"My name is Debbi H. and I have been an educator / teacher my whole life in some form or another! Starting in my Catholic school upbringing where I began Sunday School teaching (to a kindergarten class) and growing to private tutoring. After College graduation, I ventured into public school classroom teaching (grades Pre-K-8th grade) and continued private tutoring. My experiences have led to a specialty in Reading and Math Intervention whereby I remediate, retrain, engage and build confidence in my students.

My lessons do not always focus on specific academic skill building, but often involve personal social, emotional (and sometimes physical) development in order to empower a student to learn effectively. I weave in activities to help develop a student's love for learning to last a lifetime. Additional life skills are also often included in my lessons, depending on a student's individual needs. This may include organization, study skills, time management, and general exercises for personal focus and mindfulness.
