About Debbie

I have been a School Psychologist for over twenty years. This background has afforded me the opportunity to discern children's learning styles and why they may be having difficulty in a subject matter. I have found that knowing how to "teach" your child the "skill" of learning is just as important as the specific subject matter. I am certified to work with children from K-12 years of age. All of my professional career has been spent working in special education. I have a Masters Degree from Queens College. I love working with children and seeing how happy they become when school is no longer an "unhappy" place for them.

All people have different learning styles. I access how your child best learns. I will teach to their strength and help them with their weaknesses. I will bolster their self esteem and help motivate them to make learning fun. I encourage them to discuss what it is about their work that makes them feel that they cannot complete it. I teach them skills that they can use in all their work to help them.

I can see your child in your home or in a nearby library. It is important that we consistently communicate with each other to ensure that your child is getting the most from the tutoring session. This can be done in person, phone, email or by a notebook. For consideration of both parties, 24 hours notice should be given prior to the cancellation of a session. If you are unhappy for any reason I encourage you to discuss any concerns immediately.

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.
