About DEBRA

I am a certified teacher in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. I have taught in many grades and in many situations, ranging from one-on-one tutoring to full-sized classrooms. I have taught grades PreK through 12th, although my preference is lower elementary grades K-4. I have taught in child care centers, preschools, private elementary schools, public elementary schools, and home school.

I love working with students, especially when I can make them laugh and feel comfortable with me. A student must trust me before they will learn from me, so I spend time getting to know them first before we dive into the academics. I have many materials that I have collected over the years to assist me in evaluating and meeting the needs of my students.

My calling is to teach children. I ask not only for a willing student, but also for a willing family to support their child as he or she learns.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a BA in Education from Illinois State University. I have taught over 30 years including home schooling for grades K-12, private schools, public school and substitute teaching. I am certified in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education.

Phonics

I have spent 11 years of teaching in Pre-K and kindergarten where the emphasis was always on phonics. I attended a week-long seminar learning the SRA DISTAR reading methods for Direct Instruction. I have successfully used Siegfried Engelmann's book, Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons, to teach preschoolers as well as an illiterate 10-year-old child. I have also used the A Beka Books phonics program for several years.
