About Barbara

I was hard working assistant at the stock market in San Francisco. I loved the challenges and pressure. In 1995 I gave birth to twins and chose to stay home with them. We moved to Elk Grove to give them a great school district and wonderful hometown. I was a full time volunteer in both their classes from kindergarten through middle school, assisting teachers with one on one tutoring and many tasks including assessment testing. During that time I returned to college to finish by degree in liberal studies.
After those years I was a full time caregiver for two family members. I have always wanted to work with children and reading skills for many reasons. I love reading now, but when I was young, I struggled. I was very fortunate to receive help from excellent tutors and teachers. I overcame my challenges and reluctance to even try.

I know what it feels like to fall behind other students in the class and want to give up. I want to help the next generation the way I was helped.

Now my children are in college and I can focus on my original goal of helping children develop their own love of reading and build their confidence. I believe early intervention is the best solution, and reading has to be fun. I began reading to my own children from day one and continued this for years. Both my children love reading today and are doing well in college.

My degree in Liberal Studies exposed me to all subject matter for grades K-6, and my experience as a parent volunteer always focused on reading and language arts. I love children and have endless patience and want to encourage reading.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

While at Sacramento State, I earned my degree in Liberal Studies with a focus on Early Childhood Education. I worked in the preschool as a parent volunteer while my children attended. I was also a super volunteer parent in their classes from kindergarten through middle school and assisted teachers with one on one tutoring and many other duties. The job I enjoyed the most was doing assessment testing. I was very excited to see the progress from week to week and year to year with the students. I did a lot of one on one tutoring for the students who needed extra help and enjoyed that also. I have endless patience.
