All of Deborah’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Deborah’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ACT English

I received a CEAS in English in March 2011 and have been tutoring students in language, reading, writing, NJ ASK/SAT/ACT/PRAXIS test preparation for WyzAnt for over two years. I also taught English for two months as a maternity leave replacement at the Magnet High School in Scotch Plains, NJ, in October 2012. I've got a passion for language and literature and an insight into how students learn best. I enjoy watching clients progress and have helped many improve their skills, grades, and test scores.

College Counseling

I'm a certified English teacher and published journalist with twenty-five years experience. I've helped many students write imaginative and concise college app essays which reflect their voice and words. Here's my approach: I interview students to capture the highlights of their lives and offer insightful essay writing strategies. Once clients prepare a draft of their essay, I edit their writing, and working together, we create a memorable essay to impress college administrators.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with many students from grades 3 through 6 and helped them improve writing, reading, and language arts skills. I'm a certified, experienced English teacher and professional journalist with extensive knowledge of quality children's literature and NJ curriculum standards. I develop engaging lessons which motivate students to learn and make connections between texts and their own lives. I teach to the multiple intelligences, varying skills and interests of all my students to facilitate success.

Praxis

I am qualified to prepare students for the 0041 Eng Lang Lit Comp Content Knowledge Praxis test needed for certification to teach English in grades K-12. It is a two-hour test with 120 questions in three major content areas: Literature and Understanding Text, Language and Linguistics, Composition and Rhetoric. I took the exam in January 2011 and passed by over twenty points. I could provide essential coaching, timing and sample exams.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
