She was very good with my 9 year old. He is often a tough cookie and she did a wonderful job of working with him.
Barbara is fantastic. Not only is she a great teacher/tutor, but she cares about Andrew and his work. He is doing well under her. They respect one another, so happy we found her. A total jewel.
Barbara is a great tutor. She helped my son prepare for his speech and coached him on pronunciation, grammar, and sentence structural, tone and body language. Very reliable.
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.
I began teaching elementary school twenty years ago. I have an elementary teaching credential from the state of California. I have taught prekindergarten, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade and sixth grade.
I have also tutored students of various ages and grades. I have helped students to become better readers and writers. I have helped them to enhance math skills as well as helped with homework skills and study skills.
