My name is Debra, I graduated from high school then attended 2 years of college, I plan on furthering my education to become a teacher. I worked in
an after school program, which I had k-6th graders whom I supervised, helped with homework and kept them in activities. I also substituted for Butler Elementary in Florida and my first class was 3rd grade. I enjoy helping and seeing my students succeed and praising them for their accomplishments. I plan on becoming a certified teacher very soon.

My approach to helping students will consist of implementing better habits when doing homework and assignments. I will use strategies for test taking and breaking down assignments. My subjects of interest are: English, reading, spelling, study skills, and anatomy. I am also interested and have experience in ADHD, autism and dyslexia.

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.

ADD/ADHD

My 2 children are ADHD. I noticed my children had trouble staying on tasks, understanding homework, and keeping occupied without being bored easily. I found giving small tasks at a time helps them to succeed in their school work. I also helped other children who had small amounts of attention.

Autism

I have had clients in a manor home as well as home health setting with autism. We were taught specific ways of handling a child or adult with autism, by stipulating different activities to keep them busy. These activities were based on counting, some comprehension and other activities to keep clients occupied. I enjoy working with clients who have disabilities. I believe it's rewarding to see their progress, smiles and accomplishments.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have earned enough credits in college to subsitute as a teacher in the school district. I worked for an afterschool program which I helped students with homework and also subsituted for the 3rd grade. I plan to return to school for more education. I am also pursuing to take a competency test to be certified as a teacher.

Special Needs

I have worked with patients with MRDD for 7 years. Some had autism, down syndrome and many other diagnoses, but an IQ below 70 was considered MRDD. I also have privately taken care of young children with autism and learning disabilities. My work began in Sept. 1993 to present.

Study Skills

While I attended college I learned to use time wisely. I worked full time and had 2 children to take care of. My professors told me to better comprehend my studies, it would benefit to reread lessons, make index cards, highlight important information and also record my lectures. One of my professors said we all have different ways of learning. I was a written, verbal and picture type person. My professor was a verbal and written and picture type person like me. I realized I was doing better on my tests and comprehension. I believe this is why students will benefit from my tutoring.

Grades/Understanding Have Already Improved in Short Time — Debra started tutoring my 13 year old son a couple months ago when his first report card came out and there were 3 f's. One in math, science, and reading. We had just moved to a new school system specifically because it was better and did not want to start off his new year in a new place on the wrong foot academically. So I Googled tutors in our area not really knowing what to expect because this ...
