About Deana

My love for teaching stems from a love of learning. I believe teaching to be both a calling and a passion. It certainly is for me. The greatest success I can have as a teacher is to create an eager, life-long learner.

My goal is to make learning an enjoyable and successful experience for my students. I have a dual Master's degree in Childhood Education and Literacy. In addition, I have taught in both classroom and small group settings.

I believe it is important to first get to know a student, become acquainted with his or her learning style and then assess the specific areas or skills that need developing. From there, I develop individualized instruction to meet these learning needs. I provide frequent feedback to students and parents, and appreciate the same in return. Learning should be a positive experience and I strive to create that for my students.

Contact me to get started! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Patient and Creative Tutor

Deana has been working with my rising first grader for a few weeks before school starts. They've been working on reading comprehension and in just a few short sessions my child has improved dramatically. She looks forward to her sessions with Deana. Deana is professional, organized and creative. Awesome experience so far!
