About Debra

While my degree is in early childhood/elementary education from Temple University in Philadelphia, I have spent over 20 years working as a writing professional in the rail/transit industry. I enjoy working with children and feel that learning to communicate thoughts clearly, concisely, and creatively helps to ensure children achieve success and gain confidence. A strong foundation of grammar and writing skills helps children have a more successful and gratifying school experience which follows them throughout their lives.

I have also been a professional writer/editor for engineering consulting companies, developing, writing, proofreading, consolidating, and producing documentation such as specifications, operating and maintenance manuals, proposals, grants, and training materials. My skills include setting up documentation, coordination multiple documents, and working with manuals to produce training materials.

I enjoy working on both ends of the spectrum, and I feel that my experience helps me to connect the basic knowledge and skills learned at the elementary level to the ultimate outcome of high-quality writing later in life. I look forward to working with students and helping them meet their full potential.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a BS in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA with a 3.47 GPA. I took, and successfully passed, the the federal and state teacher's exams and hold a temporary certification. I raised two children and instilled a love and respect for learning in them, and know from my personal experience, that education is the key to a happy, secure and satisfying life. Over the course of my career, I have been a mentor and trainer to many, and enjoying working with others. When student "gets it," it is one of the most gratifying things!
