About Debra


Bio

Hello students - I love science almost as much as I love teaching and tutoring. I have taught Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, SL IB Chemistry, Biology, Honors Biology and HL IB Biology and Physics in a public high school for 20 years, and before that I homeschooled for 11 years. This means that I have experienced many learning methods and styles. In these Covid times I can help with online tutoring support and online homeschool support.

Hello students - I love science almost as much as I love teaching and tutoring. I have taught Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, SL IB Chemistry, Biology, Honors Biology and HL IB Biology and Physics in a public high school for 20 years, and before that I homeschooled for 11 years. This means that I have experienced many learning methods and styles. In these Covid times I can help with online tutoring support and online homeschool support.

My educational philosophy is centered on the ability of all students to have the skills and confidence to be successful learning anything, anywhere, at any time. The growth of information continues to lead to new jobs, new fields of interest and new opportunities. I am interested in helping you be successful. I am also interested in showing you how to learn how to learn. Science is something I could talk about every day, all day long, but I am more interested in giving you confidence and skills in learning - setting you up to take on challenging ideas in the future. Students have told me that once they were successful in science, they felt they could move on to AP classes that they did not have the confidence for earlier in their schooling. Sometimes they even started thinking about medical school or other science based majors because of their increased confidence. Let me know if I can help you with online tutoring. I am available all afternoons and in a pinch (big test coming up!) some weekends. Send me an email and we can see if I am a good match for your needs and goals.

Debra helped my daughter with high school chemistry. She reviewed a homework assignment and helped her prep for a test. My daughter seemed very satisfied and more confident with the help she received. Thank you!
