Dana has been tutoring our third grader in math twice a week for the last two months. We are very pleased with her techniques and have seen a huge improvement in our daughter's math confidence and ability to problem solve. Right away Dana recognized that our daughter is a kinetic learner and adapted her teaching techniques accordingly. Dana always shows up to each lesson with something new and exciting to work on which keeps our daughter's attention. She is very easily distracted and Dana is able to keep her on task in a firm and loving manner. Dana has showed us techniques to help our daughter learn that have enabled us to help her throughout the week and in between tutoring sessions. We plan on continuing to have Dana work with our daughter long-term.
My daughter sees Dana twice a week to help get her prepared for fourth grade. At first she hated the thought of having a tutor. Then came Dana! They work on reading & math. My daughter really likes all of the fun games. Now instead of crying that she doesn't want a tutor, she waits by the door for Dana to arrive! I highly recommend her!!
Dana is wonderful. She is a great tutor that cares about what she does. She is very knowledgeable and tailors her approach to my child. My child, who is often aloof when trying to learn, is fully engaged with Dana and actually looks forward to her visits. He asks me every day when his "teacher" is coming again. I am very happy with Dana's professionalism and care.
We have had both private tutors and specialty instructors for swimming etc and Dana is by far the best. I am a very critical CEO so that is really quite an unusual commentary for me. Dana is an A+ and I would recommend her to any family with a focus on their child and a solid american upbringing and education. Updated 02/28/2014 We have had many sessions and Dana is now communicating directly with my son's Transitional Kindergarten instructor. The instructor lets Dana know if there are issues and she addresses them directly with my son. Again, she is an A+. I have had not one single problem and her ability is amazing. THANK YOU DANA!
My son has difficulties wrapping his mind around some math concepts and I'm not good at math or very patient either. I decided to look for a tutor on wyzant. I asked my son today how things were going and he said "she helps me understand math so it makes sense to me." I'm very pleased with the progress he’s made. Thank you Ms. Dana!
Dana is very patient with my daughter. We also have seen results with my daughter at school. My daughter's teacher sent a note home and said that my daughter was participating better in class. That was very nice. Thank you, Dana.
Dana is a wonderful tutor for my sons. She is very kind and patient to teach my sons. My family loves her very much!! She is a part of my family. I really appreciate her effort and hard work to improve my son's academic ability. I would recommend her to all of you if you are looking for a nice tutor.
My 8 year old daughter loves Dana because she is really patient and makes learning a fun experience. Making it fun is part of what makes her a unique tutor. Dana is very good at what she does, which is hard to find nowadays. Thank you Dana for driving to Temecula to help our daughter!!!
Dana showed up one time and then by email said she could not make it anymore. She did not replace herself or give us the a phone call and talk in person. I find this unprofessional.
I'd like to mention that I stopped seeing Asia because the drive was too far and for that time period I had decided not to tutor Spanish which is what Asia needed assistance in. I gave Asia a two week notice, by email, which I thought was sufficient time to find another tutor. Her mother then left a demeaning, angry, unprofessional message on my home and cell phone which I chose not to respond to because from past experience I have learned not to involve myself with people that cannot control their anger. So I made the choice not to respond to the mother and let the two week notice stand.
Dana is working well with my student, she is teaching the concepts using interesting materials.
Dana has been working with my son in mathematics and I can say she is just awesome! Love having her, her teaching techniques are interactive and actually fun for my son. Thank you Dana!
