About Dana

"Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning" anonymous

I believe that all children can learn through hands on activities and interactive learning. I have a love for teaching children to learn and grow. I believe every child can learn through their own ways and I enjoys helping them learn the best way possible.

I specialize tutoring in early childhood and childhood education, along with special education. I have experience with children from ages three to fifteen. When interacting with students I always begin with a short assessment to see were the student stands academically. I integrate hands on activities to keep students engages while learning. Students should be challenged but not overwhelmed while learning and gaining extra help.

I currently am a eighth grade teacher and provide tutoring on the side to see all students succeed. I currently hold a New York sate teaching license in early childhood education and childhood education for students with disabilities. I received my undergraduate degree at Concordia College and my masters degree from The College of New Rochelle. I have always had a passion to helping children, and believe all children can learn with a little love and care.

To assure students learn to the best of there ability I am flexible about where students study. I am happy to travel to assure the student is comfortabe while learning.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and help achieve success!

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.
