About Donna


Bio

Hi, I’m. Donna. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, a teacher’s Diploma in Education, a Master’s degree in Education and an MBA.
I see tutoring as a means to fine tune and hone any skill. My students will become self-confident as they acquire the skills to analyze problems and find the correct solutions.
Mathematical problems are like a mystery novel..... there is a question to be answered - akin to a mystery/puzzle to be solved. There are clues that need to be elicited...

Hi, I’m. Donna. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, a teacher’s Diploma in Education, a Master’s degree in Education and an MBA.
I see tutoring as a means to fine tune and hone any skill. My students will become self-confident as they acquire the skills to analyze problems and find the correct solutions.
Mathematical problems are like a mystery novel..... there is a question to be answered - akin to a mystery/puzzle to be solved. There are clues that need to be elicited to solve the mystery. I like to keep my students engaged with the notion of tutoring as an exciting adventure that takes us to the end of the novel.
In addition, I strongly promote the idea of “practise makes perfect!” Teaching the concept, reinforcing the learning, and repeated practicing of the skill are the tenets of my 3-legged “tutoring-stool!”
As an undergraduate Physics Major, Math was a necessary component of my degree. I have taught Physics & Maths to students aged 11 -18 for nearly 20 years. Under the umbrella of “Math,” will include Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry. I have successfully taught & tutored students who achieved high grades for “O” Level Physics & Math.
I have hands-on knowledge of EXCEL which I use daily as a business tool'
As a Physics teacher, I excelled at bringing life & meaning to abstract ideas. I also use the mathematics of physics to align many concepts with the student’s familiar world.
