About Deborah

I am a doctoral student at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. I am studying Educational Psychology with a specialization in Special Education - Literacy and Writing. I was an English Language Arts and Reading teacher (mostly in middle schools) for over 13 years before I became an Instructional Coach and later a Curriculum Specialist. I am certified in Texas in multiple areas, including Reading Specialist and English Language Arts and Reading. I teach all ages, but I am most happy working with middle school age students. They are a special group.

I am looking to not only supplement my income but also reconnect with students in need of assistance. I love teaching and helping students of all ages reach their potential, and I miss that in my current life as a doctoral student. If you are looking for an experienced Reading and/or Writing teacher, then I would love to connect with you.

I have a Masters of Education in Reading Education, and I am certified in Texas to teach in the following areas: Reading Specialist, Master Reading Teacher, Special Education, English as a Second Language, and Secondary English. I have experience tutoring Reading and SAT Prep at Huntington Learning Centers, and I am an expert in Grammar, Reading, Vocabulary, and overall Writing.

I am not taking classes this summer, so I am free to be flexible with scheduling lessons. I am challenging but fun, and I believe strongly that all students can learn if given the right support and opportunities. If you are interested, please contact me, and we can arrange an initial consultation (and tutoring session if wanted). I look forward to working with you.

Knowledgeable, Patient and a Big Help — Deborah has my son engaged in his reading and writing assignments. She has gotten him to think more conceptually while helping him understand the rules of grammar. She is always prepared and patient when more time needs to be spent on a concept or assignment. So happy with the lessons we have had so far. ...
