With more than ten years of experience in the education field, I have met and worked with a slew of different students. My compassionate nature and willingness to go the extra mile has always proved beneficial to my clients. I work closely with students, getting to know their strengths and weaknesses, so that we can draft an effective plan of action and tackle each class/paper/project most efficiently. I am reflective and take time before and after tutoring sessions to reflect on a student's individual needs. I often create instructional aids and supplemental activities for my students.

I received my teaching certification while double-majoring in Hispanic Studies and Elementary Education. I earned my Master's in the Art of Teaching shortly thereafter. Currently, I serve as a high school outreach ambassador for an educational consulting group that specializes in higher education. My oral and written communication skills are excellent and my rapport with students and parents has always proved exceptional. Over time, I have built an arsenal of communication and instructional strategies that I access daily in order to maximize every tutoring session that I run. I am focused, yet flexible, and will do all that I can to help a student realize his or her full potential. I am committed to my students' success.

Dana is knowledgeable and FUN! My daughter really enjoys working with her!

Dana has been such a wonderful tutor for our daughter this summer! She is working with her on improving her writing skills and it is a joy to see them work together. She seems to understand my daughter and how she works and she appears to make learning and working fun for our daughter.

Cynthia, 26 lessons with Dana

Dana is a knowledgeable and patient tutor.

My child is a rising first grader. I wanted to get her some more experience reading with someone with a teaching background. My daughter and I are excited to be working with Dana. She's doing a great job.

Kind and compassionate

Dana is an amazing tutor. She has a way of making my daughter feel comfortable and focused. I will continue to use her services next year.

Quick proofreading turn around time

Best thing is the turn around time. Dana understands the more demanding teachers and the need to turn around proofreading quickly. She also is flexible on individual needs.
