About Donald

Beyond a deep love of math; I have been working with students k-12 in a school setting for almost 20 years. I have dealt with kids on the worst days and have learned a great deal about patience and how to get them to believe in themselves. I pride myself on being too quickly beyond the wall many students put up when they struggle and lose confidence in themselves.

There is a moment when a learner finally gets past the barrier that they were struggling with and the epiphany of success is achieved. That is what I look forward to bringing to those I work with. When learners struggle, it is easier to fall into a spiral of self doubt. I know I can teach others not only to understand their subjects but also to truly learn to enjoy them.

I am currently working for multiple school districts as sub for grade levels k-8. I am routinely working with students as they are engaged in new maths such as common core and I am more than ready to help those struggling with these new concepts.

Math is not only my favorite subject and my passion, but I feel that it is key to the success of almost all learners, no matter their long term goals. It is the foundation of a successful future.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a lifelong passion for math and have also been substitute teaching in a high school and middle school setting the last few years, so I am very familiar with Algebra 1.

Elementary Math

I have sub taught in elementary schools for the last 2 school years and I am more than comfortable tutoring in this subject. I have experience working in the new common core math and feel that I can help students transition from the old style of instruction to what is now being adopted.

Elementary Science

I have sub-taught in elementary schools for the last 2 school years and I am more than comfortable tutoring in this subject. I have over 15 years of experience working with students from grades K-6 and feel that I can help students overcome whatever hesitations they might have when working on science.
