Grammar and Business Writing

Today subject was a Grammar (Present Continuous) , Business Writing (Useful Phrases for Emails and Letters) and corrected my pronunciation and conversation. In addition , she gave me some of useful information.

JI WHAN, 18 lessons with Debbie

Great thorough tutor

Well prepared each session. Debbi spent her own time preparing for my 13 y/o son's ISEE tutoring sessions. Completely capable of tutoring him for the ISEE. We are having her tutor our daughter for the SSAT we were so satisfied. Our son is much more confident going in to sit for this test. Very good with him and explains everything very well.

Cinamin , 9 lessons with Debbie

Knowledgeable, patient, and gave me exactly the skills I needed to learn

Debbie was a huge help when I was looking for a refresher on how to build pivot tables. She walked me through the specific questions I had, and gave me some great workarounds when it became clear that some of my issues were because I was using Excel on a Mac. I highly recommend her if you're looking to learn from an expert who's a great teacher!

Mandy, 1 lesson with Debbie

Awesome for Math

Debbie is a great Tudor she takes time with my daughter and knew exactly where her weaknesses were it took me a long time to find her, I'm glad I did, she is awsome

Selena, 6 lessons with Debbie

Going above and beyond.

Debbie has been so helpful meeting with my Grandsons teachers and working with them and making a work plan. Truly appreciate what she has done.

Melody, 9 lessons with Debbie

Very Knowledgeable!

We went over the analytical reasoning sections of the GRE. She was wonderful at focusing on strategy and helping me prepare in a short time.

Emily, 4 lessons with Debbie

Debbie is patient!

I learned some things about Math that I have not known before such as absolute values being about distance and roots I had never understood, but the way she explained it to me, made sense!
