Tutor with Many Skill Sets
I am a college graduate who was an RN for 17 years. During that time, I home schooled my three boys for eight years, and just completed being my youngest son's learning coach for online school from 2011 to 2013. I have taught science, math, algebra, history, spelling, language, phonics geometry, math analysis, and many other classes. I have also taken the NCLEX in the past.

I am a college graduate who was an RN for 17 years. During that time, I home schooled my three boys for eight years, and just completed being my youngest son's learning coach for online school from 2011 to 2013. I have taught science, math, algebra, history, spelling, language, phonics geometry, math analysis, and many other classes. I have also taken the NCLEX in the past. I was also in the military and scored very well on the ASVAB test. I have taken many college level classes in anatomy and physiology, psychology, sociology, chemistry, and nursing. I use many different learning techniques because I understand that every person learns differently. I use visual, memorization, verbal, mnemonics, notes, tables, examples, reading, writing, hands-on, etc. It depends on the student's specific strengths. I was also an aid for 1 1/2 years for a child with Down-Syndrome, using many different techniques to help her understand her school materials. I was a pediatric nurse for many years, as well as tutoring a few children privately at different intervals. I am a tutor at the local high school for their AVID program as well. I am currently writing an ACT prep curriculum, and I have had great success with students improving their scores after taking ACT prep with me. I have also started using the Explode the Code curriculum with children who struggle with reading or have dyslexia. This is an Orton-Gillingham curriculum that is written with the focus on dyslexia. I love working with children or adults, so I hope I can meet your needs.

Very patient tutor
Debra is always very patient with my son who has severe Tourettes, he always has a better grasp of his subject after going over it with her. We have had 30 lessons with her now and will be continuing through the summer to keep him on track, I honestly don't know how he would have made it without her extra help. We would recommend her to anyone!Danielle, 62 lessons with Debra

Explains things quickly and thoroughly. Willing to dedicate the time to things you need extra help with. Got a 100 on my math test after a few weeks of working with her.Scott, 13 lessons with Debra
Amazing tutor for my son!
Debra tutored my son several days a week June-August this summer so he wouldn't regress in what he had learned while in kindergarten. She was great for him, she was patient, smart, honest, and kind. I could tell in the way that she spoke to him that his education truly mattered to her and that she enjoyed helping people. I'm sure we will be contacting her again next summer as well! It was truly a joy to see her work with and be so kind to my sensitive ADHD child! Thank you Debra!Elizabeth, 67 lessons with Debra
Deb is a wonderful tutor. My daughter was struggling in Chemistry. She has been able to explain things to my daughter in 3 sessions that her instructor couldn't do in 2 months. She helped my daughter understand what she got wrong on quizzes and even went so far as to reach out to the instructor when a question was unclear. She has gone from failing when we started three weeks ago to a "C" now and after she retakes her quizzes I expect a "B' or better. I would recommend her highly to anyone! I can't say enough about how wonderful she is, I just wish I had found her 4 weeks ago!Michele, 15 lessons with Debra
SIMPLY THE BEST

Debra is a great tutor
Debra helps my son with Geometry. We really did not know what to expect. The first time he came back from meeting with Debra, he was so excited because she explained the concepts in a way that he finally understood. She relates well to my son. According to him, she is nice, smart, patient, and she explains difficult concepts in a simple way. I highly recommend her.Brandon, 66 lessons with Debra
