About Debra

I bring a unique blend of skills and experience to the tutoring arena. I am a former elementary teacher but spent most of my career as a team leader and director in the field of health care management. My greatest satisfaction has always come from helping others develop their abilities to communicate clearly, effectively and respectfully. Two years ago I left the corporate world to focus on writing and editing and opened my business. I have had the privilege of helping individuals and small businesses with resumes, policy and procedure manuals and other written materials. I also am the managing editor for a blog for a regional writers group, and produce a monthly newsletter for my church.

Tutoring and mentoring have long been a part of my life. I tutored peers all through high school, mentored and developed staff in my professional career, and coached young family members and children of friends through their secondary and post-secondary journeys. I am troubled by the decline of the ability of many young people to express themselves clearly and persuasively and am always looking for opportunities to be part of the solution to that growing problem. In my experience, the one-to-one experience of tutoring offers to best environment for success and growth.
