About Deborah

I believe that education is an individual, unique experience for every student who enters a classroom or is tutored. In order for children to benefit from what school offers and from what tutoring offers, I thinks as a teacher/tutor I must fully understand the importance of my job. I also believe that it is important to first establish a mutually respectful honest rapport with my students - a relationship in which communication is of the highest priority. Through this relationship, a fair, democratic environment based on trust and caring can be established in the classroom and in the tutoring sessions, making it possible to interact confidently and safely in an academic setting. Once this foundation is established then I have already accomplished a major goal: the ethical characteristics of equality; open, honest communication; and trust have been emphasized and put into practice without having to preach to students.
I have been in education over thirty years and taught a variety of subjects. I have also been a teacher to an Elementary Principal. Elementary education I feel is the foundation for continuous learning. It set the ground work for children to see their ability to learn and the right to a quality education. All youths, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, and capabilities should have the opportunity to learn from professional well-informed teachers/tutors who are knowledgeable, both in their area of expertise and life. In choosing to become a teacher/tutor, I have made the commitment to myself and my future students to be the best academic, personal, and ethical role model I can be.
