About Debbie

When I was younger I had the opportunity to work as a volunteer with special needs children. I gained much satisfaction with that experience, and I had good responses from parents. My work with the children lead me to choose a career in education. I specialized in tutoring in the areas of reading, phonics, and language arts. I taught Special Education successfully for nine years. I obtained my Bachelor's of Elementary Education at Temple University in 1979 with a 3.8 average. Then I obtained my Master's of Education in 1981, and my Permanent Certification to teach upon graduation. My goal is to keep the students challenged, but not overwhelmed.

I usually work with students in a one-on-one setting while praising them for their good work. I am skilled in the area of behavioral modification techniques as I studied them in college. It is always best to reinforce the positive as often as possible. I try to be flexible with time, however, I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, and I have an office in Philadelphia where the student can work in a quiet setting. In conclusion, I hope to hear from you and I look forward to working with you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Grammar

I have studied grammar at the undergraduate level, and passed with a 4.0 grade.
Keeping that grade in mind, I was successful in teaching the subject in my classes.
Through testing after each lesson my students improved much in the subject.

Phonics

I studied how to use phonics, to teach at the elementary level, at the undergraduate level at Temple University from 1976 - 1979. I have a Bachelors of Elementary Education.

Through showing students how to sound out vowels, and putting them in words and sentences, the students had much success.

I used behavior modification techniques to reward all positive experiences they demonstrated.

Reading

I would be enthusiastic about tutoring. The two degrees I received from Temple University show that I am very qualified for the position as one degree is a Bachelors of Elementary Education. The other is Masters of Education with a focus on special needs elementary aged students.
