About Donielle

I have always had a passion for English and learning languages in general. This passion has led me to pursue studies in foreign languages and linguistics, and I received a BA in Spanish and an MA in Linguistics/TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I have over ten years experience in a classroom setting as well as on-on-one tutoring of all aspects of English. My focus has mainly been with adult learners of English as a second language, and I have taught students from all over the globe and from many different language backgrounds, but I have worked with all ages and levels of English development. I have considerable experience teaching writing composition for all levels, including college prep. I can help you with topic development and organizational strategies to improve your essays and make them stand out, an essential skill that will be so useful for many standardized tests or entrance exams. I am a bit of a "grammar nerd" and I love thinking about language structure, noticing patterns, and finding ways to explain grammar so that it makes sense, rather than expecting that rules should just be memorized. I like to incorporate multiple teaching styles to stimulate individual interest and to help tap into learners' strengths. I am also available to tutor beginner or intermediate Spanish.
