About Debra

Hello, future students! My name is Debra and I am looking forward to helping you improve your academics. I am a Certified Reading Teacher and a Trained Reading Interventionist. I have taught elementary school as well as becoming an English Language Arts Instructional Leadership Specialist and have been a Literacy Coach. I've taught all ages of students and have been trained to teach teachers.

One-to-one tutoring is an exceptional research-based strategy that can have a positive impact on a student's success in school. We'll start with your strengths and tailor an individualized program just for your needs. I believe in a hands-on approach to teaching and I can show you how to learn through my modeling of a skill and your practicing the skills. Whether it's phonics, oral language, comprehension, or writing I will help you achieve your goals.

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.

Phonics

In my experience, it is critical that students understand how to decode the English language. It's very important to building fluency when reading. I have a Masters in Education. I have 30+ years experience and Massachusetts certification as a classroom teacher. I also have Ma. certification as a K-12 Reading teacher and Connecticut certification as a Reading Interventionist, with six years experience.`

Study Skills

Study skills are such a vital part of learning. Some people have an intrinsic motivation and just know what to do; however, everyone can be trained in how to study. As a Literacy Coach, it was my job to train teachers in how to teach those skills and also my role to go into classrooms and support their teaching of study skills. Taking notes, active listening and flashcards are three of many different ways to remember information.
