About Donna

Hola!

My name is Ms. Donna M. I am a native of Loris, SC. I graduated from Coker College with a B.A. in Spanish and completed course work there in Elementary Education as well. I have also earned a Professional Certificate in Spanish/English Medical Interpretation from the University of Georgia. I have been teaching/tutoring for the last 10 years and counting.

I began teaching middle school Spanish. I taught for one year in the middle school and have taught in the high school setting for over 5 years. I truly enjoy teaching students as well as others the Spanish language and the culture. I specialize in all aspects of the language including reading, writing, speaking and developing listening skills.

My experience as a tutor includes assisting high school and elementary students as well as college students and adults. I was also a Spanish tutor/instructor in the UPWARD Bound Program for 3 years. I also provide interpreting and translation services.

I truly enjoy the Spanish language and teaching and assisting others in learning and understanding the Spanish language as well as the English language. Foreign language studies help you to understand your native language better. Let me help you be the best foreign language student you can be. Do not spend another minute struggling, but let me help you. My students will let you know, that as a teacher/tutor, I do my best to make sure that they completely understand. I love Spanish and I truly enjoy teaching and helping others.

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.

ADHD

As a professional educator, I have taught quite a few children with different needs. I know and understand the importance of differentiating instruction especially for students that may be diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I have taken courses to help me reach those students and to help keep them focused.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students in the Elementary grade levels. I work with my church's after school program to help students with their homework and any other problems that they may have. I am proficient in English at the Elementary level particularly vocabulary, grammar, phonics and writing skills.

English

As a Spanish Teacher, I am a dual teacher of the English and Spanish languages. You cannot teach one without understanding the components of the other. I can assist you with all aspects of the English language.

Reading

As a language teacher, I am well versed in the English and Spanish language, specifically syntax, grammar, phonics, sentence structure and comprehension.

Spanish

I specialize in all aspects of Spanish including language and culture. I enjoy the language and enjoy helping others to understand aspects of the language.

Writing

As a Spanish teacher, I have a deep understanding of the Spanish language as well as the English language. Syntax and grammar are very important in both languages. I am experienced with assisting students in writing and proofreading essays for class, college applications, etc. as well as assisting students with other writing needs.
