About Deb

I have been a special education teacher for 28 years in a variety of settings including day treatment, district programs and most recently a resource room. I've worked with students ages 5-14 who are challenged academically, behaviorally and emotionally and have had great success building relationships with students and parents alike. I am a highly qualified certified teacher in the state of Maine. I hold endorsements in special education (k-12) and elementary education (k-8). My masters degree is in special education and I have a concentration in literacy.

It is my absolute desire to meet kids where they are at and build a structure that allows the greatest success. This may include a traditional approach to instruction, but most likely will include specialized instruction or alternative methods i.e. animal assisted instruction or aromatherapy, community based instruction.

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.

I am a highly qualified certified teacher in the state of Maine. I hold endorsements in special education (k-12) and elementary education (k-8). My Master's degree is in special education, and I have a concentration in literacy. I also am a certified Wilson Reading Teacher. My experience has been with students who have serious emotional disturbances, behavior, and learning disabilities. I've worked in a day treatment program for 4 years, developed a school based self contained program and am currently working in a resource setting in a public school.

I teach with a program called Handwriting without Tears. It is very successful with students who struggle with handwriting.
