About Donna

Children have always had a special place in my heart and in my life. I became a teacher because I love to work with children and to see them excel. I spent 34 years in an elementary classroom and still have relationships with some of my students. I was a lead teacher in science and technology. However, the basic subjects of reading and math are at the top of my skill set. After I retired I spent 10 years with a non-profit to help students with reading. Seven of those years I worked with the neediest students at a school site. I was the site coordinator and supervised at least 5 other tutors.

If you choose me to tutor your child, I will be dependable. Your child will be special to me and I will do my best to see him reach his potential.

I taught elementary math for 34 years.

Reading is my specialty. My masters thesis is concerning reading habits and literature.

I have a life time teaching credential from the state of California. I can teach all elementary subjects.

Phonics are the basic stepping stones to reading success. I will see that your student has a solid base of Phonics.

I am willing to work in a public place or in your home. I am looking forward to meeting new students. Please contact me for more information.
