About Deborah

I am a caring and experienced classroom teacher with over 14 years of experience teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. One of the most exciting things about teaching is when I see that a student "gets it" (understands) something with which they have been struggling. I enjoy rising to the challenge of making learning enjoyable for those students who struggle. I also enjoy enriching the curriculum for learners who seek challenges! Strength in the core curriculum and how to make it understandable for young students.


My experience in different methods of teaching math concepts helps me to reach all types of learners. I have a love of reading and skilled in making it exciting, enjoyable, and purposeful!

Although many students will end up using computers for most assignments, and future jobs, the skill of handwriting is still important as it helps build fine motor skills.

I look forward to helping you, and most importantly helping your child to feel more confident to enter school in August, to bridge any gaps, and to enrich any learners that enjoy the "extras," and to make learning a enjoyable experience!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Handwriting

I have taught 3rd grade for 12 years. At this level, I have introduced and reviewed the formation of cursive letters and the joining of individual letters to write words in cursive handwriting. I am familiar with both the D'Nealian and the Zaner-Bloser methods.
