About Donna

I am an experienced certified teacher who truly loves the experience of helping children do their best and watching the difference in their outlook as they achieve that.

I have taught students Pre-k through adult in public schools, learning centers and my home in four different states for twenty-five plus years. One of my previous classes dug up their time capsule we buried in the 1980's in FL. I was so pleased my former students remembered the class activities we did to learn certain educational skills we needed to learn for promotion to the next grade. I also met a former room mother that took my advice, went back to school and got for her in education and became a teacher. She told me it was my encouragement that made her go to college. As a tutor with Wyzant I can share my stories of my former students and the methods and ideas that made them enjoy learning and their accomplishments.

I have a bachelor's degree in Education from Millersville University (PA) with additional studies in a Master's program at Kennesaw State and West Georgia. My teaching certificate covers PreK-Eigth Grade. I was nominated as Teacher of the Year in a former position.

Your child will improve regardless of whether they need help reaching grade level or if he/she is already a high achiever. One on one tutoring is a more productive method than being in a classroom where a teacher has to divide her attention among many students. Tutoring provides the teacher the opportunity and time required to identify the particular method(s) that will most helpful to each individual student.

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.

Chess

I have been a novice chess player for many years. I believe that developing strategy, and focusing on the execution of plans and reacting to your opponents efforts is a very good way to gain skills helpful in many other areas. In after school programs, both elementary and middle school, I taught the students the rules of the games, moves of the various pieces and basic strategy.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified pre-k-8 grade teacher with over twenty years experience in four states. I love to see my students achieve the required level of competence and to see the confidence and pride they display when they have done so.

Phonics

I am a certified teacher in GA in PreK through eighth grade and middle grades in Language Arts and Social Sciences. I taught phonics in my Languages Arts classes in the state of GA . During summer school I tutored for students in their homes. In public schools I taught summer classes in Language Arts and reading classes first through high school. I also taught reading and Language Arts in PA, FL and MA.
