"I have nothing but the highest recommendation for Dana. We are so lucky to have found her – not only is she kind, knowledgeable, patient and encouraging, but she accommodates a working mom’s schedule. Her knowledge and kindness has made her a very effective tutor- this is the first time my kids are excited to learn and show confidence in their work. Thank you Dana!"

Dana has improved my self-confidence, motivation and grades. When I began working with her I was failing one class and had a D in another. Within two months, my grades in both classes were A's. I would never have been able to accomplish this without her. Dana really cares and is teaching me a lot more than academics. She has shown me where I've been in my own way and how to fix the problem. Never thought that this was possible. My parents are thrilled!"

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of the hard work you did with our daughter. When she started first grade she was struggling to read. She was very discouraged and we recognized that her frustration was just compounding the situation, she was losing confidence and focus. You taught her reading in a way that helped unlock important skills and you made every session fun and enjoyable for her. Now her confidence has improved considerably. We are grateful to you for giving our daughter confidence and for assisting her greatly in improving her performance. Thank you again for all your help."

"Coming from a very different kind of education system, Dana was always there for me, making the transition to college very smooth and easy to understand. Dana is very knowledgeable and offers advice and strategies to stay on a path to educational success by focusing on someone's skills, strengths and passions. I'm so happy to have worked with her during my course of study at CUNY Laguardia Community College."

"Dana taught me the skills I needed to know to prepare for my college classes and my future career as a Registered Nurse. The Nursing program is demanding and time management is important. Dana helped me to prioritize my time, set achievable goals and create a plan for success. Although, I was skeptical about registering for my nursing prerequisite classes, with Dana's coaching, I felt confident going into my first semester of college."
