About Debbie

I love connecting with my students. I love finding out what they know and building on that to help them become lifelong readers and writers. And I love when one of my students doesn't need me any longer!

I have taught kindergarten literacy, Reading Recovery, and special reading (k-6) for 35 years in a local public school. Since retiring and during summers for years I have tutored many students until they could read and write in their classrooms.

I would like to continue to tutor students kindergarten through sixth grade in reading and writing and test taking. When working with a student I will provide appropriate reading material, individualized skill games, and manipulatiives for use during sessions as well as for practice at home.
