Dana's Bio

A tutor who loves to laugh, Dana graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in finance and a minor in sociology. During her first year of college, she received the Freshman Academic Scholarship. Since graduating, she has spent the past twenty-five plus years working with youth in the areas of personal and academic development. Dana has taught middle and high school math courses in both traditional and alternative school settings, as well as owned a youth program that included an after-school program and summer camp for girls ages six to twelve.

Dana began teaching at an alternative school for at-risk teenage girls and later went on to work with the hospital/homebound program for her school district. She then transitioned to a traditional public school setting, teaching middle and high school level math courses to eighth-grade students, and spending after school hours providing private tutoring to high school and college students. She has also worked with students preparing for the SAT and ACT.

“I love my role in helping my students uncover their true math capabilities and develop strategies for problem-solving,” Dana says. “It is so rewarding to watch my students discover the connections between the math concepts and apply them appropriately to get the intended result.” Dana’s teaching and tutoring style centers around building a foundation for understanding the concept. “The most important question that I ask and answer is ‘why?’. If students are able to justify why the answer is valid using principles and properties, then it demonstrates true understanding. I also relate the concepts to real-world, tangible items or ideas as much as possible. This allows the learning to become concrete instead of abstract and therefore increases comprehension.”

In high school, Dana sang in the school chorus, played volleyball, and participated in the youth group at church. In college, she played intramural sports and was involved with volunteer projects. She enjoys gardening (both plants and veggies/herbs), biking, trying cultural recipes, movies, live theatre, and playing Wii dance games with her family.
