I specialize in one-on-one tutoring to help students read, write, and comprehend more effectively. I love working with students of all ages and levels to help boost their reading, writing, and comprehension skills--but more importantly, to teach them to be lifelong readers and learners in general.

I worked at Lindamood Bell Learning Processes for two years, where I was trained to teach reading from the ground up: building an awareness of letter sounds, familiarizing students with common pr...
My daughter has been working with Dane on basic reading and phonics for three months now. During that time we have transitioned from the regular learning schedule of daily school (in addition to tutoring) to summer vacation and we have moved halfway across the country and taken breaks for summer camp, etc. Dane has done an excellent job of adjusting the lesson content to include review and new materials depending on how frequently he is able to meet with my daughter and her ability (or sometimes lack thereof) to focus on the session that day. This adaptability has been key to my daughter continuing to advance in her phonics and reading skills even when life has been a little crazy. In addition, Dane does a great job of building a rapport with her. To describe her as reluctant to do reading tutoring at first would be an understatement; there were a few times she would end up sobbing in the floor at the thought of having to try to read. Now, every morning, she asks me about every five minutes ?is it time for reading yet??

My 15 yo has been doing sessions with Dane all summer. His reading speed, reading comprehension and writing skills have all very clearly improved. Dane is patient and engaging. My son actually enjoys the sessions! Dane uses multiple techniques, like imaging while reading, varying reading genres, adding vocab words, and writing short answers to summarize what's been read. We are going to continue with Dane once school starts because his help has been so beneficial.

Dane is awesome!! Highly recommend. He is upbeat and is able to engage my child with his reading. According to my 12 year old "He is lit." High praise coming from a 7th grader.

Dane had a great lesson with my son. He was able to pick up on my son?s learning style and what he need as far as practice is conceded. I?m excited to see my sons growth.

It was a pleasure to work with Dane. He was always upbeat, prepared and engaging with my 7 year old. He quickly evaluated my child and worked to help him improve.

My son has had two sessions with Dane so far and really enjoyed both. He looks forward to their time together and it's the first time he's also ever looked forward to reading. Dane speaks to him respectfully, really connects, and makes learning fun. Couldn't be more pleased! Thank you.

During our first session, Dane was able to quickly comprehend my son's learning deficits and needs and to engage him in a brief and fun lesson. Very impressive.
- Tamara S. from San Francisco, CA
Dane has consistently been able to completely engage my son. My son feels super comfortable. Dane is very motivating and encouraging. My son really seems to be learning. I am very happy with his progress.

Dane is very patient and brings a great attitude to helping young children with phonics. I highly recommend him if your child is having difficulty in this area he will be able to get your child to show improvement.

Dane put my 2nd grader at ease right away and got him writing more than he has in quite some time. After the session, my son said he is excited to meet with Dane every week. Yay!
- Andrea L. from San Jose, CA
Our second grader absolutely loved her first lesson with Dane! Not only did Dane thoroughly assess her and determine clear short-term and long-term objectives, but he also made her feel comfortable through playing educational games and keeping her laughing. We are confident we chose a great tutor who will help her in her path to becoming a fluent reader. When I told her I would give Dane a 5-star rating, she said "No, give him a 10!" Thank you so much, Dane, and we are already looking forward to the next lesson.

Dane was able to completely engage my son who is very easily distracted. This was our first session and my son felt super comfortable. Dane is very motivating and encouraging. My son really seemed to be learning. I will be scheduling weekly sessions. I am confident Dane will be able to get my son where he needs to be academically.
- Evangeline B. from Bronx, NY
My 9 year old looks forward to his sessions with Dane. He is kind, patient and knowledgeable. The positive reinforcement his gives has helped boost my son?s outlook on topics that once discouraged him. Book with Dane!
- Brittney A. from Tampa, FL
Dane is teaching out 1st grade soon to catch-up on his reading skills, and we think he's a very good fit for this age and reading level. Patient, too, and very skilled.
