My name is Don A. and my experience in tutoring started with tutoring students in computers through my college years. Later, I had my own Graphic Design business where I educated my customers on their needs for their business and so forth. I also tutored special needs college students through Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Program. I am patient and will listen to your needs. For example; I had a female student who went through several tutors and were still making bad grades. I found that her confidence was low and she didn't care about her studies. I built her confidence back up and she became interested in the subjects and went from a D average student to making A and B grades.

What ever your having trouble with, I will work with you and you will accomplish your goals.
