About Deborah

I am a certified teacher having relocated from Missouri to my home state of Tennessee. I have been tutoring and teaching home school students since my return. While my certification is in business education, I have taught Personal Finance, Technology, Religion, World Geography, and Government here. I also supported students preparing for their GED and ACT tests.

Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment is my passion. I have trained for the past two years in this tool and have seen tremendous improvement in my students' abilities to master test taking, problem solving, organization, and math.

IQ is not a static number. It can be changed! Let me help.

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.

Accounting

My BA and Masters are in Business Education. My specialty when in accounting was the "grunt work" so to speak. I enjoyed the daily organization of dr's and cr's and making sure that everything was done correctly. My work required accounting through profit and loss as well as budgeting.

I think I can help you be successful.

Business

I am a certified business educator having spent 13 years teaching middle school and high school business courses.

Career Development

I am a certified teacher having taught business courses for 13 years. My courses included topics such as Office Tech, Keyboarding, Office Products, Personal Finance, and Career Pathways.

Desktop Publishing

In 13 years I have used Publisher in the classroom and in my husband's business for advertising and billing. We have also used Publisher in school organizations to create Thank You cards for teachers and parents and to support our Troops overseas.

Microsoft Publisher

I have used Publisher in the classroom for presentations and forms. My students have used this program to create cards to support military organizations, other students, and their teachers. Publisher is also a good program for miscellaneous forms in business. I use it for my husband's company forms.

Public Speaking

As a classroom teacher I am a public speaker. My students have created and presented speeches and prepared business plans to their peers, assisting their classmates better understand topics. Students often understand topics better when presented in the words of their peers.

QuickBooks

As an accountant I have used Quickbooks with small business clients. As a high school accounting teacher I also taught Quickbooks because few of the companies I supported could afford a full time accountant or bookkeeper and it was easy to train business people to use the program.

Reading

Reading requires phonetic identification and practice. I am also trained in a cognitive program that increases a students ability to focus and learn called Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment.

This combination is essential to comprehension and cognition.

Writing

I have used writing skills both as an accountant and a teacher. My students presented speeches and business plans and were required to have discussions on a variety of topics. Reading and writing are skills that can be learned but often times barriers prevent capable students from getting there.
