"I have fond memories of Ms. Hansen from grade school. I was fortunate to have had her as my 6th grade history teacher. Her teaching style is that of patience and persistence and an uncanny ability to connect with those she teaches.
Her enthusiasm and optimism are contagious and create the perfect learning environment for any age student."
"Mrs. Debra, thank you for being a wonderful tutor. We are not sure if we ever properly expressed how much we feel thankful to you for the help and influence you gave to [our daughter]. Your tutoring became a "God send" as she turned around in her ability to start to succeed -which gave her confidence to try to apply herself. You have completely changed my 10 yr old from an average student to A B honor roll student since August of this year. Thank you for being willing to step in. We know she could not have done it without you and forever we are so thankful for you.
With thanks, Grateful Parents"
"It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Deborah Hansen. She has tutored my son for his reading comprehension and writing skills..
Before the sessions started, she listened carefully to our concern. Sessions with Deborah were focused and kind. My son has enjoyed her weekly sessions and felt more confident to take tests. My son's language arts grade improved from a B to an A in just four sessions.
We highly recommend that parents consider enrichment tutoring with Deborah Hansen."
"Deborah Fairchild Hansen is one of my former teachers when I was in “junior high”. She’s worked with [my daughter] this summer for maintenance and skill building. I highly recommend her services if you’re looking for a professional tutor."
Thanks, Julie Hudson!
"My son's school told us in early Spring that he was probably going to fail the 4th grade. We contacted Deborah and she worked with him until the end of the year. He passed!"
"Deborah tutored my daughter for 2 years during 5th and 6th grade. She helped consolidate math fundamentals and provided guidance in reading and language arts skills. With Deborah's help, my daughter's grades improved significantly. She has the ability to figure out the unique needs of her students and tailor sessions to the individual. I would strongly recommend Deborah to anyone looking to help their child improve their grades."
"As a concerned parent that is willing to help my child in any way possible, I highly recommend Ms. Deborah Hansen as a potential tutor for your child.Ms. Hansen was the only tutor we considered because of her qualifications, flexibility, realistic goals and she came with a strong character reference from our 20-year-old daughter. She
worked with my 15-year-old son for five weeks. The focus was on his writing skills or lack thereof.
In the short time Ms. Hansen worked with my son, I observed the following:
She gained the trust of a shy and reserved 15-year-old boy by asking him about his likes and interests and made the lessons relevant to those. At times, it seemed like he was learning without realizing it. She pointed out his strengths and gave him the confidence he was lacking in his skills. She proved to him that he could write.
After week 4 of his tutoring, I witnessed my son complete a writing assignment with more ease and less frustration than he had before.
I would not hesitate to call on Ms. Hansen again or to recommend her to anyone seeking help for their child."
Deborah tutored 6 of my 7 children from age 3 to age 12. She was professional, comprehensive, super prepared, and a joy to be around. I found her weekly reports to be spot on in discerning where the children were improving and showing where they still needed help. She was creative and flexible with our schedule. We will miss her and are sad that she will no longer be traveling to the Ponte Vedra area, but what is our loss will be your gain Mandarin! All the best to you Deborah and hope to see you soon!
