About Donna

I would love to help you succeed in the areas with which you are struggling. I have recently finished homeschooling my youngest child and need someone else to teach! I am passionate about proper grammar and am an avid reader (or perhaps voracious is a better word). I can help you succeed with your writing assignments or understanding that tricky novel you have been assigned in literature class. I also have editing and proofreading experience in case you just want someone to look over that paper before you hand it in.

I have a degree in English from Elizabethtown College. I homeschooled for 17 years and taught writing and literature classes at my co-op. I have also been employed as a freelance proofreader for the past 10 years. Proofreading and grammar are my passions and I love helping people to understand the reasons behind the rules. My approach to tutoring is to use a person's current ability to build an ever-increasing knowledge of a subject. Slow and steady wins the race!

I can either travel to your location or you can come to my quiet home where I have an office that we can use to study. I've been working as a youth director for the past 6 years. I look forward to working on your English skills! Give me a call.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

I have been working as a youth director for the past 15 years and in a paid position for the last 6. I currently have a Youth Ministry Certification from Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary. I teach Sunday school for youth and adults and have also given sermons and led church services.
