About Danna

College Application and Essay Tutoring Services - Accepted to UF and FSU Law Schools and a law school and undergraduate scholarship recipient.

I am able to work with each student to find the best approach for an admission or scholarship essay, capitalizing on the student's unique strengths and experiences. My combination of work in the fields of communication, education, editing, and marketing/public relations make me well qualified to present a student's credentials in the most effective way to his or her target audience.

Having taught language arts, I am a skilled writer and editor. When I took the Brainbench Online Business Communication and Written English tests, I was rated #1 in Florida and among the top 1% in the country. I was previously employed as an editorial assistant for the Kiplinger Washington Editors and have been involved in all phases of publishing, from the initial research and writing phrases to the final design and production.

I also served on the scholarship selection committee for Georgetown University's Central American Scholarship Program, a USAID funded educational development initiative. Most importantly, I have worked with successful applicants to many top-notch universities including Southern Methodist University, University of Miami Law School, University of Virginia Law, FSU, UCF, LSU, and UM. I helped these students edit their essays to focus keenly on their most marketable accomplishments, and I also helped them prepare their applications. They were all admitted to their first-choice university or program.

Although no guarantees are implied by these credentials and statistics, my goal is always for the student to be admitted to his or her college of choice.

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. 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.

By creating an organizational system with the student, discussing challenges and strengths, and helping the student to prioritize, I can help a student become a more disciplined and effective learner.

Danna's help was invaluable!

Danna expertly guided my granddaughter through the daunting maze of the college application process. I don't think that we would have successfully done this without her help. My only regret, is that we did not know about the WyzAnt tutoring service sooner so that we could have begun the application process earlier than we did. Even with the short amount of time, Danna got the job done. Thanks to D
