Donna has been tutoring my son for a few weeks and he looks forward to her visits. She is personable, punctual and professional. She communicates well and has the ability to put my son at ease which helps him stay focused and excited about math. We are very happy with her math skills and the positive reinforcement my son receives at each session. I would recommend Donna to anyone who has a student who is struggling in math or just wants to stay one step ahead.
My student has now had 7 lessons with Donna. He looks forward to his tutoring sessions and each time is more positive when he is done. He feels much more confident about SAT Math, and even feels more confident about the SAT test taking process in general. I will of course report back on SAT Math improvement results. We are very happy and feel this investment is worthwhile.
As promised, I am updating my review with the results: SAT Math score improved 80 points! Due to overall help with test strategy, even Reading score improved 20 points. Keep in mind that this is a student with learning differences, especially in the area of Math. Not any tutor will do in this case. Donna connected well with my student and helped him to see that he knew more than he gave himself credit for. He felt no anxiety when he took the test after working with Donna, which is no small feat.
Donna C. has worked well with both of my daughters (age 11 and 13) for the past seven months. Our 13 year old has autism and Donna is teaching her useful studying skills by breaking down large assignments into smaller chunks of information. Donna has helped her with math, science and language arts. The knowledge and information she shares has been a huge help. My daughter's grades have improved, as have her studying habits.
Our 11 year old daughter has benefited from Donna's tutoring too. She has slowed down and is able to figure out assignments with more independence. Donna has worked with her on math, English and science. My daughter's study habits have improved, as have her grades. I would definitely recommend Donna C. as an excellent tutor!
Donna is a great teacher. My daughter is in 7th grade. She needed some help with math and language arts and working with Donna gave her exactly what she needed. Donna is very patient, relaxed and knows how to make kids feel comfortable. The bottom line is, if you need an experienced tutor who is very knowledgeable, patient, and caring, then I would highly recommend Donna.
Donna is a wonderful tutor. She tailors the lessons around my child's learning habits, which we all know is an invaluable part of tutoring. She is always on-time and very flexible with her schedule. Will be continuing the tutoring with her for the next SAT test.
My daughter's test results went from a 52% to an 87% after only three lessons with Donna! My daughter was immediately at ease with Donna and feels completely comfortable asking why and saying she doesn't understand when she needs to. Donna has helped my daughter with algebra, which has given her the tools she needs to improve her geometry skills. Highly recommend.
My student came into the session feeling frustrated b/c he had trouble on the practice problems. After the session, he felt a LOT better and said he was going to keep plugging away at it. Great job, Donna!
Donna not only is an excellent tutor, she also provides invaluable advice and perspective on how special needs students can best approach the college consideration process. Her instruction has helped my son be more confident and successful, and her advice has helped us gain a better understanding of his options and opportunities.
Donna is an outstanding tutor, and she is a very professional individual who does her very best and then some to make sure a individual has a clear understanding to what's being taught.
She is a very nice and patient teacher. My son is very happy with her and each lesson my son learns lots of tips, vocabulary and everything he needs for a great SAT test. Thank you very much!
We were so lucky to find Donna, geometry is not an easy subject to teach, but Donna is a master educator, a teacher by profession she explains everything so clearly to my daughter. We had a few tutors and my daughter complained about not understanding them, but with Donna NOT A SINGLE COMPLAINT, perfect tutor, highly recommend her!
Ms. Donna has been a tremendous asset for my daughter with her math class. She is very patient and easy to work with. My daughter feels that she can ask questions at any time even if they are repetitive. Very happy with Ms. Donna. (Outstanding)
Donna is wonderful! my daughter is really comfortable with her. She received an 84% on her first test since seeing Donna. We are thrilled.
Donna has been working with my Son and he has improved his algebra knowledge, he feels more comfortable with what he is learning and he is gaining confidence in the class room according to him. Thanks to her working with him, he is feeling better about taking the SAT's.
Donna has been concentrating on preparing my daughter for SAT. The preparation covers all sections and aspects of SAT including, but not limited to math, writing, and critical reading. Donna is always on time for the lessons and is well prepared. She is always on top of any questions my daughter might have and never hesitates with the answers. All the answers and explanations are detailed with specific reasoning of why the choice is correct and other choices are not. Understanding of why certain answer is not correct is as important as understanding of why another answer is correct. Donna’s explanations are always on the point and geared towards my daughter’s specific needs. Donna is also knowledgeable in SAT "Tricks" and overall test taking methodologies. My daughter and I found it very useful since it helps to save time on the test and "guess" some answers. Donna has been tutoring my daughter for few month now and I already see a good progress in all sections of SAT. Donna is a knowledgeable, well prepared and detailed tutor.
Donna has tutored my 17 year-old daughter in pre-calculus twice so far. There is already a huge increase in my daughter's confidence level as well as an equally large decrease in her stress level where pre-calculus is concerned. Donna is able to take a difficult subject that was causing my daughter so much stress and worry, and make it more understandable. I would highly recommend Donna to anyone in need of a math tutor.
Donna is a great teacher; she takes the time to go over everything my daughter needs. My daughter appreciates that Donna is so encouraging and helpful.
