About Debbie F.

HI! Are you looking for a teacher who can help you write and speak English better? Do you need an acting coach? Great! I've been doing all that for students for over 20 years. I have a California teaching credential and experience in public and private schools. I know how to communicate so you can learn. In addition, I'm a published writer. In my online classes I can take you to the next level no matter where you are today. My experience with students of all ages will help you write better essays, stories and reports, give better speeches and presentations, and know how to prepare and perform monologues and scenes. Getting better at anything comes in steps, and I love it when my students feel proud and confident when they accomplish something new.

Debbie has been a great tutor and a good friend. Both my mother and I took tutoring classes from her. She is very professional and always has interesting activities for students that suit all ages and all levels. She made her class very interesting, and we learned a lot about culture, idioms, and books. Definitely recommend her.

Ms. Debbie Foulkes was the fondest memory of school for me. She was patient,kind, optimistic.I remember her being so fun as well. We all have that one teacher from school that we never forget , she was mine. I would recommend her to anyone.

I hired Debbie in 2014 to tutor my son in English and History (8th grade). Then in 2017-2019 she was tutoring my daughter in English and composition. Debbie is an excellent tutor in English, composition, reading, writing, grammar and anything that’s related to English and history. She’s creative with her lessons plans. Not only can tailor her time to help with completing homework assignments and projects due, she can also come up with lesson plans for individual needs.

I had Debbie Foulkes as a drama teacher in high school and I could definitely list her as one of my top favorite teachers... the kind you remember years later as the ones who helped shape you into the person you turned out to be. I was an extreme introvert and she really helped me to come out of my shell. She could be tough when needed, especially when working on plays, and through that she was able to bring out the best in us. She was also very patient and supportive when I brought any kind of teen angst into the rehearsals. I knew she cared and I also knew that she expected nothing short of my very best. She was also a lot of fun and has a great sense of humor! I would highly recommend her.
