Deb is a terrific tutor! I was looking for advice on developing crossword puzzle skills. Deb took time in advance of the session - she came prepared with materials and thoughtful remarks. She sent follow-up materials that are very informative. Most importantly, she was on-time, upbeat and easy to work with on crossworld puzzle skills. Thank you Deb!

My daughter has just arrived in the United States in sixth grade. Without Deborah's patience to help her, she would feel more difficult.Deborah taught her to read and write while helping her with difficult homework. Thank you Deborah.

Deborah is a great tutor. She has helped me with my pronunciation and how to reduce my accent in speaking. She is an experienced and patient tutor that I ever have met. You can tell that she's genuinely loved tutoring and I have improved a lot after few weeks and looking forward to have more lessons with her.

She taught me how to download email and send it when there is an underlying problem with the system. The glitch was holding up progress in my job. Deb is intuitive and communicates very well. She is easy to work with and good at explaining things. She treated the problem as if it were her own problem. I almost felt her energy come through the computer screen. She's good.

Deb was great with my daughter. She had a lot of patience with her and in one session, already gave her some great advise. I think my daughter and Deb will be a good fit.We are both looking forward to spending more time with Deb. Oh and her puppy is a bonus!

Deb is not only helping my son take control of his education but also giving me the peace of mind and direction I need to better support my kid! She takes the time to assess his needs and get to know what truly motivates my son. Just on our 2nd session so far but I can tell Deb is a true professional and loves what she does!! #myhero

Deb has been a pleasure to work with. I appreciate the way Deb provides different methodologies to understand concepts. For example I have been given tools such as apps that provide flashcards to include how to pronounce the words. We have recently also incorporated posters since I am a visual learner and a program that helps you stay on track with your homework. I love that Deb provides so much material that you can keep and refer to when studying. My fear when I was getting into this was that I would just get someone winging it and not have structure or to be frank get anything out of it. NOT the case with Deb you can tell that she has teaching experience from one former educator to another. I am hopeful that I will be speaking fluent Spanish in the near future thanks to Deb. If you are serious about learning and want a professional compassionate tutor you will not be disappointed with Deb.

My son had a really good writing tutor session with Deb. I think her approach is great. He seemed to enjoy it. She also provided very thorough feedback after the session.

I am very glad to have Deborah as my son's tutor. She goes out of her way to make sure his needs are met. Her sessions are effective and my son's teacher has noticed a difference in his writing. Highly recommended!
- Jennifer C. from Puyallup, WA
Deb has been very patient and kind with my son. She is the first tutor that my son actually likes going to. He told me he learns more in the time with her than all day in school. She knows how to teach him and he actually absorbs what she is teaching.
- Annika D. from Tacoma, WA
My son is in 6th grade middle school and has fallen behind when it comes to writting. Deb has been great with him giving him direction on how to write. He comes out of each session with a little more conference and it shows in his grades at school. I would highly recommend Deb if your child needs a tutor.
- Dennis H. from Orting, WA
Deborah definitely knows her subjects very well, and this is backed by her extensive teaching experience at various colleges in California and Washington. She is very friendly and humble, and nothing about her demeanor is intimidating or demanding. I think that is a very important quality for a teacher to have. She is very thorough in her work and will use all the resources necessary to make sure her student is armed and ready in order to continue the learning experience outside of session times. She has indefinite patience, and will only move on when the student has acquired the necessary skills and knowledge. Deborah definitely exceeded my expectations as a tutor. She does her work because she loves it, because it's her passion, and it shows in the way she carries it out. I would definitely recommend Deborah as your personal tutor!

Deb is the most responsible teacher I have hired for my son's academic study through this website. We are lucky to have her to help out with college application this time. She did an incredible job.
- Jin H. from Spanaway, WA
Deb R. does an excellent job tutoring both my children in multiple subjects. They enjoy and look forward to working with Deb. She is kind, nurturing and direct in a way the kids really respond to. We plan to continue using her.

I hired Ms. Deborah to help me with public speaking. My current profession is in sales so I wanted to improve my presentation skills and ability to talk in front of groups of people. Our first session was really great, she gave me some advice about how to be a better public speaker (ex: voice inflection, how to stand in front of a group, how to use power point when presenting, etc.) She even made me give a presentation on any subject of my choosing so she could see where I needed improvement. Now mind you, I was very nervous in our first session but Ms. Deborah has an uncanny way of making you feel very comfortable and at ease. In our 2nd session we did a lot of voice training. She showed me various techniques to improve my voice inflection when speaking in front of groups and individuals. Would I hire Ms. Deborah again? YES!!! I think anyone who is lacking in certain skills would definitely benefit from Ms. Deborah's tutoring. The sessions that I had with Ms. Deborah helped me build my confidence about public speaking and giving presentations.

My daughter has been going to Deb for about a month. Deb is an awesome instructor and really gets my daughter to engage. She is learning very quickly and will be speaking Spanish in no-time.
- Bob G. from Bonney Lake, WA
We really think we found a great tutor and person to support our son with study skills. Deb has really helped give him and us some tips and advice, we have seen huge improvements in his handwriting and the checking of his work, also asking questions when he does not understand. He enjoys his study lesson with Deb and we value her advice, which is down to earth and realistic. We would recommend Deb, we see and feel the growth in our son. Thank you Deb.

Deborah is so patient, kind, and helpful! She helped me complete last minute details of finishing my book. She also took the time to email me possible publishers for my book. I truly appreciate her help and follow-up list of publishers!
- Linda J. from Auburn, WA
My daughter has been meeting with Deb for a couple months now. She has helped her with math and writing and my student has had great improvement. Deb has not only helped her with the basic fundamentals but even more importantly her confidence in both subjects. She really looks forward to seeing her each week. I can really tell that Deb really cares about her students and enjoys teaching them. We couldn't of wished for a better tutor or person.
- Tracy H. from Tacoma, WA
