About Donna

I love working with students and watching them improve and reach their goals. I began teaching in the 80's and have continuously worked with students in a variety of settings: public school, private school, homeschool co-op, school of ballet, summer day camp, and scouting programs. Two of my children have graduated homeschool and are succeeding in college. One child graduated high school early with 6 hours of college credit. My next child is on track to graduate high school early with 12 college credits. Teaching is like pushing a swing for a toddler and hearing them laugh and call for more. Seeing students learn processes that bring the desired outcome, see improvement and strive for more is rewarding to watch and an honor to play a part.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Reading Instruction and 29 years experience in teaching, tutoring, and mentoring.
I have additional training in Marilyn Burns Mathematics techniques and other hands on programs I love reading and new words. Making vocabulary exciting and useful helps kids retain new words. Everyone needs legible handwriting! Consistent height, spacing, respect for the baseline and proper formation are the elements of tidy handwriting. Whether you want beautiful cursive or neat print effective practice is key.
I look forward to working with your children to improve their understanding of content and performance in school. Contact me to schedule a tutoring session.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Reading Instruction from Texas Christian University and 20 years experience with home education. I have taught academics in public and private school as well as a variety of enrichment classes in a homeschool coop setting, scouting programs and advanced classical ballet.

Handwriting

As part of my training in Language Arts instruction I went through handwriting evaluation both on paper and on display boards. I have taught hundreds of children to write in cursive and evaluate their writing to make improvements for better appearance on the page.

Homeschool

I have graduated two children from homeschool high school to go on to college and make terrific grades. One child graduated early with 6 hours college credit. My next student is on track to graduate early with more college credits earned than the previous student. My youngest child is still in elementary school, which helps me stay in touch with early education needs. I have 10 years experience tutoring homeschool children outside my family in First grade through eighth. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Reading Instruction from Texas Christian University and 20 years experience with home education.

Reading

I have a BS in Elementary Education degree from Texas Christian University. I have taught in public schools, private schools, home school coops and private tutoring for almost 30 years, including Reading.
