About Don


Bio

Since retiring from college teaching, I have done substitute teaching (Spanish, French, math, science, etc.) at the Wilton Schools (Wilton High School, Middlebrook and elementary schools). At Berlitz Language Centers and on my own I tutor students (U.S. and foreign-born) of all ages in ESL, Spanish, French and math and coach students in study skills and test preparation for the SAT and TOEFL (using Princeton Review books). I have won awards for outstanding teaching.

Great for learning French and studying math

Thank you so much for tutoring me. I have learned so much about the French culture and math equations. Singing songs with you was lot of fun. I loved it when you shared your books with me. My favorite was Asterix & Obelix – the one with the magic potion. Thank you again for teaching me so much. I will forever treasure your knowledge.
