It is for this reason that I chose a career in education. I have worked for the past 17 years as a Special Education Teacher. I have taught students from preschool through 8th grade.

I have always had a love, admiration and respect for children. I would admire their thought processes and smile at the funny things they would say. It is for this reason that I chose a career in education. I have worked for the past 17 years as a Special Education Teacher. I have taught students from preschool through 8th grade. I have worked with students with a variety of disabilities as well as regular education students. The experience of working with such a wide variety of students with all different leaning styles, has allowed me to develop a repertoire of different forms of instruction to meet each individual students needs.

I specialize in tutoring students in reading and math from preschool through 8th grade. I spend my time with the students finding modifications that will help for them to be successful in their academic endeavors.Every student has the ability to learn and it is my job as an educator to find the way in which each student learns best.

I am a Certified Math Coach in the State of Connecticut. I went through a special 3 year program through St. Joseph's for this certification.

I am trained in many phonics, decoding and reading comprehension programs.

I am a certified Special Education Teacher. I have educated and tutored students with autism, emotional disturbance, down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, as well as students who are medically fragile.

I am available for tutoring daily after 4 PM. Please fell free to contact me for further information.

Knowledgeable and Interactive Tutor

We are so excited to have Ms. Debra tutor our daughter. Our daughter has consistently walked away saying how fun the lessons were and enjoys working with Ms. Debra because of the dynamic interaction... Looking forward to her next lesson!

Melinda, 8 lessons with Debra

Assessment to have better understanding if what my son needs to progress.

First lesson. My son appears motivated and had positive things to say. Initial assessment that was performed for him to have a personal plan is exactly what he needs. Thank you.

Great tutor

Debra has been working with my son for a while now and they have been working really well together. She also gets in touch with his teachers to really gauge where he needs the help most.

Sweet, Patient and knowledgeable

Debra is currently working with my nine-year-old son who has ADHD, Aspergers and Dyslexia. We have only met with her once so far, but during just that one visit my son has walked away retaining more information than what he has in the first two months of the school year. My son has had a extremely difficult time learning to read and is still only at a kindergarten level but Debra has some great ideas to help my son learn and shows such enthusiasm towards teaching him. I am excited for our continued lessons with her and have great faith that her time with him will be a great asset to him and his education.

Great tutor !

Debra has been a great help to our son ! She works with him tirelessly and help him achieve his goals that his teacher has set for him. We were fortunate to have found her .

Very friendly and patient.

Ms. Deb, reached out to Jacob's teacher to find out what he was struggling with at school as well as what his current lesson plans were. She came prepared with her own text books for him and sat patiently with him. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. When I explained that I wasn't sure of how to do his homework from the night before at first, after reviewing it with Jacob she then turned to me to make sure I understood it. Great teacher.
