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.

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.

Donna is helping strengthen my math skills for the GRE. She is extremely patient and has an amazing way of breaking down the problem piece by piece so you can understand it fully.

Donna is a great, patient tutor!

Our son Jeffrey is 8 years old and has had some difficulty focusing. Donna has a bunch of tools in her toolbox that she uses masterfully to get our son to pay attention. She teaches him both writing and math and he has made great progress with her. Highly recommended.

She gets it!

My daughter just had her first lesson with Donna and it was a success! Donna explained things in a way that my daughter could easily understand. Her style made everything seem so much clearer and easier to grasp! Donna was right on time and got to work right away. Thank you so much! We are looking forward to the next sessions!
