About Debbie

I come from a family of educators, so the love of learning and knowledge was instilled in me at a young age. I have a passion for learning, and an even greater love of sharing what I know with others, There is nothing more rewarding to me than seeing the look in a student's eyes when they understand a new idea or concept, and feel proud about their hard work and accomplishments. There is no greater gift than the acquisition of knowledge.

I hold a Master's Degree in School Counseling, and a bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education in all of the Social Sciences. I have 25 years of being a Homebound and private tutor for students from Kindergarten through all ages of adults. I also have experience in the College Selection Process, and Essay Writing for college applications. I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you. We can accomplish anything we set our minds to together! Knowledge is power!!

I have an Undergraduate Degree in all Social Sciences, including Anthropology.

I have 25 years of experience teaching Study Skills to students of all ages. Study Skills are the key to much academic success.

I am certified in all Social Sciences and have an Undergraduate Degree in this field.

I have sat on the Educational Team and IEP Teams in my district for over 20 years. I am very familiar with the accommodations used to instill academic success for students with ADD/ADHD, as well as other Special Needs.

I look forward to hearing from you so we can work towards a better YOU!! Education makes the Nations! Together we can do great things!! I have all the confidence in the world in 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.

Phonics

I have K-12 certification in School Counseling, and have been a Homebound Tutor in my district for 25 years. I have taught elementary, middle, and high school students. I am comfortable that I have the ability to teach phonics, as I taught my own children how to read.

Social Studies

I am secondary certified in Social Studies, History, Economics, Sociology, Anthropology, and Geography. I have taught all of these courses.

Sociology

I am certified to teach Sociology in the state of RI, and have done so in the past.

Special Needs

I am a school counselor, certified K-12. I have been a Homebound Tutor for 25 years, and the majority of students had special needs. I am neat, empathetic, and patient. I also sit on the Educational Team and help write IEP's and 504's so students receive the appropriate accommodations to help them be successful.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills for students of all ages, via homebound tutoring, teaching in the classroom, and in my role as a guidance counselor.
