About Debra

Tutoring to the "Level-Ten Potential"! I am a medical student completing my last year of Medical School. I am an advocate of education. Throughout the last decade, education has politically been falling down the list of priorities, due to financial constraints, as well as other reasons that have been letting our children's education fall by the wayside. I have been a tutor throughout my life at various levels of education, in multiple areas of learning.

I have a Master of Public Health degree in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. In addition I received my bachelor's degree in Biology. I specialize in Science and Math subjects, as well as other areas for elementary, middle, and high school students. Moreover, I can also tutor in areas of Biostatistics software such as SPSS and SAS. I can tutor in several areas, such as, Biology, Math Chemistry, as well as Study skills. After years of education at the graduate and undergraduate levels have taught me a lot of important lessons for success.

All tutoring sessions will include study methods unique to that discipline, if desired. I have worked as tutor paid and unpaid for several years. Also, I have worked as a substitute teacher in elementary and middle school, as well as a graduate assistant to college students.

Please allow me to help elevate your child to their "Level-Ten Potential". Please contact me if you are interested in a tutor that cares about your child's success as much as you do.

Thank you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

ACT test grammatical concepts and writing, as well as reading comprehension. Success on the ACT is based on your success in this specific discipline.

Algebra 2

Students will receive personalized approaches to understanding algebra 2 and opportunities for creative and research-based learning techniques.

Anatomy

As a medical student, I have developed a technique for understanding anatomy and can work with students to develop a plan that will ensure their success.

Biochemistry

I am currently a medical student, I have taken several courses in Biochemistry. I supplement Biochemistry course-material with illustrative reference material to bring in more clarity when teaching complex concepts.

Elementary (K-6th)

During high school I volunteered as a tutor at a local elementary school after-school program for 4 years. During college, I worked as teacher in an Elementary After School program for 2 years. I also worked as a substitute teacher for a year after graduating from college.

Genetics

I've taken several upper-division Genetics courses. As a fourth year medical student, I am continuing to keep my knowledge in this area up-to-date. Genetics is typically considered a challenging course, however with the right tutor and research based techniques for learning I can ensure an understanding of the various topics.

MCAT

Currently, I am a fourth year medical student about to embark on Residency. I have taken the MCAT as well as other required board exams to complete my medical degree. I am aware of all the study guides and programs available. However, no amount of programs or lectures compare to one-on-one tutoring from someone that has taken the exam and successfully been accepted to medical school.

I can also offer assistance on applications and school choices.

Microsoft Access

I have worked as an Epidemiologist for several years working with several different databases, such as Access, Excel, SPSS, and SAS. I have developed data management tools and surveys to collect data using Access. I also worked with an organization whose data was housed in Access-based system for 2 years.

Great Tutoring Skills — I had my first tutoring session with Debra on last week; and I felt my first session was very productive. I had sent some items for discussion prior to our session and Debra had put together a PowerPoint presentation to show examples of some of the homework items I was having problems with. Debra kept her explanation in pretty "simple" terms and broke down the problems so that I could understand ...
