About Debora

I am a professional teacher and counselor who has worked in the school system since 1993. I taught middle school and elementary. I also taught college for a few years. My extensive background in education has led me to many opportunities such as writing and publishing my first book. I enjoy teaching and helping students achieve their goals and to help them further their education. For several years, I have tutored students in language arts, writing, and English. I taught psychology for two years and tutored students in this subject. I enjoy teaching and tutoring, and I look forward to helping those who need tutoring in writing, English, and language arts.

I have taught students with learning disabilities and speech impairments. My goal as a teacher, was to help the students develop positive social skills, writing skills, and phonics so that they could develop confidence to achieve their educational goals. As an educator, I love teaching and encouraging my students to be successful and excited about learning and growing academically. I also taught LD students as well as ADD and ADHD students with reading and language arts difficulties.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I worked as a special needs teacher for middle and elementary schools for 8 years. I was a certified LD teacher and I taught students with ADD, ADHD and LD. I taught, reading, language arts, and grammar. I'm certified in these areas.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked as a Elementary and Middle School Teacher for 10+ years, and am also certified in reading, language arts K-6. I look forward to assisting your child in their educational endeavors.

Phonics

I taught reading, language arts, and phonics to elementary and middle school students with learning disabilities for 7 years. I have a certification in Reading which included Phonics to help those students with reading comprehension, and cognitive dysfunction. My students learned that there are 76 phonograms in the English language and each student had these cards to learn how to pronounce words. Sounding out words was difficult for my students, but in the end, they were reading at their grade level. Each student had an IEP plan that needed to be followed and learning phonics was in their goal setting.

I am a certified teacher, and I taught school for 10 years.

Proofreading

I have many years experience in this field. I published a book and have helped many students with their writing and proofreading the material.

Study Skills

As a Teacher, I teach one study skill each day as a part of my morning class, as a transition activity, or at the end of my class. It is effective and not to time-consuming. I teach my students good study habits about organization, homework, and how to focus while you work.
