About Dr. Dawn L.

I have been teaching mathematics at all levels since earning my Bachelor of Science Degree from Bucknell University in 1987. I am a lover of mathematics and I bring mathematics to life in a way which is understandable and enjoyable for you (or your child). I make mathematics applicable to everyday life and I utilize techniques that promote learning and skill development. I specialize in Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra and Numerical Analysis and my expertise extends into graduate level courses.

My son, who has special needs and feels very ashamed that he is struggling in math, just had a lesson with Dr. Dawn, and it went very well! She was organized, calm and understanding. By the end of the lesson he was breezing through his homework!

High school math can be confusing if you don't understand everything before you leave class. Dr Dawn made a pretty quick impact on my sons understanding of geometry, understanding when to use the right methods and talking through word problems to make sure he knew what to solve. Definitely recommend!

Dr. Dawn has been amazing with my daughter. Other local tutors were intimidated by the subject material but Dr. Dawn took my daughter’s assignments in stride. Her command of the subject and her ability to teach complex concepts with grace and humor is unparalleled!! Thank you Dr. Dawn and TakeLessons! Maya
