My name is Deborah and I look forward to working with you to improve your reading, writing, public speaking and English skills. I have a BA in Sociology and also have completed some work on my Masters in Adult Education. I have worked with a Fortune 25 Corporation as a Manager and Corporate Trainer for many years. My life long passion for reading, writing and continuous learning are some of the reasons I will be able to work with you/your child to improve skills in the areas listed above. I look forward to hearing from you soon so we can begin our work together.

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.

GED

I have been involved in adult learning for over 30 years. I feel the greatest gift I can give to someone is the ability to help them earn a better quality of life through improving their life skills. By helping adults earn their GED, I would be enabling them to learn to read, to improve basic math skills, to help build their self esteem, to help them empower themselves by earning a GED. What better gift can you give someone!

Public Speaking

I have a BA from Valdosta State University and have completed some master's courses in adult education. I worked for AT&T as a Corporate Trainer for over 20 years during which time I excelled in implementing adult learning principles and developed excellent communication skills. I have outstanding facilitation skills and also have been a community speaker for Emory University.








Spelling

I was a runner up for a county wide Spelling Bee in my early school days. Being an avid reader and writer, I consider myself as a "wordsmith". I am very in tune with the correct spelling and usage of words.

Study Skills

I have over 25 years of experience in the Adult Learning community. Throughout my career, I have devoted many hours in teaching adults to prepare for success through lectures and classroom learning, "real life" experiences, and group and peer learning situations. I also developed role play activities and provided one on one feedback on strengths and opportunities for improvement.
