only time was Sunday and Tanya didn't mind. I really like Tanya. As a tutor to my daughter, she is patient, knowledgeable, and attentive, focusing on the area that my daughter needs help with most. To me, she is a partner who is very flexible and very easy to work with. I highly recommend Tanya for any Chemistry students who need support.

Tanya was a tremendous help to me in my Intro to Java programming class. She was very patient with me and took the time to explain things so I would understand them. One of the requirements for my class was a group project and Tanya came through for my whole group. I sent her a copy of my program requirements and she took the time, on her own initiative, to write the complete program so she could show me and the other members of my group what she had done and how and why it worked.
