About Debra

I have taught English at the High School level for 16 years. I have specialized in assisting students in their Junior year with preparing for the HSPA, which is now the PARCC, and the SAT, the NEW SAT (which will be administered in March 2016) and the NEW ACT college entrance exams. I also assist students in writing effective college application essays,and scholarship application essays. Moreover, I can help students with the literature and writing that is required in their English class. I work with all students at the secondary level 7-12 grade.

I have tutored many students who are presently attending college. I work with students in a comfortable atmosphere and individually use methods that are most effective for the individual learning style of the student.

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.

SAT Reading

I bring my own SAT/ACT material to the lessons and use strategies that have been successful for the students I have already tutored. I have taken courses with professionals that have scored AP English exams, who have in turn revealed many strategies and key points scorers look for in scoring the SAT Essay.

It has been two months and my son sa ...
