About Donna

I have been teaching for many years. I started out teaching adults in a post-secondary school, then earned my master's degree and started teaching high school students. I now work with middle school students, grades 6-8. I have worked for more than 10 years with students who are either living in a high-poverty urban environment or in rural areas where poverty is a problem; I know that the ability to succeed academically is directly tied to the stress that encounters a person every day. My strengths are life skills, business subjects, writing and/or English, and history/social studies.

I have been tutoring as well as doing home bound instruction for many years. The thing I enjoy most about tutoring is the personal connection. When you work one on one with a student, it is easy to see what exactly he/she needs to learn in order to firmly grasp the information that needs to be learned.

I have an undergraduate minor in English literature. As a certified teacher in business and distributive education, I taught Gregg shorthand for many years, which requires extraordinary understanding of spelling, grammar and mechanics. Having taught keyboarding and computer operations, I can spot a typo a mile away!

If you are looking for someone to help you with your educational journey, know that I have been teaching life skills for many years and you will not find a person who will be more invested in your success than me. There is nothing more heart warming than having one of my students come up to me years later and tell me how what I taught them has helped them succeed in their life. I believe that there are those who deliver information, and then there are those who become a partner with a person's journey to a new life. That's me.
