About Danielle

I have degrees in both ELA 7-12 and adult education. I have an ARRAY of teaching experience that includes elementary, middle and high school as well as adult education. I was a classroom teacher for five years and have tutored students professionally and as a volunteer. My biggest strength is my ability to encourage students and help them believe in themselves. This in turn creates motivation for them to do their very best!

I recognize that many students do not like to write. I try to figure out why this is the case and go from there. I like to build on what students are good at in writing and go from there. The same philosophy holds true with reading and grammar.

To strengthen study skills, I take a personal approach. I assess students' current study habits and then come up with a plan and strategy that best meets their personal situation.

I'd love to touch base with interested students/parents to see if I could somehow help their current academic situation.

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.

Study Skills

I have a bachelor's degree in 7-12 English and a master's degree in adult education. I have over 20 years experience teaching and tutoring, mostly ELA, but all subjects as well. In addition, I have worked with students from elementary age all the way to adults. I believe study skills need to be very strong, as they are the foundation of successful academics. Often times poor study habits are the root cause of poor academic performance. Therefore, I firmly believe in helping students discover helpful habits that lead to a successful academic career!
