About Barbara

I am a native of Brazil, who has lived in the U.S for almost 40 years. I have taught English, ESL, Portuguese and Social Studies for almost as long. I am an enthusiastic person, who loves learning and teaching and who has a passion for language, literature, history and geography. I am licensed and taught in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, California and now, in Colorado. In 1998, while teaching in Massachusetts I received an award, called “You are Special”, from Framingham Public Schools for my dedication to my students and their success.

My expectations for my students are that they will work hard, and enjoy the process of learning. I believe everyone can learn, but different people have different rhythms, so I give my students the time to learn according to their needs.

Expect to get homework and check point assessments to measure your progress.

Though I have a 24-hour policy for cancellation, I understand that emergencies happen and I am glad to accommodate reasonable changes.

I teach at my place or at the student’s home. I expect punctuality of myself as well as my students.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your learning objectives!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught students of all ages for more than 30 years. Additionally, I am fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese. I can help with college papers and help students improve their writing skills.

I have a degree in English and Portuguese, as well as an MBA in Marketing and International Business.

Social Studies

I taught fifteen years of Social Studies in Massachusetts, and am licensed to teach there, as well as in Colorado. I passed the Praxis test in Social Studies in October of 2013.
