About Dana

I am currently a 5th grade special education teacher who has worked with students from elementary school through college. I've been teaching for 13 years, most often in high school English, and have taught in England and the Czech Republic, as well as schools in Chicago and north Mississippi. I have tutored and taught students with Aspberger's and a range of learning differences, as well as gifted students. I am very patient, but expect and encourage the best out of each student, modifying my style to meet their needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have taught high functioning autistic students at various schools. I have the patience and methods to help a child with this particular special need.

Dyslexia

I have worked with dyslexic students in the past, from mildly dyslexic to those with more severe learning difficulties. I taught at a Christian school where 40% of the students had learning disabilities, most of whom were dyslexic on some level. I have learned to adapt to a child's individual needs and am flexible in dealing with their needs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught children as young as 4th grade in core subjects, and have done long-term substituting as young as kindergarten. I love working with children of all ages.

Phonics

I got a Master's Degree in Linguistics and have learned many ways of teaching vocabulary using sound and etymologies.

Praxis

I have taken the writing portion of the Praxis and got a very high score on it. I'm qualified to teach English and have taught college level English in the past.

Study Skills

After thirteen years of teaching, mostly in high school, I have learned ways to advise students how to get the most out of their study time. I show students how to organize and use mnemonics devices and other methods to help them remember material.
