With over 25 years of teaching experience in both public and private schools, I have learned how to recognize the needs of individual students and how best to help them. I am a certified teacher who cares if students are successful. Let's work together to improve grades and become more prepared to meet the challenges of elementary and higher education.

It is my desire to see students in all grades achieve their learning goals while enjoying the education process. Students will be tutored at their own pace of learning and experience success at every level.

While it's true that emails and texts have their place in our world; many employers and top colleges still want to communicate with people who have excellent reading, writing, proofreading and vocabulary skills. Let me help you to be successful. Elementary thru College students can receive the help they need.

I have over ten years of experience in teaching Microsoft Word practical applications and desktop projects like posters, invitations, business cards, menus and other documents.

If you're interested in learning or improving in areas where I have experience, please contact me to learn more about what I can teach you and schedule lessons. I am available Monday through Friday from noon to 8 p.m. If a weekend tutoring session is desired, please contact to check availability to set the date and time for that session.

Career Development

Teaching students career development in areas of Career Internship and Interrelated Careers (which is a work program course for Juniors and Seniors) has been part of my teaching assignments for the past seven years. My responsibility as a classroom teacher was to instruct students in the preparation of resumes, applications, cover letters, interviewing techniques and becoming familiar with employer/mentor evaluations. Students were taught about proper work ethics, dressing appropriately, identifying personal and work values, interpersonal skills on the job, conflict resolution techniques and how to work through issues.

My teaching experience in desktop publishing included three types of applications: QuarkXPress (4 years); Microsoft Word (7 years); and Adobe InDesign (4 years).

The usual method of instruction included and began by discussing the purpose of of the document, general explanation of skills to be used while viewing the finished product, step-by- step teacher demonstration alternating with student repeating each step hands-on.

Great ELA tutor

Debra is helping my son grasp his English and Language Arts work. It's going well. We are planning to use her weekly. I am very confident that his next assessment and writing work will look different as a result of this tutoring.
