Hi! I’m Tanya! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game, LLC. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in health from University of Texas – San Antonio and a Master of Education in clinical counseling from Texas Southern University. I have had several years’ experience working with students as a program manager at Boys and Girls Club in Austin, TX. I also have taught math, health and college seminar of YES Prep Public School and as a college counselor at KIPP Public Schools. I am currently a STEM Career Counselor at the University of Houston. As a coach with Staying Ahead of the Game, I enjoy being able to work with students and helping them to succeed. I enjoy working one on one with students, after teaching in the classroom for the past 4 years I have first-hand been able to see that many student’s need that one on one interaction to augment.
