About Donna

Greetings,

If you are looking for a tutor, you have a goal in mind. I can help you to reach your goal. My goal, as a tutor, is to help students discover their potential and to help them gain the language skills they need in order to achieve that potential. In the past thirty years I have helped students ages 5-20 experience success.

I am a highly qualified status educator with a BA in English and Education, thirty years of teaching experience in six states and two countries, teaching certification in four states and a perfect score on the English Language and Literature Praxis Test. I have won The Robert A Wyatt Love of Teaching Award, numerous writing awards, and have had a novel, magazine and news articles and poetry published. Most recently I have been a Subject Matter Expert working to develop online English courses so I am very familiar with the Idaho Core and Common Core Reading and Writing Standards. During past classroom teaching experiences, I have taught American, English and World Literature, 6-12th grade English and Language Arts,Creative Thinking, Creative Writing, College Entrance Test Prep Classes, Expository Writing, Grammar, Journalism, Remedial Reading and Study Skills. Currently, I teach 7th grade English and 11th grade American Literature through an award winning online school.

With a proven track record of successful teaching, I tutor face to face because I like helping people experience success. Not everyone learns in the same way. I come equipped with many tools for learning and it is my honor as a tutor to help you discover what works for you. I can help you study for the BIG tests and/or learn to increase your reading comprehension and writing skills. Yes, I have taught for many years. No, I am not boring. Together, we can get it done!

Sincerely,
Mrs. W.

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.

Study Skills

i taught at-risk students in a Study Skills class for three years in a middle school. I also have tutored students so that their test taking skills improved. For two years I also worked after school in the homework lab where I helped students learn how to follow directions, cultivate strong study habits and to complete assignments. Additionally, I have tutored students in reading and math.
