About Debra

My name is Debra V. I have worked in suburban and urban schools. I have a Master of Arts in Elementary Education with special training in English as a Second Language and Special Education-Learning Disabilities. I also hold Master's degrees from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Roosevelt University and Governors State University.

My philosophy of learning is to provide students with the tools they need to develop their own conclusions. I see myself as a facilitator in the tutoring process. I develop lessons that are relevant and meaningful to each student and I believe in providing students the skills they need to be life long learners. I am friendly, supportive, reliable and accessible.

My lessons plans address multiple learning styles and I demonstrate my lessons for my students.

My hours and days are flexible and I especially have additional skills in tutoring students for ESL, K-5 curriculum and working with students with learning challenges.

I have also tutored adults for many years in non academic English as a Second Language. I received formal training at National Louis University in Wheaton, IL.
