Creative confidence and intentional technology make the difference! I approach computer science and math in unique ways that make sense to the learner. I utilize technology to maximize learning and minimize obstacles.

The Best Ever!!!
Debbie has been tutoring my daughter in algebra for the past 3 months, and the results are amazing!! Before going to Debbie, my daughter had trouble in learning math and developed an aversion to math since pre-algebra. The results were a string of poor grades and many F's. Now, with Debbie's help, she is getting mostly A's and some B's...nothing lower. She has also started to like math a lot more, and has even started helped her fellow students with their algebra issues. Debbie is very versatile in her style of teaching and uses this to find the best method for my daughter to learn. I highly recommend her to anyone that needs a great math tutor. I am more than satisfied with the results thus far and am proud to have chosen Debbie for my daughter's tutor. One of the best decisions that I have made!!

Tremendous Tutor!
Ms Debbie has been able to steadily progress with my grandson Nahe in algebra. Through Debbie's efforts, Nahe has been able to pass his algebra exam. She has not only communicated with my grandson Nahe, but also Nahe's algebra teacher. The teacher shared the exercises with Debbie. Since this communication, Debbie has really begun to positively "tutor" Nahe. I have full confidence that Ms Debbie will be able to assist Nahe grasp the foundation of algebra. I am pleased and very appreciative of Debbie's efforts thus far.

Debbie is patient. She made sure my son could demonstrate and articulate his lessons. She also provided positive encouragement and strategies to approach his quiz.

The Most Awesome Tutor of Singapore Math!!!
My daughter's school in Ohio uses a new math procedure called Singapore Math. I have had a really hard time finding a tutor that was expert in mathematics and knowledgeable in this technique. Prior to Debbie, I had tried two tutors in math for my daughter. One tutor rushed through examples and didn't interact with my daughter enough. The other tutor was not experienced enough to comprehend and relate this math method to a young child. Finally, thank God, I found Debbie on Wyzant!!! Debbie is not only super intelligent in general and in mathematics but she also has a special gift of relaying complicated concepts in a way that kids can understand and process. She doesn't just rush through examples but she actually engages your child and coaches them to 'think things through'. At the end of the session, she even provided my daughter with a summary of very helpful tips that related to the lesson session. Lastly, the nicest thing happened after our lesson. My daughter actually said 'Mom she's a great teacher' and I definitely agree 100%! If you want a 5 star tutor, look know further than Debbie!!!

Very patient!
Understood where my son needed help. Very punctual and polite that made my son easy to talk with. He felt very confident of himself now that Debbie taught him in the areas he needed brushing up on. I would highly recommend Debbie!

It's working!
My son started working with Debbie at the end of last year. His math grade is going up! He feels more successful in class and is ready to learn! It's been a very positive experience. We feel fortunate that Debbie is available to help him learn. I was skeptical but the key to selecting a tutor is to pick the one who creates a positive learning environment and is patient. It's a match and it's working!

Great Tutor
I gave her 5 stars because after auntie Debbie showed it to me, I understood. She explained it in detail which helped me understand.
