“Debbie is an amazing teacher who offers her services at a reasonable price. She made learning fun and always had a special surprise for my children at the end of each lesson. She tutored both of my kids and helped them to excel in their reading.”
Students' Parent - Tutoring
“Mrs. Heiden makes learning Spanish fun! Her combination of games, songs, books, and activities really engages the children so they have a great time while learning. My kids have smiles on their faces during the whole lesson.”
Students' Parent - Spanish Lessons
“Mrs. Heiden was such a blessing to my children! She tutored them for three years. She puts so much time and thought into her lesson plans. My children played games during every lesson with Mrs. Heiden while learning how to read and to build their writing skills.”
Students' Parent - Reading Lessons
“I highly recommend Mrs. Heiden for piano lessons! Her love of both the piano and her students exudes in the way she teaches. She works with each child at their own pace and based on their strengths. She incorporates their learning style to help them learn the keys, new music, and any new finger work. She is extremely engaging and makes learning fun, even with my most reluctant learner.”
