About Donna


Bio

I am interested in helping students succeed. I think learning should be a pleasant experience, not a chore. Being able to enhance a student's reading and writing skills is very rewarding. I tutor students of all ages, from Pre-K to adult. I have tutored numerous ESL students and enjoy helping people learn to speak English.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English with two years' work towards a Master's. I also have a 2-year language certificate in Italian, and would welcome the opportunity to...

I am interested in helping students succeed. I think learning should be a pleasant experience, not a chore. Being able to enhance a student's reading and writing skills is very rewarding. I tutor students of all ages, from Pre-K to adult. I have tutored numerous ESL students and enjoy helping people learn to speak English.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English with two years' work towards a Master's. I also have a 2-year language certificate in Italian, and would welcome the opportunity to tutor students in beginning or intermediate Italian.

I was a volunteer tutor for Tulsa Public Schools and have OSBI as well as FBI Fingerprint background clearance, last updated 1/2011. Other references are available upon request.

As a board member of Nimrod Poetry and Literature magazine, I read short stories submitted for acceptance into the publication.

While in college, I tutored students with low SAT scores and/or low grade averages who had been accepted into college on a probationary basis. This included tutoring in reading, basic grammar and verb conjugation, as well as spelling and sentence construction.

I would like the opportunity to help you or your child. Please contact me for further information.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Art History

I minored in Art History in college and have always had a strong interest in art. I spent a lot of time in Europe in museums and studying with various groups--my main interest areas are Italian Renaissance Art-- especially Piero della Francesco, Giotto, and Florentine artists, as well as modern abstract art and collage. During my time in Paris I was fortunate enough to get to know several gallery owners whose collections were of particular interest. I've done research papers on various art movements as well as specific artists.

ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

I have tutored students in ESL for several years. My students have come from Colombia, India, Greece, Bulgaria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and India. I have had great success working with them on grammar, reading comprehension and speaking. I have worked with several on preparation for the TEOFL test, which they passed with flying colors. I have great patience and empathy for non-English speakers. and realize the difficulty of learning another language. I try to find the areas where they are weakest, and strengthen those. I also like to work on pronunciation, since learning a language is no good unless people can understand you when you speak it.

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored children ages 5 through 6th grade in subjects such as reading, phonics, spelling and grammar. To me this is the most important age for children learning to read. If they don't love reading by the time they reach middle school, it seems to be an uphill struggle from then on out. Instilling the love of reading is the most rewarding thing a teacher can do. Helping young students learn to spell and pronounce words takes away a lot of the fear and insecurity they sometimes develop if they haven't met the reading level of their peers.

Study Skills,

Study Skills

My approach to helping students with their study skills is two-fold. First, I help them organize their homework and assignments on a daily basis, by subject. Then I do an overview of the subjects in which they are weakest and strongest, ranking them. Depending on the age of the student, together we work on a plan to improve the weaker subjects thus spending more time on them, while maintaining the subjects in which the student is already doing well. We then decide on a plan of action for each subject, allotting a certain amount of time per day, to each subject. We organize materials according to subject: if a history exam is coming up, we organize the material covered by date, then by event and corresponding result or impact. We compile a sort of chart, so that the student can see the importance of each historical event and its subsequent impact on the country or the world, whichever it is the student is studying. For literature we do much the same thing--start with dates and authors, make a sort of chart and fit each writer into the broader movement and/or philosophy, so that the student can visualize the author's place in literature and identify the movement in which the author was a part. It's impossible for a student(I believe, anyway)to memorize facts and dates, works of literature, without having a context in which to place them. This applies obviously, to an older student. For younger students and depending on each student's need, I try to help them organize the important elements of spelling, reading and writing. I think it's important for young students to begin acquiring synonyms as quickly as possible, to build vocabulary at an early age. This is a hard topic to cover broadly, since it depends so much on the student, the student's age and the type of material he or she is currently studying.

ACT Reading

After we have identified specific areas where the student needs help, we break these down, starting with the most crucial areas first. If it is grammar, for example, we review the rules that are applicable, then I construct a list of "sample" questions for the student to practice on. We do this with each section of the test until the student feels confident that he/she knows the material. Then we proceed to do several versions of the ACT practice test, timed and untimed. If there are still problem areas we return to those sections for further review. So far I have not had one student who didn't raise his/her grade by at least 20%, and most raised their grades by considerably more than that.

I have studied piano for over 15 years, and am proficient in reading music, playing classical as well as modern piano selections. I have taught children as well as adults how to read music and to play. Even if you have never had a lesson, it is possible to master the basics in a relatively short period of time. Playing the piano is a richly rewarding experience and engenders confidence at any age. I love music and enjoy helping others to learn to read and play it. I feel music helps keep the mind quick and active, allows the student to use his or her brain in a completely different way.

Donna is very caring and professional

Donna truly cares about helping my son. My son takes a while to warm up to new people and she has done well to make friends while getting him to tackle his studies. I appreciate her thoughtfulness and patience when it comes to getting to know my son and allowing him time to open up. And Donna is great at observing areas that need extra help and offers creative techniques to keep them focused.

Wonderful Tutor!

We are very, very pleased with Donna O. My son leaves each session very enthusiastic and full of helpful and interesting information and test taking tips. She is very easy to talk to, engaging, and an excellent source of inspiration for further study. I would give her the highest rating.
