About Barbara

Tutoring with a science twist! I have been teaching elementary special needs students for 20 years both in Iowa and Arizona. I love teaching all elementary subjects and excel at making it fun and interesting. In the past five years my teaching and personal interests have become more space education related. I've been to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama three times. Twice as an educator and once with a group of students from Miami, Florida as a chaperone. I take all this science stuff and use it as a reinforcement for students. At the end of the tutoring, I will engage the student in a scientific activity - hands-on activities, sharing an absolutely, positively awesome scientific artifact (I have so many things to share with students - meteorites, fossils, etc.). Not only will the tutoring subject be learned but the students will learn something science related. A win - win!

I consider my teaching skills to be at a high standard with the student being the most important aspect of the tutoring and the success in the academic area(s).
Tutoring will be a joy, not a chore. Hope to see you soon!
