About Debra


Bio

Hi there! My name is Debbie and I’m an experienced, tenured teacher who understands the classroom situation and the source of struggle it can be for a student. A disconnect with the teacher happens often and some one-on-one time with a friendly face who has previously taught the curriculum is a huge help!

Hi there! My name is Debbie and I’m an experienced, tenured teacher who understands the classroom situation and the source of struggle it can be for a student. A disconnect with the teacher happens often and some one-on-one time with a friendly face who has previously taught the curriculum is a huge help! I have 9 years experience in an IB combo school in Texas where I taught AP Statistics, IB Math Studies SL, IB Mathematics SL, Algebra 2 and PreCal/Trigonometry. I was the best performing teacher in the school district for AP Statistics and was a district-level curriculum writer. ALL of my IB students passed the math portion of their diplomas. Two things that makes me unique – my teaching certification in Texas is current and I have an electrical engineering degree and worked in the industry for 13 years. I believe that this helps me give the students a better idea of where the math is really used.

Whether you or your child are looking for a lesson to reteach a tricky subject, to prepare for a test, to review an IB Internal Assessment, or are looking for consistent support throughout the school year, I would love to be of assistance. I have found that word/story problems give the biggest challenge, and I have a large library of extra problems to provide the student with as much extra practice as needed. Throughout my teaching career, I enjoyed tutoring privately as it allowed me to better understand the learning roadblocks thus helping me to become a better teacher. My goal is to help you or your child develop a confident understanding of the math and consequently excel in all assessments.

Statistics

Statistics

Statistics can give even the best math student trouble. It is a different kind of math, but we see it used all around us. Being an experienced teacher means that I can reteach when there is confusion and give extra problems for practice. My AP Students scored on average higher than the National average with many 5's and 4's.

Sometimes there is a disconnect between the student and teacher and some one-on-one time is needed to regain confidence. I am a tutor who knows the curriculum and am able to reteach to get the student "back in the race".

Students must have a solid foundation in Algebra to be successful with the rest of their high school math and physics classes. I know what the common misunderstandings are and have many tools and strategies to help the student regain confidence.

I love precal and trig. Because of my teaching experience I know what the common misunderstandings are and have many tools and strategies to help the student regain confidence.. My engineering background has helped me provide more insight to the importance of the precal/trig in the real world.

So available, flexible and good with teens

We called Ms. Debra and she came to the rescue when my son was convinced he would never pass stats. With her help he felt so much more confident and picked up a lot of steam. Saving Grace!

Passionate and knowledeable tutor

Debra was an excellent and knowledeable tutor. She was very passionate and made her student comfortable and confident .we recommend her 💯 percent. My daughter said she is very knowledgeable in her statistics and love to continue with her in the future. She is patient and very clear in explaining things. I highly recommend her

Suganya, 6 lessons with Debra

very good.

My son thought that Debra was really good in explaining AP Statistics to him. It helps that she actually taught the class in high school. We will go to her for when we need further assistance.

Extremely knowledgeable and very adaptable

Debra was a very patient and caring tutor and walked my daughter through the steps to help her understand the maths. She has always been easy to communicate with and I was very happy when she expanded her hours to fit in with our timing. Would highly recommend Debra.

Great teacher!

Debra B. helped me a lot with understanding the concepts and not just that specific problem. Her teaching experience is really helpful in tutoring sessions and I now feel more confident about succeeding my AP Statistics class this semester.

Tea, 2 lessons with Debra

Efficient and knowledgeable

I had scheduled an early morning meeting with another tutor that did not show up and Debra showed up in my "other tutors" section for my search and I reached out to her. I needed some help in my college stats class. I asked if she could to that day in the afternoon and she gave me a couple times that would work and we made a plan. It was super easy to schedule a meeting with her even though she was in another time zone. I uploaded the problems I was having in a word doc and excel before hand. When we met, it was my first time using wyzant and it was super easy to follow through with video and drawing board. Debra was really great at walking me through the premise of the question as in defining terms before we went into looking at the problem. The analogies she used in explaining the concept was what really got the light bulb moments going. Helping me translate the data into something meaningful was quite easy for her. I recommend Debra for your stats issues and will schedule her if I have any further questions for stats.

Great Tutor!

She really helped explain Statistics to my daughter and clear up the things she did not understand from class. She was great at directing the lesson, knowledgeable, and got a lot done in a short session! Will be seeking her help in future units so this class goes smoothly!

Honors Algebra 2

Debra is very a thorough and extremely helpful tutor. She not only helps review what was taught in class but helps with learning concepts so it will carryover with further understanding of the class.
