About Deborah

I have nine years social studies teaching experience in both public and private schools and hold a Virginia Secondary teaching license. For the past three years I taught at a small, independent, values-based, leadership academy in Maryland. There I took on a variety of roles, developing curriculum, integrating leadership standards and expectations, serving as a mentor and adviser, providing opportunities for student research and upholding high standards of professionalism. I was generous with my time and talents in preparing students for college-level work. I also tutored students weekly on preparation for the SAT in math and vocabulary, as well as administering the test and tutoring students for the SAT history subject test. I taught dual enrollment sociology for three years through John Tyler Community College. My master's of science degree in sociology from the University of Oxford provided me with strong background in statistics, qualitative and quantitative studies and writing. Because of my studies abroad, I am able to bring a more global perspective and intimate understanding of world cultures and society than many other teachers. I have also made it a point to continue to enrich myself and develop as a teacher by attending teacher workshops and conferences and reading the latest journals and literature. My latest trip took me to Israel, where I studied at the Hebrew University for tew weeks.

I have a strong rapport with students. I enjoy the process of working one-on-one with them to help improve study skills, to achieve higher scores on tests by learning HOW to study. I also have helped them through the writing process for papers, research projects and college essays. I also have experience in helping students with public speaking, speech writing, and coaching drama.
