About Dona

I live in Decatur and am a graduate of Agnes Scott College. I work full time weekdays but am available for tutoring most evenings and weekends. I tutor primarily K-8th grade in most subjects but can tailor teaching to what is necessary. I also tutor adult literacy, helping with reading, phonics, etc.

I have tutored students ranging from first grade to adults and have enjoyed every age in between. I try to make learning fun and will make every effort to help improve the student's situation. I am happy to work with parents and teachers to adapt lessons to the curriculum.

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.

ACT English

I have a BA degree from Agnes Scott college and have tutored high school students in readiness for this test. I have also tutored adults.

ACT Reading

I have taught reading for over 20 years, from phonetic pronunciation to reading comprehension. This is actually my favorite subject to teach and probably the one for which I am most qualified. I have a BA degree from Agnes Scott college.

English

I graduated from Agnes Scott College with a BA degree, having completed four years of college English. I have tutored English to elementary, high school and college students.

Grammar

I have tutored English and grammar to high school and elementary school students and it is one of my favorite subjects to teach. I have a BA degree from Agnes Scott College.

Phonics

I tutored adult literacy for about 10 years in the past. We used the Laubach method. I taught phonics and reading. We had four levels and I taught all four. Phonics and reading are what I have tutored the most and I really enjoy it.

Reading

I have enjoyed tutoring reading and spelling to adults and elementary school children for about 20 years. I have used phonics to help with reading and spelling. I have had extra training in the Laubach method for reading and continue to use it in some cases.

Spelling

Spelling has been one of my favorite subjects when I was in school and in my tutoring experience. I love sounds and the use of phonics to simplify spelling. I taught adult literacy for many years and I have prepared elementary students for the CRCT in this and related subjects.

Vocabulary

I am a college graduate with a BA degree from Agnes Scott College. I have tutored elementary and high school level students as well as adults in improving their reading, spelling and vocabulary skills. I have also coached students in preparation for the CRCT.
