About Donna

Hi. I have been teaching English for about 15 years. I have a strong background in grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing. I have taught all ages from middle school all the way to college. I am comfortable helping high school students with SAT, ACT, GED, and ASVAB testing as well. I can help students who struggle with reading comprehension and those who struggle with writing essays. I can also help students who struggle with learning disabilities.

Here are some fun facts about me: I have studied and lived in Salamanca, Spain and love to travel. I have two beagles and three cats. Why? I don't know. I guess you can say that I am a sucker for a cute face. I enjoy blogging and reading for fun. What? That doesn't sound fun to you? Most importantly, I enjoy helping others read and write successfully. So, if I can help you, let me know.

I have a bachelor's degree in English Education and a master's degree in writing. I have also taught for 15 years.

Again, I enjoy helping others over their learning hurdles in English. If I can help you, please let me know.

SSAT Tutoring

We met Dorothy to start SSAT tutoring for my son. She was punctual with a great personality and I love the way she connect with my son. Dorothy articulated clearly the approach in tackling the SSAT and though is quite early in the tutoring to provide detail review thus far we are pleased with what she offered.
