About DonnaMarie

I am professionally certified in two states for elementary and early childhood education and hold a masters degree in Library Science with an emphasis on children and youth services and database research and instruction. I have been a classroom teacher for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade and have taught a concentration in 6th grade for reading and language arts. I have previously been certified as a GT (gifted and talented) instructor and have previous private tutoring experience. I have also coached educators for state licensing tests and have 7 years in school and public librarianship. I enjoy working one-on-one and have been highly successful in assisting students to reach their potential and enjoy the journey to getting there. I have a passion for all learning but prefer to teach reading and language arts since that is where I have the most experience. I have a mid-range fee for tutoring and include parents in the tutoring process as well so that the student and parents are working together to achieve the success on a long-term permanent basis. I hope you will consider my tutoring services for your child!

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.

Common Core

I have been teaching with the Common Core standards for the past 4 years and have used them in my lesson construction and implementation for instruction.

I have also taught teachers the use of common core in their instruction for all aspects of Literacy.
