About Debra

I love to help students develop their writing and research skills. To excel in written and verbal communication is to succeed in a future career. Organizing thoughts properly and writing a well-developed paper can be difficult for some students. I can help you gain confidence in your writing skills. Structuring a paper can be overwhelming. By taking the process one step at a time, you can learn skills that will apply to any written or oral assignment. I specialize in writing assignments for any subject or purpose. Students who have worked with me have gone on to get Master's and Doctorate degrees. I have helped their skills improve dramatically. Once a student receives a writing or research assignment, I help them develop a plan and work through each step from outline to final draft. One of the highlights of tutoring is seeing the writing develop from poorly organized and underdeveloped to high-quality writing that would meet even graduate school requirements. I believe writing skills are important to success in life. If you cannot communicate well, you cannot succeed.

I have a BS in Criminal Justice from Wichita State University. I have a master's degree in Sociology. I am pursuing a PhD in Psychology. I hold myself and my students to a high standard. Excellent writing is a skill that will always help in school and in a job. I encourage students who need help with writing and communication skills to contact me. I take pride in my ability to be flexible and to listen to each student's needs. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes. To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I have a tutoring office in Old Town Wichita where I meet with my students. However, on occasion, I can arrange to meet in West Wichita. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your future writing and research projects. Additionally, I tutor in a variety of subjects that often require written papers and assignments. Let me help you succeed!
