My son and I are very happy with Mary and I personally cannot believe how inspired I was selecting her from the several options I had on WyzAnt. Aside from perfect pedagogical skills and a wonderful personality, she is highly trained in her field and customizes her tutoring to her student's needs, keeping pace with how these needs evolve. She is also very good at incorporating feedback from the parents and making the students feel good about their performance and progress without "overdoing" it. All in all a perfect match for my 9 year old son who was "stuck in" phonetic spelling and was not able to move on to correct spelling on his own. We are VERY happy we met her and we recommend her without any reservations!!

I held regular sessions approximately once a week, but students would often request extra sessions prior to exams/papers/quizzes. I have a passion for academia. I have taken sever... ... More
Deborah has been tutoring my son for a few weeks now. The sessions have been informal, yet still challenging. This is an important aspect as my son was initially apprehensive about the idea of being tutored. However, he has been completing the homework he gets, and even works a little harder to quickly finish the books he's reading. There is no question that his resolve to work this hard is due to a friendly learning environment, and his respect for Deborah.

My daughter does not enjoy writing and every time we tried ways to make write, she always found excuses. Debbie has been very good and patient with her. She has found the areas my daughter needs help with and for once my daughter is not complaining about writing. We look forward to continuing to work with her.
Over the last few months my daughter has gone from being a reluctant writer to somebody who is enjoying writing. Debbie has been a great teacher and I highly recommend her. Thanks Debbie!

I've been tutoring and teaching Russian language for the last four years. Most of my students are kids, some start learning while still at preschool, most are elementary and middle school students.
