About Deborah

I am an adjunct faculty member who wishes to defend her PhD dissertation but needs additional funds to complete a semester at UB. My background is in cultural anthropology with an emphasis on religion, both major world religions, and alternative religions and healing practices, tribal religions of the world, specifically Africa and Native North and South America. I am well versed in other world civilizations and gender studies, as well.

I am well-respected, well-spoken, and responsible. I am skilled in English and would be an asset to someone who is struggling to read and write. I have raised successful children and am working on the grandchildren. I have worked on a Native American reservation in Nevada and several mental health facilities in Norfolk, Va. and as a nurse in the past, I have experience with pediatrics and teens.

I currently am employed by Niagara County Community College and teach cultural anthropology and a class on Oral Tradition, Folk Tales, and Fairy Tales from the world's cultures.

I am skilled in proof-reading, editing, vocabulary, public speaking, creative writing, spelling, grammar, reading comprehension, critical commentary, summaries and abstracts, term papers/projects, poetry and prose.

For a courteous and friendly comprehensive tutoring experience, try me out! Getting the best education you can is the most important thing for you to do right now; the future awaits.

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.

Public Speaking

I have taken several public speaking and communication classes in my educational career. I have also given many presentations as a graduate student and have publicly presented my research projects for my Masters and PhD dissertation at SUNY Buffalo. I have given lectures and have led recovery groups at a detox unit in Nevada and on the Paiute reservations in Las Vegas and Moapa Valley. I speak in front of a classroom audience at NCCC and have done so for the past eleven years. I am the President of the NCCC Adjunct Association and frequently have to publicly address concerns of the adjunct faculty.
