Donald graduated from Adelphi University with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and a Master of Arts in Adolescent Education, before completing his Master of Fine Arts in Writing at City College of New York. For the past eight years at MTP, Donald has worked with students one-on-one, in small groups, in the classroom, and online, helping them with the SAT, ACT, English Regents, and college application essays. He teaches SAT and ACT classes year-round at our centers, local schools, and online. He has had great success with students thanks to his educational background and his enthusiastic passion for teaching. His years of experience affords him a great deal of knowledge about the SAT and ACT; if you have a question about one of the tests, he knows the answer. His deep knowledge of the tests makes him an outstanding tutor, but it’s probably not a good sign for his social life. Donald is also an Instructor of English literature and writing at SUNY Old Westbury and in his free time is probably writing, reading or watching the show LOST for the hundredth time.
