Welcome! My name is Daniela and I am the founder of Accelerate Tutoring. I live in New York with my wonderful husband Kendell and our two blessings Isabella and Abigail.
I currently live in New York, but I grew up in Quito-Ecuador. My family moved to the United States when I was 15 years old. When we arrived in New York, I felt as if I was thrown into the middle of a storm. The school year had already begun, so I had no time to get used to the changes. I went through a period of cultural shock that made my high school years hard to say the least. I remember crying every day because I felt isolated due to the language barrier and subjects I had never studied before. However, there were a few amazing teachers that went above and beyond to help me succeed, and it is because of them that I became an educator myself.
I believe that having struggled emotionally and academically during those years has allowed me to connect more deeply with the families I have had the privilege to serve for the last decade. Every student has potential; every student needs support.
Accelerate Tutoring began serving families in 2014 as an In-Home service, however as of April 2020, we transitioned fully to online services.
