Study Skills

I have been teaching students with all types of disabilities for over 20 years. A large part of working with students with special needs is teaching study skills. It is important to emphasize organizational techniques for studying. It is also important to understand a particular student's learning style. No two students are alike, and what works for one will not necessarily work for others. For study skills, organization and an understanding of how the student learns are the most important pieces. I can evaluate a student's learning style and work with the student to create a learning and study plan that will meet his or her individual needs.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have been teaching special education for over 20 years. I have worked with students with Autism on all parts of the spectrum. I am very familiar with their needs. Students with autism need routine and familiarity. They are visual and concrete learners, so they need pictures and hands on activities. They have difficulty generalizing concepts, so they need practice in many different settings. They need to feel comfortable with people in order to work with them. They struggle with social and interpersonal skills, so they often need help in these areas as well. I hold a master's degree in special education. I am an adjunct professor of special education at Rutger's University. I have done extensive research into autism and how to work with students with this condition. I understand their needs and behaviors. I have the experience, skills, and knowledge to work with these students. I can teach them the academics that they need in a visual, hands on way. I can deal with their behaviors calmly and easily, so as to not accelerate any behavior problems. I understand their social skill deficits, so I have techniques to help them understand subtle cues. I can rephrase questions that are difficult in a way that helps them relate to the topics.
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I am a special education teacher. I have been teaching students with all types of learning disabilities for many years. Students with dyslexia need reinforcement of sound-letter patterns and combinations. They often have strong comprehension skills, so context clues are a strong strategy for determining unknown words. They also struggle with spelling. When teaching these students, it is important to use positive reinforcement and encouragement, in order to keep them motivated.

I have worked with students in residential, self contained, and inclusion settings. I have worked with students with learning disabilities, healh impairments, emotional disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and autism. I have used many different teaching strategies and can target strategies to meet individual needs.

Great tutor

Teaches great techniques and makes understanding difficult problems easier. Also she is very flexible with scheduling. She has done a great job in helping on both the math and reading sections.

Brendan, 6 lessons with Donna

Patient and adaptable tutor

Donna has been working with my 6th grader on Language Arts and Math. Donna is very flexible in her teaching approach; she easily adapts her lesson plan to address concepts that are being taught in school, and is able transition back to her planned lesson. Great job.

Patrice, 86 lessons with Donna

Knows how to work together and is patient

SAT help, especially with the math portion, and Donna is very knowledgeable at picking up where the gaps are with the student and concentrating on them. Very, accommodating with times and communication for sessions.

Teri, 16 lessons with Donna

Knowledgeable and Patient

This was my son’s first tutoring lesson ever. He wasn’t sure what to expect and was anxious. Donna made him comfortable and patiently explained how he would benefit from the time. He got it. It was a relief to see. He’s ADHD and is struggling with his first year in middle school.

Linda, 5 lessons with Donna

Cindy, 12 lessons with Donna

Very friendly, has patience

Donna and I went over test strategies for the Praxis 5038 test. She gave me ides on how to study for the test and then patiently waited while I struggled through some practice questions. We are going to meet again.

Kim, 3 lessons with Donna

Knowledgeable in test prep

Donna worked with my daughter on SSAT prep. We only had a couple weeks to prepare and Donna was very flexible with her schedule to tutor several times in a short amount of time. My daughter was very pleased with Donna...she gave test hints, reviewed problem areas and gave review sections. Would definitely use again.
