About Lani

Greetings!

I am a current DCPS mathematics teacher and department chair, available for math tutoring for your child. I have 7 years of classroom teaching experience, as well as 15+ years of experience working with children and adolescents. I have previously taught middle school (6th-8th) math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, IB (International Baccalaureate) Math Studies, and Pre-Calculus.

I have a great personality with students, and always help motivate them to be successful. As a current classroom teacher, I have the knowledge of the exact skills and prerequisites your child needs to be successful in a particular math course. I have access to the same curriculum and materials used by your child's classroom teacher, as well as a wide repertoire of learning strategies to guide your student towards mastery. I also specialize in hands on Algebra One activities, as well creating learning experiences that help students develop a conceptual understanding of math topics.

I am available for tutoring on weekends, and select week nights. I am very flexible, and sometimes available with short notice. I am available to meet with you/your child at your home, or at a local library within a 5 mile radius of NE DC. Sessions are generally an hour, but can be made longer or shorter to meet your needs. My rate is $40 per hour ($50 per hour for locations outside of DC).

About Me:

- 7 years full time teaching experience in DCPS
- 10 years experience private tutoring
- Highly Effective DCPS rating
- OSSE Certification - Secondary Mathematics
- DCPS Algebra One Curriculum Writer
- Recipient of two "Master Teacher" fellowship awards with national education organizations
- Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Mathematics Education

Please email with a brief description of your needs, and I will be happy to contact you.

Thank You!

Approved subjects

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.
