About Dana

I have two years of teaching experience with Teach For America, where I taught 6th grade math. During my teaching experience, I produced the most success while using hands-on learning techniques, technology, and TIPS not TRICKS! Students walked away with a deep understanding of how to complete their math problems and apply the concept. And not just on that one problem, but every single time.

I love to tutor because every student should (and can) feel confident in the classroom. Repeated success is incredibly powerful - it would be an honor if I could be involved in making the classroom a more exciting place.

During the first year of implementation, I designed the school-wide, grade-level curriculum to transition from state standards to Common Core. This change activated a 20% increase in test scores and more than 1.5 years of growth. Furthermore, I motivated more than 200 students to achieve an average of 90% class mastery on weekly benchmarks as aligned and measured by the rigorous Common Core curriculum.

I have also produced highly-individualized, customized, and personalized lessons for more than 500 6th grade students, which activated high levels of student engagement and investment.

Graduating with a business degree from the Kelley School of Business, with honors, I am equipped with advanced Microsoft Excel skills, and I would be honored to share this skill-set with others.

I have hands-on experience in digital marketing. Also, I have lead an entire digital marketing department. My hands-on experiences coupled with my marketing degree gives me the confidence and the ability to support students in their marketing-related endeavors.

If you are interested in a supportive teacher who can offer you the tools to repeated success - TIPS not TRICKS - I'd love to connect with you and start learning!

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.

Elementary Math

I was selected as one of 3,000 of 17,400 applicants by Teach For America to teach in under-resourced communities and lead national service corps to expand opportunities for all children. As a sixth grade math teacher for two years, I designed grade-level curriculum to transition from state standards to Common Core, integrating blended learning and best practices, activating a 20% increase in test scores with honored distinction with high growth (+1.5 years growth). Furthermore, I successfully motivated more than 200 students to achieve an average of 90% class mastery on weekly benchmark exams aligned to the rigorous Common Core Curriculum.

Marketing

Leading the digital marketing department at Specialized Education Services, Inc. (SESI), I worked to optimize multi-channel outreach efforts and build custom pipeline reporting strategies through the launch and management of a campaign management system. With a constant eye on deepening SESI’s impact where the need is greatest, I also diligently focused efforts on customer relationship management (Salesforce), data reporting of lead behavior to Chief of Business Development, and administer state-of-the-art outreach initiatives. I graduated with a BS in Business, Marketing with Honors from a nationally ranked top ten business school, Indiana University Bloomington - Kelly School of Business.

Microsoft Excel

I graduated with Honors from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business with a Business Degree (Honors). My education not only equipped me with advanced Excel skills, but I also applied my advanced Excel skills working as the Director of Marketing Technology. Excel has been an essential tool for analyzing and interpreting data in my career. Furthermore, I've trained my colleagues and shown them the benefits of Excel.
