About Debora

I enjoy working with kids of all ages, especially in the areas of reading and writing. I have a way of encouraging and helping kids realize their potential without making them feel dumb in the process, and I am infinitely patient with even the youngest students. While I am not a certified teacher, I do have a degree in English, am fully bilingual English/Spanish, and have experience tutoring kids in both after school and one-on-one settings. I also previously worked as a substitute teacher and with special needs kids. I enjoy working with kids of all ages, especially in the areas of reading and writing.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am fully bilingual English-Spanish and grew up speaking Spanish. I also have a minor in Spanish, which helped with my writing skills. I have tutored ages 5-7 to help these students improve their English language skills and keep up with American classrooms.

Microsoft Word

I have used Word since it was introduced, and I have used it through the years in the workforce. I would say my skills are intermediate, with some knowledge of advanced features.

Proofreading

I have a degree in English, Professional Writing, and over 25 years of experience that includes writing, editing, and proofreading.

Reading

I have a degree in English and have worked with children to improve their reading skills.
