About Deborah

I have a B.A. from Lehman College in New York. I studied speech pathology , education, psychology and special education at Lehman, Hunter, and Bank Street College.

I have an M.S. Ed. from Grand Canyon University in Curriculum Design Development and Technology. My love of teaching comes from a strong desire to see my students succeed and build confidence and skills.
With more than 40 years as a highly effective full time teacher my career spans work with students from pre-school through post college education. I take pride in knowing that my work has led countless numbers of students to improve their skill sets, test scores ,grades, and confidence. My work with both regular and special education students brings me great joy . I completed my Masters in Curriculum Design Development and Technology at Grand Canyon University in 2013 with a 97.99 grade point index. I specialize in teaching reading, writing, public speaking ,computer skills, study skills, organizational skills as well as test prep.

I spent two years studying with an award winning math program called Math Solutions which prepared me to assess and provide math lessons that embrace each students ideal learning style so that they can progress with understanding through the math continuum. My years of experience with both regular and special education students has provided me with vast experience in understanding where students go wrong in math, why and how to develop their math skills.

I can assess each students learning style, strengths, and weaknesses, and design lessons that are individualized to help my students meet their goals while building confidence in themselves.
I will provide meaningful homework that solidifies my students understanding of the material and strategies they learn after each session. I will provide periodic assessments and progress reports.
I am committed to providing the best instruction possible and am open to listening to both my students and their parents so that my lessons meet the students individual learning styles and needs.
I try to be flexible with my time but do require a 24 hour cancellation notice. I can offer make-up time when possible in the same week.
I am eager to work with you and help you achieve your personal best.





































































































































































































































































































































































































I spent two years of training with an award winning program called Math Solutions that provided me with a working knowledge of the math continuum.The diverse way this program guides instruction for students with many various learning styles makes teaching math to any student possible. I have had tremendous success moving students who are far below grade level to grade level using the techniques I learned with a Math Solution approach when teaching math.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary education for the New York City Department of Education for 38 years and considered to be highly effective. I currently service more then 60 students and run a computer lab and reading program. I enjoy my work and am quite successful with my students.

Phonics

My background in Speech Pathology and my 38 years of teaching phonics has equipped me to be a highly effective instructor of phonics. My k-2 students as well as for my struggling readers, have demonstrated the ability to move from non-readers to readers under my instruction. I am using methods learned from Wilson training, as well as The Orton -Gulligham program. My special education and regular education classes in reading have provided me with the background I need to teach phonics. I have a wealth of material available to me to facilitate my instruction.

Study Skills

There are several key components that students need to address in order to be successful in developing good study habits. Through observation and questioning I can quickly determine how to help my students master the key elements that are interfering with their success. I will address and improve their use of time management, organization, and study habits to effectively improve their grades. I will help them understanding how to prepare for exams, master homework assignments and write papers and essays.
