About Donna

I have tutored privately, and as needed, since 2008, in subjects ranging from basic mathematics, to writing and reading. I graduated from Monmouth University with a Bachelor degree in Liberal Arts, minor in Anthropology, and extensive courses in history. Now, I teach High School English from College Prep level courses to Honors courses, grades nine through eleven.
What I love most about tutoring and teaching is seeing students reach their potential. Every student is capable of excelling in an area; however, sometimes the approach of material can leave students feeling as if they are lacking in the proper tools needed to do well. With tutoring, I can provide a more focused lesson, due to the one on one environment, which allows all of my knowledge, skills, and teaching to be directly received by the student.

My background as an English Major at Monmouth University has provided me with the mindset and skills to analyze texts in multiple perspectives; therefore, I am able to explain text for those who need multiple perspectives. Taking apart and breaking down was a daily routine for all of my years at Monmouth, as well as before and after. As a high school English Teacher, I can see where a student becomes lost; ultimately allowing me to know exactly where we need to pick up and try again. Through previous experience has given me expert patience and eagerness for others to do well.

All in all, I do not find myself successful, unless I am helping others become successful. English is my passion, because in reality, no one can ever be wrong, and I can show students how to articulate their ideas, so that they will not be wrong either. Teaching is my other passion, because without the distribution of knowledge, our future is bleak.
