Dana’s teaching philosophy focuses on learning about and bonding with students on a one-to-one basis, in conjunction with supporting their unique academic needs and learning styles. She loves for her sessions to have a balance of laughter and story sharing alongside academic and emotional support. She lives in Woodstock with her two bunnies, Sophi and Leroy.
