I have been a teacher for 5 years with a dual masters in early and childhood education. I have worked with 2nd-9th graders and college students on reading, writing skills, literacy strategies and time management. In addition I have an extensive theater background which helps me turn phonics into the handwriting olympics and a term paper into a superhero support group. As a classroom teacher I collaborated with many different teachers and I am confident that I could work with the teachers connected to your family to ensure strong academic progress.
Danya is an extremely capable and devoted teacher. Each lesson is carefully planned with consideration of content, her students' individual goals, past experiences, and interests, and long term group goals. The students are engaged and active participants.
Danya is one of the most patient, explanatory people you will ever meet. Yes, she has great teaching experience, and is knowledgeable in a wide array of subjects. But more than that- she is an explainer. She breaks down information- to her children, to her friends, to her students- in a simple and direct fashion. She's a natural.
Danya is an incredibly creative and perceptive teacher. She knows her students well and tailors lessons to their strengths or weaknesses. She invents fun and effective games and activities that motivate all of her students. She gets them to think in many different ways, and they love every minute of it! I highly recommend Danya as a teacher.
Danya H is a great teacher because she is smart, kind and patient. As both a mother and a NYC certified teacher she is an expert in how children learn.
Danya tutored my 7 year old children in reading. She is extremely personable and knowledgeable. She captured their attention immediately and they felt an instant bond with her. She truly makes reading fun and not seem like work at all.
