About Deborah


Bio

I firmly believe that one of the most important things in life is getting a quality education. A good education can lead to greater opportunities and some of the best opportunities are in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields. However, these fields also pose many challenges to today's students. It is my goal to help students conquer that challenge.

I firmly believe that one of the most important things in life is getting a quality education. A good education can lead to greater opportunities and some of the best opportunities are in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields. However, these fields also pose many challenges to today's students. It is my goal to help students conquer that challenge.

As a physics masters student, I became well versed in many aspects of the STEM field and I am incredibly passionate about these subjects. My professors have always been always astounded by my thirst for knowledge and my strong work ethic. Also, working in a materials science research lab for three years gave me a deeper understanding of physics, mathematics, chemistry and scientific inquiry that others may not have. During my time as an undergraduate, I helped students from an elementary to college level understand interesting physics and math concepts through educational outreach programs. Currently, as a teaching assistant, I help introduce the field of physics to undergraduate students.

Generally, I will first ask the student to complete an assignment. Anywhere the student struggles, I give them small hints to help them out. If the student is still struggling, then I will give a small explanation on the concept and give a very detailed solution, explaining every single step in detail. From there, I will usually have the student complete a problem of their own, again giving them small hints when they're struggling. Once the student has a good handle on the type of problem, then I simply help them review and give them test taking tips.

Excellent tutoring experience

Deborah has been amazing for my son. He has been struggling in many levels this year and she has become a great help for him. She is very clear and has extensive knowledge to share

Melissa, 31 lessons with Deborah

She is very knowlegable and patient.

She is helping my son learn AP physics since the AP teacher has been not been out of school a lot. I am hoping that she can teach the basics of physics so that he can pass his AP test at the end of the year.

physics

We did online tutoring. My son said he likes her because she makes physics easier to understand. We will continue with her

Diana, 1 lesson with Deborah

Very knowledgeable and patient

She helped me understand better calculus 1 looking forward for next lesson, but I still have to work hard at home.
