About Deborah


Bio

I am a caring and creative teacher. I learn from every relationship with each student and their families, how to become a better more efficient teacher. My students often succeed at their tests and grow to love the language or other subject matter they are learning. I have worked for over 35 years teaching mostly English as a Second Language, but also French, some kinds of low level math, writing, history and some kinds of test skills. I would love to hear from you about your needs. I...

I am a caring and creative teacher. I learn from every relationship with each student and their families, how to become a better more efficient teacher. My students often succeed at their tests and grow to love the language or other subject matter they are learning. I have worked for over 35 years teaching mostly English as a Second Language, but also French, some kinds of low level math, writing, history and some kinds of test skills. I would love to hear from you about your needs. I can analyze those your problems. I love students of all abilities and believe that all subjects including spiritual growth are included in holistic learning.

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

I have experience and training in working with people with attention deficit disorders. I have studied how language acquisition is affected as well as advancement in all subjects. I have tutored students with this spectrum of disability . They have been of all ages, and I have used smell stickers, rewards of all kinds, some holding back of rewards and emphasis on what they love to do. With this kind of approach, I have had small and large successes, great leaps in reading for example.
