About Donald

Hello everyone! I have an undergraduate degree in History from The University of Pittsburgh and I am currently working on my Masters in education. My mother has been a teacher for almost 30 years and she has instilled in me the importance of education for many years. I have always had a love for teaching, and I look forward to starting my tutoring career.

I have experience teaching 7th and 8th graders, but I will soon be certified to teach grades 7th through 12th grades. But, I am will to take on students who are younger or older. I have taught World History and American History in those 7th and 8th grade classrooms, but I am able to teach Social Studies, Geography, or European History as well.

My style of teaching involves challenging the students while still keeping things fun. Reading is a very important part of education and I enjoy integrating reading into all my history lessons. But reading for the sake of reading can be boring for some students, so it is crucial to set goals.

Students are given an assignment after each lesson. Some assignments will be to watch an educational video or to read an excerpt from a book or article. While reading or watching, there will be a worksheet for the student to fill out. This will teach the students to look for critical information while reading. Some students simply read the words and do not absorb the material. Completing activities while reading and immediately after reading ensures that the students will retain the information.

I am a very interactive teacher. All my lessons involve technology, reading, and activities to keep the students interested in the subject matter. I understand that some students can find history to be dull or boring. It is my job and goal to bring history to life for my students and make it seem as real as possible. If I can bring history to life and hold the attention of the students, that is half the battle... no pun intended. Then it is just a matter of teaching the material.

I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve your goals.

I have a passion for history and love to bring history to life. I enjoy all types of history from American to European to Ancient. I also have extensive experience in geography.

I am available for tutoring anytime after 7:00 pm during the week and all day on Saturday and Sunday. My base rate for in-person student teaching is $50 per hour and $35 for online student teaching.

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.

American History

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011 with a history degree with an emphasis on American History. So I am able to help you with anything you need to learn.

Basketball

I played basketball all through elementary and high school. I scored 1000 points while playing in high school and coached high schoolers for a few years once I graduated. My position was shooting guard and point guard, but able to coach any position.

Football

I played football all though junior high and high school. I played in a few all-star games and then played a couple years of college football. I have also coached elementary school payers, but willing and able to coach any ages. My position was defensive back and wide receiver but able to coach any position.

Social Studies

I have an undergrad degree from The University of Pittsburgh in History and Social Studies and I have completed 12 weeks of student teaching in a middle school classroom. I have a passion for history and social studies and I hope to pass this passion on to my students.
