About Deb

I taught regular education 1-6 all subjects for 10 years and Special Education 1-8 all subjects for 5 years. I did research in Reading k-12 and have condensed some of the points I learned into easy, concise ways to assist all readers.

I just completed tutoring a 3rd grader in reading for the FCAT test. His reading has soared! All involved are quite pleased.

I have a B. A. in Psychology from the University of Florida. I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Nazareth College in Rochester, New York.

I have excellent teaching references available, and was voted teacher of the year by students, several times.

I am retired now. I enjoy tutoring very much! Children are wonderful!

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.
