I recently got in touch with Debbie W. for help with my current college essay.Before sending Debbie my essay, I had two high school English teachers and my parents look at it, so I thought it was close to finished. She used track changes to suggest edits for my essay and when I opened my essay after reviewed it, it was completely torn apart (in the best way possible). She caught so many errors that no one, not even my English teacher who teaches grammar and writing, had caught before! We also chatted about the college admissions process afterwards. It was extremely comforting talking to her because she obviously had lots of knowledge and experience with the admissions process and let me know she could help me with any step of the way. She's easy going, immensely helpful, experienced and genuinely cares about her students.
Debbie has been tutoring my daughter for several months. She knows how to teach and has a very disciplined approach towards the subject matter. She is learning a lot and improving too.
Debbie is tutoring my son (who is a high school freshman) in English and Writing. She is extremely professional, patient, kind, and thorough. My son feels at ease with her and is thankful that he is getting the writing support he needs. She comes prepared to either help him with his homework or work with on various skills. He is learning a lot from her and his writing is improving. She is easy to get in touch and is flexible with scheduling. I highly recommend Debbie!
I like Debbie's planned approach and her preparedness before a class based on the need. She not only challenges my son with materials fit for his age, but also insists on strengthening his foundation. We are very happy with the way she works with our son, and she is just what we were looking for.
Debbie is a great tutor and is very patient. She is punctual, dependable, and committed. My son benefited from her tutoring.
Focus on the writing skill, analysis, and vocabulary. Homework with topic and review after assignment. Vocabulary assignment with book. Great for SAT, PSAT and writing skill.
Debbie was able to provide tutoring for both my girls for SAT prep and ISEE prep. She was very patient with my one daughter, who needs a bit more help as she has some learning differences. Then she was able to give my other daughter, who needs to be challenged a bit more, just what she needs for her SAT prep. She always showed up on time and was able to explain everything to me at the end of the session. I would recommend Debbie if your child needs an English tutor. She also is well versed on all aspects of the testing for SAT and ACT.
She didn't have a lot of knowledge about the ISEE, but she did research so she was prepared prior to tutoring.
Debbie is an experienced tutor. She knows what my son's weakness is in reading and writing. She has very well prepared schedules and materials just fit for my son. After a few month's tutoring, my son did better in his school. I really appreciate the effort she has spent on my son. I definitely recommend her to friends who need help.
Debbie has been tutoring my son for several weeks on SAT and ACT Prep. She knows the material very well and has a very structured and planned approach. He is learning so much and is feeling 100% more confident.
Debbie is able to identify the difficult my son has, teach him in his speed of understanding/comprehension. She is able to get her points across to him and be patience with him. If he did not understand, she will explain again. She will always email us about the progress my son has which has been a great help for us as busy parents. My son has made much better grades in her Writing class in school. My 13 year old son told me that Debbie is nice and professional. I was amazed that this comes out from a teenage boy who disregards anything in the world.
We highly recommend her to our friends and family members who need help.
Debbie has worked with our older son studying for the GMAT and younger son for the PSAT. She has developed specific plans to help our sons understand each test. She also scheduled lesson times that fit perfectly with our sons' schedules. Our older son was very satisfied with the results of his verbal score, and attributes his results to Debbie's help. We highly recommend Debbie.
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.
