About Donna

As a certified educator since 1995, I have had the opportunity to teach and tutor children of all ages. I am certified in the areas of Special Education K-12, which includes all cognitive areas, Elementary Education P-6, and Social Studies. I have taught on the elementary, middle and high school levels, therefore I consider myself highly qualified when it comes to interacting with our youth. Teaching Special Education has added value to my ability to differentiate instruction and cater it to the needs of each student, so that they are successful.

As a tutor my goals are to first develop a positive, mutually respectful relationship between myself, the parents and the student. Once that is accomplished, I then assess each student to determine their present levels of performance in the given subject area. Knowing the student's present levels enables me to design instruction that targets specific areas needing remediation or more time on task. Using different instructional models such as computer generated instruction, games, online quizzes and real world comparisons helps to engage the student which leads to greater retention of information and greater success in that subject area.

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.

Special Needs

I am highly qualified to tutor special needs, because I am certified in Exceptional Education P-12. During my 10 year teaching tenure, I have taught all grades and exceptionalities. I am well versed in the use of differentiated instruction and behavior modification.
