I taught at schools and tutored for over 30 years and I derive immense satisfaction when my students begin to understand new concepts.
I specialize in teaching Math and English. I communicate well with students, and they enjoy my lighthearted approach as they begin to better appreciate some of the core concepts. I focus on helping my students understand basic principles so that they can then build on them. A firm foundation is a basis for future success.
I taught at Elementary and Middle school, and was head of Math for Grade 7, setting course work and examination papers for all the classes. I also taught English and Math at High School level and remain a part-time substitute teacher at the Francis Parker School and San Diego Jewish Academy.
I understand that each student is different. I therefore adjust my approach to work with their relative strengths in solving their difficulties.
I prefer to tutor students at Elementary and Middle School level, helping them build their future academic success based on solid learning skills. There is tremendous satisfaction in seeing a student's grades improve along with an increased willingness to learn and achieve.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping your child achieve his or her goal. There is no time like the present. I taught at schools and tutored for over 30 years and I derive immense satisfaction when my students begin to understand new concepts.

Dale has a very relaxed and fun style of teaching which is just what my son needs to feel more confident with his math skills.
I came to Dale in need of tutoring for my boys. They have struggled tremendously with math. My boys confidence and self esteem was close to non existent. After a few lessons with Dale my oldest son passed his first math test since the school year began in August with an 86%! Previous to this score his highest math score was 44%. My younger son hasn't taken a math test yet but has acknowledged he feels more confident. Dale is patient, understanding and thorough.
Dale is a very Proficient tutor. What makes her excellent is that she can figure out the problems and solve it. My children have improved a lot.
Ms. Dale is a great tutor. She is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. My daughter enjoys working with Ms. Dale and looks forward to their study sessions. We are very fortunate to have her as my daughter's tutor.
Dale is a patient and encouraging tutor who manages to keep my daughter engaged throughout the entire lesson. She had made learning math fun and my daughter actually looks forward to her weekly tutoring secession. She has given my daughter the confidence to take on new challenges and and I can definitely see improvements in her school work.
She was an elementary school teacher. She knows what the student needs to study and she has plans for the student. That means she is prepared. She is experienced, and she knows how to handle students and where the student should go in the study. She is organized and confident. She talks slowly and that helps my kids, who are from another country, to understand. I am happy to have her as my kids' English teacher.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
