So helpful!

Meeting with Debra was great. She really took the time to help me with my business plan and was a great listener. She was very goal oriented on what I wanted to takeaway from our first meeting and followed up afterwards.

Friendly, Knowledgable, and Well Informed

Debra was great, she is very knowledgeable and informed about the coursework. I will most likely hire her again for my corporate finance course as she has worked with NYU students before. So this is a plus as she is familiar with the course material.

Just amazing

Debra is an incredible tutor. I was in a bind for my accounting exam and we met a few times and I immediately felt more confident. She explains everything in a simplistic manner and is such a nice person! Highly recommend.

The Real Deal

Debra saved my life. She is very quick to respond. In person she is personable while still staying laser focused on the tasks at hand. She is so smart, and she is able to explain things so simply which helped me to understand the material for the first time since I had started my course. I'm so thankful I found her.
