About Debbie

Expert Tutor with over 200 semester hours in college courses -- WIDE SUBJECT RANGE!

I can nearly teach nearly all levels of English, Math, Music, Science and few other subjects ~ grade school through grade 16.

Former student at UMKC's School of Biological Sciences, I can help Pre-Med, Pre-Dental, Pre-Pharmacy, etc...took classes with dental/medical/pharmacy students in a "MEDICALLY - ORIENTED" Program that is more challenging than many other similar programs at other colleges. Let me help with many difficult subjects. I have nearly two degrees (BS in Computer Information Systems and nearly a BS in Biology at UMKC School of Biological Sciences).

So, if you need help in science, maybe headed to a health professional school (nursing, medical, dental, pharmacy, etc), or need help in accounting/math (nearly a math minor at UMKC), a musician (piano) or need tutoring in a computer-related area...I can help!

Let me tutor you whether a grade school level course through grade 16. I will assist with homework, study for exams, and help to increase your knowledge and skills in the subject area.

Also, I will be at UMKC on Tuesdays and Thursdays this Fall 2013 semester and am accepting students.

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.

Algebra 2

I am proficient in Algebra 2 and have passed the qualifying test with a 90%. I've had Introductory Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Trigonometry, Statistics, and Calculus I (with A's and B's in all of these courses).


Chemistry qualifications:

Qualified to tutor General Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Have had several biology classes that included Chemistry like Cell Biology, Botany, Human Physiology, etc.

Computer Science

I have a BS in Computer Information Systems that has given me a wide knowledge of Computer Science on the undergraduate level. I have experience in programming, knowledge of hardware, networks, databases, etc. I also have extensive experience with the World Wide Web, many graphics software (primarily Fireworks and Photoshop), Adobe InDesign, FTP, html, Dreamweaver, etc.


I have proficiency in Dreamweaver due to a BS in Computer Information Systems and work experience with the software. I've had two years work experience using Dreamweaver to design web pages while working in the e-commerce field. The work was varied and gave me a broad exposure to this software. I've used this software to both create new pages and to easily edit existing ones.

Microsoft Excel

I have more than 10 years experience working with Excel in a professional accounting environment. I obtained a BS in Computer Information Systems with formal training in Microsoft Office, including Excel.


I have extensive training in piano that consists of university instruction (Ph.d) and training from other performance professionals. I began playing piano when I was six years old with training from my grandmother, who used to work for Warner Brothers. I also was a UMKC Conservatory of Music Continuing Education student for seven years. I'm in the process of planning an upcoming music CD that I plan to submit to record labels through an agent.


I have passed the Wyzant Statistics qualifying test with a 91%, have taken two statistics and several other math courses. I've had math up through Calculus I, which includes Trigonometry. Also, I have an extensive science background, having done pre-med at UMKC.
