I hired Ms. Deborah to help me with public speaking. My current profession is in sales so I wanted to improve my presentation skills and ability to talk in front of groups of people.
Our first session was really great, she gave me some advice about how to be a better public speaker (ex: voice inflection, how to stand in front of a group, how to use power point when presenting, etc.) She even made me give a presentation on any subject of my choosing so she could see where I needed improvement. Now mind you, I was very nervous in our first session but Ms. Deborah has an uncanny way of making you feel very comfortable and at ease.
In our 2nd session we did a lot of voice training. She showed me various techniques to improve my voice inflection when speaking in front of groups and individuals.
Would I hire Ms. Deborah again? YES!!! I think anyone who is lacking in certain skills would definitely benefit from Ms. Deborah's tutoring. The sessions that I had with Ms. Deborah helped me build my confidence about public speaking and giving presentations.
"Awesome Spanish Tutor"
Bob from Bonney Lake, WA on 5/12/14
My daughter has been going to Deb for about a month. Deb is an awesome instructor and really gets my daughter to engage. She is learning very quickly and will be speaking Spanish in no-time.

We really think we found a great tutor and person to support our son with study skills. Deb has really helped give him and us some tips and advice, we have seen huge improvements in his handwriting and the checking of his work, also asking questions when he does not understand. He enjoys his study lesson with Deb and we value her advice, which is down to earth and realistic. We would recommend Deb, we see and feel the growth in our son. Thank you Deb.
Deborah replied on 4/21/2014:
Thanks so much, Pam and Dean, for your ongoing support while I work with your son! He is such a pleasure to work with and I am looking forward to even more gains in his progress as he becomes aware of his own growth and skill improvement!

Deborah is so patient, kind, and helpful! She helped me complete last minute details of finishing my book. She also took the time to email me possible publishers for my book. I truly appreciate her help and follow-up list of publishers!
"Friendly and great tutor."
Tracy from Tacoma, WA on 12/11/13
My daughter has been meeting with Deb for a couple months now. She has helped her with math and writing and my student has had great improvement. Deb has not only helped her with the basic fundamentals but even more importantly her confidence in both subjects. She really looks forward to seeing her each week. I can really tell that Deb really cares about her students and enjoys teaching them. We couldn't of wished for a better tutor or person.

Deb has been an incredible tutor! She is always very easy to get a hold of and very prompt in her responses to phone calls and emails. She uses a variety of teaching styles and didactic materials in order to keep learners engaged and excited about learning. She is incredibly thorough and organized in her lesson plans. Deb has been a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone but I have been especially impressed with her cultural competencies as an ESL tutor.

Deb was great to deal with and I learned a lot in our first session. She was very timely in answering all my emails and questions. I know I will be excellent at public speaking with her guidance.

I was very happy to find such a great ESL tutor!
Deborah is a real professional with serious experience in teaching other people to speak English. She is a very understandable and helpful teacher. During my lessons we have worked on different subjects - pronunciation, grammatic rules, slang language, idioms, role plays and etc. She has a valuable set of different tools and sources for learning English starting from beginners to advanced in English students. You don't have to worry about creating a working plan for your education - she will make it for you after consideration of your current English speaking and reading level. Each lesson is very informative and filled with speaking and reading tasks and tests. She reviews every lesson so you will have more material to work on improving your language skills.
If you want to work with a serious English language professional - she is a right person to work with!
