About Dana

Hello.

I've been teaching chemistry and physical science at the secondary level for 15 years. I've tutored multiple subjects, especially mathematics, for 17 years to students in elementary and secondary grades. In addition, I have conducted HSPA, ACT, Praxis, and GED preparation courses.

In my classroom, I employ an array of student-centered learning activities, project-based assignments, and Socratic pedagogy. Special learners, or those with IEP's, benefit from differentiated instruction through RAFT, Tiered, and cooperative learning activities. I'm equipped with the knowledge and experience to differentiate the instruction depending on your child's needs.

I earned my doctorate (EdD) in educational leadership in 2012 and am venturing into an administrative position, so tutoring keeps me directly involved with student learning. Once a teacher...always a teacher.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I've tutored, mainly, mathematics and science from grades 1 through 10 for fourteen years. Additionally, I've served as an SAT, GED, GRE, and literacy tutor for adolescents and adults.
