About Debra

Having 18+ years teaching experience in mostly elementary education (grades 3 & 4), my former students excelled in FCAT reading and writing testing compared to county and school results-including the lowest percentile ranked students. I strive to individualize learning according to specific needs and interests of students. I have gained a wealth of knowledge of the reading process and am aware of the new Common Core Standards being implemented in most of Florida's schools at this time, surely in Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough Counties.

Unlike the classroom expectations mandated by various school districts, as a tutor I have the freedom to implement and accommodate different methods and strategies not always allowed in the public school systems. My teaching philosophy is to facilitate the learning process from what works, be it the same or different - as recent training from obtaining my Masters in Reading Education K-12 have led me to a true understanding of the variance of learning styles and teaching methods based on individual, not collective needs and/or beliefs. I teach only utilizing best practices and research-proven, not just research-based strategies.
