About Daina

Hello,

My name is Daina and I've been tutoring for over 7 years. I tutored English as a second language in a local Community College for 2 years, at private companies for 4 years, and independently for over a year.

Each student has different needs, learning disabilities, or needs one on one instruction in order to excel. I work with individuals who have a desire to learn or try to inspire those who are less confident to succeed.

I've worked with adults who never learned to read, those who wanted to learn English, those who had medical disabilities, home schooled one individual, and children who needed one on one learning to be promoted.

My preferred subjects include Reading on all levels (k-12), World History, American History, and elementary education.

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 (K-6th)

I worked for a private agency who worked with children in the Public School system who had low or failing End of Grade (EOG)test scores. I administered the initial assessments in reading and math. I gave instructions and assisted some students in clarifying what was expected of them in giving the answers. I encouraged, supported, and praised each child for any effort they showed. It helped them relax and gave them confidence.

As I continued to work with the students assigned to me I built a good rapport. I learned what each student needed for comfort and I reinforced their confidence with the challenges they encountered. Often reading aloud is uncomfortable for students so I make it a point to cover and teach exercises that helps give individuals assurance needed to try again. Comprehension is required for proper understanding. So I will repeat the work several times before moving on. Math comes easier when students have use of tools like flash cards that help their memory.

Study Skills

I received certification after satisfactorily fulfilling the requirements as a Literacy Tutor for
the County of Wayne in North Carolina through Wayne Community College in 1995.

Good study habits have to be developed and increased over time. Repeating the steps in math, re-reading the paragraphs, using the dictionary, using flash cards, and finding a quiet place without disturbance increases study skills. Utilizing study aids helps students reinforce what material they will learn, comprehend, and retain.
