About Deborah

I recently retired after teaching for 31 years. I taught Preschool-3rd grade. I became a Reading Specialist 15 years ago. I worked as a Reading Specialist for 12 of those years. I have tutored many students K-6 both in school and privately. I have had an excellent record of moving students up several grade levels tutoring twice a week over a year's time. I begin by testing and finding out a student's beginning level. I design lessons to support and push them from where they are performing at any given time. I do regular spot tests to see if it is time to raise the challenge.

I expect students to work hard and be respectful during tutoring sessions. I understand that life happens and that there will be times a student will not be able to attend a session. If notified in 24 hours or more, no fee will, be charged, however, if a student fails to notify me and misses a session, or lets me know under two hours in advance, I will expect full payment. If notification is less than 24 hours up to two hours before a session, I am willing to set up an alternative session time for no additional charge.

In return, I will be on time, be respectful to the student, and give my clients timely notice if I need to cancel or reschedule. I consider any discussion time with parents to be counted as part of the tutoring time and will be part of any charges made to my account.

I am willing to travel up to 15 miles away to tutor.

I expect students to work on skills and/or put in regular daily reading time appropriate to the age level of the child. I expect parents to encourage their child and help them record their practice times. While I have seen children make some progress tutoring once a week, twice or more times a week is ideal and will result in a much more dramatic outcome.

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.
