I have over forty years of teaching and writing experience, from middle school writing, to high school, to the University level, including professional and business writing. I served as the Writing Specialist for the Pennsylvania's Department of Education and also was a founding member of the Pennsylvania Writing Project. My work on my Ph.D. took me to understanding composition at it's most basic level, and I studied carefully the advent of writing as a science and as a fundamental form of expression. My thesis centered around the development of grammars and the development of the paragraph. I've received many awards, positions, and commendations for my expertise and success of teaching writing at all levels.

The first session with Matthew, I can tell things are going to be okay. This makes me feel better; I could say right off the bat; he knows what he is teaching.

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.

Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

"When I first started writing my screenplay for a short story I'm directing and producing, I had a limited time to write, direct, edit and submit to a "once a year" film festival in Orlando Florida. I ran into a bunch of obstacles, from using the correct grammar, to punctuation's, spelling and inconsistencies in the story line. She was very clear and concise when she spoke. I don't know what she did but her method of teaching allowed me to relax and open my mind, and allowed me to absorb and remember every single writing technique she's given me. I am proud to say that my short film was finished in time to enter the festival. Thanks to Jonita it is now 3 months later and I have finished my fourth short screenplay, now starting my fifth. She is just amazing, I'm so happy I found her to work with me."
