Hello! My name is Teacher Deborah JZ. I live in the United States of America. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree from Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. I’ve taught piano for 17 years, and I homeschooled my own two children for 13 years.
I also taught English Grammar and writing at a local homeschooling co-op and tutored Persuasive Writing, Mathematics, Latin, Geography, Science, and Logic & Reasoning with the same organization.
Outside of school, I enjoy martial arts, playing the piano, reading, growing roses, taking care of my cats, and exploring the outdoors with my husband and children. I love to teach with humor and fun games.
My teaching experience also includes teaching children on the VIPKID platform where I taught levels 1 through 6. I taught there for 4 years. During that time, I taught 8,126 lessons, and 1,502 students in all.
It is my goal to make learning fun, educational, and interactive. I am great at scaffolding lessons to fit the needs of each individual student. My past feedback from parents includes- scaffolding, TPR-body language, patient, listening, detail oriented, student encouragement, pronunciation, error correction, facial expressions, and classroom environment.
My goal while teaching your child is to help them excel in learning English and become proficient speaking the English language.
I can’t wait to see you in the classroom! 🙂
