Success that Spans Two Decades

How have we been successful for so long? We offer our clients a winning combination of undivided attention, collaboration, flexibility, convenience, privacy, and proprietary programs that translate students’ strengths into tools for academic and life success.  A team of tutors who share our enthusiasm for inspiring a passion for learning and growth is key to our success, too!

“First and most importantly, I have been meaning to let you know how deeply important our tutor has been in our lives!! She is by far the most gifted, inspiring teacher I have encountered (& I’ve been teaching for 14 years). She has changed my daughter’s life in more ways than one and, simply put, is just totally amazing!!! Her passion for what she does is so apparent & shines through our daughter in her love of learning. I can not imagine being without her. You have a fabulous & dynamic program & I look forward to working with you for as long as our tutor will take us!!”

“Students with learning and attention deficit disorders require comprehensive and systematic programs of support, that include direct instruction in the strategies and techniques that can help them to cope with or bypass their information processing disorders. More often than not, such instruction is rejected if it is provided by the parents, who often don’t know where to begin and have no training in what to do. I have found that the services and tutors available through On-Track Tutoring are welcomed by students and parents alike, and are some of the most important sources of empowerment for the students to take responsibility for their own needs, and to become successful. The feedback I receive regarding On-Track Tutoring is always very positive.”

“Our child has just started On-Track’s SAT program on a one-to-one basis with one of your tutors. He has taken Princeton AND Sylvan courses and said that he has already learned so much more from On-Track’s strategies. He said there are new things he has never seen. Look at that!”

“My husband and I recently worked with Nicole at On-Track Tutoring for family coaching and early childhood services. We were looking for methods to help us with our 3-year-old son and with his constant frustrations. We liked her immediately and were interested in what she could offer us in terms of coming into our home and giving us some tools to use with our son. I have to say that our experience with Nicole has been one of the best experiences we’ve had in a long time. She has helped us in a variety of ways, from very simple modifications such as empathizing with our son’s frustrations to more complicated strategies such as role playing for Braden so that he understands discipline. There are no words to describe the change in Braden over the last few weeks. I feel more confident in how I deal with him because of Nicole’s suggestions. I have to admit that I was quite skeptical about some of her approaches. Many times I would think in my head, “That’s not going to work with Braden.” But I went ahead and tried anyway because frankly, what did I have to lose? I couldn’t believe the results. I could go on and on. And I plan on continuing to use Nicole in the future whenever we come upon a stumbling block that we can’t seem to resolve ourselves. This is a wonderful, wonderful service that I think every parent should know about. It should be a standard gift at every baby shower. They say children don’t come with manuals, which is so true, but if you have a person who can coach you in how to deal with certain behaviors, it’s truly wonderful.”

” I was having difficulties with reading comprehension and Dana recognized the situation. She provided testing to understand my problems more in-depth. As a result I began working with a wonderful tutor, finished high school, and I am now a first-year student at our community college. I would definitely recommend the services of On-Track Tutoring.”
Rachel, College Student
“Dana Herzberg and On-Track Tutoring was everything we were looking for when we needed to find help for our son. Our son had been diagnosed with several learning challenges and has severe problems in written expression and AD/HD. Dana not only found the right tutors for our son but she helped educate both my husband and me on what our rights were as parents. She saw to it that we got the right accommodations for him at school and on numerous occasions she attended meetings with us as our consultant. There is absolutely no way our son would be where he is today without the help of Dana Herzberg. Dana is so passionate about what she does, and we all are so grateful to her. My son is twenty three years old now and he is great friends with Dana. I guess you could say she is an on-going life-coach for him as well. Thank you Dana, you are a true blessing!”

“The way our daughter’s new tutor speaks of On-Track shows that she has the utmost respect for what you are undertaking and she seems very pleased to be a part of it. Our daughter is acting as if a weight has been lifted from her shoulders. Her tutor is very flexible, upfront, confident and excited to take on another student. We look forward to working with her!”
Proud Parent
“Our daughter has really been paying better attention in math since she’s been helped by the tutoring and Foundations program. She no longer feels lost and uninterested. She’s excited about challenges now that she has been successful! Thank you so much! It sure has made a difference!”
Proud Parent
“Thank you so very much for sending our tutor to us! He is bright, talented, wonderful and a natural tutor. He understands our daughter and instructs as he tutors and brings out the best in her. I have asked him if he will tutor in PSAT/SAT and language over the summer. We LOVE him!”

“On Track Tutoring, led by Dana Herzberg, has been a tutor, advocate and friend to my family for about 9 years. Dana began one-on-one tutoring with my oldest son Ben who was in 8th grade when we first received his diagnosis of ADHD. She helped us begin to understand Ben’s learning needs and passionately advocated for him throughout his high school years. Even when she or one of her team was not actively tutoring him she continued to be a friend and mentor to him whenever possible. Dana was at times the only source of support we had through many difficult times. Dana’s dedication to her families and students is extraordinary. She sets high standards for her team of tutors and each and every time they have demonstrated the same level of compassion and expertise that sets On Track Tutoring apart from other services.

On Track Tutoring and Dana herself have continued to guide and teach our other two sons over the years in a variety of ways. One of the tutors has tutored all three of my boys through Math and other sciences. She has earned their respect and gratitude for always finding the right way to let them see the light of learning when they really did not think they could. She accomplished this despite the fact that they each had very different learning styles and needs. Just this year my son who is a now a Junior at Loyola Marymount contacted his former tutor to proudly inform her of his “A” in his college Math class. He credits her to this day for her help in making this possible. We continue to trust Dana and her team with tutoring our youngest son as he faces a rigorous academic schedule at Brophy.

It is exciting to watch the growth of the services provided by On Track Tutoring. We are confident that this growth still maintains the personal and caring attention that is the foundation of Dana Herzberg’s vision of meeting the needs of every student. Dana’s passion to celebrate the learning needs of every child is the example that should be followed by every educator. We are sincerely appreciative to have been a family that has experienced this level of caring and support.”
