University of Washington (B.S. Psychology)
Hello! I'm a working actress/mom of two young boys who has tutored K-6th grade in all subjects for 2 years as well as tutoring High School students in the Verbal portion of the SAT. I received my B.S. in Psychology from the University of Washington and plan on pursuing my Masters in Counseling in the near future. As a running and weight-lifting enthusiast (ran a marathon and have competed in power lifting on a national level), I believe in goal setting and can apply this to studying. I believe strongly in assessing a student's learning style (visual, auditory, or kinesthetic) and teaching them in a way they can learn best. I really enjoy tutoring and provide energy and enthusiasm for learning. I live in the Queen Anne area of Seattle and would like to work as close to home as possible. I am also an ACE-certified personal trainer and can provide in-home fitness training and program design. Thanks for reading! I hope to hear from you! Dana Hello!

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.
I am an ACE certified personal trainer with 2 years experience designing fitness programs for people. I specialize in in-home personal training which involves much more creativity on my part than training in a gym. I use the client's own weight as resistance, as well as resistance bands, the TRX suspension system, a BOSU, stability ball and medicine balls. Clients are welcome to use their own equipment as well, but it is not necessary. I train at either the client's home, or when the weather is acceptable, we go to a local park to get some outdoor exercise.
I tutored as a volunteer for 2 years for students in K - 6th in all subjects: math, reading, spelling, vocabulary, science, grammar, health, etc. I really enjoy working with this age group and saw improvements in the children that I worked with. I have also volunteered in my son's first grade classroom for the last year.
