About Donald

Are you or your child struggling with education, looking to boost your education or just need someone for test prep? My name is Don and am a certified teacher whose specialty is science. I live in Land O' Lakes and am the Dropout Prevention Teacher at Calusa Elementary.

I am presently working on my Master's in STEM Curriculum and Design. I am U.S. Navy veteran and desired a teaching degree after working with young men and women that were just entering the Navy right out of high school. I like tutoring because I know that sometimes schools do not or cannot give your child everything they need to succeed. There are times that they need that little extra push to get down concepts, learn a new way of learning or to just get more practice. I have seen this with my own children and would like the chance to help you and your child succeed. My tutoring method will depend on the subject I am teaching and your child's needs. I may use hands-on work, book work, free-form learning or a combination, it all depends on what best fits the student. The student is the main focus, I will meet them where they are at and work from there.

My teaching certification is from the state of Georgia and I have substituted in New York schools. I taught for a while in Georgia at a private school for students that had been pulled out of public school. These students had learning disabilities, mental disorders, and social anxieties. Some learned at a slower pace or had trouble with the slow pace of public school. We were able to custom fit the curriculum to each child's needs and help them succeed. I was the science teacher for the school; teaching elementary school up through high school. It was very rewarding seeing these students who had been "failures" in the public school suddenly gain the knowledge that they had been missing. That is why I love teaching, because I can make such a difference in children's lives.
