About Daina

I am currently a kindergarten teacher and a candidate for a second masters of education from Lipscomb University's teacher preparation program. I received my first masters of education from Framingham State University in 2015. I have four years of experience teaching ESL in Taipei, Taiwan to students in kindergarten through professional life. My previous ESL students spoke Chinese (Mandarin), Japanese, Arabic, and German.

Every lesson I teach is personalized to the needs of the student I am seeing that day. I do not always have students just sit at their desk for a lesson. I've taken ESL students to the mall for conversation practice, to a book store to pick their own reading material, to a museum to experience an exhibit. Any of these real world experiences is possible for your student, with extension activities to write about it, read more about the subject, or talk about it. Students in my class are expected to apply what they have experienced and learned.

My hourly rate is set higher than the average for this site, but I have a style of teaching that is very dedicated to every student I see. I've helped students make tremendous progress through memorable one on one lessons. If you want to have a teacher who is 100% dedicated to helping you or your student achieve progress in their learning goals I can help them get there.

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.

Regents

I took the Regents exams in New York as I went to high school there. I am familiar with the test prep questions from text like Barrons Review (sold nation wide). I took the Regents exams in English, world history, US history, Math (A & B), Earth science, biology.

Social Studies

I teach social studies in my classroom as part of my full time job. Social studies is about making big picture connections between events, economic conditions, political conditions, physical conditions, and human relations. I am qualified to teach this as I am a licensed teacher and studied the topics included in social studies in college (undergrad and graduate).
