About Donna

I substitute-taught for eight years in all subject and all grade areas, some years teaching for more than 150 days. I began teaching full time in a small school in Ohio, teaching ninth grade English, tenth grade English, and ninth grade science. I taught these grades quite successfully for two years before moving to Tennessee. In Tennessee I taught three levels of high school English/Literature, from the very low functioning students to the upper level college prep. students. I was in the same system for seventeen years, and also spent four of those years as department chair. In 2005 I moved to Utah, where I have been teaching British and American Literature and reading since that time.

I have tutored students after school as was needed. My philosophy of teaching is that I first teach students and then I TRY to teach them English. Each student is special and each student can learn.

I care very much that students do their best and are successful in their own way. I can help them achieve their best. I have twenty-eight years' teaching experience, and I have taught a wide variety of students with a wide range of abilities. I feel that I can help a student achieve his/her potential. I have taught all areas of English: Grammar, Literature, Reading, and Writing.

I feel that it is good for a tutor and a student to be compatible, so I would encourage contact for each of us to learn more about the other and to schedule lessons convenient to both.
