About Donald

Having lived in Santiago, Chile for 2 years, I have fallen in love with the Spanish culture and language. During these 2 years, I worked all day, every day, to find and teach people about better ways to live their lives. From this experience, I have become very adaptable to teach according to the needs, and learning methods, of the student, because we all do not learn the same way, and we all have different needs.

When I teach, I always start by first, finding out where the student is in their comprehension of the topic. Next, I form a teaching plan to teach according to how the student learns best. After that, I set goals for what I want the student to be able to achieve by a certain date (or for school work, follow the curriculum and rubric that the school teacher has set). Finally I set lesson plans according to the student's needs and teach so the student gains a full understanding of the topic.

Specifically, I love to teach children, while I have also taught adults, I love seeing how younger kids feel when they finally understand something that they have been struggling to learn. When the idea "clicks" in their mind and they want to learn more. Even though it seems that often their focus is not as strong as adults, I have learned how to adjust the lesson so that they are always interested in what is being taught.

NOTE: When teaching a minor, I require that an adult always be within eye contact or hearing distance of the lesson.

Finally, I'm a local here from Las Vegas, born and raised. I graduated with an honors diploma and 4.0 weighted GPA. I am an Eagle Scout, and was my high-school debate captain for 2 years. I will be entering as a college freshman in January 2013. I know that if we work together, you will see a great improvement in the comprehension of the topic being taught.
