About Donna

I would like to get back into tutoring as I have been substitute teaching for over a year now. I substitute grades K-12 here in Phoenix. I have several outstanding skills sets. I love to learn and help others. My enthusiasm is definitely contagious.

I have a Master's in English as well as a Teaching Certification in English. I'm qualified in virtually all WyzAnt English skill areas including reading, writing, ACT & SAT reading and writing, grammar, vocabulary, ESL, TOEFL. I enjoy tutoring in English. People judge a person in 30 seconds...how you express yourself matters!

My MBA is a double major in Finance and Quantitative studies, providing me with outstanding training for a successful Wall St. career. I spent 20+ years on Wall St. programming, and managing software development projects for portfolio managers and traders...covering equities, currencies, futures and fixed income. I have extensive experience in training clients to use financial systems. I draw upon my MBA studies for tutoring in business, study skills, economics and statistics. Along with substitute teaching, I currently trade foreign currencies for my own account.

I use lesson plans with my students. These state the student's goals and details how we're going to reach them. It produces results. I feel it is a win-win situation for my students!

Regards,
Donna

"She will provide an excellent role model for young people to emulate and will create a learning environment that promotes opportunities for her students to excel in their own academic endeavors. Donna would be an asset to any organization, and I am happy to give her my endorsement."

Sincerely,

Matthew B.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

Before I received my MBA in Finance and Quantitative Studies, I graduated with my MA in English and a teaching certification in English. I have taught and tutored for several years, including teaching at risk students in NYC.

While working on Wall Street, I worked on the development of portfolio and trading systems. I also trained my clients on all software that I participated in developing. That makes 18 years of training. This experience, I believe, uniquely qualifies me to to serve as a tutor with WyzAnt.

Study Skills

Through my own undergraduate and graduate studies and multiple degrees, I can tell you I've learned how to study! This is to say that the study skills I have learned I, in turn, I teach to my students. I'm a real planner. I write out all my school assignments. Next, I guestimate the amount of time each task will take. I add a percentage overhead for interruptions, additional preparation in order to do the homework. Then I prioritize my assignments.
Finally, you plan your day to reach your goals. This approach tames any anxiety you might have. You are assured you have enough time to complete your work. No more crazy-making anxiety. This is a good thing!
