About Barbara

I am an experienced elementary educator who is certified as a reading specialist.
It's mid year and as a teacher I know it's a great time to give your child all the extra help they can in order to be successful. Often times a little extra time in a small group setting is all they need.
I love working with kids! Will meet you at your home, in a library or other public place. Flexible scheduling!
I can pinpoint exactly what weaknesses and strengths the student might have and work on those issues.
Homework help is also a possibility.

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.

I can pinpoint exactly where a student might have a weakness and through regular tutoring will be able to strengthen students' skills.

I would be highly qualified to assist students in the area of phonics. I am certified as a remedial reading specialist. I have worked as one for several years . I am now working in the elementary education classroom and have seen students improve with attention in small group instruction.
