I had a 20-year career in business contract negotiations where I wrote proposals and legal documents. Prior, I was an honors student in college, receiving an MBA from a prestigious business school. During my undergraduate years I took many literature classes because I enjoy reading and writing. I was offered an undergraduate fellowship in literature but pursued business.

I had a 20-year career in business contract negotiations where I wrote proposals and legal documents. Prior, I was an honors student in college, receiving an MBA from a prestigious business school. During my undergraduate years I took many literature classes because I enjoy reading and writing. I was offered an undergraduate fellowship in literature but pursued business. Now, I want to share my appreciation of literature with students struggling to complete assigned papers. I will help ensure you understand the assignment from the start, because often that is when writing can be a challenge.

I have experience tutoring all ages 1:1, with the common application and college essays. My experience includes tutoring all levels of writing, language and literature assignments as well as professional work including job applications, cover letters and resume writing.

Have you ever written a brilliant essay that doesn't quite answer the prompt? I can help you with that! We can work together to outline, or you can send me your draft in advance, and I can make suggestions. Get your work to the next level though use of textual evidence, better grammar, more interesting vocabulary and proper punctuation working with me. I can help you learn how to eliminate superfluous words and make your work concise. Please contact me to help at any point in the process where you might feel "stuck" or at the end with a B paper and want to get the A! I don't mind familiarizing myself with the literature or topic you are studying in advance to make our sessions productive.

I have years of experience working with "out of the box" differently abled thinkers with great ideas who have trouble putting them on paper. If you are dyslexic and/or have ADHD, I have been successful working with those differences in learning style. Often brilliant thinkers just need some help getting their creative ideas into writing.

Contact me for a quick response and my plan to help you make your school or work assignment a huge success!

Amazing Tutor!

I am so grateful to Donna for the help she has provided my daughter in completing college essays. She was always prepared ahead of each session and would send detailed emails after the session outlining exactly what was accomplished and suggestions for the future. Even during the busy holiday season, she made herself available. She is knowedgeable and patient, and her guidance has helped my daughter gain confidence in her writing skills in relatively short period of time. Donna has gone above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend her!

Celeste, 4 lessons with Donna

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

My son, who is a MHS sophomore year, needed some help with his LA project. I contacted Donna and asked if she was available to help my son. She answered almost immediately and we were able to set up an online session. She went above and beyond to make sure my son has his project ready to be submitted. She spent two hours (!) patiently explaining to my son what he needed to know, and she made sure he actually learned the topic and was prepared for the class (and the test he had right after the project was submitted). Donna is a great and very patient tutor. She's simply great! Thank you Donna.

Exceptional Teacher!!!

We were incredibly impressed with Donna! She was very vested in this paper and really went out of the way to prepare for each session. Even though we were in the middle of holidays, she still made this a priority. We would HIGHLY recommend her for anyone looking for a patient and detailed tutor.

Great teacher!

She did an amazing job preparing ahead of time for the lesson with my daughter. She gave great insight on how to organize and improve her paper. We look forward to utilizing her in the future as well!!

Tutor responded:

Thank you for the opportunity to work with your daughter. She is very open to suggestions and wants to put in the effort to be successful. Sometimes these assignments can get very long and confusing. When the instructions are longer than the actual piece, its time to take a step back and create a working outline. Creating the outline and a good thesis can help organize everything to correctly answer the prompt in the assignment. Her research and perspective on the assignment were perfect and I look forward to working with your daughter again to help finalize the paper before she hands it in.

college essay

Working With Donna was such a pleasure. She was kind and very assisting. She helped me plan, write, and review my college essay. I’m doing so we related a lot because of our similar life experiences that really helped me to enhance my essay. Overall she is the best.

I really enjoyed working with you Zablon and appreciated the opportunity to help you let the colleges know how hard working and ambitious you are. I am grateful for your referral to friends at school and hope you all end up at the colleges of your choice and have much success. I would be happy to work with you again when you have a college writing assignment and might need some help. Best of luck!!

College Essay Writing

Ms. Donna was instrumental in my college essay submission. I had a essay draft, she gave a constructive feedback in the first class itself. My essay was casual, but with her feedback I was able to incorporate all the missing information and now the essay is formal and ready for submission. I will definitely work with her in the future. Thank you Ms.Donna!

It was great working with you on your college essays. Your positive attitude and determination definitely came out in your writing and I was happy to help you put your best foot forward. You will be a great asset to your patients in the future and I wish you the best. Please contact me again if you need my help enhancing your writing and good luck!

Marketing

Today Donna and I worked on the presentation framework. We discussed introducing new product to the market. Donna ensured that I had good understanding and direction as we discussed the industry and market attractiveness analysis. Recommend getting assistance from the schools library to do research. We discussed strategy regarding the components of the business environment. Donna was of great help today and am looking to revisit with Donna to discuss my findings. Donna is very knowledgeable of her craft and I feel that she will help me to better understand, grow and succeed at my marketing task. Thank you Donna for your time today. I will see you soon!

Thank you for your feedback Tracy! I enjoyed meeting you and providing guidance for your MBA Marketing project. It is a hefty assignment and I applaud you for starting early in the semester, planning your approach and asking for help. I would love to work with you again on this project as your needs dictate. Good luck and please contact me again if you need me.
