About Dana

I have nearly 15 years of experience in education as both a teacher and school leader. My professional work has been focused on helping elementary students be successful and I have a particular love for teaching reading and writing.

As a child I had the pleasure of working with a math tutor for six years. My tutor helped me become successful in math, and I still think about my experiences with her fondly. Thinking about this, I know firsthand the importance of finding a tutor who is a good fit - one who understands your child's particular needs, offers gentle correction as needed, and develops student confidence and independence.

I have training in expertise in a variety of approaches to teaching reading and writing and demonstrated success working one-on-one with students and can work with students of various levels, including those with disabilities. I would love to work with your child and provide the support that he or she may need to reach their full potential.

I am in trained in a variety of programs that address students' phonetic needs, including curricla based upon Orton-Gillingham.

I can't wait to support you and your child.

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.

Phonics

I have been a special education teacher for 9 years. I have specific experience helping struggling readers learn how to read through phonics instruction. I also am trained in Fundations, one component of the Wilson Reading Systems reading suite.
