About Donna

As a former math teacher at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire, I've continued my interest in math throughout my career. I've tutored math at various levels and have worked with students who had various problems.

My math background includes real world experience having been a mathematician for a major defense contractor. My work was primarily in the intelligence gathering area. It was so exciting to see "math in action."

I believe it is key to make students feel comfortable with studying math and to make the tutoring sessions enjoyable. I try to make math relevant and have students use math in everyday problems.

Do you know how many careers require good math skills? You'll be surprised!

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored various students in Algebra I. I believe if a student can grasp Algebra I and have a positive attitude toward math, then he/she will be successful in future math courses.

Algebra 2

Building on the basics of Algebra 1, Algebra 2 expands and adds to these mathematical concepts. I would want to check your child's skills with Algebra 1 before going to Algebra 2.

It's important to relate concepts to 'real world' situations, especially in those areas with which the student has particular difficulty.

Knowing the textbooks used will also be helpful.

Bible Studies

Key areas to be examined include:
* the five books of the Old Testament
* the four Gospels in the New Testament
* Paul's letters to the Corinthians and Romans.
* the Book of Isaiah as it relates to the New Testament.

I studied the Bible in college (12 credits in Theology) and have done independent study. I've taught religious education to primary, junior high and high school students.

Computer Engineering

I have experience working with requirements analysis, design, implementation, integration and testing. The standards I've worked with include various procedures defined by the Department of Defense and the IEEE.

Computer Science

I have a software engineering background with 25 plus years of experience. I worked on real-time, signal processing applications that involved various computers and hardware (some custom made).

Training is important to me and I've put together courses for those with little to no understanding of the 'computer world'.

Elementary Math

Patience when tutoring at this level is key. Student are often in fear of math. Overcoming this fear takes time. Making math fun is important.
