About Danita


Bio

As a former A.P. Chemistry teacher in Kentucky, with excellent success rate on the AP Chem exam, I began tutoring Chemistry when I moved to Colorado last summer. On maternity leave from my Chemistry Teaching job in Douglas County, I find that tutoring is even more fun than teaching. I try to break the learning down into its simplest elements. I have paid much attention to where students go wrong and how to avoid those mistakes. I love chemistry and algebra, and I try to make that love of the...

As a former A.P. Chemistry teacher in Kentucky, with excellent success rate on the AP Chem exam, I began tutoring Chemistry when I moved to Colorado last summer. On maternity leave from my Chemistry Teaching job in Douglas County, I find that tutoring is even more fun than teaching. I try to break the learning down into its simplest elements. I have paid much attention to where students go wrong and how to avoid those mistakes. I love chemistry and algebra, and I try to make that love of the subjects infectious. My students and their parents recommend me.

Homeschool

I worked in a bilingual Montessori for a year as a Teacher's Aide, during which time I learned a lot about the Montessori methods as a facilitator who helps the child learn what he or she wants or needs to learn. I have investigated several homeschool curricula in the hopes of homeschooling my own son when he reaches school age (he's almost two now.) Plus I have an engineering Master's degree which makes me more than qualified in math and science, and I'm an avid reader, which makes me a very good writer. My own early study of Latin helped facilitate my learning French and Spanish and my ease with language helped me learn a good amount of German in college. Plus I love teaching, which is why I switched from engineering and got a Master's degree in Education.

Real-world experience as a chemistry teacher shows through

My daughter is happy with the progress she made studying with Danita, feels prepared for her test, and is looking forward to the next session.

Tom, 13 lessons with Danita

Excellent tutor

Danita has has helped my 15 year old twins with honors chemistry. She has helped them so much. She is excellent about explaining things and it very patient. She has been great about accommodating our schedule. We would highly, highly recommend Danita.

Eve, 27 lessons with Danita

Really helpful

15 year old sophomore here, taking AP Chemistry. I needed some help in the weeks before my final exam, and Danita was very helpful. I'm definitely going to use her for a tutor for the rest of the year.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Danita is very patient and explain things very clearly. I have learned with her things I have never learned before in class. She helped me with chemistry: balancing equations, writing net ionic equations, finding percent yield, enthalpy change... Great tutor!

Monica, 9 lessons with Danita

Very knowledgable and patient

Danita is awesome to work with and very helpful! She breaks things down in a way that truly makes sense and is easy to understand.

Brittany, 15 lessons with Danita

Amazing!

Danita is by far the best tutor I have had; this is saying a lot because I had a tutor every semester of undergrad. Danita helped my general chemistry score boost 6 points on the Dental Admission Test, this brought it from a well below average score to a competitive score. I learned more from her in a few weeks than I did the whole year I took it at the university. Without her I would have not been able to get as many interviews for dental school or get accepted so quickly.

Angela, 7 lessons with Danita

Creative and talented tutor!

Danita is very incredible at finding a way to explain even the most difficult Chemistry concepts so that I can understand and appreciate their meaning and use. She is an excellent teacher and has made it possible for me to get through College Chemistry when I didn't think that was possible!
