About Debra

I just finished my 2nd year of teaching Kindergarten at a highly diverse Catholic school. Prior to this, I was a homeschool instructor for a 5th grade scholar with special needs in Brooklyn. I've also taught 3rd and 4th grade at a public charter school in the South Bronx, as well as kindergarten to 2nd grades in private Catholic schools. I'd love to bring the valuable knowledge that I've gained from these experiences to others in the future.

I'm a graduate of IONA College in New Rochelle, where I majored in Elementary Education and minored in History. My college experience gave me the opportunity to enhance my educational skills. I also have 15 credits towards my Master’s Degree in Literacy from Fordham University, which I obtained through the UFT program. I've taken and passed all the required tests for NYS certification as of last year: LAST, ATS-W, and CST-Multi-Subject. I’m ready to take the 2 new required exams so I could apply for my certification under Individual Pathway. Once all my requirements have been met, I'll be certified in Early Childhood Education- Birth through 2nd grade. I was fingerprinted at the New York City Board of Education building in Brooklyn in 1999 and at the Department of Investigation in 2010. To date, my fingerprints have been cleared.

I extend a sincere thank you for taking time to review my credentials and learn more about me. I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

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.
