Hola!

My name is Ms. Donna M. I am a native of Loris, SC. I graduated from Coker University 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 as well as a Certificate in Global TESOL from the University of Georgia. I have been teaching/tutoring for the last 13 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 English and I truly enjoy teaching and helping others.

Excellent Teacher!

Donna was great! I look forward to my future lessons. She is going to make learning Spanish fun, which is what I need.

Awesome tutor

Ms. Donna is a very caring, patient and smart tutor. She takes her time to get to know her clients style to help them reach their academic goals.

Vilma, 41 lessons with Donna

Wonderful experience!

Donna M. was amazing with my son. She was patient and encouraged him through the whole session. He is so proud of himself that he can’t stop talking about his new tutor!

Sheikish, 46 lessons with Donna

Extremely nice, patient and knowledgeable

I hired Ms. Donna simply to have someone practice my conversational Spanish with and she was phenomenal. She not only practiced conversational Spanish with me but she took time to review grammar with me to ensure that I was speaking and writing correctly. She has several years speaking Spanish and she knows the language very well. She was very patient with me and easy to learn from. I hope to use her again in the future.

Beyond Reliable

Donna has taken the fear out of Spanish 3 for my child. She encourages her while reinforcing what is taught in class. She goes out of her way to help my daughter and makes the time fly because of her warm and gentle spirit. She’s a heaven sent gift.

Karyn, 59 lessons with Donna

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor.

Donna taught me how to identifying groups of words that have the same meaning as one word. We completed an activity identifying the appropriate endings for words, focusing on -tion. We completed a SAT Matching game defining words and discussing pronunciation. Awesome Job!

Lalita, 1 lesson with Donna

Donna M. is a great tutor.

Donna is teaching me the short Letter A sound and the long letter A sound. I feel comfortable with her and she is doing a good job. And I’m happy to learn more from her.

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

Donna tutored my son in Spanish. She was very patient w/my 14yo...easy going, knowledgeable and very patient.. Used great teaching tools and provided him with practice sheet, and online activities to practice and prepare for his upcoming quiz...As a typical teen he was very apprehensive about working w/a tutor as wanted to bring his grade up on his own...Donna immediately helped break down his barriers and made it very easy for him to jump right in get to work!
