About Deborah

I have 8 years of public school teaching experience, in which I have worked with students from grades 5-8. My specialty is in helping students to achieve their own personal best. I enjoy working with students and helping them to understand material that has been hard for them and helping them to reach their own goals.

I have taught middle school math and have specialized in mathematics in an elementary school setting. I have a unique ability to help students understand math at a deeper level. Rather than just teaching students to repeat back formulas, I help students understand why the formulas work, and where they come from.

I am able to break down writing tasks into smaller chunks that students can understand. I have been trained on 6 traits writing and am very good at teaching students how to write essays.

I have worked with the Common Core since its adoption. I understand what is intended with the standards and can help students to use the type of deeper thinking skills that are required to meet the Common Core standards.

I have worked with Elementary aged students for over 15 years as an after school program leader, camp counselor and director, outdoor education instructor and finally classroom teacher. I have a degree in Elementary Education and 8 years teaching experience.

I would like to invite you to contact me for more information and to schedule lessons with me.

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.

Common Core

I have taught for the past 4 years in elementary and middle school settings using the common core. Prior to the formal adoption of the common core, I participated in several professional development workshops focused on familiarizing teachers with the common core and aligning our school's curriculum materials to the common core standards. In addition I have completed a three credit course on specific methods for teaching math using multiple methods and an inquiry-based approach, these are methods encouraged by the common core.

Elementary (K-6th)

I attended Utah State University and earned a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I am currently certified to teach all subjects k-8 in the state of Nevada, and the state of Idaho. I also have a lapsed certification to teach all subjects k-6 in Utah. I have been teaching in elementary and middle school settings for the past 8 years; prior to my classroom teaching experience, I worked for two years with elementary school students in an outdoor education setting. I also worked for 4 years as an aide in an after school program, where I helped elementary school students with homework.

Study Skills

As an elementary school teacher over the past 8 years, I have helped numerous students to develop their study skills. I have primarily used the S.O.A.R. program as a resource. I teach students how to organize a binder or folder system to keep track of homework assignments and notes. I show them efficient ways to take notes and then study them. I help them to organize their time and set priorities using a planner and specific goal setting.
