About Deborah

I have been teaching students at the college level for seven years, but I also love working with younger students. I began tutoring children in writing, reading, and math when I was in high school and fell in love with teaching. I continued to tutor throughout college, helping students engage with material which which they struggled. I find tremendous joy helping students overcome obstacles and assisting them with learning on their own. This joy led me to pursue a PhD in Art History.

I am currently a Lecturer in Art History at UCSB, teaching courses in my specialty of Latin American art. I have been studying Art History for over 15 years, have traveled the world to see art in person, and have written about it extensively.

I love working with students one-on-one. I am patient, yet firm, and infuse my teaching with sense of humor. I am happy to work with a student on completing a particular project or assignment, assisting with studying, or working through difficult concepts.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Archaeology

I have participated in five archaeological excavations. I have served as a lab director for an archaeological excavation in Peru and have been employed as a ceramics specialist for two excavations. I have performed pedestrian survey of archaeological sites in Peru. My dissertation involved the assessment of archaeological reports and the analysis of their evidence.

Public Speaking

As a teacher, I have a lot of experience speaking in front of crowds. I have spoken at a number of professional conferences and have seen many successful and unsuccessful speaking techniques. I learned many public speaking tips and techniques in High School, where I was the president of the Speech and Debate club for 3 years and participated in many speech competitions.
