About Donnell

I love learning and truly enjoy passing knowledge to others. My tutoring styles include spatial which involves the use of visual aids, linguistic which focuses more on reading and writing, and interpersonal which is ideal for learning English as a second language. I love to work with people of all ages, but I specialize in working with children with ADD/ADHD. I am very patient and love working with kids that usually pose a challenge to others. I strive to make learning fun and simple and employ proven methods in education to get you or yours to the next level. My schedule is flexible, and I am willing to come to you or meet you at my office near Downtown Dallas, whichever is best for you.
I attended college as a journalism/business major and have taken several courses online with MIT. I have over 10 years experience in working with computers and software. I know fluently over 30 computer programs from Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Macintosh Systems, Pro Tools, and more. I've also assisted in developing numerous HTML, Wordpress, and PHP websites. I am also very intrigued by World and American History. I take great pride in not only educating others in these subjects but also in creating a new found interest in them. I am an avid reader and enjoy writing more than most things. I consider myself a word hound, and vocabulary is my strong suit. In short, I will work with you until you are at the level you desire.

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.

Basketball

I played 4 years of basketball during my High School years. I have coached or acted as an assistant coach on 5 different youth teams ranging in ages (7-15) in the last 8 years. One of the teams I coached on went undefeated. I love basketball and stay up to date on the NBA as well as the college teams.

Macintosh

I have been working with Macintosh systems for over a decade. I am fluent in numerous Mac applications. I currently work with a Mac G5, MacBook Pro, and the Apple IPad. Some of the programs I work with are Numbers, Pages, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and many more. I have trained numerous individuals and helped them switch completely from PC.

Photography

I have been teaching photography classes for the past 4 years. The titles of some of my classes are Master Your Lighting, DSLR Basics, and Photoshop Basics.

I also have offered one on one sessions for the past 3 years. Some of my students have gone on to have work published in a variety of notable publications.

My specialty areas are models, product, and engagement/wedding photography. I give my students both the opportunity to learn and practice the art.

Video Production

I have over a decade of experience in video production and editing. I am fluent in several softwares including Final Cut, Acid, Adobe Premiere and more. I have been tutoring students from the Art Institute for the last 7 years. My tutoring methods center around hands on experience. I allow students to use one of my high power cameras to practice shooting. I have tutored in all aspects of video production,including chroma key, key framing, finesse editing and more.

Great tutor!

Donnell patiently helped me create a photo book for gifts. I appreciated his suggestions and his knowledge of photography was very advantageous! I will definitely contact him again for future projects.
