About Deborah

Dear Students:
Need to navigate through the scary parts of science, the "Monster of Math" and the miasma of music from elementary to secondary and beyond? My methods include taking you into the next step past the facts into their application and daily use. Clear and explicit techniques for writing in all three areas will form an essential part of my instruction. Success, as evidenced by my teaching credential will give you the foundation a lifelong love of learning and applicable work ethic.

I am one of the best at exploring science through experimentation and can promise you an exciting experience with your labs or your current science fair project. My Master's degree in Health and Safety along with 36 years of teaching, coaching and tutoring experience will enhance the guidance I can provide. Our time together will be fun, game oriented, and computer literate. Math practice, using the correct tools and proven techniques under my direction will ensure your success. And if music is your passion, I can open a whole new world, as they say, "From Bach to Rock" or from the uniquely American "Jazz to Razz." I look forward to becoming part of your academic journey to success.

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.

Music History

I have taught music history and appreciation for 14 years at Providence High School in Burbank, Ca. I am especially sensitive to music as a cultural connecting tool and have used my music history prowess to move students into lifelong learning and love of all music especially the historical music of Bach, Mozart, Handel, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky.


I have been a keyboard specialist for over 40 years. I have used my talent to accompany solo singers as well as large groups of over 150. I have taught and participated in two piano recitals including the popular Liszt Rhapsodies. I specialize also in teaching reading and appropriate practicing techniques.

Sight Singing

I have taught choir for 14-plus years. During that time I was able to sing all four parts of the music- Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass- on sight. My choirs received numerous gold medals including the top prize at a festival in San Diego through Heritage Festival organization out of Salt Lake City Utah. In addition to excellent sight singing, I have an amazing ear.

Study Skills

I am a 36 year veteran of the teaching profession with advanced teaching skills in Science and Math. I have experience in teaching and developing science fair projects and am excellent with hands on teaching. I can teach effective study skills techniques through games and computer info as well as the standard note-taking, compilation and review techniques.

Voice (Music)

I am an experienced choir director with keyboard experience. I have successfully guided multiple choirs to numerous gold medals in competition through Music in the Parks and Heritage Festivals. I am adept at singing all parts and recognizing and adjusting intonation problems. I have coached and accompanied many students singing in auditions for musical roles as well as college entrance.


I am currently a 30 year official with the San Fernando Volleyball Officials association. I have coached volleyball on the high school and Jr. High Levels. I am especially adept at the basics of the pass, set and spike (hit). I can coach in all the receive and serve formations currently used by the successful programs and I have multiple connections to teams and opportunities through my association.
