About Donna

I have a Masters degree in Education (K-6) and 12 years classroom teaching experience. I co-led a very successful inclusion program for several of those years, so I have experience working with students with a broad range of learning abilities. I also ran a highly successful after-school reading program. Most recently I worked as a Reading Support Tutor with 3rd-5th graders to prepare them for the EOGs. Following a shoulder surgery this summer, I am currently tutoring grades K-6 students in all subjects.

Classroom teachers are required to progress through materials at a rapid rate. There are many students who are unable to keep up for wide variety of reasons. Tutoring is an excellent solution!

My philosophy is simple: build on strengths and strengthen weaknesses. Every child is good at something, so that is where I start: "Don't tell me what you don't know, tell me what you DO know!" With this technique I am able to delve through the confusion and frustration and quickly assess where to begin.

I look forward to meeting you and your child and helping him/her improve understanding and skills, grow in confidence, and increase scores.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a master's degree in education (K-6). I have 12 years classroom teaching experience. I taught 6th grade for ten years and subbed in grades K-6 for two years. Most recently I worked as a Reading Support Tutor with 3rd-5th graders to prepare them for the EOGs.
I have tutored all subjects at all elementary grade levels.

Handwriting

I have a Master's degree in Education (K-6) and 12 years' classroom teaching experience. My Bachelor's degree in Education included how to teach handwriting skills.

Phonics

I have a master's degree in education (K-6) and twelve years classroom teaching experience. In my graduate program I did clinical work with emergent readers; phonics was a consistent part of that work. In both my teaching and tutoring experiences I have taught phonics to young readers and struggling readers.

Reading

I minored in K-6 Reading in my Graduate program. Additionally, I taught reading for more than 10 years as a classroom teacher and taught an after-school reading program for struggling 5th and 6th graders for several years. Most recently I worked as a Reading Support Tutor with 3rd-5th graders to prepare them for the EOGs.

Study Skills

I have a master's degree in education (K-6) and 12 years classroom teaching experience. Before I could assign homework or tests, I had to teach my students study skills so they could be successful. When I tutor, study skills and organization are typically interwoven into my lessons.

Best tutor ever! — Ms. Donna is a true gem in the world of tutoring. I've used other tutoring sites and have had several tutors for my children, but none have even come close to Ms. Donna. My children love her and can't wait for their tutoring times. They have a lot more confidence now and I have seen a vast improvement in their homework and even class work. She gets to know each child and helps them to discover th ...
