Hi, I’m Dana! Helping students achieve success on the ACT and in their Math classes is my passion! Let me tell you a little more about myself: I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida State University and then continued my education at the University of South Florida. At USF, I earned my Master’s of Arts in Teaching with an emphasis in Math Education. I have been educating students since 2012. I’ve always been passionate about helping young people experience academic success. As a classroom teacher, I challenged my students to master complex Mathematics concepts. I took special joy in helping my students achieve high scores on their end of course tests. Now, I use that passion to help students achieve their ACT goals. I LOVE identifying my students’ strengths and weaknesses in order to help them get to the next level. I think of test prep as a puzzle: what skills are missing and how can we best build those skills? I try to bring a sense of enthusiasm and encouragement to every lesson.

Although I love helping students prepare for standardized tests, I enjoy helping students experience success in their Math classes, as well. I have classroom experience teaching Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry. Additionally, I have one-on-one experience tutoring students in 5th grade through Algebra 2. I would love to help you gain a deeper understanding of the Math topics that are frustrating you!

Before I start teaching a student, I always ask questions about the understanding they currently have. Often, students are at an impasse because they have a gap in their prior knowledge or learned a previous skill incorrectly. I try to listen as much as I speak so that students have the opportunity to understand where they went wrong on their learning journey. Then, we can work to correct the problem so they can be successful!

Teaching is truly my passion. Seeing my students succeed is what gets me out of bed in the morning! I would love to work with you to help you grow in your academic journey. I’m happy to use whatever resources a student has (textbooks, assignments, notes, etc.) or I can develop study and practice materials for you! Contact me today to schedule an appointment or even if you just have a few more questions!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Dana helped with upcoming math test; she was patient and explained the material well. She was friendly and easy to work with. We look forward to working with her in the weeks to come in preparation for the mid term final.

Great tutor!

Studying for the GRE and needed some help with math. Really enjoyed my lesson with Dana and looking forward to the next! She made everything easy to understand! It’s been a while since I’ve taken any math courses, and Dana was able to break the lesson down into easy to grasp concept!

Tutoring with Dana

Math & Science. She always makes sure to teach a simplified way of solving problems and equations and gives a better understanding of what questions are asking. So far, she has helped immensely in my comprehension and test taking strategies for these subjects.

Friendly and Knows a Lot!

Upon meeting Dana she was friendly right away. She listened to all of my concerns and asked for my strengths and weaknesses. I was able to ask as many questions as I needed without feeling unintelligent and felt very comfortable with her. Though the travel distance was a bit far for me, it was totally worth it.

Luca

Dana helped Luca prepare for his algebra 1 final. He feels really confident about taking it. I haven’t seen him like this all year. We will definitely see Dana again for geometry.

Fantastic

Initial 2 HR session was extremely helpful to my son, and he learned a ton in a short period of time. He had been struggling with an online math class, and Dana was able to break through and make sense of a tough set of formulas. Thank you!

Great Tutor!

Dana is so friendly and makes you feel comfortable right away! We’ve had a good process during the lesson by working on problems and then solving the ones I have trouble one, giving me strategies to prevent the mistakes from occurring in the future. Would highly recommend!!

Amazing

Dana tutored my 9th grade daughter in Algebra 1. She was able to create a relationship with my daughter in just a short time. Our daughter has to connect with her teacher/tutor for her to hear anything. So Dana was perfect!!
