Debra was outstanding in helping my daughter prepare for her end-of-the-year Spanish finals. She successfully clarified areas of confusion and intuitively worked on areas that would most likely be challenging. As a result, my daughter did great on her finals. Debra worked extremely well with my daughter, and I highly recommend her as a tutor. She is kind, professional, flexible, and highly capable. We can't thank Debra enough.
