Debbie, a certified teacher for over 25 years, has taught grades K, 3rd, 4th, and 6th in public, private, and charter schools. Currently working with her husband in their professional tutoring business, she helps K-8 students achieve their potential by giving them a solid foundation in reading, writing, and arithmetic. They charge half of the current tutoring rate, so that more students can receive the help that they need to be successful, and they continually have a waiting list of students wanting to get into their program.
Peter is a former engineering manager and currently manages and teaches at their professional tutoring business. He teaches upper level mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus), science, and writing to middle school, high school, and college students. He designs his own math curriculum, which makes math very easy for the students to conquer.
Peter and Debbie supported and helped their children through elementary school, but because the local school district had labeled two of their children as “learning disabled” (they were taught the sight word reading method), Peter and Debbie eventually homeschooled all three of their children through middle school and high school. At the age of 16, all three of their children started college and earned over 30 college credits before graduating from high school. One “disabled” child had a 4.00 and the other “disabled” child had a 3.86 college GPA before graduating from high school, and all of their children continued through college, graduating with honors.
Peter and Debbie use a back to basics method (the three R’s), because it creates extremely successful students 100% of the time! By giving their students a solid foundation in reading, writing, and arithmetic, while incorporating the other subjects into the basics, their students gain self-confidence and an ability to master any subject. The world is at their fingertips! Students that have a command of these skills WILL achieve anything they want in life.
Debbie’s standardized test scores were always at the top in her district. Her secret is telling students they are smart, giving them a solid foundation in the three R’s, and reassuring them with a personal touch. Debbie wrote, and continues to write, her own curriculum to achieve this goal.
Debbie has received hundreds of ‘paper awards’ from her students! One of her students was a finalist in a nationwide book-writing contest, and two of her students were asked to give a performance at the New York National Arts Club.
Peter’s students succeed. Recently, one of his students was accepted into West Point, another Berkeley, and another Duke University. One of his students placed 1st at the regional contest for a speech he wrote, while yet another student received a ‘superior’ rating for his performance abilities at the district music challenge.
Debbie specializes in elementary education, phonetic reading, and mathematics.
Peter specializes in engineering, mathematics, and music.
Peter and Debbie are committed to doing their part to help change the United States’ low worldwide ranking in math and reading. They often volunteer their services to underprivileged children, and they apply a percentage of what they make on Teachers Pay Teachers towards college scholarships for their students.
