About Dayna

Hello,

As a prospective tutor, I'd like to take a moment to familiarize myself regarding your needs in reading, writing and language arts as well as basic Microsoft Office skills. I have over 30 years of tutorial experience which includes working with children, adults, and college level undergraduate/graduate students.
I possess a MSED in teacher education and have successfully enhanced the skills of numerous 'clients' in Los Angeles, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Washington, DC; Harford County, MD. Most recently, I tutored through Porter Education and Communications, Inc. a company that services students' needs in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Tutoring is my passion! Over the years I have worked with various populations - elementary education; adult education; community college; university; at risk youths. My approach to the learning process is to provide a positive and encouraging environment which enables my 'clients' to successfully meet their academic goals. I am here to help and I look forward to working with you.

Education:
I have a MIS from University of Phoenix, a MSED from University of Southern California and a BA from University of California, Irvine.

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.

Phonics

I hold an MSED (Masters of Science in Education) my concentration was on elementary education. I have a summary and thorough knowledge of letters, spelling patterns, and words. My strength lies in providing extension, instruction designed to develop the student’s sensitivity to spellings and their reactions to pronunciations which are important in the development of reading skills.
I have experience with the following:
Linguistic Phonics – focusing similarities found in words like cat, rat, mat, and bat where the emphasis is on word patterns rather than individual letter sounds.
Synthetic Phonics – sounding out-and blending so that students are taught to decode new words by retrieving from memory the sound that each letter, or combination of letters, in order to blend the sounds into recognizable words.

Reading

Reading expertise includes emphasis on strengthening word recognition; syllabication (sounding out); word association; comprehension skills; language arts development; functions of writing.

Writing

Experience in writing master's level assignment papers, term papers and thesis. I have taught at both the Adult Education and Community College levels. My expertise is in content formulation, formatting, and grammar.
