About Donna

I have been a teacher for 16 years. I've taught college level courses at community colleges, universities, and tutoring programs. I've taught everything from sixth grade English Language Arts to 200 level college writing courses.

For the past eight years, I've been teaching in South Korea for the Department of Defense. I teach "military brats." While here, I did college prep tutoring for students attending International School. For them, I tutored in everything from vocabulary to science and Spanish.

I'm committed. I love working one on one with students. And, I what I love about tutoring is being able to teach to individual learning styles and help you experience what has motivated me my entire life--a love of learning.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Writing from a private, high end college with a minor in Spanish. I was the editor of a poetry magazine and publication for two years. I have taught grammar for 16 years. And, as for proofreading, vocabulary, and writing, that has been something I have been doing since high school. I have been an freelance graphic designer and desktop publisher, which included publishing magazines, newsletters, and books. I am a published writer-cookbooks and poetry.

If you're looking for someone who can help you get ready for college, help you become a better writer, or simply help you prepare for a career I am the person for you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook and its various versions since it was first published for us. I have taken several competency tests in all Microsoft Suite programs and achieved expert level.

Phonics

I am a reading specialist for Lincoln County School District. I passed the Praxis Reading Specialist exam in October 2015. I currently teach K-8 reading at a public school.

Study Skills

I have been a tutor across various subject areas for the last two years. Also, I've been teaching for 16 years, which includes all levels and diversities of students. I'm trained in AVID study skills, and I'm trained in learning style inventories and diverse learning styles.

Writing

I was an Adjunct writing professor for five years at two different community colleges. I have a BA in writing. I have completed two Master's programs heavy in writing. And, I'm a published poet.
